Ordered the personalised pad Thai but don't really taste like the authentic pad Thai.. taste like noodles with soy sauce instead. Costed around 1500ft with 100ft for take away.

We had a tom yum soup and fried rice. The dishes were very good and fresh really reminded us the food we had in South East Asia. Highly recommendable place!

This place is right on the street and it catches your eye. Nice Decorations and friendly staff. They speak English and helped me figure out a vegetarian option. Quick service and good food. It was a good helping too. Lots of place to sit inside. Free WiFi added to the experience.

Decided to go here just for a quick bite before returning to the place we where staying. I really fancied sushi so I ordered salmon sashimi and tuna and shrimp maki. The sashimi was tasteless and the maki too didn't taste like anything. Was very disappointed since it looked so good. Would like to revisit and give it a second... More

We've been coming here for lunch for the last few summers and I've never been disappointed. The stir fry noodle dishes are fabulous.

Ordered onion baghees which resembled soggy onion rings. Chicken Tikka Masala was the correct colour but had no flavour other than curry powder. Food tasted bland and uninteresting.

I got there for a quick lunch with a friend of mine by chance. I was very positively surprised. Place is decorated very nicely in a modern way. The navigation over the menu is very easy (which is not the case in case of many restaurants with asian food). The food is prepared for you out of fresh ingredients. I... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
