“Delicious and simple food”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

The atmosphere of the restaurant seemed genuinely authentic rather than pretending to be - it was one of the most real-seeming places we went. The decor looked like it had been unchanged for decades, with simple plastic table cloths (as you can see in the photos from other people), and all sorts of photos stuck up on the wall. Unlike most other places the staff spoke very little English and presented the translations to us in a mix of English, French and German, which was OK! An oddity which I've not seen anywhere else was soda water dispensers on the table. The food, which was mainly of the traditional Hungarian type, was simple and of the kind that would probably be described as 'home-made'. It was very, very tasty. What more is there to say? It's a worthwhile place to eat.

“Tasty meals.”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Delicious food in great atmosphere. The restaurant is small but homely. After some reviews we decided to visit Kadar for lunch. Weren't disappointed. The waitress had some English and suggested a couple of dishes, which we took. Really good. Do try the hot paprika paste to accompany the dishes...so good! You will feel you are in Hungary.
Look at a photo of the facade before you go as it is easy to miss it.
Go for lunch. They are closed in the evenings.

“Delicious food in a homely atmosphere”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

This bustling restaurant serves up fantastic filling dishes at very reasonable prices. I had my first ever matzah ball soup which was fantastic! I don't know much about Hungary but this restaurant certainly felt very authentic to me. Our waitress was very nice and dealt well with the language barrier.

“a hidden gem of perfect home-kitchen”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

it was like a time travel - straight into the kitchen of my Hungarian (great cook) granny. the same delicious smells, the atmosphere - it was so delicious and served so lovingly - we wanted to go kiss the cook when we were done. they were even kind enough to prepare for us (3 sisters) a specific dish that our grandmother used to prepare, especially for the following day.
great food and the best hospitality we have seen here.
love you, Kadar!

“Memories of the childhood”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

This is a restaurant, which resembles me my childhood. The interior, the famous checkered cloth, the gastronomy the soda water and strawberry syrup all resemble the 60's and 70's in an unaltered form. Friendliness of the personal is the same when Budapest was not overrun ...
