First Review by ElisaVMae

you can eat better in Warsaw - Edit

I do not normally write negative reviews, but my visit there totally deserved it. The food was not cheap but it the portion was small and had very little taste. The staff was acting as if customers were a burden for them (I am not the kind of person that expects servility, but would like to get my food without feeling like an enemy). To sum it up, there are plenty places in Warsaw that I would recommend, and this is not one of them.

Pros: it's vegan

Cons: pricey, not tasty, staff not being nice at all

טעים אווירה נעימה - Edit

מסעדה קטנה עם אווירה נעימה . שרות טוב יש תפריט באנגלית. היה מאוד טעים. בעיה יחידה קצת רטיבות בקירות. כדאי לאכול בה.

Cons: סביר

Weird - Edit

Weird dinner, apparently the supplier didn't deliver any food to them the day we went and so they seemed to be out of a lot of things on the menu. Half of my dinner plate was filled with thickly sliced raw leeks trying to,pass as a "salad" . I also had the smallest glass of wine I've ever been served and when I ordered a second glass, I'm guessing I got the end of the bottle and they either didn't have any more or didn't want to open a new one. The second glass was even smaller! Barely a sip, possibly 1 oz. of liquid.....they still charged full price for it though. They also closed much earlier than the hours listed on here, be warned.

Identity crisis - Edit

The Bal Bar has gone through a lot of metamorphosis some time ago. The pub with vegan food has become a real restaurant that still has a great identity problems. Different seating height causes unequal comfort in terms of food consumption. The menu is too varied. Reaching for three types of cuisine from different parts of the world usually ends with average quality and Bal Bar is no exception from this rule. A couple of the dishes I tried did not taste bad, but it was just fine. Portions did not allow to be sown. Service was neutral. Nevertheless, I will return to try other dishes, because there seems to be hidden potential here. It is also worth noting that the place is located in a wonderful location, on Ząbkowska Street.

Pros: Food is OK.

Cons: Not really comfortable., Small portions.

Within reach of the Haze of Absurdity - Edit

This place is right over the road from probably my favourite bar in Warsaw, W Oparach Absurdu on the hip Ul. Ząbkowska in Praga. Not many tourists wander over to this side of the river and it's probably best to keep it that way I think. This is a cool Medi-Asio-Polski type place (just made that word up) serving delicious curries, pasta dishes and risottos. The Thai soup is truly exceptional, and at 19 PLN very reasonably priced. In my opinion, and being more of a night person, BalBar is best experienced much later in the day when Ząbkowska comes to life and you can appreciate the red themed interior with a cocktail perhaps.

Pros: Fantastic location, Great food, Selection of drinks

Pretty sweet deal - even without dessert :) - Edit

Balbar has everything you are looking for: tasty and varied choice of main courses, several starters and snacks, salads, sandwiches and pizzas, all healthy and delicious. They also have a vast drink choice including smoothies, juices and amazing (and strong) cocktails, cool environment, friendly staff.. the only thing missing was a dessert to tidy everything up :) Very recommended!

Very tasty, well-prepared food in hipster styleeee - Edit

I had a curry and a smoothie. The food was delicious and very well presented with a nice side salad which was unexpected. The place is very hipster, nice groovy tunes and an alcohol bar. Staff spoke great english and were very welcoming. Basically one of the best vegan places in Warsaw

Pros: tasty well presented food, nice music, cool place

Cons: bit small, any heavy drinkers would ruin the vibe as is small

Awesome place, food and people! - Edit

Ambiance is great, staff is very nice. They speak English very well and an English menu is available. The Thai Soup is honestly the best vegan Thai soup I've ever had. The Red Curry with tofu (Indian style) was also very good! I highly recommend eating here. They also have a full bar and serve specialty coffee drinks and tea.
