Great concept - simple buffet style, local food, plentiful choices and good value. Friendly, helpful attendant on the day. Clean, modern facility, nice change from historicity. What's not to like?

This s a place you should visit because of the interior design, it is well worth it for that. The food is ok but not Budapests finest fare.
