Came expecting a sort of 'China Town' experience of street food as advertised. Yes, there may be several stalls serving what looked/smelled like reasonable street food BUT- you are in the middle of an industrial estate. Absolutely no atmosphere, no local bars, just a succession...More

Not really a good tourist place, lots of wholesale dealers for small businesses and if you can buy anything it´s copy's.

Great destination if you live in Budapest and need cheap Made in China stuff - gloves, iPad cover, housewares, etc. Not really worth it otherwise. 10 minute tram ride from Blaja Luisa. Big expansive (not expensive) labyrinth of stalls on one side and a warehouse...More
