I loved it ,proper kebab and kofta. Very good quality and very good service. The food took its time as it is freshly prepared. We went 3 times,and we keep trying new items from the menu. Highly recommended.

If you interested about the authentic Persian food and do not miss the alcohol but prefer a simple friendly place go there in Budapest. Guaranteed you will not be disappointed. Taste the salads and the special sisliks, or try their special nonalcoholic drinks!
