Cute waitress!

The cute middle-aged waitress who served us recommended us to try this Goose leg dish that was served with fasola bean spread. Really good and filling! The ambiance of the eatery is really honest and humble. Extremely love that rustic and homey feeling it gave me. Pretty popular amongst locals too... read more

We ate here for lunch and weren't disappointed! The food was authentic and so delicious! The waitress was brilliant explaining the parts of menu not in English and very helpful. The pork stew and dumplings were so delicious and the other pork and cabbage with potato meal was yummy too. Two main meals, two diet cokes and some bread came... More

„I’m going to have lunch at Kádár’s!” was kind of a joke in the 70’s and 80’s of the last century, with alluding to the almighty first secretary of the communist party, whose name was also Kádár, although had nothing to do with the legendary eatery. The funny thing is that the current owner is called Orbán, just as the... More

One of the few restaurants that did not change in the past 30 years. The owner is the same, the interior is the same and the quality is the same. Small and absolutely not a peacock place where you meet the same Jewish families every Saturday. Sólet (Cholent ) is comparable with the one made by your grandma, simply the... More

This place isn't just trying to be authentic '80s style Hungarian cuisine. It just refused to change for 30 or more years. Everything from what you eat, how the place looks, what the waitresses wear and how you pay, is EXACTLY as it happened in good old socialist times. I am not saying the food is awesome, or the decoration... More

No nonsense Hungarian food with charming older staff make this an affordable unpretentious 'restaurant' to eat affordable, unpretentious food. More importantly the food is healthy, hearty homemade goodness available at an accessible price for everyone. A must try.

We tracked down Kadar Etkezde after reading on Trip Advisor about cheap places to eat in Budapest. Although they had an English menu ,our waitress helpfully translated the Hungarian menu to give us a quick language lesson. The food was great and cheap. You pay the waitress her tip after the meal and the food is paid for to the... More

We didn't have a large lunch so I can't comment on that, but if we had come hungrier I think we would have enjoyed much more. The plates looked yummy. The place was a gem. We came at lunchtime, every table was full, and it was buzzing. Very pleasant place, large menu, low prices. I noticed that while there were... More

I heard good things about retro Kádár eatery and I always wanted to try their cholent. Went there with a friend, waited for a table, place was full. We sat down and found out that they just ran out of cholent at 13:40. Was very disappointed. I went for a soup which was nothing special just average, then my main... More

One of best meals I had in Budapest. We've visited this place twice cause it was worth coming back to. They serve delicious Hungarian dishes and what's most important - this place is perfect for tourists. The menu has pictures of dishes so you don't have to wonder what is it you're ordering - all is there on the pictures.... More
