Warszawa Wschodnia literally means Warsaw East and is a reference to the nearby train station and stresses its location on the eastern side of the river. It’s located in one of the post factory buildings in the Soho Factory complex.
The restaurant’s main room has a traditional arrangement with tables. However, I prefer to sit in the other room which consists of a large counter encircling the restaurant kitchen. That way you can watch the cooks prepare your (and others’) delicious food. The cuisine on offer is mostly foods inspired by traditional Polish cooking with a modern touch. Some French classics are available as well. Therefore, it’s a perfect place to try some high quality Polish food after you’ve already gotten stuffed with too many pierogis.
If you’re on a budget or just happen to be in the area during the day on a week day, I can definitely recommend lunch at this restaurant, which is very affordable and is a set menu of a soup, main and a dessert. But, if you get hungry in the middle of the night and fancy some real food instead of a kebab, bear in mind that this restaurant is open 24/7.
