“Characterful and cheap traditional restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Well, this is a good self-service restaurant which isn't soulless like many. It's more like a milk bar, but with a fanciful decor.

Traditional Polish food is served canteen-style, but you can then go an eat it in a nook or corner decorated to look like a Polish cottage. Very cosy.

The prices are very affordable. We went early evening when it wasn't busy, and had a very pleasant time. The waitresses didn't seem to speak English, but since you can see all the food on offer, all you have to do is point at what you want!

I use to come to Czarna Oberza very often during my staying in Torun. I like that place for the atmosphere and very good food. It is great when you need cozy place for a meeting with your friends.

“Bad experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2011

The Restaurant was crowdy and the tables looked sticky. The waitress totally ignored us and for about 5 minutes we stood there, just feeling ignored and awkward. I tried to speak with a waitress but she even avoided to look at me. Maybe they have self service. It was not possible to find out excactly. After a while we left hungry and angry.

“A great place to sample Polish food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

We visited this restaurant with friends from Torun who were anxious to have us enjoy a real Polish meal. You order straight from a large buffet, where the staff spends time explaining what the various dishes are. Your meal includes starch and sides, and the portions are large. They offer a selection of good local beers to accompany dinner. The decor is very cozy and conducive to a friendly, casual meal. I would highly recommend this restaurant for travelers looking for a real Polish meal, in a great atmosphere, at a reasonable price.

“Tempting buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2010

You can compose you own set of meat+veggie+potatoes by choosing from the buffet. There's also pierogi. The decor here is rustic.
