Don't forget to invite me to the launch party!

Has anybody here tried that newish Indian restaurant near plac Zawiszy? I went there and the food is absolutely as it should be (unlike Tandoori palace) except for the poppadoms which were not so good. It seems a bit cheaper than the other places too. I noticed that the staff (kitchen too) were all Sikhs.

There was a fair range of food, with everything one would expect, and all authentic.

A really good restaurant!

The one next to the Millenium tower (blue and white skyscraper)? I haven't been myself but the two people I know who have been there are both bigtime curry fans and they both rate the place highly. Not quite as good as Namaste but a better choice if you're in that area (or want to sit down while you eat).

That's the one, between Millenium tower and my old office (giving identity away a bit).

There's also that lunchtime place behind Kino Femina. It's run by the Hari Krishna which means the cuisine is somewhat specific (no meat, fish, onions or garlic; which apparently are of Darkness and therefore Maya, Illusion!), but they do an interesting lunch for about 20pln and don't try to convert the customers.

There's a newish Indian restaurant in the shopping centre by Metro Stokłosy (left hand side, opposite the Chinese place) which looks intriguing. Functions as a bar as well, which is an interesting idea, but I haven't been in, not least because there's a Polish restaurant I really like just round the corner.

aah, Just came *back* after having a sumptuous "sarso wali machli" (mustard fish) and paranthas (kind of naan) from Namaste India. Couldn't feel any better :).

Just came after having that? I know it's good but I didn't know it was THAT good, hehehe. Sorry, u wrote this in a very funny way

Oh, I forgot to add jalfrezi. Chicken jalfrezi is great. My favourite when I started eating Indian food was Chicken Dupiaza. How does Pakistani food compare to Indian?

Whatever food you mentioned previously (mainly north indian) is more to less similar to Pakistani food. Kind of regional effect.
If you go down south in India or towards eastern side, the cusines/their preparation are a lot different. May be you can try some of them like sambhar dosa, idli, vada etc. to see if they suit your taste buds.

No real chance in Gliwice to eat them. There was an Indian restaurant here but it went under.

You mean Vega at Jana Pawla 36c? People say that its hard to find decent veggie food in Warsaw and they're right: it's nearly impossible to find Vega!

The place is not actually just for lunch, they stay open from 10am until 9pm (but admittedly the food does tend to run out before that time). Is a lunch menu there really 20zl now? Last time I was there (a couple of years ago) it was about 12zl. The same people apparently have another place at ul. Kazury 20 but that's in Ursynow so I haven't been there.
jonni 16 | 2,482

You can eat there for 12zl or thereabouts still. I always get a bit too much since I like the food. And it is indeed hard to find!

mmmmchicken kashmir

Chicken Kashmir, wow, I heard this name first time. They just seem to make any combination of name :).
BTW, a very popular dish from kashmir (a state in India) is rogun josh (lamb based)

Vega at Jana Pawla 36c

Is this complete address?, I wanna try this place.

Two things I miss from the UK, curry and decent draught guiness.
Have eaten in a good Indian restaurant in the Tri-city. But I live to far for take away.

Yes that is the full address. But the place is very hard to find. The best way to get there is to go to Kino Femina (on the corner of Jana Pawla and Solidarnosci), go to the car park next to Kino Femina and walk to the end of the car park, in the righthand corner are some steps (five or six steps), go up those and walk straight for about 30 metres, the building in front of you is Vega.

What exactly was her answer? Hard to believe that she sat there dumbfounded without saying a word, if infact you have an "Indian friend" and this is just not your own natural curosity peaking :D..

she was not exactly dumfounded, just could not come up with reasons why.

poland is a lot different to the UK, US and Australia. we have a lot of indians in australia, but the climate is hot and most speak english.

and yes, i do have an "indian friend" who i work with.

Yes, well aware of the fact that Poland is different, but indians (or south asians) are also in russia, romainia, germany and other places in stark contrast to their homeland.

Oh and while english is difinitely a major plus in any country we dont always prefer the climate to be hot, infact quite the opposite, run away from it at any given oppertunity!

Guys,
Any information about Indian restaurants in Gdansk/Gdynia?

Yes, am happy to see so many fans for Indian food...

My allure to come to Poland is because I had to come here on an assignment and I would be here until about June or July this year. And in Poland, I like the beers, vodka and people who are generally friendly.

hmmm vega is hari krishna? that is news to me. I eat there quite often and you can eat for 10zl and I havent seen any haris running around. And call centers are good jobs for Indians and they are good for the west as well

Dear Iman or chote as we say in the land of the Nawabs,
You will find everything you need to cook a decent biryiani, nahri,chakna,sambar and kebab in warsaw, krakow, katowice, lodz, gdansk or any part of poland. Mera bharat mahaan. Indians are there in every part of this great country. The general experience of life in Poland among desis here is one of fun, joy and contentment. You will find all the spices you need, fatafat, dabur, kothmir, hari mirch, parachut, adrak laisan a-plenty . All polish cities are full of Indian students, IT professionals, BPO work-horses and traders and merchants.

And regarding work, basic polish(spoken and read) is recommended if you are looking for a entry level job in any polish city. Most students here speak and understand basic English as English is a subject at everyone,s Matura (Intermediate) level here at school.

English teaching jobs are reserved mostly for native English speakers. professionals in IT ( specially programmers, SAP,Java) are in demand in here. those with an IT/ITES/BPO background stand a good chance of landing a job in Warsaw, Krakow, Wroclaw , Lodz etc.

P.S>>POLISH PEOPLE IN GENERAL ARE VERY HOSPITABLE AND YOU WILL FIND YOURSELF WELCOME IN EVERY POLISH TOWN/CITY. THIS IS A VERY BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY WITH BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE. IF YO U ARE LOOKING FOR A JOB, THE POLISH MARKET IS A LEVEL PLAYING FIELD. ONLY MERIT IS THE CRITERIA HERE.

So, if you have any more enquiries, please ask them here. I will be very glad to answer it for you.
Thanks and wishing you a great time in Poland

I WANA TO ASK SOMETHINK TO EVERYBODY COULD ANYBODY TELL ME....WHY

Nawab says,
Dear Preet, the reason most shops that sell asian groceries are called INDIAN SHOPS is because INDIA represents globally all things that represent the sub-continent ( India, pakistan, bangladesh,sri lanka ). These nations and their people are basically of Indian origin and as such even though they are now independent, their lifestyle is the same or a slight variation of the lifestyle and culture of mainland India. Thirdly, since Indians outnumber most of the other sub-continent nationalities in most western cities, shopkeepers name their shops as INDIAN to attract this huge community primarily.

(My eyes feast on Elizabeth Taylor as Cleopatra, My mouth feats on one global voice, My ears feast on Sare Jahaan se accha and My nose feasts on the nearest Indian grocery !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Hmm so I went to Namaste and I must say I was unimpressed. I lived in India off and on for the past 8 years. Nice people and atmosphere but the food was subpar unfortunately and I was a bit put off by the plastic forks and so forth. I would say the Vega at Kino Femina is far better quality and value. Just my two cents, no offense to the Namaste people. I met some Punjabis and had a nice chat. But of course it could just be taste. For me there was no taste and for my polish friend it was too spicy. At Vega you can get a full meal for the price of jeera rice at Namaste.
