NileGuide Expert Says:
Don’t be deceived by the seemingly sparse entrance, the dining area is downstairs! An extensive menu of soups and salads from around the world has won this a dedicated following. Great for vegetarians. Try their “bad weather” soup (rosszido leves).
- Owner Szeva offers a wide variety of dishes from all over the world: Russia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Bengal, Japan, China, France, Greece, Italy and Hungary. It started as a little wooden salad bar, then added a balcony and now it consists of a ground-floor eatery and a spacious cellar, providing room for one hundred guests to sit in comfort. Beautiful Azerbaijani carpets in maroons and oranges cover the walls and even the ceiling, giving a cosy feel to the white stone interior. Georgian and Azerbaijani dishes are a specialty e.g. Pyty—a traditional lamb and vegetable soup—which makes a good starter. The chickpea curry and coq au vin are hearty and substantial. Why not cool down with a refreshing sherbet drink, made with lemon juice, sugar and basil, mint or coriander seeds? Jakibori is diced chicken breast in a piquant sauce with a huge mixed green salad. The wines are impressive too—try the Tokaji aszu 1988.
