I was staying nearby so I went in. The building is impressive but seems geared to tourists. Not really an authentic experience

I also agree that eating outside the Central Market Hall is a better idea. There are so many places along Vaci Utca that are more affordable and have more seating options. Just browse around the CM Hall and get an impression... More
