Service was a little slow. Food was average both in taste and temperature. We had seafood mains, which was small in portion size too. It's a typical franchise venue.

By far my favorite place to eat in Sofia. They have a great selection of appetizers, entrees, salads, and sushi. All for a very affordable price. The staff is super friendly and very good at their jobs. Overall 10/10 for everything you want in a dining experience.

They have a lot of options in their menu, but the prices are high for what they are offering, i mean the plates are quite small.

There was a lot of things to choose from with cheap prices. Grilled Salmon was amazing. Service differs at different branches i.e Paradise mall branch staff were not very friendly and service was too slow. With this branch it was okay but the branch next to the Seradika station was exceptional. We ended up going there on numerous occasions.

The restaurant is modern, looks like american fast food. We ordered sushi (best seller one) and it was really nice and cheap. The staff was not very friendly, but there is a reason, bacause there are many people waiting to order.

Nice service, clean place, friendly staff. Beatiful ladies serving food and nothing more. Small portions, kinda expensive, theoretically "gourmet" kitchen. Generally, there is nothing more than the will to impress. But their dishes are nothing more than "so and so". Tried it once, I do not think that I will repeat this.

We had a very nice dinner in this place, the food was excellent, they had a huge variety and the prices were so affordable. The only bad thing is the staff. We got there and nobody talked to us for like 5 minutes, even though they had seen us waiting at the door. After we were seated (10 - 15... More

It's not that it is bad, it's just that it's not good at all. The food was not served hot, everything we ordered tasted like pre-prepared and then heated in the microwave. Chewy French fries and cold bread, too salted burger. In addition, the staff is not too enthusiastic about their work.. Would not recommend.

The first restaurant that opened its doors in our capital was Happy Budapest. The restaurant operates from 28th May 2000, and has since pleased its clients with unique Happy specialties, among which authentic Japanese sushi, prepared by our sushi chef. In Happy Budapest you can enjoy the dancing waitresses, serving 220 tables inside and in summer another 60 tables in the garden of the restaurant.
