SquareMeal Review of The Knaypa

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.

In april I had my wedding reception in “The Knaypa”. The food was adequate. The drinks were too expensive. The room downstairs doesnt fit 40 people there were 30 of us and we were just able to fit. All of our requirements were not fulfilment. It ruined our beautiful day. We were extremely disappointment. We would never recommend this restaurant to anyone.
