* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“A real surprise” near The Cut – this well-established fixture (which opened in 2001) has a relatively “humble entrance”, which opens onto a “great space”: an intriguingly converted Georgian factory, with a fun bar, and an unexpectedly large, “light-filled” dining room. The cuisine is enjoyably unusual too: “modern Polish – not the usual heavy, East European dishes”, but “gutsy” and “always imaginative, with new and traditional choices”. Go easy on the vodka though: over 60 varieties, all served straight from the deep freeze in frozen glasses.

It’s “always fun” to pay a visit to this “interesting” venue – a converted Georgian factory near The Cut, which provides a “buzzy” (“very noisy when full”) if slightly “cavernous” backdrop to a meal. On the menu, “hearty, reasonably authentic Mittel-European food” but it’s “the amazing list of vodkas” that really gets the party started…

“Lovely, gutsy Polish home cooking” washed down with lashings of homemade vodka helps induce good vibes at this “friendly” fixture in an “airy” Georgian factory-conversion near the Cut. “It’s good to see east European food being given the gourmet treatment”, and the bar “is a good pit stop for drinks” too.
