It’s been a great month to gallivant around the bars and restaurants of Warsaw, with several highs and lows recorded in our ongoing quest to smash the scales and live life to the max… Firstly, and nothing says June more than a big glass of Pimms. A growing number... Read more

Warsaw’s vegan revolution continues to take the city’s foodies down unexpected paths: but the biggest surprise of the lot, that’s just got to be Keboom.

Restaurants 1 January 2018 0

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.
