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.

Deliciousness! This is a very authentic Georgian (the Country) experience. The restaurant is a family affair with a Mother, Daughter and Son operation. The restaurant interior and décor is charming, warm and inviting. The service was personable and informed on the menu and preparation of items we inquired about. We enjoyed a number of shared dishes and every single one was mouth-watering! I am not calling them by their traditional names, but we savored every morsel of the following: the bread/cheese/egg dish; the dumplings, the assortment of "spreads" with the traditional bread, a tomato/cucumber salad and the honey cake for dessert. Yumm! I could eat here every day@ I will most definitely be back and highly recommend.

Food and service were fantastic. We couldn’t choose a wine so the server brought us a few to taste and made the perfect recommendation. Overall a perfect dinner out. Make sure you make a reservation though.

Went with my family (party of 5) for my birthday dinner and was not disappointed. The khachapuri and khinkali were excellent. I split the kababi with my wife. Others at the table had the ojakhuri and the mtsvadi. The pear lemonade (imported from Georgia in bottles) was also good, though a bit sweet for my taste. Definitely will be returning.

This is a surprise find. It’s very rare that you find Georgian cuisine in any city in America. The food is exceptionally good. I definitely recommend to try this restaurant.

We met Ella & Niko when they were constructing the inner walls of the restaurant. The energy and devotion we felt from that conversation brought us back to enjoy a meal and we were not disappointed. We made a reservation.. PLEASE MAKE A RESERVATION for the best service. We arrived early and were seated, presented menus and allowed to ask as many questions as we wanted. We started with the Dip Tour and moved to the the savory dumplings. So many flavors that just danced across my tongue. I have never had Georgian food or tasted the flavors. We also tried Georigan wines, delicious.
While there, our eyes caught Ella back in the kitchen and she promptly came out to say hello to us. Her devotion and love to helping you experience her Georgian foods makes you want to come back to experience the whole menu.
Tip: if you have the dumplings, pick them up by the top, tip them over to eat. They are a finger food :).
We finished the night with a egg topped bread boat. This was very filling, a bit rich but again, delicious. We were way too full to try a dessert but will be back again.

We enjoyed our first of what we expect to be many visits to this charming little restaurant in downtown Vancouver last night. Our son & daughter-in-law had raved about the stuffed breads there so we knew we were in for a treat. They were spot on, this place was excellent. The staff was very helpful in explaining the various dishes and were attentive throughout the meal without being obtrusive. The food promptly served and was not only delicious but also skillfully prepared, seasoned, and beautifully plated. When I ducked into the kitchen to compliment them on a job well done you could see the pride that Ella & Nico take in the inspired dishes that they are serving. We look forward to our next visit in the very near future.

The space is warm and welcoming and the staff are super helpful and attentive. I really enjoyed the Georgian wine choices. I also enjoyed the appetizers. The main dish was more lackluster. I would return to this place to explore the menu further.

We booked a table in advance and so received table service but I believe it is counter service for walk-in customers and there’s a patio out the back but alcohol isn’t permitted out there.

We enjoyed our Dinner at DEDIKo. We were seated immediately on arrival. This is a small restaurant so this was great. The food was excellent. Every dish was well prepared and Delicious. The Georgian cuisine was new to all of us. We stated with the Georgian Sampler, it was varied with great tasting items but definitely needed more bread to enjoy all the items. We had all 3 of the soups and the were all great, I sampled them all personally. The Bread with the cheese and an egg on top was the hit of all the dishes. I wouldn't share next time. We will definitely be back.

This is an excellent Georgian restaurant with delicious food and a comfortable, friendly setting. I love what they've done with the place (which used to be Woody's Tacos) and the service was just right. We will definitely go back.

DEDIKo is our new favorite restaurant! We've been twice and loved the food both times. You definitely need to make reservation as seating is very limited, but service is good. I love that it's a family restaurant! The food is melt-in-your-mouth delicious and has unique flavors. We've liked everything we ordered!

They sat us quickly. You must make a reservation. There was a video displaying the Georgian sights on the wall which was mostly just a distraction. I would personally just not have that. I would have liked more refills on my water, but I drink a lot of water.

One of our items came out as pork instead of chicken like we ordered but they were happy to exchange it. Unfortunately it has to go home with me as I was full by the time it came out, but it made a great lunch for the next day!

I can’t say exactly what we had as I don’t remember the names. There is something we have affectionately named the “cheese boat”. It’s baked bread with cheese and an egg in the middle. It’s served for you to mix it up. It reminded me of my childhood as my grandparents would always serve eggs with buttered French bread. We had a sort of puff pastry cheese bread as well which was fantastic. The dumplings were amazing. You pick them up from the bunched part and eat them from the bulbous part. There is juice inside that was the best broth I have ever had. I would love to pick up some of that juice to eat on it’s own.

I highly recommend this restaurant and hope it does well. Very specific ethnic food as it is from Georgia. The wines were all very good as well. We tried a red and a sweet white. It is very sweet that DEDIKo means momma and it’s a mother/son operation.

We arrived at 4:00 pm let the young man know we had a reservation and were given a paper menu to to look at and then order from the counter when we were ready.
A young woman took our order after answering some questions about the menu and told us to sit anywhere.
Food started arriving and it was fantastic.
20 minutes after 4pm I get a call asking if we still were planning on coming in for dinner. We all chuckled about that.
I felt that table service would have been better for this type of dining experience. Our check was $75 with tip and included two beverages.
We wiil definitely return to enjoy these delicious flavors.

We have eaten at DEDIKo only one time, but we intend to return, based on that experience. The food was as good as we hoped for and the service was attentive and professional. We look forward to returning here and working our way through the menu.

The restaurant is counter service, but the woman said she’d like to give table service since we made a reservation, which I thought was above and beyond. We loved the dumplings, and both their traditional fruit tea and their Turkish coffee were excellent.
