We decided to try this place after reading rave reviews about it, so we assume something has changed in the meantime (new owner?). Not very good value for money, as the food (both from the menu and in the self-service bbq area) seems to be pretty average to low quality and the service is not the friendliest. They expect tip, but frankly the amount they charge is more than enough to cover the poor service. The all-you-can-drink option (though not including spirits and cocktails) is a plus.

We decided to visit the Mongolian Barbeque based upon a friend's visit, and was definitely not disappointed. Tucked away in a discreet location within Budapest, the Mongolian Barbeque offered the perfect blend of a great variety of food, and an excellent level of service.

Seated in the tree-covered outside dining courtyard, we had splendid views of the fountain, night sky, and all while still able to hear the distant bustle of City life. The all-you-can-eat and all-you-can-drink price of 5000ft per person (approx £14, as of 11th May 2012) is probably the most attractive aspect of this restaurant, and includes the largest selection of food and drinks that I can recall for any such type of similar establishment. All of the staff were completely charming, and did everything possible to maintain a very high level of service. We was greeted and shown to our table by the manager, who was even kind enough to order us a taxi back to our hotel, and waited outside and chatted with us while the driver was en-route.

This is probably my favourite restaurant in Budapest. I always try to visit this place whenever I am in Budapest. Wonderful atmosphere and lots of choises in this 'all you can eat' - concept. It's especially a good choise if you are with a couple of friends. You probably won't notice the noice around you a little bit less.

Stepped in with some colleagues. The ambiente is that you should not expect too much but also for business lunches it is okay. Although being served in form of a buffet you can expect a very good quality. The price around 17€ is more than okay. Staff is friendly and explaining the several food. Try the mufflon!

This was a lot of fun. The restaturant is located in the middle of nowhere (took us ages to find this) and the map location in this page is a bit off. We were able to find it using the address however.

Food was good. It was fun selecting different bits of meat and watching the cook prepare them. Of course, we only understood the all-you-can-drink part when we left and paid ;) It was nice to sit and enjoy the place. The best part of it was that the staff never harassed us or made us feel that we had overextended our stay. We ate a bit too much and just sat for an hour after finishing.

The price was not too much -> at 4990 (including all you can drink) for person, it was a lot cheaper than the more touristic places near Vaci Utca.
