Sziastok ! As a former Budapest resident, I'm glad to advise you a very cool place, nice restaurant, quite cheap, really good and a perfect starter for a hot evening.

It's a buffet style restaurant, eat as much as you like, though the emphasis is rather on quantity than quality, however it's really cheap (slightly more on weekends) and the drink prices are very reasonable too

Located just up from Square Oktogon is this all you can eat eatery, get there early as the it gets very very busy, no wonder it is excellent value, the service can be a little so so, however, the vast selection and quality, makes up...for that. our favourite is the pizza bar, and the grilled meat section, the drinks are a good price as well. Definitely worth a visit a least once we went 6 times.More

Unprofessional staff. It would be great if staff would know about allergies and intolerences... We wanted to know about the ingredients and no staff knows the answer and they just made fun of the fact that we wanted to know what are the ingredients in...the food so we dont get allergy attack....More

Very badic restaurant only to satisfu your hunger. Rational prices for a variety of dishes however, mediocre quality of food. I'd recommend it only as an inexpensive eatery...

Prices are between 1700 - 2000 HUF. Food is fresh prepared and tables are always full. You eat as many as you can. Recommeded to visit after long sightseeing. Drinks aren’t included.

We basically didn't eat anything. The buffet is very poor, the meat they cooked for us was tastless and burnt. The service was ok. We left and had to eat in another place. Hope you'll improve. good luck.

We stopped by because we could cross street because Turkish prime minister was coming through. Could order food, desert, because it’s buffett pricing for all. So had drinks, enjoyed atmosphere, nice service. Really was hopping, so assume people enjoy

Casually eating my dinner on another table with a group of friends, when I hear foul and disgusting language coming out of the chef's mouth towards a group of young girls who looked to be on holiday. Food is average, half of our food definitely...came fresh... out of the microwave! So if you want some horrible language with your freshly reheated dinner then bt all means come on down to the Bistro! Will not be coming here again.More
