First time I ate here. Expensive. 4.600 forints for tortilla soup and quesadilla. The soup was meh, and the quesadilla was terrible. The type of place that figures if they smother everything in cheese, people will like it. But cheese won't cover up mediocre food....They put way too much cheese in the quesadilla and the soup. The cheese was utterly flavourless. They use the cheapest kind of tortilla chips... the kind you buy in the snack aisle at Tesco. Ugh! I won't go here again.More

We went there as a group of 20people to celebrate our graduation from secondary school (in 1993). We had a great time, the food was very tasty, the service excellent and the venue beautiful. Thank you for your kindness and hospitality.

Outside no sun saver, inside no airconditioner. I was burning outside, waiting in the line, for 1800 Huf a burrito. After 10 minutes i gave it up. It is not a streetfood, as they promo it, it is busy, small, slowly restaurant. From 3 minutes...here try the Csibe csida faloda-chicken fast food lunche restaurant!More

Found this gem of a place when I was tired of the typical food in Budapest. Lots of variety and excellent quality. Prices are quite reasonable given the large portions you get. Ghost pepper isn’t for the faint of heart. Lots of vegetarian choices along...with the meat dishes.More

We stop there after seen it at the bus stop; thinking it will be nice to try something different but we got a big surprise: all the food was cold and tasted sickly even the lemonade; the girls at the service were so rude and...not helpful at all and just to make it better the total price was 4800 Forint, after asking for my recipe all I got was hand write total. Stay away!!More

Don’t set your expectations high for Mexican food here or most places in Budapest. My Hungarian family likes this place - it is better than a couple other places in the city. So far that is a pretty low bar as far as I am...concerned. Just give me some decent salsa!More

Nice food for a fast food place, at a decent price. Only us in the resteraunt. Staff assumed that we did not want our change which was annoying.

I like how they mixed traditional Mexican food with the new hipster look. The food is great, the staff was nice. Feels a little bit like Chipotle, only less "frenchisey". The place was clean, and not so crowded on a Friday night thankfully. If there...was anything bad to say about this place I probably don't remember because the unlimited amount and choice of lemonades can make up for anything LOLMore

We came here on high recommendation from various review websites and we are so glad we did! We arrived and got a table and then we viewed the menu which was written on a large chalk board on the wall but unfortunately only in Hungarian...with no English option but the staff were very helpful in helping us decide by showing us the ingredients and dishes in which we decided upon getting the Quesadillas and a Burrito and wow was the food delicious! We hadn't really had proper Mexican food before this but if this is the standard then it's definitely worth it! The prices were very cheap and the food was very good quality and delicious and was cooked from scratch in front of usMore

I was roaming around the Jewish District of Budapest last Sunday when I found this place. It was lunch time so I went inside and ordered a taco. It was set up like a franchise, in that there was an assembly line of sorts, so...I didnt expect much. This was the best taco I ever had. Amazing. Perfect. Later that day I wanted to return for supper but when I googled this pace it showed they were closed. Maybe they are just open for lunch on Sundays. I left Budapest the next day. The staff, as well, were so polite, accomodating, professional, smiling and just lovely. You can sit inside or out. I loved it.More
