From start to finish, a lovely experience as always. Food incredible. Range of wines and drinks very well chosen. Service was immaculate and exemplorary. Ambience of character, charm and historic British socialist importance. Well done.

Best restaurant in town by a distance.

In a building dating to 1680, The Gay Hussar in Soho serves authentic Hungarian cuisine alongside fine Magyar wines. Frequented by leading politicians, journalists, and artists for over 50 years, this historic restaurant is lined with politician caricatures by acclaimed sketcher, Martin Rowson.

The Gay Hassar menu has hardly been altered since opening in 1953. Generously-portioned dishes include the kapros-gombás halgaluska, fish dumplings in a creamy dill and mushroom sauce, served with rice; and the csirkepaprikás galuskával, chicken in a creamy paprika sauce, served with galuska.

Desserts include the delicious dobos torta, a layered gateau with a caramel top. The Gay Hassar in Soho also has an extensive beverage list, including fine Hungarian wines, Tojaji dessert wines and Hungarian liqueurs.

Subtle lighting and plush furnishings add to the welcoming, relaxed atmosphere that this restaurant is so famous for. The Gay Hussar in London is a 5-minute walk from Tottenham Court Road Tube Station.

    I had the goulash with spaetzle. It was great. The chicken with lemon soup was very flavorful and the cheese pancakes (palacintas) for dessert were marvelous. The portions are large. This as a 3 course early bird special 5:30 to 6:30. The choices were very good. cost only 17.90 lbs.

    It was excellent food; staff were attentive and authentic (Hungarian origin); and the wine was superb!
    All around fantastic experience.
    Moreover, we were hoping to have the duck liver but they were all out... hopefully we will on the next visit.
