Salaam Bombay Restaurant – Indian Restaurant, Budapest: a fabulous Indian restaurant in the city centre, in Merleg street, close to the Chain BridgeGresham Palace, and a bunch of luxury hotels in Budapest like the Four Seasons Budapest, Sofitel Budapest, Intercontinental Budapest, etc. Good service, pleasant modern and colourful decor, well presented dishes, a bit expensive prices. There were some complaints about the squeaky rice, and some of the main courses too. As a tourist from the UK remarked “Very good service and nice restaurant. Not as great as some Indians we have had in London but still very nice. Cocktails here are delicious and cheap! Food works out more expensive than Hungarian restaurants we tried but cheap compared with London prices.”

Govinda – Indian Restaurant, Budapest

Govinda Etterem – Indian Restaurant, Budapest: the popular Indian restaurant serves excellent vegetarian foods at reasonable prices (the portions are large), polite staff, casual atmosphere. Absolutely packed at lunch time. Veggie paradise.

Karma Cafe – Indian Restaurant, Budapest

Karma Cafe & Etterem – Indian Restaurant, Budapest: the restaurant is located in the popular restaurant quarters of Budapest on Liszt Ferenc square. No wonder it is one of the most reviewed Indian restaurants on travel forums. Most guests find the place very good or excellent with an occasional poor and average rating. Especially the service is criticised as slow and condescending. Prices are not on the cheap side (which is more or less true of Liszt Ferenc square, so try the side streets in order to find more reasonable prices in the neighbourhood). Although the place has a nice terrace, and the food is good, better service is very much part of a good restaurant. Hopefully they will improve their karma.

Taj Mahal Indian Restaurant, Budapest
Taj Mahal Etterem- Indian Restaurant, Budapest: the restaurant from the inside does feel like being in India (even the waitresses wear traditional Indian saris), except it is in Budapest. Taj Mahal restaurant is warmly recommended for its good value and good food, and a long long menu to pick your Indian dishes from, excellent service. Vegetarians will love this place. Most rave about the place, and few says it is average, like a tourists who said “it’s nowhere on the international indian cuisine scale. In London you can get twice the quality at half the price.” The restaurant is not far from the city centre in Szondi street, district VI.
