I really like Royal Warsaw. I particularly like their tripe soup, which is delicious. The potato pancakes and piroggies are good to excellent depending on the night. The draft beer is also good. The location and prices give this restaurant a solid rating. The only thing that I don't like, is the inconsistent kilbasi dishes. Sometimes they are good, sometimes... More

Always wanted to stop here and finally did for lunch and I was not disappointed. Delicious authentic Polish food, generous portions, very reasonable price, comfortable atmosphere. Very good service with staff that can speak Polish or English whichever you prefer. Plenty of parking and a convenient location. Everyone should try it with a diverse menu selection to please all.

Dined at Royal Warsaw with my daughter last evening and it was phenomenal. My daughter started with Polish goulash which I shared and it was quite tasty and rather filling. For entrees I had the Warsaw sampler, stuffed cabbage, kielbasa, hunters stew and a sampling of pierogi. And they were all really good and perfect on a cold winter's night.... More

Growing up Polski, I only knew my Mom's authentic Polish cooking. I have tried various places and they always fell short. I came with low expectations and now I can't wait to go back. We were a group of 10 celebrating my niece's second birthday! The service was friendly and attentive and since not everyone was not familiar with the... More

Only order the true Polish dishes and you will not be disappointed. Their potato pancakes are too smooth for my taste and not so much like the real homemade as in Warsaw so authentic but full of taste. Nice authentic liquors and beers and many from the Old World to choose, as are their very nice desert menu and big... More

First off, if you are on a diet, this is not the restaurant for you. The meal was just wonderful. On a cold day, I need some comfort food and the Royal Warsaw's food I was in the mood for that evening. Skip the bread basket as it is Italian bread that does not fit into the restaurant menu and...

We ate dinner at Royal Warsaw. The restaurant is big and the place was packed on a Friday night. Our waitress was very nice and made suggestions for our entrees, which we took. I had the stuffed pork with mushrooms, cheese and onions. It came with a huge side of mashed potatoes. The pork was juicy and tasty. Overall, it... More

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
