Fancied this place as it looked the traditional Polish type. Menu states the cutlet is the signature dish. Dont have it as it was bland although well cooked. Menu states "20 minute wait on all orders" - ours took this but the table next to us wernt served after 45mins when we left.

I went here twice, which the first visit was a great experience and secound over salted disaster. Let's start with staff... They not transmit happiness to customer... They are very sad. Food, depend what you take. I got good and bad. Just try it.

The prices for the food and drinks are good, the food tasted okay and the size of the servings where good. My only complaint is the female waiters....on two occasions, two different people...they really looked like... More

We got different types of pierogi and barszcz. Everything tasted very fresh and delicious. Staff was not very friendly, but would still recommend.

This is a low key place on a street chockful of restaurants. They have a bar area with a couple of tables and a bigger dining room. Delicious pierogis with caramelized onions/bacon. Goes down well with a beer! Nice staff.
