Description: "Best Balkan cuisine in an unnamed neighborhood!" Banja Luka is a wonderful town of sunny Bosnia. For centuries inhabited by Croats, Serbs, Bosniaks, Jews and Muslims was an example of good neighborly relations and positive mutual influence of many cultures. It's a fabulous city, destroyed by the terrible earthquake in 1969 and the subsequent war. It is for us a symbol of the Balkans, a lively mix of cultures and traditions, we want you to pass it in a casual atmosphere with a pinch of salt. We offer you delicious, a little crazy, real Balkan cuisine. Banjaluka started in 2002 and spent 10 years in Mokotow district. After moving to the heart of the city some nightlife was added to the family-friendly attitude. The restaurant is famous for its diverse balkan cuisine, highest ingredient and dish quality and casual atmosphere. Fresh balkan menu was developed by Tadeusz Muller - Banjaluka is now a real Balkan food venue with flair for seafood and large portions of meat with the legendary 20cm Gurmanska Pljeskavica as a flag dish. The place stays open late (11PM weekdays and 12PM on weekends). During lunch and the weekend brunches Banjaluka serves fine as a centrally located balkan diner and quality time with your family an friends.

With former chef in previous location it used to be a very good spot, with nice portions and tasty food. Nowdays things are different. Taste is only a bit over the average and everything is overpriced. Dishes lack originality. Rude and busy service convicted us not to visit Banjaluka again.

I really enjoyed stay at Banjaluka recently. Food may look a little bit costy, but is definitely worth its price. Waiter Piotr was really amazing and kind, helping us or advising in case of any questions about meals! They were sorry about such small delays we did not even notice, that we were offered additional desserts (they were also amazing!)... More

Banjaluka offers good Balkan food as well as a friendly service, however Balkan music is missing. Note that the place can be a bit crowded on Friday or Saturday evening.

Old location with the old chef was much better now it is a bit cold without any love. Food is pricey a bit but tasty if you know what to choose. Just a sad way to end up ....

The service is generally very disappointing. Waiters and waitresses are not considerate, barely say hello and rarely pay attention at the client while taking the order. This observation is relevant whether the place is packed or not. I has to go there several times for lunch mainly because of a lock of choice. The food is uneven depending on the... More

The Balkan cuisine is very tasty and quite big portions at economical price. Loved the Balkan Raznjici and Cevapcici dishes. In drinks try the Rakiye sa medon shot. They have a nice collection of wines to choose from. Live music everyday. Staff are courteous and Service is good. Overall a great experience.

We ate here 'on spec' having picked it from Google maps. The food was the best we had in our few days in Warsaw. Portions were good without being too big to finish. This was my first experience of Balkan food and I was very impressed with the range of flavours. Neither of us spoke Polish but the friendly waitress... More

Really enjoyed my lunch here. The place itself is very comfy, which is also reflected in the service. The lamb chops were delicious, would go again!
