I found this restaurant walking around randomly with my partner. But for sure it's been one of our best experiences in a "low-cost" (which doesn't mean poor quality) restaurant. We ordered noodles with chicken (nothing special, but I enjoyed them a lot), coconut soup (shout out to this soup, really really good and tasty) and a pink salmon with avocado... More

Location. Teréz Körút being one of the most crowded streets in Budapest offers a huge variety of different spots - from cheap bars with low prices for vodka and cocktails, Turkish kebab houses to luxurious restaurants and cafes for hipsters. This spot is located near the train station and not bar from Blaha Lujza Ter underground. About. I found out... More

It's rare that I give bad reviews for anything but today I will make an exception. I've been here twice and can wholeheartedly say that the service here is horrible, the food is of average quality and the portion sizes are far less than unacceptable. To add insult to injury the prices are far too expensive for what you get.... More

Decent prices, decent food. Portions are good sized. Nothing special, really. Just your ordinary Hungarian restaurant. But not bad!

Excellent service and food. Bit over priced but not that bad. We had assorted sushi plates with champagne and had good experience and enjoyed.

We originally came for drinks but decided to purchase the sushi as well. The gentleman at the counter was rude he just said no to everything that we asked. Possibly lost in translation, but the hostess immediately seated us and the experience was nothing less than pleasant from there. We really enjoyed our experience.

Where do I begin. While waiting to be served I noticed that at the table next to us people were given forks for their sushi. Face palm. Also having run out of avocado the chef decided to fill their sushi with asparagus. After getting our starters I noticed the waiter walking around with my sushi confused with whose order it... More
