This is not the best, but certainly a very solid Thai restaurant for enjoying a night out. I would recommend it!

Decent prices, decent food. Portions are good sized. Nothing special, really. Just your ordinary Hungarian restaurant. But not bad!

Excellent service and food. Bit over priced but not that bad. We had assorted sushi plates with champagne and had good experience and enjoyed.

We originally came for drinks but decided to purchase the sushi as well. The gentleman at the counter was rude he just said no to everything that we asked. Possibly lost in translation, but the hostess immediately seated us and the experience was nothing less than pleasant from there. We really enjoyed our experience.

Where do I begin. While waiting to be served I noticed that at the table next to us people were given forks for their sushi. Face palm. Also having run out of avocado the chef decided to fill their sushi with asparagus. After getting our starters I noticed the waiter walking around with my sushi confused with whose order it... More

The service in Budapest isn't the best but this place takes it to the next level. If you sit inside, prepare to wait between 15min - 30min for someone to take your order. My server completely forgot my main dish and only brought my drink and dessert. Finally it comes, after the cooks clue in and send the waitress over.... More

Nice outdoor seating but crazy over powering music, very slow service and food done incorrectly. Waitress never stopped back. Overall a place to skip.
