Description: What can you expect at Aszu? We strive to be what we set out to be: a purveyor of modern cuisine that understands it's sources, while gazing out from Tokaj upon the world. Where the wine list offers numerous special selections exclusively to our establishment. Where service means painstaking attention to courtesy in every detail... Where the artistically carved and gilded wooden interior plays an integral part in the concept, that will make your evening an unforgettable experience. Have our efforts been crowned with success? Come and see yourself! We will be expecting you!

“A Total Delight”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Located on a street with lots of competition for your dining Forints Aszu is at the top of the list. It is simply a wonderful experience with great food, service and wine list. If I could have a last meal somewhere my current pick would be Aszu. Two of our group ordered the Chicken breast with gratinated cauliflower and bacon and pronounced it the best chicken they had ever had. The lamb shoulder was over the top good as was the wild boar cheek. We had many other items as well and every dish was perfect. There is a super wine list here. If you are not familiar with Hungarian wine now is the time. They will be happy to guide you but here is a tip. On the red side spend some time with Cabernet Franc. If you know this grape only as a blending fruit you will be more than happy that the Hungarians let it stand alone. Reservations are a must.

“great for whole family”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

A more contemporary restaurant than many in budapest with excellent food,wine and service.Traditional Hungarian recipes served with a twist. The Boer was the best I have ever tasted but my vegan daughter and younger children were all equally extremely happy.

“Nice meal, lovely wine, in central Budapest”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

I was highly recommended the Aszu by a taxi driver who collected me from the Liszt Ferenc airport and I was not disappointed. Set in modern surroundings, I was offered a complimentary veal carpaccio and some lovely warm bread, and ordered a superb glass of furmint wine recommended by my waiter. The main dish I chose was Ox Goulash- I felt the portion size could have been bigger. But overall very pleased with the Aszu Etterem.

Reviewed October 13, 2013

Very pretty restaurant with great ambiance a nice wait staff. The waiter recommended a very good local wine (Tokaji). The food was very good (interestingly that so many restaurants in Budapest serve amuse bouche). It was reasonably priced as well

“Super food, great service”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

A relatively new restaurant on the Budapest scene. We had a first class meal, for a very reasonable price. The spring pea soup and the wild boar cheeks were excellent. Great wine list. It was our 23rd wedding anniversary and they brought us out two glasses of wine and dessert.
