Heating wasn't working in the whole restaurant and guests were sitting wearing their coats. Ordered medium rare steak that came blue so had to send it back to be cooked more. When it came back chips were cold and it took so long that rest of our table finishes eating by then so I was eating on my own. Cousin... More

We are sphinx fans, we love it, but this one is just lame, bad food, terrible table accomodation, under construction while people is eating, you get it.

We ordered Onion soup and a pork dish. Actually, the grilled pork was pretty good. Our table was close the stairs to the 2nd floor. One of their staffs swept the dust with a broom on the steps toward us while we were still having our coffee after meal. I complained to the waiter who served our table. He just... More

We usually visit Sphinx when in Torun for the Speedway - the food is reasonably priced and there is a great selection to choose from. The service is usually quick and the location is nearby to when we stay - Apartamenty Torun which is also within the city centre. We usually have a steak which is good quality and it... More

We had been travelling all day and stopped in Torun for a night. We went to Sphinx to get some food and a few drinks. It was a busy Sunday and so we weren't expecting speedy or at all attentive care. The drinks came and they were a bit warm but we aren't too fussy. An hour after waiting for... More

Admittedly we went on a Saturday so it as probably their busiest day. But we had to wait well over an hour for our food and when it was served; it was served stone cold. I'd recommend you try to find a different restaurant.

This restaurant is located in the very center of Toruń, just opposite the statue of Copernicus and opposite the biggest museum in this town. I do not go there too often. Simply it is a bit too expensive for an everyday lunch or dinner. The other thing that personally I cannot accept is the amount of food. It is really... More

Sphinx is a long lasting fast food chain of restaurants in Poland. They pride themselves on their steaks and meat dishes and have an all-male staff. However, the overall experience is pretty rubbish and the food is of a poor quality. If you want a good steak head to either Pikado or Luizjana. Avoid this feeble attempt!
