We were looking forward to trying out polish good but we were a bit disappointed.. I had the trout and it was bland, tasteless with potatoes that tasted ok. My husband had the pork shin and it was very fatty. Kids were happy with their...More

Decent food, big portions, self-service (order at the counter and pay immediately). Food is ready quite quickly (surprisingly!). The atmosphere in the place is in my opinion not the nicest- it's a little dark and you don't have any (real) windows (it's in a cellar)....More

As others have said, great ambiance (in a fun kitschy sort of way). Food was tasty - best to share as the portions are huge and the food is filling. The woman helping us spoke great English and was very patient. Fun experience and recommended!

Don't let looks fool. Follow the signs thru the building to enter in the courtyard. Down the stairs to a hidden gem. Local wonderful cuisine and crazy decor. Order at the counter and they will call your number.

This place is the real deal, serving tasty polish food in a funky setting meant to evoke an old style village eatery, replete with Grandma hovering in the background. All the usual polish staples are on offer and we opted for pierogi and rolled chicken...More

We were recommended to visit the place by the locals. It's pretty difficult to be found but once you do so, you'll be rewarded with delicious food and huge portions! Let me say, pierogi dish is the winner (try baked/fried ones!).
