The foods were great. Kababs were tasty. The lemonade mint drink was exactly what I looked for a long time. The place is decorated with Iranian symbols and pictures. In total I recommend here to anybody.

Juicy, succulent kebab & fragrant rice meals are highlights. Haven't met anybody who isn't impressed by the food here. Wait staff is really accommodating & patient. 15 minutes walk from Margit island.

My boyfriend and I stayed near by and searched trip advisor for the closest restaurant that served Hungarian food. It was bloody delicious! The service was excellent. Food was prompt. Great atmosphere!

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
