Great kitchen, daily menu will never let you leave the place hungry. A place with tradition, that keeps it's charm.

Eating at Kadar etkezde (eatery) is like stepping back in time to traditional Hungarian eating. Very traditional meals and only open for lunch. The meat soup was really delicious and the chicken and mashed potatoes was a truly home-cooked. Service excellent. Place was really crowded. Some hints: you need to tell the manager what you ate, including how many pieces... More

The atmosphere of the restaurant seemed genuinely authentic rather than pretending to be - it was one of the most real-seeming places we went. The decor looked like it had been unchanged for decades, with simple plastic table cloths (as you can see in the photos from other people), and all sorts of photos stuck up on the wall. Unlike...

Delicious food in great atmosphere. The restaurant is small but homely. After some reviews we decided to visit Kadar for lunch. Weren't disappointed. The waitress had some English and suggested a couple of dishes, which we took. Really good. Do try the hot paprika paste to accompany the dishes...so good! You will feel you are in Hungary. Look at a... More

This bustling restaurant serves up fantastic filling dishes at very reasonable prices. I had my first ever matzah ball soup which was fantastic! I don't know much about Hungary but this restaurant certainly felt very authentic to me. Our waitress was very nice and dealt well with the language barrier.

This is a restaurant, which resembles me my childhood. The interior, the famous checkered cloth, the gastronomy the soda water and strawberry syrup all resemble the 60's and 70's in an unaltered form. Friendliness of the personal is the same when Budapest was not overrun ...

If you want an authentic Hungarian meal that is focused on your enjoyment of the meal and not how money can be extracted from tourists (or locals for that matter) then try this restaurant. It's small and it is not going to be a gourmet experience. It will, however, give you a great sense of local foods. The staff was... More

Three words to describe this place: simple, affordable, and typical. This place being typically Hungarian, we were a bit lost at first but the waitress was very helpful and we ended eating local dishes. Both the soup and mains were delicious but we were a bit less convinced by the deserts (but this is just a matter of personal taste!)

Wanted to have a go at Hungarian food and found this restaurant to be highly recommended as a local hang out place. It is a small restaurant with the feeling of home. The walls of the interior were decorated with pictures of famous people signed to the restaurant so I figure this place has been around for quite a while.... More
