Went to this place for a friend's anniversary celebration and was very impressed with the quality of the food: veal soup appetizer that was tender, flavourful, and thick like a stew (one person just had that for their mains); several types of schnitzel (I had the "Jolly Schnitzel") juicy, tender, not overcooked sides; and 5 types of palacsinta for dessert (yep, sampled all of them: plum jam, rosehip jam, walnut, cheese, nutella). The service was quick and attentive. When I asked for a Blueberry Tea when I arrived, they didn't know it was an alcoholic beverage. When I clarified, they went right to the internet, looked up the recipe and made it for me. Fast and attentive service throughout the night.

All food arrived promtly and at the correct temperature (there were 19 of us!!) All parties reported very happy with their food choices. I was under $50 including my alcoholic bevie.

The decor is ... moderne bistro? looks cosmopolitan (despite the Hungarian sound of their menu). They are just North (by a block from the Dufferin Gates of the Ex) so not so easy to get to, but well worth the effort. Took TTC so can't say about parking.

I'd be interested to find out if the quality is consistent and plan to go back in the new year.
