September 2017 – very sad to spot the closure, presumably due to retirement, of this splendid place which has fond memories.
Harden's survey result

The “delightful” and “gloriously eccentric” Polish hospitality at this family-run Shepherd’s Bush veteran “never lets you down”. With its “wide range of flavoured vodkas” and “old-fashioned décor”, it’s perfect for a “cheap ’n’ cheerful” get-together.
“Old-fashioned, in the nicest possible way” – a “warm and cosy” spot, right by Shepherd’s Bush Green, that’s a top budget choice thanks to its super-friendly service, affordable Polish fodder, and wide range of flavoured vodkas.
“A great find”; this “eccentric” Polish operation offers “extraordinary value”; the fare is “home-cooked”, and comes in “huge portions”, but it’s the “cute” ’50s decor and superb service from the owner – not to mention “loads of flavoured vodkas” – that really set it apart.
“Like sitting in someone’s home, and that’s how you are treated” – the food may be “heavy”, but the vodka is cheap, at this “very cheerful” Polish stalwart, right on Shepherd’s Bush Green, which offers an “outstanding-value” package overall.
