Finally tried this place. Very authentic. Great Polish comfort food. Loved the Trout and the breaded pork cutlet. Tried the cheese potatoe dumplings and they were good too, very filling. Friendly atmosphere. Don't be afraid if you don't speak Polish, you will be helped out!...More

First visit here on the recommendation. It was excellent. Ate with 5 others and all liked the food a lot. I had borscht, chicken cutlet and mashed potatoes. Others had pierogi, blintzes, and potato pancakes. Service good. Small place but there was no wait.

Small size restaurant in north-west part of the city, offers a wide assortment of great Polish food, like pierogies, blintzes, stuffed cabbage and many more... Home made taste brings me to this place very often. I recommend this place.

I'm not sure how I missed not going into Smakosz before this, but I'm glad that we finally did. It is right on Lawrence Ave., just west of Central, and there was plenty of street parking. When you enter, there are a number of booths,...More

When you enter into this restaurant, it looks like typical diner because you see the booths there. Next, when you open the menu you find great variety of choices. Normally in places like this you don't have that many choices but here you have. I...More
