Great no thrills basement restaurant that serves big plates of traditional polish home cooked food, Sunday is a wide spread of buffet that is paid by weight, 99p per 100 grams, so you get a decent meal cheaply, go there often with the kids..

One of the brightest spots in the area. Delicious homemade food, friendly staff and great atmosphere. Tired of italian/chinese/indian/thai cuisine? Me to! I think it's a high time to try sth. different.
As for dishes- i love dumplings and "golonka" (huuuuge!) but they also serve lovely soups i.e. "zurek" with traditional polish sausage and egg.
If you like to test more than just one main course- pop in during weekend when they have this buffet thing (you pay 99pence for 100grams of food) so you can mix-and-match your perfect lunch.
Make sure you order some polish lagers (lech!, perla!), and speaking bout liquors- did you know that vodka is actually polish invention? They serve crazy "herbs vodka-sprite-cucumber(yes!)-lemon-drink" which is pretty delicious.
Grab your friends/fam and give them a shot.

If you are looking for traditional Polish food that is the place where you can safely go. The selection in menu is excellent and in both languages giving you opportunity to try famous pierogi, placki ziemniaczane, kotlet schabowy, kotlet mielony or bigos. During the weekends they have buffet with a different menu, so you can try a bit of everything. It might be quite busy during the day though. The prices are very affordable and the portions have good size, so it is definitely worth the money. They are selling Polish beers too, so you can enjoy a bit of Lech, Zywiec, Warka or Tyskie with your meal. There is no problem with take away too.You pay at the counter at the end of your meal, so do not wait for the bill at the table. They are also supporting events like Christening, birthdays etc. with the food while the party is upstairs. Strongly recommended.
