Bona is a polish restaurant on Freshpond, corner of Myrtle Ave. I ate there twice before; both times it was just ok. I went back again last week for dinner and its gotten much better. This time, we shared the Sauerkraut/Mushroom pierogies, fried. Yes, they were very greasy, but in a good way both crunchy and chewy at the same time, with sweet buttery onions on top. We ordered the Polish platter twice (grilled kielbasa, stuffed cabage, more pierogies), the "meat dumplings" and the stuffed cabbage. Everything was piping hot and delicious (both previous visits produced luke warm dishes, but still good). The salad plates (pickles beet salad, cucumber salads, polish coleslaws) were as good as they have been before, if not better. The one thing that still needs work is the service; maybe its a language barrier. I ordered a side of rice, which I never received, and someone else ordered rice instead if mashed potates that came with the meat dumplings, that never happened either. However, it wouldnt stop me from going back again as I live close by. They have stopped serving Hefeweizen, though bummer, they do however have Spaten on tap. Oh, and the best thing is that they have kept their incredibly low prices. Four of us paid 70 bucks with tips, drinks (3 beer, 3 wines), 4 entrees & appetizers. Thats an amazing bargain.
