This is a very busy place. Food is very good and very Good value. On Saturday evening there was line music who were very Good, not modern music but we could appreciate their skill. People were queuing out the door lunchtime and evening. A place where you can try polish food.

We had lunch in this restaurant, because it looked nice. When we entered the service was good and we were brought to our table, but that was the only positive. When ordering we felt like we had to hurry. The soup tasted not good and the main course was even worse. The Pierogi was burned and tasted like I was... More
