I like Karczma a lot. Recently, I think their food quality is going down but it's still one of the best polish food. Sometimes there is a problem to get a table there. I wish they took reservations.

First time visit and was expecting "Grandma's" cooking. A little disappointed when the parogies and potato pancakes were deep fried. Otherwise the food in general was very good, plentiful and reasonable.
