Jumped off the tram 4/6 a stop before our hotel as we were unable to check in till 2pm and we found this gem of a bar for lunch today. Immediately welcoming staff found us a shady table outside and then supplied us with amazing IPA draught beer. After another beer, we asked for the menu. Small but varied lunch menu but lots of veggie options also. My partner and I were drawn to the same two dishes, so we ordered one of each and shared. Crispy chicken thighs with beetroot mayo and turmeric potatoes, and lamb Kebabs which came with great fluffy bits of pitta, and yoghurt and mint dressing and parsley salad. All delicious. Fabulous service, excellent English spoken and altogether a perfect lunch, and extremely good value. I promised to post this promptly to tell them how good they were! Seek this out just before the bridge across the Danube on the 4/6 tram route close to Oktogon.

I visited two times in last two weeks. Unfortunately their welcoming was very disturbing and snobish. Food was avarage.
I will never go there again. Please stay away from Babka

Found this lovely gem close to Jászai Mari square. The location is ideal as the 4-6 tram is very close. The restaurant has this "grandma's living room" feel to it, which makes it extra cosy. The staff is welcoming and friendly. The food is delicious, lots of meze style dishes. great wine and drink selection. They also have ahn outside area. Very lovely! recommend!

We went here on a warm Monday evening in May without a reservation. We arrived around 9 PM and the terrace was full. But we were greeted at the door by a friendly lady who showed us to a table inside. Later when the terrace closed it became busy inside too. The place is open until midnight. The interior is decorated very creatively and it has a nice atmosphere. The menu is not typically Hungarian, it has some Near East influences. We chose relatively 'safe', ordering deep-fried chicken with jasmin rice and vegetable curry. We liked it very much, especially the curry. For dessert we had a kind of chocolate souffle and the Babka cake. Both were excellent. The portions were not too large which we appreciated - the cook focuses on quality over quantity. The staff was pleasant and attentive. We will be back to try some other items from the menu!
