We dropped on this little gem totally by accident. The food was really top quality and the service was exceptional. We had the stuffed cabbage leaves and the schnitzel (can't remember the Polish names.) We were served local beer and wine. Wine from Leeds -...who knew? Not me!! But it was rather good. Highly recommended.More

Ordered Zurek (Polish soup), Pierogi (Polish dumplings) and Chicken schnitzel. All 3 dishes took me back to when I first tried them in Poland. If you like Polish food or just want to try what it is about then this is the place for you,...the staff here are also very friendly and want to show an authentic Polish food experience!More

We wanted to try something different and searched for best Polish restaurants in our area and Smak came up scoring highest. A small cozy place with delicious food and very friendly staff. We even got to hear some Kraków folklore about dragon - great experience...all round :)More

The food was very good indeed. However, by the end of our meal it became clear that the waitress, who I thought was just being professional, but indifferent, was actually hostile towards us. It was uncomfortable for us as we we were friendly and warm...towards her. I'm not sure if it was because we are a British family or whether it is because I told her my husband is half Russian. Either way, something was definitely off in her attitude towards us. What confirmed my suspicions that it was more than just a personal dislike towards us was when I saw her greet a couple warmly smiling, with the words 'Are you Polish?" (they replied that they were Slovakian). I will let you decide how important it is for you to go to this restaurant. Despite the great chefs and the food they cook, we cannot recommend Smak!.More
