Good value self service restaurant where you can sit down to eat upstairs inside or overlooking the busy market. We had the goulash and a potato/sausage dish, both were excellent in quality and quantity. Friendly and helpful staff, and a live violinist playing. Perfect spot...to rest weary feet, satisfy the appetite and watch the busy comings and goings of the market.More

Traduzione The central market certainly offers different types of cuisine: from classic traditional dishes to real fusion (a bread sandwich with meat inside). We opt for more classic and conventional: Goulash remains the most welcome option for a foreigner visiting Budapest. We remain satisfied even...though the market is very crowded in the middle hours near lunchtime. Affordable for a quick lunchMore

Vibrant atmosphere, very busy, hustle and bustle which make the dining experience great! Lots of dishes to choose from. You pick what you want as you take your tray through. On demand cooking is brought to you at the table so you don't lose time...waiting. Food is accompanied by singers and musicians playing as you eat! This really lifts the spirit! Food quality is excellent, all local "real" Hungarian dishes. Layout of the tables and chairs encourages you to talk to your neighbour - very pleasing!More

Called here and tried the taster menu and would recommend it if you are unfamiliar with Hungarian food. There were musicians playing and that really added to the atmosphere.

Good food, live music, great ambiance, service not so friendly but its mostly self serve. Line moves quick so you better know what you want, favorite dish was rice with goulash and fries. The homemade sasusage and beer were def a must try too.
