1 St time here (Monday Eve) and was very good Georgian food!
Big portions, great appetizers, the waiter was really helpful with food and wine selection. The Malbec was excellent. Parking was very easy. Good spot to meet family and friends.
Very delicious food. Awesome staff. Great place! Thank you
A lil pricey for that neighborhood... But overall is great! Food is unbelievably tasty!!! Very nice service as well! Shah (I believe that was his name) was our waiter helped us to choose the best in the menu according to our preferences. We really enjoyed! Thanks!!!
Great food, great service. Always. Consistently good.
The food was so different but still so tasty!! Got a yummy meat stew and drank amazing sangria... And the owner was so sweet! Can't wait to go back and sending all my friends ... And ps if ur not a cilantro / coriander fan you can always tell them to leave it out 😉
Food is carefully and deliciously prepared, welcoming environment and top notch service
I love coming to Marani. Everything from food to service is impeccable. Love the braised beef, Lola kebab, chicken on skewer, beet salad, French fries, chocolate mousse.
Went for a night out with my wife and we wanted something "different". We found the food, experience, service to be excellent. Will definitely go again!
It was a serendipitous choice of an ethnic novelty restaurant near Queens Blvd for a family birthday celebration. Each choice was interesting and filled with pleasant surprises. Although the menu is not large, it seemed to have enough to satisfy the foodies in my diverse group that includes vegetarians and stake eaters. Service was pleasant and efficient. We will definitely visit again and highly recommend it. Oh. and it is Kosher too.
First time. Food was delicious. Staff was attentive, polite, and helpful. Highly recommend this restaurant. Will definitely be returning.
This place kept coming up in search is for the best kosher restaurant in Queens. Then we got a personal recommendation from some friends. So, this week when we had people visiting from out of town who were based in Queens, we use this opportunity to visit. We were not disappointed. I had the watermelon salad as an appetizer, delicious and refreshing. As the main course I had the lamb stew, nicely spiced but not overly hot. Others in our group sampled the meat pie and dumplings. We were too full to eat dessert. We will definitely return to this restaurant, which is spacious, fairly priced, and nicely decorated.
This kosher Georgian restaurant, patronized mostly by locals, is a great introduction to Caucasian food. Georgian cuisine relies heavily on fresh herbs for seasoning and berries for intense flavor. Lamb is a favorite meat. Our waitress was extremely helpful in explaining the dishes and helping us choose an interesting selection of appetizers and main courses. Moreover, even though it was Mother's Day and they were very busy, there was absolutely no pressure on us to move along--we spent almost 3 hours lingering over a wonderful dinner. I'll go back and bring friends when I do.
We never at this type of cuisine before. The waitresses were extremely helpful recommending what we should and should not order as first time diners. They were also honest to advise us not to order too much food. All of the food was excellent tasting and nice size portions. We left extremely sated.
Our only criticism as that there are no condiments, dips, relishes, or bread on the table. Everything is ala carte.
We had an order of bread which we felt was bland and not worth purchasing. Enjoy the good tasting appetizers with our the bread.
Overall, we can not wait to return.
We enjoyed the combo appetizer to test all the dips and mixtures. The food was worth the stop and the service was excellent. Please try this place out!
You may not have tried Georgian food before, but it should definitely be on your list for regular ethnic eating. This was my third time at "Marani", and it did not disappoint. The appetizers - all with walnuts - are unique and very tasty. Every dish we had - a lamb kebab, plov (rice and meat), and the two chicken dishes we tried - were excellent. "Marani" is nicely decorated, but the food is very homey - like I would imagine I would get in a Georgian grandmother's kitchen. You get a lot of food for the price, as well, making it more than worth a visit. On one visit I went downstairs for the dairy meal - a "kachipuri", a kind of Georgian pizza. It was also excellent and fresh made.
