We are reopened our Langos Bistro at Arany Janos utca metro station! Retro Langos Bufe: Budapest’s favourite and most authentic langos (hungarian fried dough) and palacsinta (pancake) place in the heart of the city center. We offer gluten free, lactose free and vegan lángos as well. Our first shop at Arany Janos utca metro station became the most popular amongst locals and tourist. From March 2020 we had to move due to the metro construction project. In July 2020 we open the new Retro Langos Budapest Street Food and Bar, just across the street at Bajcsy-Zsilinszky street 25. Here finally you can sit down and have some drinks and enjoy the traditional Hungarian langos and other exciting variations

Clean place (except for the toilet) offering large selection of Langós at reasonable prices. We tried the four cheese, goat cheese and meat bomb. I would suggest keeping to the traditional one (cheese, garlic and sour cream) if you want the authentic Langós feel.

We came to the restaurant and loved the langos options especially for vegetarians and vegans. Sadly, we were rudely harassed by a member of staff called Tommy on 22/11 at 9.30pm who put us down and made fun of things we were saying making us...feel upset and disheartened us from returning. We ordered a spiced rum and he rolled his eyes and yelled 'Its not brown rum!' very sarcastically. As someone who has their own business I would not be happy having him employed at my business which is a shame because the rest of the staff were lovely and accomodating.More

It was a really nice hungarian experience. This will be my favourite lángosozó in Budapest. If you visit Budapest, you have to go to this place.

We stopped there per accident without any review reading before. They have a hughe range of Langos and also very good drinks. And the prizes are very fair even it's located that near the center. A absolutely must if you like that food.

If in Budapest you MUST have Lángos here! Great selection and great taste, cheap and filling. Went here twice within few days. In addition this place has a great selection of Hungarian craft beers.

Amazingly tasty Hungarian street food. Big portions for small price are perfect for running all day tourists. The service was quick, polite and English speaking. The place is vegetarian friendly but you can also find here the propositions for meat lovers. If I ever be...back to Budapest this restaurant is on my must go list for sure. 🇵🇱 Pyszny węgierski street food za rozsądną cenę, idealny dla zabieganego turysty. Obsługa jest szybka ale przy tym bardzo miła. W menu znajdziemy propozycje zarówno dla wegetarian jak i mięsożerców. Zdecydowanie polecam.More

Visited with a group of friends as backpackers. The staff have little control over seating as it is such a busy venue, we were fortunate to spot a clearing table within a few minutes of arrival. The staff appeared to be overwhelmed and sides of...our orders were forgotten, however this was quickly resolved once attention was brought to it, you can not fault them for that. The food was impeccable, piping hot and bursting with flavour. Bartenders were not shying away to poke fun at my group in attendance, five men, ordering a round of cocktails, however no regrets were had as they were also very enjoyable!More

Delicious food and drink at a reasonable price. A must do for anyone visiting Budapest. One of our party was a bit antsy about it but he’s just fussy.

I love them so much to have a gluten free option. Tasty as original one, cheap, quick fast food but typical Hungarian food. Must have if you’re in Budapest.

When we visiter, they did. Remarkably many stores accept credit cards in Budapest which is really great. We actually had a hard time spending our cash.
