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.
