The attractive Wolnica Square has a wealth of untapped potential, but it looks like Horai restaurant is finally leading the way in rejuvenating this neglected corner of Kazimierz. Horai will be dishing up gastronomic delights from three different culinary galaxies - Thailand, China and Japan, the latter being Sushi. Thai options include Chicken satay and a number of curries, both vegetarian and meaty, whilst Cantonese dishes represent the country of Confucius. Catering is available as is a takeaway service.

Thai, Japanese and Cantonese cuisine make up Horai's impressive three-pronged menu that will have your mouth watering long before your food arrives. Dishes like fried ginger chicken, Thai green curry and peppercorn beef all come with the Slinky seal of approval, whilst a range of tasty beers such as Singha, Tsing Tao and Asahi will have your fondly recollecting your travelling days in the Orient. On the downside the waitress during my last meal made me feel about as welcome as a paedophile at a kid's pool party. Smile love, it's not rocket science.
We stepped in late on a weekday afternoon and perused a rather extensive menu. They appear to offer Japanese and Thai dishes, along with some Cantonese grill dishes. There are a lot of Sushi offerings but many have mayonnaise or cream which I absolutely detest in a sushi. We settled on two soups for starters - miso and Tom Ka Gai. The miso soup lacked subtlety while the Tom Ka Gai was an odd cross between yellow curry and a soup. It was also sweetish in taste - very disappointing. The sushi we ordered were average fare - not bad but nothing to rave about. We will not be going here again. On the plus side, we forgot out camera there, and they returned it the next afternoon when we came looking.
Porazka jakich malo. Nie dosc, ze jedzenie kiepskie, obsluga anemiczna to jeszcze zostalismy oszukani. Znajomy zamowil Soft Shell Crab - a dostal caly talerz smazonych warzyw w ciescie tempura i kilka malutkich kawaleczkow kraba!Calosc za 43zl - taka cena za krazki cebulowe, pieczarki, prapryke i baklazan- lekka przesada. Ja jadlam najgorsze noodle w moim zyciu - niby makaron ryzowy a smakowal jak zwykly, do tego rozgotowany i suchy- zapomnieli chyba o sosie. Poza tym na stronie internetowej restauracji jest informacja, ze do zamowien powyzej 200zl przysluguje butelka wina gratis - na miejscu zostalismy poinformowali, ze owszem jest, ale wylacznie do zamowien na wynos. To juz jest oszustwo, bo takiej informacji to juz na stronie nie ma. Odradzam ta restauracje kazdemu!
I, too, wondered about all the variety of foods on the menu and whether they could pull it off. I had a dish from the Thai menu and it was quite excellent. Surprisingly as good as when I was in Bangkok. And firey, which is rare for here. Would be nice to see a simpler menu, but the food is wonderful.
The reviews here really sound like some scam. The Thai curries in this place have no resemblance to anything even remotely Thai! Considering that this restaurant has Thai, CHinese, Sushi and Korean etc. - anyone with even basic understanding of the industry would tell you that it will require 4-5 top notch chefs to pull off so many different cuisines. This place is a disaster in all the areas
I'm gourmet of sushi and I haven't eaten in Cracow better sushi than in Horai. Is the first restaurant I had visited and I was satisfied in 100%: delicious and quick meal, beautiful place, fantastic service. I'm sure I'll go to Horai always if I want to eat a perfect sushi. That is true- HOORAY FOR HORAI:-)
It's fantastic restaurant.I recommend garlic barbecued chicken and roast chicken too. Chinese beer was delicious.Service was very quick and nice.All of the three rooms has some spirit of Japan,China and Thailand.I was
very satisfied with the visit in Horai- the first restaurant like this in Cracow!
