I've reviewed this wonderful gem many times but I feel compelled to do so again. If you like inexpensive, high-quality, authentic, tasty food and incredibly great service. Make the trip here. There are a variety of tasty treats that await you. Still the best bargain and experience for the money in Budapest and I've been eating in Bp for 15... More

Cash only - very irritating even though the restaurant itself is not expensive. Food came quickly and with friendly service, although the main course arrived before I had finished my starter. Thai green tea was lukewarm. Delicious prawn starter, decent beef and ginger stew with good rice. Very attractive food presentation. I am not surprised this restaurant is popular, it... More

Lots of locals at 7 pm on a Wednesday. Not a big place, but nice with discrete background music. The limited menu had several unavailable dishes and Heineken beer was out. But the food was tasty and reasonably priced. Recommended.

The best soup in town. Definitely the best value for money. Other courses are also ok, but the Pho soup is the best!!!

Best pho and a very nice crew. We got our meal very fast, and we even got served a few minutes after hours. During peak time it can be difficult to find a seat. Once again, highly recommended.

Despite the average interior setting and fast food kind of feeling you get, this place has the most authentic vietnamese cuisine. After trying several fancier places in Budapest, I most definitely say that Hai Nam makes the best pho and bun soup in town. The service is very friendly and prompt - the place is very crowded most of the... More
