It's an ok place.
The food is ok.
It's not as outstanding as many review appear to indicate.
The Hungarian goulash soup was not warm enough.
The duck was a little dry.
The desert was a bit cold.
It was acceptable but certainly not outstanding.

At the time we went it was closed between lunch and dinner, so I decided to wait based on the review I had read... Wow, well worth the wait. Food was amazing and for the price made it even better. The staff were very attentive as well. I had the fired duck which was cooked to perfection, the other dishes were great to. Would highly recommend this restaurant. It is kind of tucked away from the other restaurants on the main strip in city center but that's what makes it cheaper. You will not be disappointed.

We were 4 people who eat in this restaurant. Everybody had the best restaurant experince ever. The food was great and the service was outstanding. To bad we didn't visit this place moret than once. We had to go home. Homely atmosphere. We was served champagne and snaps on the house. I'll defenetly visit this place again, if I go to Budapest one more time. But book a table.......

We wanted to try Hungarikum after reading the rave reviews on TA. Took the tip of making a reservation & managed to atleast get a table for lunch (not easy for 5 adults and 1 baby).
From the start till the end, it was a great experience. The staff is very friendly and helps you with the selection. They give gratis table water, which leaves you with better drinks to spend your money on.
A must try is the Hungarian platter for apetizer. Its a very good mix of cold cuts & spreads with the delicious local bread. The main courses have a sizeable portion and very authetic cooking. We wanted to try the real Goulash (not what is advertised outside every restaurant) and were not disappointed.
They use fresh spices for their cooking and the delicate blend can be tasted in their cuisine. Finally we really needed the complimentary shot of chilled Palinka at the end as a digestiv.

I would highly recommend this to all travelers to Budapest, if you want to get a real taste of Hungarian food. A big thank you to the wonderful staff at Hungarikum for giving us a memorable afternoon.
