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.

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

Our friend invited us to this cool Polish restaurant. The restaurant was close to highway so it was short trip from Fort Lee. Since we never been to Polish restaurant our friend family recommended a few popular ones. Food was great, quite atmosphere. Love to go back soon.

Eastern European Food is rather bland but I enjoy it. This is a destination that will not disappoint you. Try it and enjoy something new if you never had Polish food before just about anything will be good. I have been there several times and enjoyed it every time.

Food was fresh and tasty. A good option is to try a platter with a variety of items. Nice decor, comfortable seating and friendly wait staff.

Great experience to taste lots of different types of Polish food. A little of this and a little of that and shared with others was great fun. Pierogies were terrific, potatoe pancakes wonderful. They also now have inexpensive specials which we did not try. Enjoy
