For those nostalgic for Polish food, here's the place. On the menu you'll find: pierogies, bigos (hunters stew), placki ziemniaczane (potato pancakes) and many more. They also have Polish beer on draft (Zywiec). Don't go for lamb - it's not really Polish specialty and yesterday it was too salty. Otherwise, everything else was perfect. Easy access and a large parking... More

Place to try traditional polish dishes. Soups are very good , for appetizer try beef tartare and duck for main course. You can skip desert and don't order coffee.

As most can see many of my reviews are not of this type of cuisine. That is because there are not many Polish restaurants in this part of NJ but if there was/is I highly doubt they would or could be much better then the Royal Warsaw. We had the gambit from apps to dinner and EVERYTHING was very good.... More

They have a good variety of Polish dishes. It is hard to make a decision, luckily they have several combo plates to enjoy.

went for lunch. It was a nice, relaxing lunch with friends. The food was plentiful and yummy, the restaurant was busy but not over crowded and the service was excellent.

Great chow, authentic atmosphere. Not my all-time favorite cuisine but very tasty when I want a change. A bit pricey but fair; good bang for the buck. Good stop for a couple's nite.

Visiting from out of town and met old friends here for a late lunch. Royal Warsaw is one of their favorite restaurants and I can see why. Great atmosphere, food, service and Polish beer on tap. The food is very authentic (I am of Czech heritage and my wife is of Polish heritage). It is a shame Royal Warsaw is... More

My dinner brought to mind meals made by my Babcia (Polish for Grandmother) when I was growing up! Wonderful! Authentic! Delicious!

My husband & I went here recently to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary. We had dinned here previously & enjoyed it. A lot of the menu items I can't pronounce the names of but it doesn't matter since the food is really good and filling. The drink menu is extensive with different varieties of mojitos, daiquiris, margaritas, & coladas &... More
