Tastes of Thailand
San Thai says much for the renaissance of Próżna… You don’t need to go that far back in time to remember when Próżna looked like it was going to come tumbling down: flanked by disintegrating tenements precariously propped up by wooden scaffolds, it was the street that time forgot.... Read more
Bangkok Soi

Bangkok Soi

Restaurants 3 April 2019 0

Without being privy to statistics, you’d hazard a guess this was the most blogged about restaurant of March 2019. Small and informal, the narrow choice makes it easy to sample everything within a couple of visits – and it’s likely you’ll return to do just that. Replicating the street... Read more

Ukim

Restaurants 20 July 2018 0

Though not as high profile as Warsaw’s other gastro streets, Chłodna’s gradual resurgence has been no less spectacular. But fine dining and fancy wine bars aside, it’s actually the more standard venues that make the area feel so complete. Take Ukim, a cheerful joint decorated with steel Tolix chairs... Read more

You don’t need to step too far back in time to remember when Próżna looked like it was going to come tumbling down: flanked by disintegrating tenements precariously propped up by wooden scaffolds, it was the street that time forgot. In many ways, its gentrification has been a little... Read more

San Thai

Restaurants 27 January 2018 0

Informal, airy surrounds; fair price points; and a menu that covers enough bases while never becoming overwhelming. Though open for just a few months, so far San Thai have found themselves commended for their fiery recipes and diverse range of dishes. A half-decent wine selection adds to the impression...

Silk & Spicy Francuska 49
Having achieved success on the left side of Warsaw, Silk & Spicy have crossed the Wisla to open a new venture on the fringe of Saka Kepa. Following precisely the same formula, anticipate a slick black / gold design and a menu that strives to represent Thai and Japanese... Read more

That’s progress for you: where once (a very long time ago), you’d have found Maharaja on the top floor of a decaying socialist block, today you’ll find it on the ground floor of one of Warsaw’s most prestigious residential projects. It’s shrunk in size considerably, and it looks more... Read more
Thaisty Stary Żoliborz
Following up on the roaring success of their Pl. Bankowy branch, the Thaisty team have expanded to cover Żoliborz – despite the shortened menu (for the time being, at least), the consequences have been entirely predictable with the venue booking out fast throughout the day. Rated by many as... Read more
Pełną Parą na Nowo
A good gauge of Pełną Parą’s swoon-worthy offerings is the Dim Sum Mix: find a duo of Chinese dumplings (pork/shitake & bamboo/shrimp) plus a spicy kimchi-style cucumber salad topped off with some fried wontons and spring rolls. Ideal for sharing, such is the quality you really believe that Warsaw... Read more

It’s not rare to find a venue that places equal value on food and drink, but it is rare to find one that gets them both right. In Fokim’s case that means a successful pan-Asian menu, and a cocktail selection that prides itself on old-school craftsmanship, class ingredients and... Read more
