We had a great evening meal at Mamuska made by the staff and the food. The lady with the red hair was incredibly helpful. We have a Polish backgrounds and the food was very good and served very quickly and was great value. Ian [not a good polish name!] was very responsive and had a great customer ethics and helped in making the evening very special.

Food is ok but average. Many dishes that were on the menu were not available which was frustrating. We spent some time choosing the dishes but when we went to order food, nothing that we chose was available. They run out of 5 things from the mains and 1 dessert. It was 7 pm so a bit early to run out of food. Not great. They should have told us about it when we arrived.

Hi Inka. Sorry about running out of so many items. You are right to be disappointed and we are sorry. I believe you visited on Tuesday because Wednesday we resolved the problem. We launched our new winter menu on the weekend and we simply had no idea how strong a demand we would have for some of our item. If you want to give us another chance, please email us at info@mamuska.net and we will make sure not to disappoint! Many thanks, Ian and Team

I am from Poland. The concept of the bar / restaurant is good. The range of polish food is good. The prices are good. So what's wrong? The quality and/or taste. We were there twice there. First time, the placki were quite good,the second time they were nearly cold and tasted boring. The other way around was the experience with pierogi - first time good,second time bad.

So please, mamuska ,grow up,be a woman and deliver constant quality and taste!

Hi There weltirol,

Thanks for bringing the inconsistency to our attention. You should have had someone check back with you as you tucked into your meal, and this is the perfect time to take advantage of our "no arguments" satisfaction guarantee! If you had told us your placki were cold we would have made you a fresh plate, or would have given you a substitute meal to make up for it. We will certainly use this as a life-lesson, thanks! Ian (51 and still a child at heart!)

Highlight pierogi - low pork goulash!
Worth a visit to sample authentic tasting polish food at a reasonable price

Cafe!!? Cafe?!! Yeah, ok, we can see that.

Hey Pat,

Thanks for your review. We are a 'fast casual' concept, so we can see why you would call us a cafe. But you and I had better to tell everyone this join JUMPS as a 'bar' or hang-out after dinner, as many people come for dessert and drinks, or just stay all night after dinner. I am curious about your concerns over the gulasz. It is normally a massive hit. Please email me at ian@mamuska.net if you can, to give me more specific feedback. As always, thanks for coming and thanks for the review. See you soon in Birmingham, we hope! Ian and the Team
