Having been in this establishment before and being singularly unimpressed by anything it had to offer bar the decor and that is just about bearable I should have known better, but they surpassed themselves on my May visit.I appreciate that Shopping Mall restaurants are at best stopgap facilities and also know ,I chose to eat there, but that being said I was subjected to the indignity of having had to endure the attitude of the sourest faced, bad mannered waitress I have ever encountered just to purchase a badly presented awfully cooked apology for a meal and to pay an exorbitant price for the privilege. Never again. Hungary is one of the gems on this planet The food , drink and every form of food outlet have me the happy fat pudding shaped creature that I am, but this establishment is far from welcoming, or indeed nourishing. Strangely(or perhaps not) that same evening, their branch at the Airport closed well before last flights were due to depart and another batch of the same style of affected , full of their own importance staff were lolling about killing time til the last passenger departed. Not merely NOT GOOD ENOUGH simply NOT GOOD avoid

I generally like Leroy restaurants and their menu..I like the most probably the one in Mammut..It looks good and the atmosphere is pleasant.. However, in Westend the stuff once broight me another cocktail than I ordered, which was twice more expensive than the one I ordered

We tried the place twice, and both time great service, and the food was very tasty - especially the sushi. Compared to other fish restaurants, this one is defiantly good! The price level was average imo, even other says it's expensive.

second vist to budapest with friends
me and my husband kept raving about this place to them

i ordered a hamachi set dinner, i requested it rare, which was cooked brilliantly

however the food that was ordered was very disapoointed

we then ordered 3 large sashimi platters, trio sashimi platter, beef capaccio, yellowtail sashimi and a selection of other nigris

some of the fish...tuna in particular you could tell the fish was not defrosted 100%, it still had like frozen cold sensation.... it felt like it was either that or the fridge was set at 0 degrees, it had like a hard texture to it

second problem

THE CHEF DID NOT WIPE HIS KNIFE EVERY TIME HE CUT A DIFFERENT FISH!!!

one fish was particular fishy... i think it was scallop, and the other sashimi had that taste to it

me and my husband being chefs staright away said the chef had not wiped his knife

although most was forced eaten

we was very disappinted... didn't leave much of a tip!!!

p.s pictures look good... but its def decieving

after shopping around west end, my husband didn't want food court food
so we came here
between 3 of us, we ordered little at first as we never been to budapest before and b we dont know what the quality is like
compared to uk the prices is very cheap, although the nigri you order by one and not in pairs

our bill for late lunch was 24000 forint, yes that sounds expensive but we ordered alot of food!! in toal we ordered 3 times

the sweetness of the seafood (especially the scallop) was so sweet you wonder how come its so fresh as hungary has no shoreline

we also ordered things we dont get here in UK

if you like sushi and your after qaulity...def recommend here
