I love this kind of Slavic food and wasn't disappointed by this place. Cabbage rolls are to die for, as is the goulash. Not a fancy place by any means and off the beaten track. Still, I recommend this restaurant.

Yes, you will get an authentic hungarian food but dont be fooled. We went to Calgary with my husband to celebrate our wedding anniversary and as we have hungarian ancestors we decided to celebrate it in Jonas. When we arrived we've beed told we have to order fast cos the kitchen is closing in 15 mins. So we ordered in... More

Excellent food, will definitely go back next time I'm in Calgary. Tried the chicken paprikash, one of my favorite childhood dishes, and it didn't disappoint. My whole family loved it as well. We also shared a beef stew with egg drop noodle, and it was also wonderful. They close fairly early, so we ordered it to go; kitchen closes at... More

Restaurant is located in downtown Calgary on 6 Ave near 9 Street. It is quite small with many nice and typical Hungarian decorations all over the walls. The Hungarian couple who owns and runs it is very nice and friendly, always ready to help and smile. The food is great! The menu contains typical Hungarian cooking and the portions are... More

Had dinner tonight and it was the best food I've had in a long time. Wonderful crispy pork schnitzel and Mushroom Paprikash with dumplings. OMG!!! Everything was so good and we shared each others dishes. Dessert was 2 light crepes filled with sweetened cottage cheese. A perfect ending to a perfect meal! If you like Eastern European food, check this... More

First let me say I've never been to Hungary but I know that I'd like the food if it's anything like that we had at Jonas. We went for an early supper and we got quick and friendly service. one of our group has been to Hungary and said we got food that was very similar to that in Budapest... More

My first tripadvisor review, couldn't hold it back after my experience tonight. I am in the middle of moving to Calgary from Ottawa and am completely unfamiliar with local restaurants. I was searching for a good restaurant on the net and came across Jonas' at downtown Calgary. Reservation and service was friendly and bilingual (English and Hungarian), food was fantastic.... More

As close to home as it gets. I travel a lot, but when in Calgary I always make a point of dining here. The food, decor and being able to hear and speak Hungarian thrills me to no end. I had the Cucumber salad( Uborka Saláta) Chicken paprikash with homemade noodles. (Csírkepaprikás Nokedlíval) Portions are large and I never think... More

Step into everything Hungarian, and the only authentic Hungarian restaurant in Calgary and be prepared to eat very well. Rozsa, the owner, served us very well and explained our choices. We had the Hungarian Cabbage Rolls (2 very large rolls with smoky pork meat) served with red cabbage sauerkraut, an overflowing plate of Chicken Paprikash and home-made Dumplings (spaetzle) and...

I was in Calgary for one-month job training and I passed this place very often as I go to my office from the apartment. At first the restaurant didn't seem like a good one since it's often closed when I passed it. But I googled it and found that it got very good review in TripAdvisor, so I decided to... More
