We ate here twice during our visit to London. Great food, nice folks. Pierogi were amazing. Found the atmosphere a little loud but British Football (soccer) was on the TV, so that may have contributed.

OK so the way you order food is quite similar with Nandos except here nobody tells you you have to order your own food. For someone that is there for the first time that can be confusing Food was good a bit dry and too well fried but still OK. I got sour cream as well and maybe they should... More

Being Polish myself I used to spend quite lots of time there while living in SE. Feels like home. Great food, staff lovely, owner Ian very chatty man! Would recommend to anyone willing to try Polish cuisine and anyone looking for delicious and cheap meal.

We hosted around 50 people for an after christening luncheon on Sunday 20th November. The staff were amazing!! They had us all organised onto 3 tables, nothing we asked for was a problem and the food was absolutely amazing, everyone was catered for. I literally cannot recommend this restaurant enough! Communication, organisation, preparation, service and value for money for the... More

Hopped on the 176 bus near Charing Cross towards Pence. 12 minutes later was sitting at Mamuskas new lovely airy place across from the old Elephant Castle shopping centre. Started with Rosol, a traditional chicken soup. Chock full of meat, carrots and skinny noodles.... More

I love the tasty polish traditional meals here, there is no need to add anything else to the meals. For the price of £3.50 you can get soup which fills up your stomach with tasty goodness. There is such a range of meals for everybody, to suit their taste. You can even get pierogi (5) for a starter to try... More

Ate here on four occasions during our trip to London. Twice we went for dinner and twice for breakfast. Tried something of everything on the menu and were not disappointed with anything. The full English breakfast was the best we had during our trip and the price was very reasonable. My son is peanut and nut allergic and the manager... More

There are lots of Caribean and Spanish cafes in nearby Palace mall, but this Polish restaurant is not only totally worth the short walk, but is great value for money. We had three Polish dishes - you have to try the beef pierogi - and they were all amazing. The cost was low to medium, particularly for London. Free water,... More

Been meaning to try this for a while and was not disappointed. Had the sausage and sauerkraut soup with a big chunk of fresh crunchy bread and the Pork Gulasz (lunch menu smaller portion £5....but still loads of it). Very nice polish draft beer. Looking forward to returning as there are all sorts of delights on the menu. Excellent and... More

We are excited to bring a modern ‘bar mleczny’ experience to London! Come visit us at the Elephant & Castle Shopping Centre, where you will enjoy authentic Polish meals prepared with fresh Polish ingredients, at a price you can afford every day.
