I have developed an obsession over this place. Hidden gem just a few steps away from Oktagon, shadowed by 'tourist-trap' restaurants. Their beef/pork/chicken noodles are very authentic and very tasty. The pan-fried dumpling and bao are quite good as well. Gladly go back, any time!...More

The atmosphere and service is very nice. One of the pork meals was really salty, but everything else was delicious.

I recommend this place where I ate the best dumplings of my life. The menu is relatively small but from my perspective it is a sign of quality. We had many meals for a decent price and the waiter was very nice. You should go...More

Hello - we ate here on our last night of a 3-day weekend. Sun 18th Feb 2018. Walked about a mile down Andrassy Utca on our way - a treat in itself. Small place but 'interesting'. We were seated upstairs (recommended) and started with some...More
