I live in Budapest and like hookah much. I go there several times a week, the waitresses are very nice, the drinks and food are excellent, and I can say without doubt that the hookah there is the best in the city. I can only encourage everybody who wants to have a nice dinner or some smoke with friends to... More

This is a place I have been to multiple times, with mixed results. The place is nicely located, with good shishas, slightly expensive. On the last occasion, I was there on a Monday afternoon, with just 2 people sitting on the (nice) terrace when we arrived. The blond waitress came to our table, with a large amount of disinterest, as... More

Although, we had no issues during our visit, when we received the bill the waiter told us that there will be an additional 10% service charge that is not... More

The place is located on a very cute strip along with tons of other cafe/bar/restaurants. One of the hostess that works there was super nice. She even speaks Farsi... More

I had an anniversary dinner with my wife. Food was ok, service was friendly, belly dancers were a nice touch. Then when we asked for the bill, the waiter brought us a piece of paper without a list of what we consumed and how much they cost. The bill jus had a final number. When we asked for the detailed...
