“Very very very good steak worth the price”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Knrdy or konrady is along with prime the best steakhouse in budapest and probably top notch internationally, as one would expect the restaurant is quite pricey with steaks starting from ~9k huf.

Apart from great steaks they offer very nice service, good wine selection and really good starters. Well worth a visit for anyone but a must if you are a steak lover. I will definetly return

“The best filet mignon of my life”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Place is absolutely great. Nice decoration like in New York. Staff very professional and helpfull.
Starter tuna tartar was great, filet mignon was exceptional and melting in the mouth, cheese cake was excellent, tulipan cuvée wine was gorgeous. Now, it is quite expensive, but I guess quality has a price.

“Steaks galore and attentive service.”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

We had a meal here on our last night in Budapest as a final blow out. We'd booked it after accidentally passing it whilst sight -seeing on our first day and after previously seeing it on Trip Advisor. But we almost didn't end up going.

A few hours before our booking I was relaxing at the hotel and decided to browse some of the TA reviews - to be honest, I was very nearly put off by some 'scaremongering' about the prices - one reviewer talked of paying $100 for a steak! We were expecting it to be the priciest meal of our trip but not that much!

Anyway, we went and were given a decent table next to the window and the atmosphere seemed very cool and stylish. The waiter was very helpful, explaining all the different steak options - of which there are many - and accompanying wines. It is fair to say that they do try and 'up sell' to get you to spend more but not in an aggressive way. The meal was very good and surprisingly the portions were larger than expected - my wife and I could easily have shared the potatoes and veg rather than having a portion each, and the steak was very substantial too. The waiter was constantly on hand to pour wine and ask if everything was okay, despite being very busy with other tables.

The final bill was expensive, especially for Budapest - and compared with our other evening meals that week - but it was very good, although not the best I've ever had.

One note of caution... if you go midweek, as we did, you might well be sitting in a room full of businessmen. When we were at KNRDY, about half the room was taken up by 2 long tables full of work colleagues who were constantly standing up, moving around and standing outside smoking.

Clearly, this place has a burgeoning reputation and is probably 'the latest place' for businesses to treat their clients so I suspect this will happen quite a lot during the week. It didn't spoil the evening, but it certainly didn't add to it.

So if you want a really good night and don't mind the expense, this is a good place to try.

“Very Good. Very Expensive.”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

We went expecting great things. The food was excellent, we all had different types of steaks and all cooked to differing styles i.e. rare/medium etc and everything was perfect. The food was plentiful and everything that we had was of the highest order. The service we received was excellent, the staff were extremely pleasant, knowledgeable and not overly intrusive.

While we did not skimp in any department we certainly did not pick the most expensive things on the menu. We knew to expect a hefty bill and we were not disappointed at HUF134,000 (about £430, or the best part of £90 a head). This included a hefty 12% service charge, it was on the menu and they did not state that it was optional. When the waitress came with the bill she said "this is just a pro-forma" and to be honest we had no idea what on earth a pro-forma bill was but just paid up and they seemed OK with what we had given.

The food was excellent but we would not expect to pay £90 a head for what is basically steak and chips in the UK. It was WAY overpriced, particularly as the cost of living is much less than at home. We thought we had all had a good meal and good service but also we had had our pockets picked but as long as punters are prepared to pay I am sure they will continue to overcharge.

Zoltan K, Owner at KNRDY American Steakhouse & Bar, responded to this review, March 18, 2013
Dear Sir,

First of all thank you for visiting our restaurant and for taking time to write a review about it.
I am glad that you were satisfied with the food and service at KNRDY.
Let me explain why you pay more here, than at an average "steak and chips" place in the UK.
Our meats are USDA Prime cuts from Kansas USA, Omaha cuts from Nebraska USA and 9+ Wagyu steaks from Australia. Not many steak restaurants in the UK or in Europe has this kind of selection of quality meats. We do not overprice our meats, their price are based on their quality and have nothing to do with the cost of living in Budapest. We have our menu outside the restaurant so you were able to decide whether or not you want to dine with us. Pro-Forma invoice is given to client to help choosing method of payment, cash or credit card. 12% service charge is not optional, it is added to every bill.

Best,

Zoltan Konrady

“Best steak ever!”
Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

Myself and 7 friends visited here as part of my stag-do celebrations in Budapest. Quotes from the boys were "best steaks ever", "best meal I've had".
The attentive service was excellent and I'm sure if any of us visit Budapest again then a trip back here will be high up on the agenda.
