SquareMeal Review of
You might initially raise an eyebrow at The Knaypa’s try-hard Polish dining room, with its glossy red furniture & soon-to-date wallpaper. But descend to the basement & you’ll find a quirky
set-up of chunky wooden tables, stripped floorboards & hanging tankards – like a Hollywood version of an old Polish inn (or ‘knaypa’). Wherever you sit, prepare for an onslaught of food served
by friendly staff. Portions are generous & prices low, whether it’s Polish dumplings, zurek (soup made from boiled eggs & sausage) or the house speciality of golonka: roast shank of pork
with cabbage & mustard. Those keen to avoid stodge might struggle, but could opt for pickled herrings with sour cream. If you’re feeling macho, bypass the workmanlike wine list in favour of the
vast choice of vodkas.
