Kisharang Étkezde Review

There are only three tables and a counter at this tiny home-style restaurant not far from the basilica. It gets a lunch crowd early and bustles well into the late afternoon with downtown professional types, closing right after early dinner (by 8 pm). Dishes Hungarian grandmothers make, including goose-dumpling soup and stuffed cabbage with pork, elicit smiles from most patrons. Daily specials generally come in two sizes, but even the biggest is cheaper than anything else in this area.

    Kisharang Étkezde Review

    We tried to get in at 9.30, but was said the place was already closed. We stubbornly returned the day after at 8.30, convinced of the rusticity and home-like appareal would like a real tipical cousine. Delusional.
    Service is awful: a young looby waiter (who cant' speek english or otherelse than hungarian) will tell you that there is no beer or wine in the place, and that you can choose between just 3-4 dishes from the menu. All food is pre-cooked and poorly re-heated. The mistress is unkind rude, and unfriendly. Our stuff was poor and bland, we left half of it. The sign on the door says "20 years of activity"; well, if the service has always been like this, I guess the only reason for the survival of the place is the closeness to the parliament, which refill the place with new turists like us who may get cheated by a red-white chesslike tablecloth. Only pro is the price: 10 euro for 2 people (2 dishes and some water). But if you spend them to left food apart, it's not worth it.
    Avoid it.
