Where the wine list offers numerous special selections exclusively to our establishment. Where service means painstaking attention to courtesy in every detail... Where the artistically carved and gilded wooden interior plays an integral part in the concept, that will make your evening an unforgettable experience. Have our efforts been crowned with success? Come and see yourself! We will be expecting you!

“Wonderful dinner at the end of our Christmas Market Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Dinner at Aszu was superb. Our wait staff was very attentive and and quite helpful in answering all of our questions about the menu. The wild boar that we both had was delicious as was the mushroom soup that I had for an appetizer. Everything about our evening at Aszu was wonderful down to the doorman who offered to take our pictures in front of the restaurant as we left. Our evening at Aszu was at the end of our Christmas Market Cruise and extension in Budapest and was a perfect end to our fabulous trip.

“Thankyou Santa!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Our group of 4 enjoyed a wonderful Christmas lunch experience at Aszu. Beautiful interior, very attentive staff, waitress had excellent wine knowledge and helped us choose our way through 5 bottles of wonderful Hungarian wine, and last but not least… the food, interesting and innovative. The portion sizes for our long lazy 5 course lunch were just right.
We lingered over our lunch for 5 hours, and this was perfectly fine with the staff, even once the restaurant started to quickly fill with dinner guests. ASZU was the highlight of our Budapest eating choices.

“ok food, nothing special, bad service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Nouvelle cuisine with prefabricated desserts. OK food, small portions.

The responsible waiter is changing all the times, no assignments to tables or tasks, as I could tell.

Dear Roman or Competitor Restaurant,

This review was first posted on July 13th, one and a half month after our opening. We have reported our problem with the originalility and irrelevancy of your review on the very next day. Thanks for the correction and professionality of the TripAdvisor team, your review was succesfully removed from our page. Long after this, before Christmas, you have corrected some details, and have reposted here. Interesting that first time you gave average, this time you have given poor. Of course we have reported our problem again, and the TripAdvisor team removed your "kind" review again, with irrelevancy. The very next day, you posted it again, changing some of your words... I hope you will understand, that we don't want to react to your feedback, as it can't be taken as an original experience of yours. We know everyone has to take a sum of his own conscience, I personally hope that once, you will do the same. We are going to continue our hard work, with doing our best, in this small family business of ours, and we strongly believe, that all of this hard work will be rewarded with happy and satisfied guest. This is our aim, nothing more.

With kind regards,
Anita Sipeki

“Christmas Eve in Budapest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

My husband and I did a Christmas market cruise on the Danube River that ended in Budapest, where we stayed a few extra days before flying back to the U.S. After we had booked our flights, we learned that much of Budapest is "closed" on Christmas Eve, including restaurants. Given that December 24 is also my husband's birthday, I started researching restaurants and emailing about December 24 hours. Aszu Etterem responded that they would be open and even asked if we were celebrating a special occasion. It turned out to be the perfect choice. The restaurant is gorgeous, the food was delicious, the service was top notch, and at the end of the meal (after ordering and consuming our desserts), my hustand and I were given a third dessert, complete with a birthday candle.

“Perfect Christmas dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is not cheap, but then again isn't the food either. From starter to after dinner wine it was very good. Even though we did not have a reservation they managed to squeeze us in.
Service was polite. Always there when needed. Before dinner there was some greeting from the kitchen. The courses followed each other very fluently.
If you fancy a nice dinner, this isa place to have it.
