We also received the following feedback from our attendees:
I would like to thank David Buchler & the Budapest staff for their assistance.
We hope to hold another successful event there some time in the near future.
By the way the food is delicious at Budapest Restaurant especially the goulash, crumbed mushrooms and they also make sensational schnitzels.
If you haven’t been before it’s definitely worth going.
