Firstly, I am not Polish; but my partner and family are. 3/6 of our party non-Polish. Polish food generally doesn’t get much love, but when it’s done well it is as good as any other cuisine. This place has a knack at doing it properly...More

Go along kings Road and turn right onto Montague Street. It's quite a narrow street. If you miss it you get to London road and you can circle around back onto King's Road.
