Great service, great food, great atmosphere, very fair prices.

Had a beef goulash, dessert (apple pie and chocolate cake), and beer there. The food was awesome, the staff was very helpful and spoke very good English, and the place has a great atmosphere (small, cozy, live music). The little details and touches topped it off for us ... the palinka at the end... read more

This was our last night in Budapest and it it was a treat from start to finish. Very easy to book via the website. A real friendly welcome with a musician playing some some tunes on a cymbalon. The food was very authentic and the portions were very generous. I think they are well used to packing food up for... More

Hungarikum is a very clean and cosy place decorated in a rustic Hungarian style. After reading other reviews on Trip Advisor about how busy it was, we emailed the restaurant and only managed to get a booking with our 3rd choice, our reservation was for 7:30 on Tuesday night and we saw many people turned away as they were now...

The tall guy on the front door is one of the owners and was very pleasant and relaxed. Inside the waitress was informed and friendly and of course the food was excellent.

Great place with lovely atmosphere. We were there to get typical hungarian food and it was not disappointing at all. The food was great and the staff was receptive and pleasant at all times. Great value for money. Highly recommended.

It has a good location, right in city center. We didn't reserve in advance and we were not able to have a table at first, but then the lady in charge arranged 1 table and we had 1 nice dinner there. Food is good, atmosphere is sweet, service is excellent. 12-15 EU for a full set menu

Timi and her partners, were determined to allow diners at this lovely restaurant to experience the food that their Grandmothers used to make. Edit, our waitress, was oustanding, providing me with a very Spicey Chilli from the kitchen, because I told her, I liked the appetizer of Paprika, even the hot one. It was a lovely evening, I was so... More

We thoroughly enjoyed Hungarikum, which was busy even on a quiet Monday evening in early March. The food was delicious and very authentic Hungarian cuisine and the staff extremely welcoming. They have live music most evenings. Do book in advance.

I think overall this was the best restaurant experience I have ever had. The food, simple but delicious, was brilliant throughout and the service was simply exceptional. If I am back in Budapest again. I will certainly be back
