We wanted an outstanding version of halászlé. This was not it. The fisherman's soup was okay, not great. Service was fair at best (we had to ask for paprika!!!) and if you want a dollop of sour cream for your soup, they charge extra. They...More

Most of fish foods, but if you don't like fish you have choices from original Hungarian foods. Like Gulyas or csusza... Yami! Professional service. You need book the table if you coming on the weekend. Music from 60-70's Hungarian what is give a good feeling.
