We went to this reastaurant for shisha and drinks. The shisha was good, but not the best in Budapest, however the mint tea was not hot enough!! It is unacceptable because tea should be very hot. the waitress looked bored and not friendly, it was not the best athmosphere you would like in a restaurant like this. The place is... More

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

We visited Shiraz couple of weeks ago with some friends. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the potential to be a gem in the city, located in the city centre. 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

During my last trip to Eastern European countries I visited Budapest, and I decided to try one of the Persian restaurants during my stay there. I was introduced to Shiraz Restaurant. 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
