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

We went to this place in early october, we had to wait five minutes for a table, but it was definitely worth it. We could enjoy a huge variety of Hungarian dishes: sausage, grilled meat, soups etc. This is an all you can eat place,...guests have to pay for the drinks separately, we tried two out of the house's lemonades (cherry and raspberry), they were really good. I recommend the place to others as well, it is also ridiculously cheap, just 5 euros.More

I was in Budapest with friends and because we were on an organized trip we went to that place. Let me start with saying that the staff is extremely rude especially with people from other countries. The whole restaurant smells so bad and is bad...conditioned. Talking about the food I honestly think I’ve never eaten anything that bad. The food was bad cooked and most important was really bad conserved because there was nothing above the buffet that prevents things to drop in the food. The whole hygenical conditions were so bad I noticed the chef licking his gloves while cooking our food. my advice is to AVOID this place, unless you want to risk your stomach to be intoxicated (cause this has happened to half of my group).More

First of all i would like people to consider the buffet price, 4 euros, what can you get for 4 euros??? Not even a big mac. For this kind of price the food is fantastic period. I saw some people are complaining about the service.........i...never have any problem with this side of the business, they are very busy which is a good sign for fresh food, when I go there i basically don’t use the waiter except for a glass of water or a beer and never had any problem whatsoever. I will recommend it anytime and i will go there next time I will be in Budapest, if you don’t like it i can recommend Trofea but it is not in the same category......4/5 euros vs 24 eurosMore

As we waited to be seated the staff was quite rude, did not explain why they have so many empty tables but still won´t let us in. When we finally got to one of the tables, everything was fine. There were many options to choose...from, although some meals did not look tempting, but there was always something else. For this price I did not expect much, but the food was actually quite tasty. I recommend the fruit soups. Really made my day.More

Very poor service and the food is of low standard, had to wait over 30 minutes on drinks order. There was no air conditioning. Would advise going anywhere else
