We've compiled Budapest's best Middle Eastern, Northern African, Persian, and Georgian restaurants, so you can gorge yourself on creamy hummus, crunchy falafel, fresh fattoush salad, herby ghormeh sabzi stew, Moroccoan chicken tangine, and traditional khachapuri Adjaruli. Enough said.
Many Iranian residents in Budapest would tell you that Darband is the city's best Persian restaurant. The nondescript entrance and the below-ground, modest space belie the wonderful dishes that come out of the restaurant's kitchen. The dining booths that line Darband's rather drab interior are each named after an old Tehran street. More importantly, both the restaurant's owner and its head chef are Iranian natives.
