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

Very good Hungarian comfort food. Odd location, quirky atmosphere. Slow but friendly service. Have I reached 50 characters yet?

What a treat it was to find such a cozy place with homemade food near the Interstate! On our long trek across Connecticut and New York this place was a nice break. The couple that owns, cooks, and serves is very warm and welcoming. We had a delicious meal that fortified us for the remainder of our journey. Goulash (of... More

This small restaurant is run by a Hungarian couple who have been in the business for over 35 years. Four of us ate there while traveling on business based on Tripadvisor review and we really enjoyed it! Among us we had the Transylvania goulash, the beef goulash, and the stuffed cabbage, all with dumplings. And we had two bottles of... More

Goulash Place Loved it We had an incredible dinner last night at the Goulash Palace. I rate this restaurant as the best restaurant in the Connecticut-NY-NJ area!!! We drove nearly 60 miles (not the first time either) to eat in this true gem of a place. It's a little hard to find in Danbury, but it's worth it. Food is... More
