We were hungry so we visited the first place near the Heroes square. The value for what you get is not worth it, subpar sandwiches and "pies". The service is also a bit slow.

This is a lovely Turkish cafe that serves some nice food at very reasonable prices. We sat outside under the canopy just as it started to rain. It is a lovely location with views of the square and close to the metro station. Staff were very pleasant and friendly.

Nice and cold draft beers on the terrasse. Or a hungarian wine if preferred. On a warm day in Budapest a nice place to sit and relax for a drink or two.

We re with my friend. The stuff exceptional friendly, lovely. The hummus was ok, not special. But the place and the atmosphere is very intimate, sure I go there again.

We visited this place with little kids after long morning at the central park. Service was super-nice and the kids even got extra treats! I enjoyed tasty baklava and the lovely atmosphere. Easy-to-get and close to the park and metro station.

Hummus is delicious. We stopped on our way to the baths and museums. We weren't sure and made a loop before circling back and I am glad we did. Good prices too.

When you come here and go to the second flour, they will tell you to go downstairs (you, mot*****ker), because there is a vip-clup upstairs. With awful hookahs, no music at all, very bright lights inside and no service.

Stopped here for a coffee and bite to eat before entering City Park and Hero's Square. Good was impressive and so was the service. Would highly recommend.

We visited this place twice. There is an outdoor area where they smoke shisha and serve drinks and food. We also had something to eat inside. Food was very good and a very reasonable price. Right across the street from heroes Square.
