Restaurants 4 December 2018 0

Average Indian restaurants have become pandemic, but at Smak Curry hopes are already high that their early high standards will be maintained. Looking good on all fronts, the modern aesthetic is balanced with a menu that places its value on authentic tastes and fresh ingredients. So far, reviews have... Read more
Review: Guru
Haggard old veteran that I am, there’s a few things I miss about the Warsaw of old. Rumors, for one. They used to spread like wildfire, and they’d reach their peak when the word turned to curry: at least, they did if you were the holder of a passport... Read more

You don’t have to look too far back to remember the times when the opening of a new Indian restaurant would be the talk of the town – at least, among the British community if no-one else. Now, it all feels a little like Groundhog Day: a new Indian... Read more

Guru

Taking the place of the lamentable BrewDog pub, Guru joins Warsaw’s expanding list of higher end Indian restaurants. Looking slick, modern and easy-on-the-eye, the thought invested in the interior is reflected by a menu that’s more pared down the most and a kitchen that makes a song and dance... Read more

Karma

Having switched postcodes at the start of 2018, Karma’s new Mokotów address has a fresh, contemporary edge with an interior that’s chic, classy and leagues ahead of many of Warsaw’s other Indian restaurants. The food is impressive alright, with a boisterously punchy madras among the highlights. South Indian specialties... Read more

Bombay Lounge

The latest Indian harvest has left Warsaw with a generous crop of sub-par restaurants. The Lounge isn’t one of these, and despite a vindaloo that’s best described as ‘meh’, there’s enough to this place to warrant a look – not least a butter chicken that’s been mooted by one... Read more

Tikka Masala

Solid, high standards lend Tikka Masala a strong foundation on which to build, though the sheer uniformity of the menu is a source of disappointment: there’s nothing here you won’t find in Warsaw’s million other curry stops. While the overall quality keeps business steady, you sense most customers prefer... Read more

Otto Pompieri A revelationary new find with NYC-style pizza and an interior that’s retro Little Italy. With mood and food in perfect alignment, it’s a welcome addition to Warsaw’s pizza sector. Koreanka A brilliantly engaging courtyard hidey-hole – yet though the kimchi is spot-on, the bulgogi limp and largely... Read more

Reviews 11 October 2017 0

Once bruised and isolated, Wola’s rapid transformation into an upcoming business hub has had several consequences: patches of wasteland have been reborn as sparkly corporate compounds, while derelict factories are in the process of being redeveloped as gated residences and upmarket condos. A natural side effect of the ensuing... Read more

The Indian Hut

Restaurants 29 September 2017 0

An appalling flashback to dismal times, The Indian Hut is a timely reminder that not all is well in Warsaw’s Indian sector. Forget the cheap, empty interior, the real problem here is the food: for the Insider that meant a vindaloo that looked and tasted like it had been... Read more
