Summary

This Polish veteran by South Ken tube station clocks up its 70th anniversary next year, and its overall appeal somehow exceeds the sum of its parts: “it’s like meeting a friend from the distant past and discovering there’s still something special”.

Summary

Advocates of this South Ken survivor (est 1947) say it “deserves better ratings” for its “semi-Polish” fodder (more contemporary nowadays than in times past); it’s sometimes accused, though, of “tired” results.

"A party of six of us entered without a reservation at around 5.15pm. We were quickly accommodated on a nice round table and given excellent service throughout. The choice of food was extensive and was of a very good quality and enjoyed by all. A nice touch was that the chef came from the kitchen and assisted with service. The bill when it came was less than £150. A bargain. We noted that the premises were undergoing re-decoration. Generally a very homely atmosphere. Well worth the visit."
