Polish in Kensington & Hyde Park

Counting Roman Polanski among its diners, this popular South Kensington restaurant has been serving a heart-warming range of vodkas and wholesome Polish dishes for 60 years. You can usually find the oft-seen bigos (a ‘hunter’s stew’ of cabbage and pork), pierogi (dumplings) and an abundance of soups on the reasonably priced and regularly varying menu. The express lunch is excellent value at £10.
