We enjoyed a fathers day lunch in an incredible atmosphere. The food was incredible and the service second to none!! The curry bunny was incredible and the selection of wine is really fantastic! You will definitely find something for your taste!! We will be back!!

We had lunch at Hoi Polloi with friends and was pleasantly surprised by the level of service and the quality of food. We sat inside which has a wonderful atmosphere created by a virtual smorgasbord of decor items - but it all goes together amazingly.

This restaurant has never been a let-down. Lots of memorabilia out of the past and immaculately clean. The service is a little slow but the food tasty. They have an extensive wine list. Adviced to make a booking on weekends.

5 stars for the food, 5 stars for the service and 5 stars for the gin. Hoi Polloi was an amazing experience. I recommend it to anyone who visit Parys or even just when you are passing through.

We have been at this restaurant 3 x (dinner/drinks/lunch). It looks fantastic, really special (especially inside) and has professional staff! Food is more than OK and prices are fair. If you are in Parys this restaurant is a must!

We had breakfast at Hoi Polloi - it was delicious and was served elegantly. We sat upstairs and the atmosphere/decor was quaint, charming and made it feel like we were seated at a small cafe somewhere in France. The service was friendly and efficient. When...More

This is a quirky restaurant. The character is in the extravangant decor, huge glasses, unusual names for the dishes on the menu and artistically presented food. The stairs are ridiculously steep, but the embience made it worth it. We had such a fun evening, with...More
