Not like it used to be with authentic Polish foods. Just 6 very nice but overpriced main courses


I have been to this restaurant in London (twice) and Warsaw (4 times) and I have loved it every visit. The Warsaw food is 5 star while the London food is 4+ star. The history of the London location and the cold war and Russian spies is fun also. What I liked best, The stake tartare is the best I have ever had, fabulous, excellent. The roasted duck is succulent and flavorful, my favorite main course The pickled herring is good The rack of ribs excellent When ever I am in London or Warsaw I will stop by the friendly White Kitchen


I actually liked the simple, yet elegant interior. The food, on the other hand, hard to say, as there is NO VEGETARIAN dishes, not even one, which I found outrageous. Too pricey too...


Absolutely best Polish food you can get. Amazing service, very tentative, chatty, willing to go extra mile for you to have a great time. However, be prepared. This is not restaurant like any other in London. Be open-minded, and you will be amazed


Limited menu, three desserts to choose from, very short wine list. Decor nondescript, service average once you manage to get the staff attention. Food delivered to the table by endless line of waiters with hot pots in their hands does not add to the overall experience. I ordered 'marinated beetroot' out of curiosity, more fool me. For £7 what I got was one betroot chopped into four pieces, dressed with a teaspoon of extremely mild horseraddish sauce. Completely tasteless. Mains were ok, but nothing to write home about. All in all, it was ok-ish though somewhat overpriced.

I have now been three times in the last month and passing the word around. The food is excellent, the serving staff are professional. It is not overpriced in my opinion and Ted the Matre D is charming and makes you feel really welcome, a real contrabution to the eating experience.


What an experienceeee!!! I am Polish and need to admit, that food served in this restaurant brings memories of my childhood. Not only excellent and old fashioned Warsaw' style interior deserves highest marks, but high quality FOOD as well. I was expecting much and was well pleased and proud as Daquise proved to be my favourite Polish restaurant in London. Will be back for sure :)
