Oriental Soup House is my favorite place if I want to eat soup from Asia.
Lovely interior, friendly service, very nice design, but book yourself a table if you don't want to wait long otherwise maybe you have to wait 30-40 minutes to sit down.
I tried couple of times different soups and always everything was perfect.
Warmly recommend to visit!

Yesterday one of the biggest Hungarian online newspaper reported a short article with a picture about the receipt and announced that the restaurant put the tap water to the menu and it costs 200 HUF (0,7 Euro). Since then the issue started to go viral via Facebook and the restaurant just answered with a fussy and long post with many grammar failures about their opinion. They described their own version of the story of the cunsomer who made written the article and reacted hysterically: their statement was that their waiters don't have time to give free tap water to the guests. However water costs money for restaurant too, I claim that restaurants are legally required to provide drinking water for guests. Most Hungarians thought that asking money for tap water is unfair and a mean thing, even if you leave there just a little amount of money. This place will go bust soon. I ate here 3 times with friends in the last six month and it was average, but personally I would avoid it again as I cannot agree with their unprofessional reaction. Other restaurants in Budapest give consumers the possibility to drink free tap water.

If you are guite hungry and need high quality food, this is a good choice for you. The place is very popular, thererore make the reservation at least 6-8 hours before arrival. The doses are huge, one soup is more than enough.
The waitors are quick and kind.

Like ambience with good light coming from both sides. Rustic tables. I thought my pho soup was kind of generic, lacking an authentic Vietnamese je ne sais quois. The sake shot was tiny. I'd come again for the atmosphere.

Totally recommend this wonderful restaurant. Staff were friendly and the Oriental Pho soup was so delicious and just like the soup I had in Vietnam a few years ago.
