Georgian
Vancouver Now Has Its Very-Own Georgian Restaurant!
Dediko, owned by a mother-son team, serves the country’s famous stuffed breads and dumplings out of a cheery Evergreen Boulevard cafe. Dediko’s menu is stacked with the classics of that region, with a number of different khachapuri, soup-filled dumplings called khinkali, walnut-heavy vegetable dishes called phkali, and various grilled meats called mtsvadi. Also coming from the grill, Dediko’s kababi consists of a kebab-like grilled ground chicken patty with Georgian spices, folded in a roll of lavash flatbread. Nico Bakh is partial to a homey dish called lobio, a bean stew served in an imported Georgian pot, complete with a side of fermented vegetables and a Georgian cornbread called mchadi.

This was our 2nd time here after discovering it earlier this year. THAT in itself is saying something cuz we have rather high standards! Food and feel is cross between homey and upscale in a traditional "Georgian" kind of way. We enjoy the different spices they use a lot. Also love being able to support a family business.

Dediko was very yummy. You can tell everything was made from scratch. The cheesy bread and dumplings were amazing. It is a bit pricey but the quality is fantastic.

A taste of Georgia (think former Soviet Union). I recommend the borscht, the Georgian dumpling, and the honey cake. Place is cozy so make a reservation.

Service and food were good. I understand the staff wanting to end their work day, but it felt like we were being pushed out as soon as the clock hit 8:00pm.

This was just an all around outstanding experience! I was so pleasantly surprised by the lovely ambiance, the very pretty presentation of food, plus of course the taste-- it was incredibly flavored with unique spices I have never tasted before. I ordered the various dips platter and the mushroom filled dumplings, and my partner got the walnut chicken dish, and we were just floored by all of it. We'll definitely be back!

My husband and I finally got to try Dediko for my birthday and every good thing I’d heard about this quaint restaurant was proven true.

We ordered the Adjaruli Khachapuri (cheese boats), beef and pork Khinkhali (dumplings), chicken Mtsvadi, a bottle of Marani Saperavi (red wine), and finished with the baklava. The presentation was beautiful, but more importantly experiencing the flavors of each dish was a little piece of heaven on earth. Nothing disappointed and it all exceeded our expectations.

Our server (a daughter of the chef, her mom) was friendly and she recommended our wine which we loved. The aesthetic is peaceful and serene. We sat outside on a warm summer night and enjoyed every minute.

We are definitely coming back again!

Cute place, good service, decent food but not worth the price. Nice to support a local business instead of a chain, so that makes it worth paying more.

Inviting and tasty Georgian specialties including dumplings, kebabs and cheese-filled
puff pastry. Chef's Choice dessert was a truly memorable flaky torte-style wedge.
Though we brought our own bottle (DeLille D2) we noted that they have an expansive
selection of Georgian wines, which we will probably sample on our next visit.

Food was different but good. Tried 5 different dishes but felt pricey for what you get. 4 small piece of pork with potato wedges for $22 seems little high, ground chicken patty with wrap and potato wedges for $21.

An unexpected gem in Vancouver this place is phenomenal. We sat down and asked for a bottle of wine and three of their favorite dishes and were not disappointed. We had the Marani Saperavi wine and it was perfect for our dishes. She brought us the beef and pork dumplings with the Adjaruli cheese bread and the Pork Mtsvadi and all of it was incredible. We’ll be back to try every other dish on the menu without hesitation! The service was phenomenal and friendly, not to mention welcoming. Thanks for a fantastic date night.

The food here was absolutely great with unique flavors. Portions were generous and the only issue I had was wanting to try everything and not having room! Definitely will be back. As a side note, while we were dining, there were several people that came in without reservations and had to be turned away or told there would be a long wait. Make sure you make reservations!

We are both vegetarian, and it was great that we had several dishes to choose from.
The Georgian Dip Tour was excellent, even though one must be warned that the "variety of Georgian cheeses" from the description is basically four slices of cheese, which were very tasty but hardly make for a full meal (even though it is priced at $18, it is more of an appetizer). Still, I would definitely recommend this dish, as the phkali/spreads that came with it were amazing. Our favorite was, however, the bean stew (Lobio Pot), that we would definitely go back for. And the red wine (marani saperavi) was very good, too.

As for the less excellent bit, we ordered adjaruli (bread w/ fresh cheese filling topped w/ butter and egg) which was decent, but it tasted pretty generic, much like what we call burek in Eastern Europe, a simple pastry filled with cheese that can be bought at every corner for 2-3 bucks.

Honey cake that we ended the meal with was not a good idea. It was way too sweet, and I couldn't eat more than a few bites. I generally stay away from refined sugar, so that possibly contributed to a slight sugar-shock to my taste buds and should be taken as a caveat by a regular sweet-toothed patron.
We had drip coffee, which was OK as far as drip coffees go.

All in all, would definitely recommend the bean stew, the dip tour, and the wine - the rest we would skip next time.
The service was great and friendly, too.

First time eating Georgian food and it was amazing. The place is cute, the outside seating is really great, we loved the privacy. The service was good. But definitely the food is the star. Really yummy. It is pricey and unfortunately that’s the reason we will not be able to go more often. But we will be back!

My friend (89) and I asked for a choice by the waitress for starters, entrees, and wine. It was all Georgian food and wine and we enjoyed every bite and sip. Vancouver is so fortunate to have such a restaurant. Food with depth, variety, beauty, and wonder. It was worth every cent.

Took food recommendations and wasn’t completely satisfied with the food overall (the best dish was the bread boat which was delicious). I would definitely go again and try something different!
Server was very sweet, however, we felt extremely rushed at the end of our meal to leave.
