Fantastic food if you can get in. Limited seating and slightly harried service but worth the wait for real food.

Genuine, homemade, Polski żywwność. Doskonałe domowe jedzenie. Portions were just the right size (large for my Polish appetite!) and cost was reasonable too. Even though was bloodline is 100% Polish, I've never been to Polska (3rd generation Pole in American - Polak w Ameryce), but what I understand from pictures and those from Polska, the decor and atmosphere is genuine...

What a fun Polish version of a diner. The place is smallish and packed. The quality of the polish food [and Polish beer and other drinks] and the modest prices explain why. The fast, friendly, competent service just makes it all a real treat. The Pierogi Special consists of a cup of soup [definitely homemade] and 8 [yes, really!] pierogis.... More

If the NY Times said it was "very good", who's the argue. Polish "comfort food" in a warm, neighborhood restaurant with great service. The hot borscht was great. So too the perogie and potatoe pancakes.

A down town New Britain landmark. Traditional home style polish cuisine. Great golombkis for sure. Me and my staff come just for those. Try it out. You'll like it.

I have never been to a Polish restaurant before. We went based on a personal recommendation. After eating there and subsequently reading the recent reviews I have little to add... except ... If you have shied away from Polish food like me, this is the place to come for great service and something quite different and ever so good.

Save the airfare and visit this restaurant for real Polish food. A fun locals restaurant in little Poland in the heart of New Britain...go figure. Excellent Polish dishes from tasty borscht to roast veal with potato pancakes prepared fresh and served by friendly first generation Polish servers. Enjoy!

Authentic Polish, casual atmosphere. Fine cheese and potato pirogies smothered with onions. Borscht was thin, but tasty.

When I asked the lady that stepped out of the kitchen if she was the Chef, she said - in Polish - 'no, I am only the cook'. (She had shown respect to those that received the training, and did not want to claim the title - but, based on my Friday Special I had there last week - she... More
