    I never write reviews, but this was worth it. I often find tastecard's selection of restaurants to be a little uninspiring, but this little gem in Kensington was perfect for a pre-prom summer dinner. The terrace is fab for al fresco, the food v interesting (I had smoked eek starter and goose leg main), the wine was all very interesting (we had Macedonian white) and the service could not have been better. Thanks v much, ill be back for sure. "

    I wanted to show my friends some Polish cuisine and was delighted when I found Polish restaurant that take tastecard. Restaurant is located in a very nice area, looks great inside and has a charming garden. We decided to sit outside, it was more privet because of a bit chill September evening. my friends loved food (and I must say it's hard to impress them and also meet their expectations - one is vegetarian, other don't eat pork). the staff answer all our awkward question and was very helpful. Honestly I couldn't ask for more. And tastecard discount was a great bonus! "

    Fantastic food which opened our eyes to the delights of polish cuisine. A few very minor areas for improvement to help the diner unfamiliar with how best to tackle the menu with it's array of small and larger dishes would be perfection. However all one had do to was ask and help was at hand the perfection would come in not having to ask. Now I've cracked it I will return I'm sure. "

    I took my polish girlfriend here on a Wednesday night.
    Right from the beginning everyone was helpful.
    The interior was great and the lighting just right and about half full.
    Now I am not a vodka drinker but on being informed by my GF that it was a must I thought I would give it a try ( and I must say that being kept in the freezer makes all the difference) it was lovely!

    I ordered the pork crackling for a starter along with a mushroom and chestnut dumpling. WOW is all I can say, the cracking was warm and crunchy and soft at the same tame. Amazing!

    The mains were huge and tasty and I was informed by the GF that it was all very authentic.

    Even without the taste card we will be going back!

    This is a place you must try! "

    Only had time for a main course and wine before the theater but the food was really good. Good wine list too. I will definitely be going back for a longer meal and bound to order the Golabki again.

    Only bug I have is when paying with tastecard there's the typical frown and question if I booked with that, which sadly takes the shine off the experience. It's easy for them to check without a fuss and what's the difference anyway, are there two levels of service? If they don't embrace taste card - don't run the offer. "

    A hidden jewel of a restaurant just a few minutes from the hurly burly of South Kensington's museums, which I had forgotten was there, but Tastecard reminded me. It's been around since the 2nd World War, but the recent update has made the most of the surroundings and the Polish traditions.

    This is hearty Polish food with a modern twist. My quail with pomegranate was a delicious and perfectly-sized starter. The steak tartar came as it should, not pre-mixed, and the delicious racuchy - apple pancakes - were hot out of the frying pan. All that with a pretty view from the terrace, a good selection of wodkas and the polite and attentive staff made for a lovely evening.

    The prices do reflect the location, however having a Tastecard takes the sting out of the tail and the place is worth it. I will definitely making another visit and bringing along more friends. "
