After a long day my friend and I fancied something simple, but close to the hotel. Ordered the mix grill which was very good, service was quick and friendly although our Polish is minimal, the server was very good and explained any questions we had.

Balbinka is close to Radisson Blu so we went there for lunch. Service was kind of slow, food very average. There are better Turkish places in town.

For a nice stop with a Turkish standard meal try this small restaurant. The quality is better than others turkish restaurants, it has a fresh varied menu, so try it for lunch as sometimes during dinner it goes out of some types of food.

We ate here twice. The prices are very good, and the food was excellent. We had the rice plate with chicken - very nicely spiced, and the rice plate with lamb. They came with great cabbage sides. Very convenient to the Warsaw Central train station.

This is my go to Turkish restaurant. They have rotating daily specials plus the regular menu. The staff are friendly and the location is great as it's not too crowded but still close to centrum

Kebab restaurant 🍴 went in and asked did they do take aways "of course we do anything you want" said the young lady waitress. The chicken 🍗 kebab with chilli sauce looked as if it had been in a pannini maker crisp on the outside, but it was ok. The 🍟 fries were macdonald specials, maybe a bit tastier.

I suppose you really don't go to Poland for Turkish food do you ? Well, on day 1 of a visit to Poland I was staying at the Radisson Sobieski Hotel which is just down the road from this restaurant. As I usually do, I went for a walk after check-in to find some local place for dinner. There are... More
