Comfort food and more!!! Interesting arrangement of tables to both sides of the entrance and an elevated lounge area with tall tables for overflow crowds or those who wish to watch TV. The layout is very cozy and the booths are attractive and give a sense of privacy. Their menu is expansive...try the Warsaw Sampler platter ($16.95) with stuffed cabbage,... More

Royal Warsaw Restaurant has been around for some time and I recently decided to have lunch here. For what it's worth, I grew up eating Polish food in Passaic with my dad which was never a white linen experience, mostly mom and pop places that made wonderful hearty dishes and always plenty of fresh rye bread. The restaurant is pleasing... More

Wanted to sample everything. The list of choices were terrific. Not what I expected but turned out to be better.

I have been here several times. Every time is a fine dining experience. The food is great, the service is great, the place is very clean. I would recommend the restaurant for the fish alone. I always have the same. Try it and you will have a fine dining experience.

Excellent authentic pirogi, kielbasa, and potatoe pancakes. There is not one bad thing on the menu. They also have an excellent bar with top shelf liquors, especially vodkas.

Went for a family birthday party. Place is very nice and clean. Portions are generous. Food was average as well as the service. Very very busy. Prices are fair, too. Just wasn't tickled by several of our food choices. Pierogies were good

To the extent that I am familiar with authentic Polish food and atmosphere, this place seems to do it, and do it extremely well. For those wanting traditional American dishes, they do a great job at that as well. Having visited at times when a number of large parties were taking place they manage to provide superb service, preparation, and... More

Good food, resonable prices. Authenic polish cuisine. Excellent sevice. Staff more than willing to help guide in choosing which dishes you would enjoy

We visit Royal Warsaw quite often on the weekends for delicious comfort foods like potato pancakes, pierogis, bigos (hunter stew), and more. My favorite entree is Przekladaniec Zakopianski (a pan-fried pork cutlet served with potato pancakes, a mushroom sauce, and a side of veggies). The specials are always good (try the BBQ pork ribs). I never have enough room for... More

If it's traditional, Polish fare you seek, look no further. Pirogi, stuffed cabbage, kielbasa; it's all here and it's absolutely delicious. This is, just about, the ONLY place to get grandma's cooking in a restaurant setting.
