The place looks like a hungarian socialist nightmare with the trofee onthe wall, but the painting on the ceileing is quit impressive during when you wait for the dishes. The ramen was awful, the noodles and the base of the soup was terribe. Only the fired buns were good, still overpriced.

I like their authentic dim sums (shrimp) and vegetable sides more than the ramen soups. Good service, good for groups but go with a booking beforehand.

The restaurant is in the same location as mentioned on trip advisor, EXCEPT it has a new name " Momotaro etterem" . We ordered many dumpling dishes because we don't get good quality ones in our part of the world . In fact we ordered 6 different varieties and did not realize some of them were big ones and 8...

Have been eating there several times, and noodles are the best. Amazing food, kind service and free green tea. One of my favourite place to eat :)

Never disappoints. Great choice of ramen. Our favorite is Momotaro beef and special translucent noodles. Recommendation.

This definitely a Chinese restaurant with ramen (not a bad thing!) So the broth is a lot lighter than traditional ramen. I tried ordering some veggie dumplings but they had ran out of both kinds.

Don't be misled by the restaurant name. Momotaro serves delicious and expertly prepared Chinese food, probably the best I've had in Hungary. Not cheap, but worth it. The whole fish was amazing, as was everything else. English speaking wait staff makes ordering easy for non-Hungarian / non-Chinese speakers. I've seen several Chinese people eating here, so it must be good!... More

The restaurant occupied the place of a former Hungarian restaurant. The main problem is that the outdated Hunting decor was not touched at all. The interior is dark & old, very distasteful. The food is exactly the opposite: always fresh, with good quality ingredients. Try the specialities: the momo, ramen and the sweets. These really reflect the original flavors. Chinese... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
