On the two times I tried to eat here - it was quite busy - but it was lively and everyone seemed happy and in good form - It's a lively busy place with a good menu - As I was traveling on my own I gave it a skip rather than waiting for a table .

This is a chain in Sofia, I went to the one in the Sofia Mall. Always packed, nice atmosphere, service is not that great. There were two of us, and both times we went, we were served on at a time. Second time, they forgot half the order, so we had to wait.

Service was a little slow. Food was average both in taste and temperature. We had seafood mains, which was small in portion size too. It's a typical franchise venue.

By far my favorite place to eat in Sofia. They have a great selection of appetizers, entrees, salads, and sushi. All for a very affordable price. The staff is super friendly and very good at their jobs. Overall 10/10 for everything you want in a dining experience.

They have a lot of options in their menu, but the prices are high for what they are offering, i mean the plates are quite small.

There was a lot of things to choose from with cheap prices. Grilled Salmon was amazing. Service differs at different branches i.e Paradise mall branch staff were not very friendly and service was too slow. With this branch it was okay but the branch next to the Seradika station was exceptional. We ended up going there on numerous occasions.

The restaurant is modern, looks like american fast food. We ordered sushi (best seller one) and it was really nice and cheap. The staff was not very friendly, but there is a reason, bacause there are many people waiting to order.

Nice service, clean place, friendly staff. Beatiful ladies serving food and nothing more. Small portions, kinda expensive, theoretically "gourmet" kitchen. Generally, there is nothing more than the will to impress. But their dishes are nothing more than "so and so". Tried it once, I do not think that I will repeat this.

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
