There are so many Indian restaurants mushrooming here in Warsaw and in Poland. Is there a reason?? Is Indian meals getting popular in Poland? Are the new restaurant any good or just so so.

So which is the best of the Indian restaurants??

There's a very good one about half way down ul. Francuska at Saska Kepa. Don't know the name. There's also a fantastic one behind the Novatel in the centre. Again the name escapes me.

Arti (they also have one on Jerozolimskie).

Namaste club. The Namaste in the old town is far better.

The best is either Namaste old town or Arti on Wilcza.

I think the best is still the Tandoor Palace at Marszalkowska/Armii Ludowej

I think that you are a wind-up merchant. Try harder next time.

In Warsaw I always go to Ganesh on Wilcza - service can be slow but food is great and a long menu plus the food is not too greasy there. Up until I discovered Ganesh I was a Namaste regular and still get the odd takeaway from there.

Lighten up dude.

I have not visited Ganesh on Wilcza but I have tried the branch at KEN. There is also a new one on Nowy Swiat . Anyone been there??

Arti on Wilcza.

Duh! Of course I actually meant Ganesh on Wilcza.

Up until I discovered Ganesh I was a Namaste regular and still get the odd takeaway from there.

You been to Namaste in the Old Town? It is noticeably better than the original Namaste. I'd say it may well be the best in Warsaw, especially given Ganesh's inability to provide halfway acceptable service or to be consistent with their food.

I'm a regular at Anna Purna on Twarda/Zelazna, seems to be getting better and better.

The odds that anybody says anything like "the best is still the Tandoor Palace" because they genuinely believe it are very very very low.

The one on KEN is nothing like the one on Wilcza. There's only one curry house on Nowy Swiat, Buddha, it is inoffensive but there are far better curries to be had in Warsaw.

The one on KEN

Speaking of this KEN street - does it mean anything? I do some very part time work for a school based there, and it's always amusing when I write al. KEN on the address...

Not been to the old town namaste - mainly because I am too lazy. I always stay in Polonia Palace in Warsaw so Ganesh is just round the corner. Will try Annapurna sometime though as an Indian friend also recommended it.

Bit of a forgotten place but India Curry in Zurawia is not bad, but its a bit more expensive and more like "British Indian" than the others. I have a mate who always wants to meet there so have been 4 or 5 times over the years.

In that case try Kathmandu on Wspolna (close to corner with Emilii Plater). Much closer than Namaste, closer even than Ganesh.

Also try Hat-trick on Poznanska, literally next door to Polonia. Acceptable beers and superb beer plus decent service.

I tried an Indian restaurant in Krakow (Kazimierz). It was hopeless, nothing like "real" curry.

I think it was Rudyard Kipling who said, A good curry should burn three times: once in the mouth, once on the way down and once more on exit... :D

Smacznego :D

Yes, I understand why you didn't like it: moors are noted for their dislike of spicy food and you are a moor.

Me too , on my visits to Poland in different cities. Curry did not taste good at many places. The reason is its being run by Pakistani or Nepali or Bangladeshi who find it convenient to open a shop in the name of indian and cheat us. We have such problems in Germany too.

Uh, the vast majority of UK curry houses are run by Bangladeshis.

Looks like you've forgotten that curry isn't even originally Indian: the word 'curry' comes to us from Tamil.

Looks like you don't realize that Tamils are Indians.

Tamls have their own language, which is spoken in Singapore and Sri Lanka - the word Kari is a Tamil word, not an Indian one.

Anway, as already stated Bagladeshi restaurants are the best, not Indian or Pakistani.

Yes Tamils have their own language, and it is spoken outside of India, but mostly inside of India, in Tamilnadu, which is in the South of India. Tamil is an Indian laguage. It seems that you, and this forum's unfortunate Harry, are mistakenly assuming that the Northern Indian lingua franca called Hindi is "Indian" while Tamil is not. Both Hindi and Tamil are Indian languages. The latter is not an Indo-European language, but it is Indian nonetheless.

How surprising to see DE yet again reveal himself to be nothing like as clever as he likes to pretend he is!

No, you have revealed yourself, Harry, to be an ignorant fool but it surprises no one.

Des E, You also make mistakes yourself, need I remind you about the band you tried to convince us was from Sweden, even when I assured they are from the USA.
