Yes it is a trek and the location is not fantastic but the food is the best chinese you will find in Tbilisi. The chive and egg dumplings were fresh and obviously hand made, no frozen dumplings in sight. The other 2 dishes we had were very tasty and well cooked. Staff are very friendly and the Maitre d' Susana spoke perfect English and was very helpful. The hotel is literally in the middle of nowhere near Tbilisi Sea and the exterior of the hotel definately needs a spruce up. Builders rubble and rubbish lying around everywhere, but look past this and enjoy the food. Good value also.

We are a family of expats living in Tbilisi. We are well-traveled and are big fans of Asian cuisine. Ever since we arrived to Tbilisi we have been looking for a good Chinese/Asian restaurant. We wanted a place that served delicious food but was also family friendly. Most Asian places in Tbilisi look like a mix of red light district and Kowloon. After asking for recommendations on several local groups we decided to eat at Ensemble Restaurant and I am so happy we did. Yes, it is a bit far, but is worth every minute. It is on the second floor of Hualing Tbilisi Hotel. It was spacious, clean and smoke-free. The waiters were super nice and attentive. You can find anything from swallownest to sea cucumber in their menu (though if you plan on eating these delicacies you need to order them 4 days in advance). We had meat dumplings (12 pieces), two kinds of fried rice, crispy chicken and noodles. Everything tasted incredible and portions were gigantic. We were three adults and 2 children and we could not finish it all. And it cost us just 100 gel (40$). I HIGHLY recommend this place. We will be regular clients here.

I've been 3-4 times at Ensemble and I always had great lunches, however last time it was really unbelievable delicious!!
I sincerely don't remember all names of the dishes (we tried around 15-18 dishes), however there were very nice spicy meat soups (named similar to the pepper Sichuan) that are still in my mind!! Service is very nice and helpful, they suggested very nice semi sweet wine that was delicious!!
Portions are quite big so...be careful when you'll order!!
I'll be back for sure!!

I've been here once and although it is pricier than most restaurants in Tbilisi, I think it is very goo value for money considering the overall experience, i.e. ambience, service, quality of food and prices.

This restaurant is in the 5-star Hualing Hotels & Preference (: what an unusually interesting name! :) near Tbilisi Sea. As far as I know, the simplest way to reach the restaurant, which is inside the 5-star hotel, is a taxi. The hotel is nice albeit rather empty when I went there and somewhat remotely located.

The ambience is simple and blends hints of Chinese decor with an otherwise elegantly minimalist interior. The staff are helpful and the service is effective. In fact, because there aren't too many people (: there were just 4 people including us in this 50-seater :), you'll get quite a lot of staff attention!

The menu is varied with lots of different dishes covering the various regions of China. I'd personally like it more heavily biased towards Hunan, Sichuan and X'ian but it's still very goo. At first glance, the prices for some dishes will seem very high (: by any standard :), i.e. Fish Maw and Bird's Nest Soup prices range from USD 70-100 per person, but those are delicacies that tend to be very expensive anywhere in the world. The first thing to remember is that the price includes all taxes although service isn't included, so top up 10% for that. When you look at other menu items, you'll find that they are very acceptably priced i.e. a bowl of soup for USD 8 that could serve 3-5 people; 12 beef dumplings for USD 6 etc.. Anything that is labelled "Regular", i.e. a regular portion, is intended for 3-4 people and I can vouch for that being the case because the two of us ate until we were nearly sick for about USD 70 and still took about 40% of the Peking Duck home. In fact, the bulk of that bill was the Peking Duck @ USD 40, and apart from that we had 2 glasses of red wine, a 500ml pot of Jasmine Tea, 12 Beef Dumplings, Sichuan Spicy Chicken and 6 pieces of Deep Fried Banana: all of this--excl. the duck--costed USD 30 including a 10% service. Granted, when you look at just the monetary amount, the price is high-ish for Tbilisi but then the overall value is very goo. There aren't many, maybe not even any, really authentic Chinese restaurants in town.

I highly recommend this restaurant. I enjoyed it.

Had a meeting and dinner with a group of people. We had ordered set Dinner not from a la carte menu.
Food was very good and tasty, various dishes from spicy to sweet and sour. Nice private rooms and good service. Very good choice for a different meal experience.
