“depending what you want to eat there”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

It is a chain of restaurants, like Friday's. All in all, the place is very popular among the locals. Hard to find a table there. The staff is friendly and service-minded. The menu is picturesque and tempting. It is not expensive to eat there at all. I took pasta with some sauce, ruccola and pickles. It was delicious!! My husband took a steak (it is a steak house after all). He was very much disappointed by the steak. The meat was hard and too roasted although he asked for medium rare. His comment was that the meat was from some old cow. Well, at least I was happy with my meal ;)

“Typical 'branded' fare served efficiently and with a smile”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

You can find this chain of restaurants all over Poland and I saw a number of them in Warsaw. They are similar to TGIF Fridays etc and they are good at what they do. If you fancy a steak with your mates of an evening - this is the place! The waiter who served me did so with a smile and seemed happy in her work. The steak are on the small side but are quite tasty and the sides are fresh and plentiful. Good price too!

“Decent bar food”
Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

Sphinx isn't something special but it serves decent food in big portions. So if you are hungry and looking for something above junk or fast food, go for it! Prices are reasonable (around 10 USD for main dish), ambient is nice, service is fast and food is good and diverse (Middle Eastern, Central European, American).

“Sphinx Aleje Jerozolimskie, Warsaw, Poland”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

What a very tasteful food in Sphinx restaurant in WArszawa ?
It is very delicious food and mixed between eastern and western.
Everywhere you can find it around Poland, in Warszawa, Krakow, Lodz and many more cities.
I feel great when i am staying there especially in Lodz city it is very fantastic place collecting all color of people, different emotion, different mode, It's really wonderful.
Very helpful and quick staff over there.
If you go to Poland, Warszawa .. please try to go there and tell me what's your opinion and what's your feelings over there ?

“Good chain”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

We ate twice in 2 different branches, the food was great and the staff helpful, but not for the first time in Warsaw our bill was changed to show the service as local tax, we had just arrived and did not realise this con, leaving a tip as well as unwitingly paying service as well. On our second visit my credit card payment was converted to UK sterling, this is another con as you get awlful exchange rates, when I asked for it to be changed was told it was not possible, I did not make a fuss as the amount was not enough to be a problem. But resturants of Warsaw please take note, we are not stupid and will vote with our feet by avoiding resturants that try these things on, its a shame as the meals were great.
