It was the most suggested place by people who lived in Sofia but also have visited the city in the past. However, I wouldn't recommend this place as it is familiar with Friday's and generally places with quick and standardized meals. Nothing special.

The waitresses were very young, but nevertheless polite and efficient. My husband had a bronchitis with very bad cough, and our waitress brought him a complimentary tea with honey - I couldn't believe it. They did not charged us! These guys know how to retain customers! The food was very delicious also - my family's being visiting the restaurant for... More

We visited with my fiance the certain restaurant, for my first try, since I had heard very good critics about it. The environment was very nice. The place is separated to smoking and non smoking. So everyone has the freedom of choice. The waitress was helpful and very quick in her responses to the calls. The plates were delicious. So... More

This is one of my most favourite Bulgarian chain of restaurants. And this one especially has good location and you could always find place in it, even if you have to wait a little. Good food. Charming staff. Everything is worth it.

Bad food. Like any other fast food place, nothing to die for. Mac donalds is about the same bad fast food

Love this chain. Never been disappointed. Food and service is excellent while prices are still very competitive. I wish we could find more of these restaurants either in Bulgaria or overseas. Go there !

This restaurant, at which you can happily sit and enjoy drinks without eating, is happily decorated with rock memorabilia. It is popular with customers of all ages and has a large smoking section separate from the main one, which appears warm, being enclosed in glass rather than the usual Sofia flimsy plastic. Inside, there is a wide menu, including lots... More

The first restaurant that opened its doors in our capital was Happy Budapest. The restaurant operates from 28th May 2000, and has since pleased its clients with unique Happy specialties, among which authentic Japanese sushi, prepared by our sushi chef. In Happy Budapest you can enjoy the dancing waitresses, serving 220 tables inside and in summer another 60 tables in the garden of the restaurant. Opening hours: every day from 12:00 to 23:00
