Clearly the person below me went to a different restaurant!! The restaurant is divided into two restaurants, the upstairs 'Knaypa' is where we were. The decor and the small size of the place made it feel very intimate. The music ranged from popular older songs to traditional to modern which added to the atmosphere. We were served by Lukasz who was very nice. We ordered the house wine which was a very nice Spanish red which certainly complemented our meal. Two of our party started off with Zurek (a traditional Polish soup presented in a cut out bread that had an egg and pieces of ham in it- THIS IS A MUST); another had steak tartare- thoroughly enjoyable; we also had the home-made smalec (lard with mushrooms) which was really very nice. Our mains consisted of spinach pierogi; pork schnitzel (which was huge); a traditional beef dish; and chicken breast with vegetables- all big portions well worth the price. Most of us couldn't hack dessert but for those that did it was a Polish apple pie, finely presented with nice tones of cinnamon. Overall it is a very nice place to go to. It's a bit on the pricey side so I wouldn't go there every week but for a special occasions or to introduce your friends\colleagues to Polish cuisine The Knaypa is a MUST!!


Visiting the restaurant for my friends birthday last night. There were 15 of us. Food was nothing special, very overpriced for what it was. Service was slow and the waitress was extremely rude. Talking and insulting us in Polish!!! We tried to contact the manager by telephone who didnt speak English and then hung up. We brought our own birthday cake and asked if we could have it at the end of the meal, they had the cheek to try and charge us £30 for this 'privelige'. Unbelievable. Obviously we refused. On the whole a very dissapointing birthday meal. Would never return or recommend this restaurant to anyone!!!
