With this recognition, they made it to the top 10 percent of the world’s best restaurants.
You might have heard about restaurants in Budapest getting important awards and recognitions but now a small family restaurant, Balalajka Russian Bistro in Szolnok (located in the Eastern part of the country) has made it to the headlines because they recently got the Travellers’ Choice award from Tripadvisor. With this recognition, they made it to the top 10 percent of the world’s best restaurants.
This is not their first award: before that, Forbes Magazine declared it the ‘most Russian’ restaurant in Hungary. Besides, the owners even got a prestigious state award from Moscow, as well, for their work in gastronomy and culture.
What do they offer?
If you are a fan of traditional Russian food, culture and music, you will love it because the owners, András Kolozsvári and his wife Kátya, who was born is Siberia present all of these authentically. Kátya even plays the Russian instrument balalajka, from where the bistro got its name so don’t be surprised if some authentic balalajka music will be added your Saturday supper. ;)
