We had dinner there and were surprised with the welcoming atmosphere, fast service and really tasty food. But they accept only cash, bear in mind. ATM is not far away, but it might be inconvenient to leave the place to get some cash.
Having visited the small museum above, we smelt very tasty cooking aromas that reminded us it was time for lunch. The Tejsza restaurant door is round the back of the museum. At first I did not want to go downstairs into yet another basement restaurant...(why are so many northern European restaurants in dark basements?!?). Anyway, we had lunch and it was absolutely delicious, homemade-style food. We had salads, excellent berry pierogi and tender, moist hamantaschen with tasty fillings, among other things. Everything was tasty. Service was charming and about right in terms of speed. I could see why some other reviewers mentioned it was old-fashioned but that was part of its charm. If visiting Tykocin (which is very interesting), this restaurant should definitely be on the to-do list.More
Nice selection, mostly tasty Served in 70s environment (furniture, cutlery, crockery). But it takes ages to order, to get all bits and bobs, to pay. Poor waitresses looked like they were about to collapse from the hard work for hours (or days???)
Great polish and Jewish food. Service was excellent, very good host and the food was done in no time even though all tables were almost full. the pierogi with meat was just amazing. I will go back from Bialystok here just to eat here again
Very good jewish pierogi, but not very tasty salads and poor soft drinks menu. Employees are not wearing uniforms of any kind, so one can not be sure if the person passing by is a waitress or customer. Good location, next to the synagogue and...museum. Interesting interior.More
The Restauracja Tejsza offered authentic Polish cuisine of the region. I had the best beet soup and fruit pierogi. The nalsniki was delightful. The food was prepared and served by only one or two people but we didn't wait for long. I also purchased a...folk art crochet stork before I left. I will dine at Tejsza instead of returning to the other place in town in the future.More
I actually don't know why does this place has so many high ratings to be honest. First of all, I am definitely not a picky person but this restaurant is not what we expected. I'm all for traditional decor but this place was dark, old-fashioned...(in a bad way), a little bit dirty and just ugly in my opinion. I have never seen more unorganised waitresses in my whole life plus the waiting felt like forever. We really wanted to try Jewish food but we found the dishes really disappointing. Babka ziemniaczana (potato cake) was alright (a little bit burnt) but it was just a casual version of it that we've eaten many times so I would not say that was a Jewish recipe. Same with pierogi which were just Polish pierogi with meat (extremely overcooked by the way, literally drowning in water on the plate) and if I didn't add salt and pepper myself they would not be eatable. And I waited good 40 minutes for them. I liked the apple pie though (should've been served with ice cream as it was a little bit dry but it was the best dish out of everything we ordered).More
