Going in it feels like someone has invited you to eat at their house Small tables set casually give it relaxed homey feel The menu is small, but don't let that turn you off every dish we ordered was a large portion and we all with a box for left overs

Nice home style kitchen and dining. Authentic Hungarian in Ewing, Barbara's has been here for about 8 years. My first time and only one other person in the dining room on this snowy winter day. At our table of three, we had stuffed cabbage, chicken and beef paprikas. The portions were plentiful and although the cabbage was gobbled up at... More

Tastes like home. Always stop here for take-out when in need of some delicious comfort food. I've only once eaten at the restaurant and although cute feels a little cold. I prefer to bring the food home.

If you are looking for real, home-made chicken soup from scratch, then this is your place. Steamy hot, loaded with noodles, chicken, and veggies just the way mom used to make. Many, many other places will say they have home-made soup, but what you are getting is something bought from wholesale vendors in big tubs! I always get a couple... More

Having Eastern European ancestors and in the are for the weekend we decided to try Barbara's. Upon entering the restaurant there is authentic Hungarian items on the walls which adds to the homey feeling. My wife and I started with a red cabbage hot salad which was excellent. I ordered the breaded chicken schnitzel which I could hear sizzling in... More

The real deal, folks. Barbara and her husband (two dedicated, hard working Hungarian immigrants) consistently serve up delicious authentic Hungarian cuisine in a clean, pleasant and friendly environment. From top to bottom, the menu is chock full of classics like tasty goulash, delicious stuffed cabbage, tender breaded pork cutlet, with sides like tangy cucumber salad, yummy dumplings, and specials like...

Authentic Hungarian food just like my Mom and Grandmother made. Chicken paprikas was second only to my Mom and Grandmother's. Seriously, if your craving Hungarian food (or if you've never had Hungarian food), come to Barabra's. This is the best in home cooking, with a warm, homey atmosphere and the nicest people you'll ever meet.

We were looking for a place to eat after the movies. Rejected all the chains and Princeton restaurants. Drove by to make sure it wasn't a dive and were pleased with how cute and clean the place looked. We were there at 3 PM on a Sunday. We were greeted warmly by the owners/Chefs. Very nice couple how answered all... More

The sauce is great, there is plenty of meat and rice, and the cabbage is tender.... I always have my leftovers at home the next night... Or, two people could share stuffed cabbage and also have any of the other items on the menu.... The restaurant is always pleasant and clean.... There are usually available tables, but that is because... More
