Little Poland Restaurant
Posted by Banjoandro on 01/02/2008
Ate here around 1:00 pm on New Year's Day and had some of the worst food I've ever had in NYC. The waiters never filled our coffee, the bananna pancakes were mushy, and my fiance's bacon was half raw and stuck together in one huge mess. The cost for all this was over $15 bucks! Granted it was New Years Day so maybe all the workers were a little off, but nevertheless I will be avoiding this restaurant for the rest of my hopefully long life.

I come from a Polish family, that cooks traditional Polish food once in a while, and this place was AMAZING! The stuffed cabbage was fantastic. Also the combination platter was cheap for the amount of food we received. It was crazy. A definite must!

Delicious food at a reasonable rate. We read the reviews here and ordered the breaded pork chop and they were right - tender, juicy, crisp - yummy! We also ordered the potato pancakes, I think anything fried there tastes great. Not too greasy, not too burnt, just right. 3 people ate till they couldn't move, for around $50, which I thought was reasonable. We would definitely go again. A good find.

I eat here once a month or so. I grew up eating homecooked polish food. That is what you get here. Try a plate of peirogies they are awesome. Also there arent alot of restaurants in manhattan where you can walk out stuffed for about 10 $. Try it

This place is delicious and cheap, what else could you possibly ask for? Their pirogies are standard but yummy, go for the sauerkraut and mushroom. You MUST also have their breaded pork chops, if the polish know anything it's how to cook tender pork. Friendly service to boot!

The soups here are phenomenal. Servers are totally sweet; love that this place is family-owned - you can feel that vibe when you're there. ADORE their potato pancakes, even moreso now that the 2nd Avenue Deli is gone. Prices are unbelievable for real, legit meals. The food reminds me of what my Eastern European grandmother used to make growing up. If only this place had delivery!

Little Poland is totally worth a visit, ...or two, ...or more... My husband discovered it one day and we have become regulars ever since. The food is delicious. My mom and I make own own pierogies at home and theirs are second only to ours. The roast pork tenderloin is unbelieveable and I love to end each meal with a piece of cheese Babka, lightly toasted with butter. There are a few items which could use some "tweaking". The meatloaf is way too garlickly, (I had leftovers in my fridge and had to throw it out as it stunk up everything else in there), and the roast chicken is bland...(hey ladies, how about taking some of the flavor from the meatloaf and rubbing it on the chicken?), and some of the vegetables are blah and overcooked. The three vegetables that never disappoint are the sauerkraut, the potatoes in any form, and the cucumber salad. The sauerkraut has been properly rinsed to make it sweeter, and it has shredded carrot, carroway seeds, and butter. YUM! Their soups are fabulous too. I don't care where you have eaten, and may your grandmothers forgive me, but Little Poland makes the absolute best chicken noodle soup you will ever taste. (All it needs is a good matzo ball and I would be in heaven!) Most places barely put any chicken in their soup, but LP puts a nice big chunk right on top. Don't forget to ask for a slice of Challah with butter to dip in it. Whenever I have a cold my husband gets me a quart to go. It's better than Dayquil/Nyquil! As for service, 99% of the time it's good. Occasionally we have had minor problems, but nothing significant enough to stay away. (Most of the people I notice complaining are the types who never have anything nice to say anyway. If you are so picky then stay home!) The atmosphere is fine too. It's like a small diner, nothing fancy or overdone. They put their energy into good food, not fancy-schmancy decor. As for the value, the prices are on par with most NYC diners.
