Not even worth it to give a recession. Just DON'T go there. The food and service is not just bad it is disgusting. In German: Unbedingt die Finger weg. Der Laden ist ekelig!!!

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

Must be their location and outdoor marketing making things look good and then you are trapped when you find how things really are when the food comes.
