If you’re looking for a cheap place to eat something is all right. I just want to agree with other reviews that the service is quite poor and unfriendly. They show a bad face when we asked which dishes were spicy and which ones weren’t...More

The personal is really unpleasant, I really felt at discomfort. The good and the prices are ok, but I don't really recommend it. They really are rude.

Lovely food. We had 2 x small noodles each with a different chicken dish, 1 can of beer and a bottle of coke for under £6. One was cold but they just heat it up in the microwave but can't complain for the price.

Nice array of choices, good quality food, friendly atmosphere on the upper floor with comfy seats and tables. The place is busy at lunch time but the queue goes fast, the staff is helpful. The food is Eastern style.

Had the prawn chop suey, fried noodles and a side of spring rolls for lunch. I know it's a sort of fast-food but still... Food was greasy and cold. The spring rolls were dried up and underfilled. Was busy but quick, service was clear and...More

TAO is a chinese joint in Kalvin ter, in the middle of Budapest. It's not a fancy place but for the price, it's worth it. I remember sticking my teeth for the first time on the double deep fried (or whatever other shenanigans they have...More

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
