To us, this is the best option in Budapest, we even came back in the next evening for another dinner. Food are great, price is also reasonable. Soup, main dishes, local food, and so on, everything is great. You may need to wait more than 30 mins if you come too late.

Here you can eat lot of different Hungarian dishes. The foods are really good and the prices are low. I think this is the most worth Hungarian restaurant in the center of Budapest. I can highly recommend it.

Dishes were dirty, and we waited quite a long time for food which was average. I would go someplace else if i were you.

Staff were rude. Food is average but admittedly cheaper compared to other similar restaurants. The greatest disappointment were dirty dishes and cutlery as well as the very long time we had to wait from the moment we ordered food until it was served.

Well, we were hungry in the middle of Budapest and suddenly found this restaurant. Then I remembered I had read about this restaurant here, so why not to try it? The space is very cramped, the whole restaurant made me feel like they used everything they found for the decorations. The menu is crazy. Service was ok, food also good...... More

We were looking for a low-cost lunch in the city center and decided to try this one because of its hungarian cousine and sympathetic menu. We had lunch there later afternoon at about 4 pm so the place was not that overcrowded and we caught a table right away. We were served promptly and the waiter was nice and friendly.... More

Overall the food is not really good. We ordered the cheese soup, beef goulash and chicken paprika. It wasn't well cooked and tasty at all.

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
