Skamiejka has undergone some very positive changes - same address, same spirit, but now it's twice bigger! The owner, Mrs Tamara, will always make you feel very welcome, doesn't matter if you are a regular or just a walk-in looking for a cozy place to have a lunch or dinner. Go for solianka, Ukrainian borscht, pielmieni, warieniki, be careful with using too much home-made mustard (hot like Lucifer's breath in the morning, don't ask me how do I know it) and be charmed with the atmosphere of a small-town Russian restaurant. There is no other place like this in Warsaw and I keep coming back, despite living 1500 km away.

A lovely little place. Looks a bit old at first glance but the atmosphere makes up for it. The menu is simple and the food great. Ran by a Russian family, this place is a must for dumpling lovers.

If you're searching for a small, family run place to eat, that's a good choice. They are making their dumplings on site, and serve them as fresh as they can be. I had wareniki and pielmieni, both great choice! The only downside is that there is extremely limited sitting space, so not easy to get a table... Very friendly staff, speak fluent Russian and Polish & English

If you are looking for something different, it is a place for you! No fancy stuff. Simple and hearty food.
This quirky little place has a lot of charm and unique character.

On menu you will see only a couple of dishes to choose from, but they are all great. I would definitely recommend Soljanka soup (with olives and capers) and Pieremienie (dumplings with meat). If you can handle heat, get some of their famous mustard.

The owner, Mrs Tamara is chatty and friendly. Together with Mr Jerzy, she prepares all the dishes.
Average prices.

Absolutely loved it and will be going back there tomorrow :)

I plannedo to go there for a long time. I am a fan of eastern cuisine.

I got 'solanka' and dumplings with potatoes - 'wareniki'

The soup was ok, dumplings nothing special.

Unfortunately we and other people in the restaurant needed to wait long time for food- maybe it was temporary.

Waiter kept forgetting to give us fork or spoon so people did self service.

If someone wants to try russian food go ahead but it would be overpriced.
