My Reviews of the Top 10 Eastern European Restaurants

Moving on to the Best Eastern European food in 2022, you've come to the right place! I've traveled across the country and visited over 200 restaurants, so I know a thing or two about good eats. Here are my top 10 picks for the Best Eastern European Restaurants in the UK with not ONE but TWO Restaurants as NUMBER ONE!

1. Platzky Food, Manchester & Karczma, Birmingham

I think that “PLATZKY Restaurant” is one of those shows that’s SO good, managed by amazing chefs, food there is fresh - modern, well presented and absolutely packed with flavours. On other hand, we have "KARCZMA Restaurant" serving traditional Polish cuisine, this place will take you on journey to native Poland, with flavours and interiors!

2. Blue Barbakan, York

The Blue Barbakan is an independent restaurant based on Fossgate serving predominantly traditional Polish cuisine but with an extra multi European twist. They serve dishes strongly influenced by several different countries within Eastern Europe fused with others that have been taken from more of a Western European style. Everything, without exception, is made on the premises.

3. Ognisko, London

"Ognisko Restaurant" managed to stand the test of time. With lighthearted humor, action-packed storylines, and strong Polish characters, it's one of—if not my all-time—favorite restaurant in the UK!

4. Rosemary, London

Amazing taste of Hungary! Plenty of great starters including soups - perfect for cold months, really good selection of Hungarian and Slovakian wines, especially organic ones.

My favourite dish beef stew, slowly cooked in Hungarian wine and flavoured with paprika (you can not have Hungarian dinner without paprika!) Great interior, authentic place, tasty food and good wines.

5. Daquise, London

Established in 1947

Situated in the very heart of London’s South Kensington, the legendary Daquise has been serving delicious, traditional Polish cuisine for over sixty years. Since 1947 we have welcomed many esteemed guests and played a small part in the history of both London and Poland.

Great part of London’s multicultural culinary scene, once you will walk in to Dasquise, you will feel like back home, like movie scene from old Polish classics.

My favourite dish was : Herring Kashubian, level of brining was just perfect!

Daquise is perfect for your business lunches but also ideal for romantic date. Book now!

6. Percy, Edinburgh

Beautiful Polish-style restaurant serving tasty and authentic cuisine in stunning Edinburgh!

You must try Percy's classic cuisine cooked well, non intrussive service and well priced food and drink. My favourite Pork Chop, highly recommending Percy!

Worth detour even if you have to visit Scotland just for one meal

7. Autograf, London

Cozy space, brings back memories of Polish eatery! Amazing meals, great drinks and awesome interiors.

Come and enjoy tasty piece of Poland in London!

8. Albina, London

One of the FIRST Ukrainian Restaurants in LONDON! Authentic recipes in rustic style, great place for families but also highly recommended for events.

9. Miòd - Malina, London

Miòd Malina - Honey & Raspberry

Relaxed atmosphere, bright interiors with wooden accents makes this restaurant typical Polish style.

10. Age & Katie, Stoke - on - Trent
