A mysterious Indian lady mesmerizes passersby from a shop window opposite from Fogas Ház; even though at first glance this place looks like a hairdressering salon, Bollywood Vegetarian Bar is in fact the neighborhood’s only vegetarian Indian restaurant. The interior is surreally stunning; while we wait for our dish, it is worthwhile to let our eyes wander amid the decorations, from the colorful posters of Indian pop stars to Christmas baubles. Fortunately, Bollywood is open until late at night in the center of the party district, so we can pop in when we crave some Indian food almost anytime.

Prices 600-1,500 HUF

Even though they are more upscale than the previous eateries included in this article, Haveli and Shalimar both made it on our list, as they offer low-cost lunch specials – in addition to several affordable meals on their à la carte menu. Haveli’s lunch offer varies weekly, and includes a soup and a main dish with naan bread and rice. The vegetarian version is 1,290 forints, while the meaty option is 1,490 forints. At Haveli, generous portions and memorable flavors are always found on our plate.
