Met some family there for my sister's birthday dinner. We had the three course special they had on and have no complaints. The service was fast and courteous. The meal was excellent and liked that they had some live music playing. Highly recommend if you want to have some authentic Hungarian food.

Loved the ambience created by the floor to ceiling, red, velvet curtains which divide the tables for two. We could look out at the piano player yet felt we had our own intimate dining space . We couldn't decide on an entrée so we ordered the Celebration Platter which offered a taste of many different things! The platter portions were... More

Great place to go for authentic Hungarian food. Goulash is excellent. Prices are very reasonable and service is very friendly and prompt. Live music also makes your meal that much more enjoyable...just don't forget to tip the piano player!

My dinner tonight (Goulash, Stroganoff, Cabbage Roll) + Cabbage Soup and Cherry Strudel was better than any in eleven (11) countries (including Hungary) in the past year. They're celebrating their 60th anniversary this weekend and they have a bright future ahead if they continue to serve food like this! I can't wait to return.

This is a nice restaurant one can get to feel away from North America. It is has a real nice ambience and the seating and furniture gives the air of older times in Europe. The place is decorate with posters and flags from Hungary too. Second best is the service. The lady there is really nice and attentive, and enjoys... More

Went to London to take a friend for cancer treatment at Victoria Hospital. Takes you back to a good old European dining experience. Make it a stop sometime.

Ordered the wiener schnitzel for takeout on a cold winter night and was completely amazed. Food was ready in less than 10 minutes for pickup and the food was absolutely delicious. The service (even though I was there for only five minutes) was warm and welcoming. Schnitzel is lightly breaded, crispy, and juicy and was served with some pickled cabbage... More

My husband, sister and I went out for lunch yesterday. My sister and I each had a Hungarian platter and my husband had a Budapest platter. It's a lot of food for $20/plate. The schnitzel was too notch as well as the spaetzle. It's true Hungarian originality. The service was prompt and accurate. We also requested a ice cream wrapped... More

Third visit this year and as always the staff were friendly and welcoming. This time they had a special four course meal for $25 which was good value. The best in town cabbage soup was delicious and served piping hot, but our main courses were a bit cold especially the dumplings. Marika was there supervising and happy to greet her... More
