I had a very nice dinner in general. Tried the Bento Buddha Bar and the presentation and flavors were amazing! For desert a great surprise: White Chocolate Dream! Awesome! Our waiter was Marcell, a long time I didn`t see someone so nice and so good at it. About the restaurant itself, I expected a little bit more, since I went... More

As a single traveller going to restaurants on your own can be daunting. The restaurant is stunning. The waiting staff Norbert in particular was attentive but discreet at the same time. The sushi is amazing - top quality and in good portions. The sushi bento box offered the right amount of variety. Funky music and a relaxed atmosphere makes this... More

We went to Buddha-Bar lounge and i must say, they made the nicest drinks ever. I would definitely go back here again if I am in Budapest again! Friendly staff and the atmosphere was brilliant. Very very pleasant time.

Amazing sushi and great service from Vivien and the other staff. Not your average hotel restaurant - cool atmosphere, great music from dj upstairs and smart and stylish Asian decor + excellent value for money. Impossible not to enjoy!

Stopped by here on New Years Day with a couple of friends. The cocktail menu is amazing and although a bit expensive for Budapest, the drinks here could easily go for double in places like New York or London. The atmosphere is very dark and intimate, the sort of joint you mind find in a James Bond film. Didn't try... More

Hotel Restaurants are sometimes a quick decision when it is about food, but often not the best one. BUT Buddha Bar Restaurant in Budapest is different. Amazing atmosphere, delicious food and extraordinary service. The Sushi was in outstanding food quality. So not the Standard Sushi and Maki Sets - really experimental with a special hint of freshness. Also accompanied by... More

Four of us ate hear after taking a boat trip along the Danube. The food was first rate, the staff were excellent, knowledgeable and friendly. Two of us are vegetarian and we were guided through the best choice of dishes. Everything in the restaurant oozed taste and comfort. Not the cheapest of eating places but the food, surroundings and staff... More

It's the second time we come here in two years. Our experience was amazing both times. The lunch offers are simply delicious and offer a variety of different asian foods. The mood of the place is just great! A special thanks to Attila, our waiter, who was super attentive to our needs and made a special effort for my birthday.

Very hard chicken meat and the reason was that they don't use chicken breast because it gets too dry!! The waiter stood and told me how to make butter chicken to me (I am from the country that invented the butter chicken ) But the tom yum soup was good and I think they should keep the Thai kitchen and...

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
