A network of restaurants all over Sofia, delicious food and a variety of options, beef, chicken, pork, seafood, and sushi. Generous portions at a ridiculous price and equal to all, efficient and courteous service in short for excellent value for money

Family visit. Ordered burgers, sushi, and beers. Everything tasted good and it seemed good quality too. Considering the place, the food and the service prizes are ok. Great variety of sushi!! Note: this is a blue zone area, therefore parking is limited and not free....More

Though not impressed by the name and the decoration initially, I was astonished by the menu. There is a variety of wonderful selections. Salad is so distinctively amazing, and streaky pork with roasted potato is really tasty. Will definitely come back to try 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.
