We booked a table for 8 people on a Saturday night for a birthday. None of us had tried polish food before and had seen the great reviews on here.
I loved the interior design of the place. True polish authentic feel to it which was great however the building itself isn't the best and neither are the small toilets which are shared with the bar next door.
Service throughout was fantastic and the waiter who unfortunately I didn't get the name of, gave us recommendations for what to order.
For starters we had a mixed of pierogi, which were very tasty but a bit salty for some. Other people has the Sheeps cheese which was fantastic and went down well.
I enjoyed the pierogi, the outer layer looks undercooked but it's very tasty however id recommend to share them if you order them before a main.
For my main I had the pork knuckle. The pork fell off the bone so easily and was a beautiful soft texture however it was slightly bland and lacking in flavour. I was hoping to taste more of the ham itself. The skin was difficult to cut into without a sharp knife. Still enjoyed it but wasn't as good as I thought it would be. The potatoes were superb, simple boiled potatoes seasoned with dill but they were superb. Portions as expected were enormous and I couldn't finish the plate despite enjoying it.
Others had the beef stew which I think id go for if I went back. Some had the chicken and my partner had the dumplings for mains which she said was too salty and couldn't eat it, other than that we enjoyed the food but didn't blow us away.
We had a fair few drinks with it, the polish beer went down very well. The drinks were expensive but food value was about right.
Enjoyed the night as a whole, great in parts but some parts a let down. Great service, authenticity and a good night. I'd go back but there's other places I'd go back to before, definitely worth a try at least once for a truly traditional polish experience.
