Description: 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.

“All-around good food and value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

You generally get what you expect when you go to any Happy - friendly staff, good food prepared quickly, and a pretty solid choice on the menu (though leaning mostly towards fried food and meat). I've gone numerous times and haven't had a meal yet that I didn't enjoy. Perhaps not the best and certainly not the healthiest food Bulgaria has to offer, but always a decent choice and a nice place to go with friends and family for lunch or dinner.

“Cheap&Good Quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Great place if you can't decide for a restaurant and you want to get cheap dinner with good quality (around 10EUR per person with drink). All ladies in mini skirts super helpful and spoke English. Very good customer service of all the staff. Food is of good quality for this kind of chain, gets out of the kitchen quickly. Recommended.

“Refreshing lemonade and good meals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Nice big umbrellas to get out of the midday sun! Refreshing Lemonade and good value meals. It's opposite a nice church however the trees around the church spoil the view.
