I would like to thank Réka for being so hospitable during our visit. She took a really good care of us. She was being friendly and professional throughout the night. Whatever we needed she was there for us. I’m hoping to see her again as...a manager perhaps, she has so much more in her . Thank you Réka for having us!More

Had a pretty good time at this restaurant which was recommended by a friend of a friend as having a cool atmosphere! Which it has... and make sure you go check out the hidden ‘club’ downstairs. However. The food was very average and the service...was honestly very poor. We were a very large group (18 people) so understandably we waited a while for everything.. taking our drink order... serving our drinks.. (we were not allowed to order food until all our drinks had been served lol).. ordering the food and getting the food! Literally almost 2 hours went by between our arrival (which was quite late already - 9pm) and food arriving at the table - nearly 11 pm! And unfortunately - it wasn’t the best. I quite liked my dish - pork belly bao buns. So can recommend those. But those who attempted some more Hungarian specialities - the beef goulash or the chicken paprikash - were honestly super disappointed. Cocktails however, to end on a more positive note, were suuuuper nice! So at least we had a few very nice drinks! Location is also great as it is in the heart of the nightlife entertainment district, on a pedestrian road, which is a must see in Budapest!More

In a popular street full of similar places, this restaurant probably doesn’t have to try too hard, and it shows. Gave us two menus then when we tried to order it turned out that one of them was unavailable lunchtime. Two pizzas not great, and...overpriced. Would advise anyone to go round the corner to BB’z where they actually care that you are there and don’t have birds flying around indoors.More

BEER: If you enjoy craft beer this is the place to come. Wide variety of local ales. Especially liked the IPAs. FOOD: The food was decent. SERVICE: The service was dismissive. You might have better luck with that.

Really disappointed with all aspects of dinner service. Food portions small, 3 pieces of meat in Goulash Soup. Burger bun was slightly stale, sea bream special was 1 piece of fish, very small. 3 plates cleared from table before all had finished, leaving last diner...feeling conscious. Restaurant is not busy so therefore really poor training of staff which shows poor management. Would not recommend eating hereMore

We called in for a drink and snack after visiting the awe inspiring Jewish quarter. The beer and the large plate of nachos were brilliant. Excellent atmosphere.
