“Great pierogi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

This was my first try of pierogi. Me and my mum went a bit mad and ordered two each. The potato and bacon ones and spinach and cheese ones were fabulous. Definitely recommended. We also tried the sweet versions. Cherries and sweet cheese and cinnamon. Neither we particularly liked. Stick to the savoury they went with the dough better. Scrumptious!! Really cute little shop too. Very small but worth it!

“Off the deck amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014 via mobile

The line is out the door
And in Poland, you know you're on to a good thing with that!
We went to this one, and the other across the river
We feel in love, the smell is just amazing, and the first bite is delicious
We had the traditional pork meat and then potato/cheese ones
Tiniest little places handmade and just delicious
So cheap too! Only 7.5zlts per serve (9 pieces) more than enough!
Couldn't recommend enough!!!

“Life Changing Pierogi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

If you need Polish pierogi (and trust me, you do) then go here. They're homemade in a tiny little hole in the wall and absolutely delicious. Best idea is to get a mix of different fillings. All are fluffy and flavorful. Be sure to get the onions with them- they're caramelized to perfection and have just a touch of salt. I could eat them as is! To make the deal even sweeter, the meals are cheap for a traveler on a budget. Delicious, economical, and satisfying, these were the perfect introduction to pierogi for me.

“Fast food at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

We popped in here for some pierogi (Polish dumplings) for lunch. It's extremely cheap - 2 portions of dumplings and 2 cokes for under £5. Service is quick and friendly. We particularly liked the Russian dumplings - cottage cheese filling. Remember to clear your own plate - no hardship for food as reasonable and tasty as this! Also prepare to share your table at busy times.

“Real Polish food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2013

There's only 6 seats around a shelf basically in a room that's no more than 10 feet square with a door that opens inwards so it gets mega crowded.

We went at lunch time and struggled to get a seat but the dumplings were amazing and the lady serving was really friendly.

The volume of locals and students who came in during the 30 minutes we were there was phenomenal - we were definitely the only English people snd the only tourists.

I'd definitely recommend it :-)
