“Nice change of pace”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

We have heard good things about this restaurant and decided to give it a try. The schnitzel was delicious, and there was PLENTY of it! Warning - the cabbage rolls are not the flavour you expect - tasted like sauerkraut. That was a disappointment. The vegetable plate with the mixture of steamed and deep fried veggies was different & very good. I liked the atmosphere. We will go again.

“Good, but not great”
Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

The food portions are good, the atmosphere is good, and the service is good. This place has the potential to be great. However, the space is too small for all those tables, the prices are unreasonable, the music sucks, the goulash is mush, and the owner is snooty. I might go back; who knows?

“Meh.”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

MEH.

Dined with friends at the Goulash House on the weekend. Had a great starter potato soup on our previous visit but this time, it was a mushy, bland vegetable soup. My girlfriend barely touched hers. Then I had the chicken paprikish because so many reviewers said they enjoyed it. Not! The little dumplings were cold and tasteless, the sauce was heavy, bland, and luke warm over giant chunks of chicken - meh. I took a few bites and was just put off - I took it home but nope, just couldn't get into the next day, so threw it out. Waste of money. The carrots it came with were good, but didn't justify the experience or the price. My husband had the Jaeger (sp) Schnitzel - it looked dry and he said it was. Yes, the portions are huge but...I find overall the quality is inconsistent. Do something about those spaetzle dumplings...maybe they should have salt added at the cooking stage? Not even the sauce brings them to life. Sorry. Won't be back.

Dear Gail!
I'm really sorry for your less than great experience.
I understand that taste buds can be very different. All I'm asking is to post pictures of meals As you receive them. It would be just more tasteful and respectful. Sincerely Judit Szamosszegi Owner

“Consistently Delicious”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

Went for dinner again last night and enjoyed our meal thoroughly. We have never been disappointed at The Goulash House. The food is authentic and so delicious, favourite dishes are: Beef Goulash, Wiener Schnitzel and Beef Stroganoff. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, the live music is lovely in the background and the service is excellent. One of our favourite restaurants, we will be back!
