I came to this restaurant for several days successively. The tea is quite good and not too expensive. On my fourth visit, I broke the lid of an ugly machine made teapot. The waiters were rude and kept me waiting while they spoke with the owner, and then insisted that we replace the lid, which cost more than twice the price of the meal, according to them. They did not, however, provide a replacement lid during the meal.

The venue is lovely, completely relaxing. Everything is set just right for you to have an amazing tea experience. They have a huge selection of teas to please any kind of tea drinker and the staff is friendly enough to give you tips on what to order. I went there twice and spend around 4000 ft(14 euro)for 2 persons. Having tea for 2, oniguiris and cheesecakes. This is a must If you like tea or trying out new things.

Visitors to Budapest are likely to give this place a miss because they didn't come to Budapest to frequent an authentic Japanese team room run by dedicated, perfectionist Hungarian owners. And yet that would be a mistake. This place is a little gem. You don't find many places like it in any other European capitals. They serve small, delicious treats and an incredible selection of Japanese teas. Well worth a visit. A hope they develop a loyal clientele since I intend to visit when I'm back in Budapest.

The place has an excellent choice of teas and tea-based desserts, as well as a variety of Onigiris to turn a tea break into a full meal. The service is great, staff speaks fluent English and is very helpful. A perfect place for those looking for a serene oasis in the very center of a bustling city!
