We rarely go back to restaurants, but after a lovely dinner here we returned for lunch later in the week when we were doing some shopping in KK. A good range of food, reasonably priced and beautifully spiced. It's popular, so don't get there too late. They have homemade cakes for desert / a snack and make a mean cocktail too. Plus, none of this will break the bank! A refreshing change to have delicious Hungarian food when you want something other than rice and noodles.

i kept hearing about this place and how great the food was, then i was told(too late) can only go at night when the owner(s) are there cooking.... the hungarian goulash tasted like canned dingy moore, a very small can. We watched our food sit in the window for 3 minutes because they had not brought our drinks over yet and the waitress stopped the food from coming until they had..... and yet there were only 3 tables and one was almost finished, oh well the hungarian dessert was pretty good. I'm still working up the courage to go back in the evening and see if it is better then. Will let you know when/if that happens.

Excellent choice if you are getting tired of the local cuisine. Me and my gf had a really nice three course meal. The chicken roulade was amazing :) It was cheap too - think we ended up paying 105 RM for the both of us. When we were there we could not pay with visa so be sure to bring some cash just in case.

An unconventional menu for this area, some very interesting choices for reasonable prices. We would have appreciated more vegetarian friendly options, but probably Hungarian kitchen is not really vegetarian friendly. I had the Chilli Vanilla platter, which was really great, awesome hummus! Also the Iced Teas were really good. Nice staff.

I had the hummus and pizzas. Nice and light! And while waits for my takeaway, they even served me water which they didn't have to. Good customer service.
