Good variation of flavours

Very meaty classic options so if you like that this is the place! Great atmosphere and friendly staff.

Good stuff

Simple menu, but high quality. Including some desserts that are hard to find vegan, like jagodzianki (blubbery rolls).

Pros: Fully vegan, Vegan desserts

Simple but delicious!

Very good polish oriented kitchen with simple ingredients but it tasted very delicious! The seitan steaks are very recommendable! Both the indoor and outdoor area are great and the staff is very friendly!

Auch mein nicht veganer Freund war begeistert!

Wir waren hier bei unserem Tagestrip. Nettes Lokal, mit einigen Plätzen tun draußen sitzen. Kleine Karte, aber alles was wir hatten war mega lecker! Immer wieder! Preis/Leistung unschlagbar in unseren Augen.

delicious vegan versions of polish meals

the menu changes seasonally but the high quality of the food remains. one of the best places in warsaw to try a vegan “schabowy” cutlet with potatoes and seasonal veggies.

So big, so tasty

The portions are sooo big and very tasty. Excellent homemade food. We leave the restaurant full. The stuff were very friendly and understood Russian. This is a very popular place, so there were a lot of people during our visit. You should make an order and only then you can sit by the table

Pros: Big portions

Great Polish food

They serve delicious Polish classic food. If only staff were more friendly to customers... I remove one star for the lack of hospitality.

Pros: Delicious Polish classics

Cons: Unfriendly staff, Place not very cosy

I had schnitzel with mash potatoes and salad unfortunately the salad was just like the one on one of the photos - sour cucumbers and tomatoes, thats good and winter I was expecting lovely polish style veg salad . My friend (not veggie and not polish) also didnt like the salad and said schnitzel was very greasy , I liked it . small choice of overpriced lager.

Very nice and super quick !

The vegan tartar is out of this world, and the vegan cutlet is super good as well. But most of all, the food was served in like 3 minutes !

So good and so cheap!

I love Poland for its cheap prices and its huge portions! The cutlet was amazing, the side were really good too. I enjoyed the place, but it was a bit hard to find a table to get free.

Anyway, I love the fact that they sell typical polish food but made vegan! I like to try different cultures foods, but since I’m vegan this is not always possible... thanks for existing!

Pros: Try the typical vegan polish food, Really good, Cheap!

Cons: Waiting line

Nice little spot for lunch

Home-style polish cuisine in a very casual establishment with counter service. Food is really tasty and changes every week (except their classics such as schabowy), so you can keep coming to taste something new. Indoors and outdoors seating areas. Overall great spot, the only thing I would improve is the service - I'm not saying they're rude, but they could be a bit more helpful and it wouldn't hurt to see a smile from time to time :)

Pros: central location, good value for money, variable menu

Cons: limited menu options, service can be quite cold

Had really high hopes for this place but wasn’t blown away. Was eager to try the local cuisine but thought the menu was really limited. Although the food was nice we left still feeling hungry. It’s completely self service too which I wasn’t a fan of. Wouldn’t come back again but would still recommend trying it. English menu available!

Pros: All vegan!, English menu

Cons: Self service, Limited menu
