We went at 10.20 in the restaurant and the woman in front informed us that the kitchen closes at 11 but we could stay until 12 if we would like. At 10.50 the waiter asked us to pay while we were still eating, at 11...they turned the music off and started the closing process and low key kicking us out with their way of looking and talking to us. The food was nice and the prices reasonable but the service was really terrible and kinda lied to us about the closing time because if they had informed us thay they would be closing at 11 we wouldn't have sat there.More

Whilst in budapest we thought we would try some traditional Hungarian food - With some many restaurants to pick from your spoilt for choice. But we really enjoyed our vist to Hungarian Hell kitchen we was greeted by friendly staff who described the food on...the menu and gave us advice on what to pick and we was not disappointed at all - We had goulash in bread and sausage stew which was really nice - there was a band playing live music in the background to add to the atmosphere - The deserts are like grandmas homemade cooking leaving you wanting more.More

We have been there for eating goulash,we chose a bottle of redwine,after we asked them to bring another bottle the same as we orderd before but they brought another bottle which was really expensive and they charged us 17,000ft for that bottle of wine that...we didnt ask for!!just be careful and try to specify which wine or other drinks you are asking them to bring!what we experience was like a fraud and we didnt like this behavior of them as well!!More

Just an unpleasant experience - indifferent waiting staff - although maitre D was quite friendly - food was bland - I had the gypsy pork - a dry old piece of meat that had had garlic waved near it - I didn't eat it -...but it wasn't questioned - I will say the bread was nice! I hate to leave bad reviews but this was horribleMore

As a Canadian living in Budapest, I used to be a big fan of this place and eat here often. It used to be one of my favourite restaraunts that I would recommend to everyone. Now that Mark, the previous manager, and Enikő have left...(for obvious reasons), they treat customers very badly. We visited here the other day and noticed the service had gone down hill, but I thought maybe it was just an off day. So last night I came back with my wife and the place was practically empty. Our server was rude and refused to seat us at our favorite table by the door and said that it might get busy and ignored us. We ended up walking out and couldn't be bothered. Until the new staff learns some customer service skills it should be AVOIDED AT ALL COSTS. You can find much better Hungarian restaraunts ANYWHERE in Budapest!!More

We tried Hell's Kitchen on our last night and wished we had found it sooner. Great range of traditional Hungarian food, all extremely well priced. I had the catfish soup and stuffed cabbage, my wife had the camembert and walnut crumb, followed by duck leg....It was all excellent. The setting felt authentic and the service was good, if a little hurried, but they were extremely busy and this didn't affect our enjoyment. Will definitely return!More

We had dinner here our first night in Budapest. We had the chicken paprikash and the beef stew, both with gnocchi. The food was brought to our table almost immediately, probably because these are both cooked in large batches (as they require slow and low...cooking). The food was good, service was good, but the ambiance was a little sterile and really aimed to tourists. Nothing wrong with this place at all, but there are better places to eat in Budapest. However, this was a good value for the money and is great for backpackers or others on a budget.More

Service was fabulous, food authentic, presentation lovely. Great way to try a variety of Hungarian Cuisines and the price is compatible to other restaurants of lesser quality! ! Menu is translated to cover many different languages.
