It was a joy to find this little out of the way restaurant with old world Hungarian food and style. To be able to have a quiet conversation without clattering dishes, loud music and big TV screens alone made the trip worthwhile; excellent fare like Hungarian goulash and stuffed cabbage along with friendly diners, great service and a visit from...

We were looking for a quaint spot to have lunch in Danbury. TripAdvisor had some great reviews for GOULASH PLACE so we ventured in that direction. The owner John Aczek greeted us and cooked for us. We had two Hungarian dishes, one chicken and the other veal, served with dumplings. Both were excellent! We thoroughly enjoyed our conversation with the... More

Being a fan of hungarian food, and being a cold and snowy night in December, my girlfriend and I wanted to have some warm food. She found this hungarian place online, and reading the good reviews we decided to try it. We ordered two of the three goulash available. She had the Hungarian Goulash (that is a thick soup) and...

Yes! This place is the real deal, and if you get the chance to meet the owner, you realise this! He is a total character and is the epitome of "the american dream". Here is a guy who came from Europe to escape communism and start a life....and that he has....and he knows his food! We had the stuffed cabbage... More

Small, unpretentious little restaurant, rather out of the way, but well worth finding. I had an excellent spicy soup followed by goulash with dumplings. Really fiery and tasty. And then some kind of coconutty pudding with cream - yummy. Very nice couple running the place who trusted me to come back with the cash as I only had an Amex... More

This is a gem in the middle of Danbury. If you're not from the area, bring a GPS. Parking is limited as well as seating. It is clean but you'll find a bit of 80's vintage restaurant with a bar left. Ok the food is as best as you can get if you like Hungarian. This is a must go... More

The. Food. Is. Very. Good. We did not want to eat at a chain and are so glad we tried this place. This reminded us of family run informal restaurants we visited in Austria. The food is all homemade by the owners. And it is very reasonably priced. I had the special plate (sampler of 3 entrees). The dumplings were... More
