Loved every morsel. Excellent service and fairly priced. Didn’t have the vodka match so will have to go back to experience that.

Went for my birthday to connect with my Polish roots (grandfather). Big portions. Easily shareable. Vodka shots $10 were interesting flavours. Everyone loved their food and we left full! No room for dessert. Not cheap, but worth it.

Another filling brunch at a favourite cafe that serves plenty of good quality food with great service. We’ve been here before and must come back for dinner even though it is a 45min drive from home - it’s worth the effort.

It’s really not that often I give 5* so this was really impressive. A simple building, bistro style, so not ‘posh’ surroundings, but relaxed and with great service. My OH had the beef, while I had the venison, both cooked to perfection, with veg that...More

A great little suburban restaurant that serves authentic Polish and Eastern European food. Importantly about half of the dishes cater for gluten allergies - mains and desserts. We enjoyed a lovely quiet meal for two. The mains were amply sized and the two we selected...More
