-- if you're Polish, that is. I'm addicted to the potato blintzes with mushroom gravy, and this is also where to go if you have a craving for beets (not nasty pickled "harvard" beets, but proper grated or mashed beets left to be wonderful all on their own). Hit the cold kompot in the summertime, and hint: fried pierogi go well with applesauce AND fried onions AND sour cream. At once. Yes, really. I noticed someone complaining that the "all-Polish staff" ignores them; uh, I think that would be the "overworked all-Polish staff." I have never spoken Polish here, so I'm not getting special consideration, and while the service can be poky, that's about what I'd expect when there's one waitress for 12 tables all of which are full. You'll need to rest for a while anyway, both to prepare to dig in to your meal and to recuperate afterward, so relax.

Used to live in NJ and ended up eating at Little Poland everytime I was that far down town. Heading back for a visit and will definitely drop in for the BIGOS and the Mushroom Noodles. If you want good service, don't eat in NY. If you want great food, eat at Little Poland.

We found 4 places on Manhattan that serve polish cuisine & so far this place was the best! The food is excellent, affordable & the portions are big. Traditional polish dishes are authentic. The staff is bi-lingual, so any Poles visiting the area will have no problems communicating ;-) As for the service, our waitress was both quick & pleasant - I didn't notice any tables being overlooked. Overall - a super experience & highly recommended!

A friend of mine kept raving about Little Poland's boiled beef with horseradish sauce. I finally gave in and tried it - where has this dish been all this time? It is awesome! They give you a very generous portion of beef that is so tender it practically melts in your mouth. It is covered is a delicious horseradish sauce that complements it perfectly - plus, you get a choice of two side dishes! Their noodles with gravy is the perfect accompaniment - when you order this to take out, they fill half the tin tray with the beef and the other half with the delicious egg noodles. Does it get any better than this? Nope - and for only $8.95!

I wait for it to get cold outside just so I can go inside and eat at Little Poland. I know it's simple, but their tomato soup is the most delicious thing I've ever eaten. And I love the little cramped space, I'm not sure why it just seems to fit perfectly when it's 4 degrees outside. The little wooden benches are perfect for cramming too many people into to keep warm. And usually I go with a lot of people, because everyone that I've ever introduced to the food always wants to go back! I've had nearly everything on the menu and so far no complaints in the slightest. I love it. I LOVE it.

The food had that old world Polish quality, in that you definetly get enough to eat. Try the Potato Lamb soup. A potato, broth, and a big ol' lamb shank coming out the top. No beer, which was a disappointment, and no cushions for the seats on the booths. They were a small price to pay for the excellent food, which I cannot say enough how generous the portions are. Lots of menu selections and it only cost $22 for me and my uncle to have soup and dinner there! About $8 per entree. I shall most assuredly be returning.

I love this place.. Its price is affordable and food is great. Why pay the price of commercial food like tgif etc when you can have homestyle food for less. I love the pierogies especially the regular potatoes. Steam or fried with lots of sweet onions and sour cream. The potato pancake with beef is good too also known as the hungarian style potato pancakes, it a potato pancake layered with lots of beef stew (juicy) then with another pancake on top.. I love the chicken noodle soup. Big chunks of breast meat lots of noodles and just enough soup to fill the brim. ugh I am gonna go there now.. c ya
