Must Lammas: A welcome opportunity to experience Georgian food
I am a self-confessed gannet, and an adventurous one at that, so one of the great attractions of travel is to eat new and different things. So, the rare chance to try Georgian food was too good an opportunity to pass up!
The restaurant's decor is quite minimalist, verging on the spartan - I had been expecting something a bit more 'folksky' (more along the lines of Troika), so this came as a bit of a surprise. The service was good, but as we ate early before catching a mid evening flight, the restaurant was all but empty and it would therefore be unfair to comment on the atmosphere.
The food is excellent and well priced - to set your taste buds aquiver, have a look at the website below, if only for the delightful animated black sheep (the meaning of 'must lammas') and the very pleasant folk music backing track!
Favorite Dish: The absolute highlight of the meal was the hatshapuri - Georgian cheese pie with yoghurt sauce. The portion was huge, and having ordered it as a starter, I despaired of making my way through it (let alone having space for my main course). I need not have worried: it was light as a feather and so delicious that it disappeared down my appreciative gullet in a trice!
The ljulja kebab (an Aserbaijani mince dish) and the shashlik (grilled pork) were also excellent.
Must Lammas: Not the Black Sheep of the Family!
Must Lammas, or Black Sheep, is a stylish restaurant serving Georgian/Caucasian food situated on a small street off Viru. The restaurant is fronted by large windows behind which is an inviting high ceilinged room and intimate mezzanine area, the walls decorated with Turkish style carpets.
Hot and cold starters include Mutton Carpaccio, Georgian Bean Salad, a place of Caucasian Appetizers and Georgian Cheese Pie while main courses encompass meat, fish and vegetarian dishes as well as sizzling Shashlyk grilled meat and kebabs. The food is lovely, well prepared, well presented and delicious. That includes the complimentary bread which manages to be a very tempting combination of fluffy and chewy at the same time. We were also surprised that the drinks menu included a couple of beers from the Black Sheep Brewery in Masham a small market town in the Yorkshire Dales, not too far from where I was brought up.
Service was good - quiet, efficient and fast though not over-rushed with the same, excellent, waiter appearing to cover the whole of the mezzanine area – and the atmosphere relaxing so that we felt able to happily dwell over our food and drink.
As for cost this was very reasonable, three courses, water and a beer each totalled 786 EEK (including tip) – approx. £37.40. Recommended
Favorite Dish: We had
Georgian Cheese Pie with Yoghurt Sauce – an oozing of cheese in flaky pastry, wonderfully moorish
Caucasian Appetizers – bean salad, stiffed vine leaves, bulgur wheat, lamb, fish - a delicious mix of flavours, enhanced by the herbs/spices such as dill and coriander
Trout with Plums, Raises and Estragon with rice – very light, the sweetness of the fruit complimenting the delicate flavour of the fish
Chicken Georgian Style with rice – nice and spicy with chillies, tomatoes, onion and herbs
Georgian Walnut Cake – lovely blend of walnuts and honey, sweet but not overly so
Lemon Syllabub – soft creamy and delicious

Must Lammas: Caucasian pleasure
Must Lammas is centrally located cosy restaurant with an excellent service.
This restaurant is proud of saying that they don't serve traditional beefsteaks with French fries.
So in this restaurant you will not meet the group of white-van-men from whatever U.K industrial city celebrating one poor guy's stag night -his last nights of freedom from miserable life to a worse. No hell, the noisy and stinky EasyJet shipped baldies with classy self-made footsie shirts are not here, those you will meet in MacDo few hundreds meters away.
Excellent value for the money, you seldom meet staff so polite in Tallin. Serving fluently in English.
Favorite Dish: For a starter a nice selection of Caucasian specialities are available. Main dishes of lamb and chicken were brilliant and for a dessert the cherry pure was jus next to the nirvana. Wine selection is good and international, so no worry that good dishes are wasted with e.g. the notorius Georgian petrolium.

Must Lammas: Good but Overpriced
On the recommendation of other VT websites I tried this place out.
During the weekends you need to make reservations. By the time we arrived there at 6:30pm on Saturday they were turning away people without reservations.
The restaurant is nice and clean and the service was very good (for Estonia).
The food was very good, but too basic to justify the small portions, too expensive by Estonian restaurant standards, and focuses too much on presentation.
If you live in Tallinn, know the buss system well, or are willing to take a taxi, Pirosmani serves the same type of food(Georgian) that is just as good, if not better, gives you more of it, and is less expensive.
