  • Small Hungarian family restaurant
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP

    Small Hungarian family restaurant in strip mall location. However, the food was very good, the prices very reasonable and the service was very good as well. Not a lot of atmosphere, but food and service make up for this. This was our first time there at a friends recommendation. Would definitely go again

    If you want a hearty portion of German/Austrian/Hungarian food in an authentic Austro-Hungarian decor restaurant at an unbelievable value, then go here. Do not expect eleganct interior or a menu with anything "infused" on it.

    Fabulous food cooked to perfection and served by the owners who were very friendly and accommodating. The prices were quite moderate and the portions were huge! Potato pancakes with applesauce and/or sour cream started the meal. Calves liver with carmelized onions, bacon and roasted apple slices was delicious. My date's chicken paprikash was divine. The meals included beverage and dessert as well as salad and/or soup. The apple strudel was the lightest I ever had as it was made with phyllo dough. All in all, an outstanding meal. Very casual location in a neighborhood strip mall.

    A very pleasant surprise. The food was very good. The prices were fantastic. Large portions, all high quality products. Service was amazingly quick, almost too quick. You must try the apricot crepes, with real whipped cream.

    Like eating in a relatives dining room. Abundant food could use a bit more seasoning though. Friendly staff. Certainly worth the money.

    Hungarian home cooking! Good, filling comfort food. Any restaurant that brings fried potato pancakes to your table as soon as you sit down, has my vote.

    Terrific service. Fast, full attention, friendly, little details were really paid attention to. The food was okay and well priced. The potato pancakes were burnt, the salad was good, and my main was okay but my husband's was very much to his liking. Mixed review of this restaurant. I would give them a second try on the chance that it was just an off night for the cook.
