I always find myself rating other Polish food how it tastes compared to my Mom's. Have to say we were all pleasantly surprised even my Mom how delicious everything was. My husband enjoyed the herring. The borsch soup was wonderful. Potato pancakes were huge and so yummy! Golabki tasted so good. We also had the Gdansk pork roast stuffed with... More

My friend and I, both of Eastern European heritage, but not Polish, sampled a number of dishes over a quiet mid-week lunch. The red borscht (Cold), which had two tasty meat dumplings floating in the brilliant red broth, was very refreshing and very well balanced. The stuffed cabbage was a bit salty, but quite good and very hardy. The stuffing... More

This restaurant is well known for its great food and service. Stuffed cabbage, kielbasa, crispy potato pancakes, beet soup and much, much more...All get an A plus. Dine inside or out. We had a pleasant experience.

This is one of the the best places for polish food in CT. Whenever I am in the mood for perogies I head here and I am never disappointed. They have several different types from the traditional cheese and potato to meat perogies and different sauerkraut perogies. They also have excellent sides, the carrot salad is one of my favorites.... More

We went to Starapolska on the advice of a driver we use to JFK. He was absolutely correct in telling us to go here for authentic Polish food. We went to the restaurant after going to the New Britain Museum of Art. We ate kielbasa, pierogis, stuffed cabbage and potato pancakes. We shared because the food is HEAVY. It was... More

I brought a friend here to experience Polish food. I have been here many times before and always had great food and service. Well the service was not so great this time around, We ate and were given the bill before we finished eating. I paid and we kept talking since they were not overly busy. First the waitress asks...

Not my choice but my granddaughter wanted to go here for lunch. We had blitzes and perogies. My problem with these choices were they we much too crispy and hard. I am used to softer dough. The portions were large and t.he place was packed at 2:30 PM on a Saturday afternoon.
