Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

When I try to search via XML for phrase "sienkiewicza, lodz":


I get 3 results, none of which is the street Henryka Sienkiewicza in Łódź, which I would expect. Instead, I get 3 other streets named "Henryka Sienkiewicza" in 3 other cities (Brzeziny, Bełchatów and Konstantynów Łódzki), only because there are bus stops named simply "Sienkiewicza".

Are there any search parameters which would allow matching parts of names?

Nota bene: when I get "More results", the street Henryka Sienkiewicza in Łodź appears, so "More results" is seemingly capable of partial matching. How to enable this functionality in first (i.e. not "More results") search?

Thank you for your answers. I will try to use them, photon seems promising. Is there a more detailed API description (i.e. documentation) for photon?
