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

Haven't had such good Polish food even in my own house! Soups, main dishes, desserts.. Even the water was fantastic! Also have to say the staff was really nice and helpful with everything and wifi connection saved my life. If going back to NJ, I'm definitely going back to that restaurant!

A Polish friend of mine referred me to Royal Warsaw so decided to try it. Luckily we called for a reservation. Busy waiting area and bar. But we were quickly seated and pleasantly surprised by the live music. There was a man who played an array of instruments including the accordion which he strolled around playing especially for birthdays. The... More

First time visiting this restaurant after being recommended by several friends. They have a full and varied menu. I'll definitely come back to try other items on their menu. Their Cod entree was cooked to perfection and their filet minion was incredible. We had their sampler plate for an appetizer and enjoyed their pierogi, potato pancake and the very tasty... More

If you savor Polish cuisine, this restaurant is a find. Honest and simple yet exquisitely delicious, the food here is plentiful and attractively served. The pierogis are a reminder of growing up when this was typical meatless Friday fare. The pork cutlet stuffed with a creamy mushroom sauce was extraordinary as was the herring appetizer. There is a great selection... More

We went to Royal Warsaw for dinner tonight and we all ordered different meals. The stuffed cabbage, kielbasa and pierogi were delicious. We ordered cheese crepes for dessert, and while out of this world they were pricey (2 crepes for $11.99). Our waiter was personable and very attentive making this delicious dinner very enjoyable.

The food is excellent, authentically Polish. The pierogi are wonderful. The soups are great. Schabovy Moscow Style is to die for.
