I don't know who ever advised us to visit this place? We were the only 2 people in the restaurant. Food was terrible. Gypsy music was mostly old Russian songs and musician ware too annoying playing right next to our table and making eyes at me... fishing to tips.

Disgusting tourist scum. Bad food arrogant waitress and annoying gipsy musicians. They destroyed our brought birthday cake. They did not fulfil any extra request... The musicians did not let you talk they play in your ears an kept asking for money. I am local and ashamed of this place.

This is a so called "typical" Hungarian restaurant, but as I Hungarian I would really die of shame if all the restaurants having Hungarian cuisine would be as horrible as this is (they aren't, thank God!).
I could list a few reasons why I don't recommend it: don't bother to reserve a table, they will not keep it in case some tourist group comes in with full pockets! The food is overpriced and quite bad. You could go to a real good place in Budapest enjoying quality dishes with the same price or less. The waiters are not really attentive, they bring you a dish and you have to ask for the cutlery! I had the feeling that there were too few waiters for a busy evening, so not too good management. When asking them what they recommended, they immediately recommended the most expensive dish.
Avoid it from far far away!!!

One more restaurant targeting any kind of tourists travelling to Budapest. And when you target people that you don't plan to see again in the near future, you can afford bad service and mediocre to bad food.
Tuning the band's instruments once in a while wouldn't be a bad idea also.
Just my opinion after 3 years in Budapest and after visiting several places in this town..
