Introduction - Mamuska Polish Restaurant

  • Mamuska Polish Kitchen and Bar creates food a Polish mother would be proud to serve. This massive, industrial venue born of steel, brick and concrete offers a different vibe to its previous home in Elephant and Castle, but the menu remains as reassuringly authentic and value-packed, as ever. With seating for 200 and a Platform bar area for after-dinner drinks, Mama looks forward to welcoming you home.
