  •   We went there for dinner to celebrate with family. The man was really friendly, polite and the atmosphere was great as well. They made our food really fast, and everything was really delicious. Everyone should try "Hen Consommé" ,"Beefsteak Tartare" and the Hungarian wines as...More

  •   This is quite a quirky restaurant that used to be a florist. You can see reminders of its past in the front where they display plants and flowers and on the walls, there are living plants all linked by pipes. My friend had been there...More

  •   Just moved back into the area and found this lovely Hungarian restaurant! The food was tasty, well presented and fresh. The hydroponic plant network is a great way to offset being in the hub of New Cross Gate and gives the place a low key...More

  • review rating 5  Love this place! Each time I come back, the fare exceeds the high expectations that I formed after my previous visit. The food is wholesome and utterly satisfying. I savour every bite of my favourite galuska & lecsó combo. I love the friendly atmosphere. It's a family-run operation and clearly is a very much-loved place. As a Brit who spent over 2 years living in Hungary, it feels like a warm, nostalgia-relieving hug every time I visit. This pretty culinary oasis is well worth every out-of-the-way journey to get there. I always look forward to returning.

  • review rating 5  Awesome selection of authentic (real home made quality) Hungarian food; nice extra side options and special drinks as well. Tasty, flavourful, good portions. Helpful, kind, friendly staff. Really nice warm romantic atmosphere (flowers, fish tank, nice lighting). Well worth the trip! Quality is much better than the expensive Gay Hussar was in Soho. We had pea soup, mushroom stew, pickled gherkins and pancakes; everything was so excellent we took away 3 more full meals. Update: Takeaway Chicken stew and lecsó was really tasty even after a day of fridge and microwave (sorry chef). Glad I could have some more nice food at work too after the weekend. Update 2: since then we've visited more times always with the same experience; can't leave without a takeaway 🙂

  • review rating 5  Best Hungarian food in London. The service is amazing, feels like family and the food is just like what a hungarian granny would cook. Love this place.

  • review rating 5  A lovely place. Really friendly owner, delicious food, and beautiful. There are tons of plants growing outside and inside. We grabbed a little sprig of mint from the wall to nibble after our meal! Plus you get a big hearty plateful for a very reasonable price.

  • review rating 5  This is truly the best Hungarian restaurant in London. The menu has all the typical dishes and 60+ types of Hungarian wines, impressive! The quality of the food is outstanding, as well as the service. We were served by the owner who is an absolutely lovely and polite Hungarian man. He told us he makes the túró (cottage cheese) himself, so it's a real homemade product. The atmosphere is fantastic too, we'll certainly go back. Highly recommended!
