Rickshaw can be found inside the Corinthia Hotel in Budapest. The Corinthia Hotel is known for its grand surroundings, and Rickshaw is equally as opulent. Its Asian inspired interiors are simply gorgeous and make for an interesting and sophisticated dining experience. We decided to visit Rickshaw during a recent trip to Budapest, and we’re glad we did.

When we arrived at the restaurant, we were greeted warmly and shown to our table. We decided to begin our evening with a couple of cocktails, each one arriving complete with its own history and story. I chose the espresso martini, with its story dating back to its conception in London’s Soho in 1983 by Dick Brad. My partner decided upon the Negroni, with the story telling of how the cocktail was first created in 1919 in Florence, by bartender Fosco Scarselli. The cocktails were wonderfully authentic and nothing short of delicious, and we enjoyed our accompanying history lesson which made for a great talking point.

To begin our dining experience, we chose to share their traditional Peking duck Chinese rice pancakes with cucumber, leek and Hoisin-sweet bean sauce. This dish was a culinary delight, offering all the flavours you could hope for, with the tender and fragrant duck simply melting in the mouth.

“Our entire experience was enjoyable, from the service to the cocktails and certainly the food.”

For our main courses, my partner chose the sweet and sour pork with pork tenderloin and pineapple, and I chose the Hunan lamb, which was served with seasonal vegetables, soy sauce and fresh ginger. We also added a side of egg-fried rice with king prawns. Each dish was simply bursting with flavour and we were extremely pleased with our choices.

Having been particularly impressed with our first round of cocktails, we decided to sample a couple more. I chose the Chi-Chi, which was a mix of vodka, Blue Curaçao, coconut cream, pineapple and vanilla ice cream. This creamy and fruity cocktail was certainly a hit for me. My partner chose the Malay Tiger which saw vodka mixed with lime, mint leaves and ginger beer. This was a punchy and refreshing cocktail that certainly hit the spot.

If you happen to be visiting Budapest and enjoy Asian cuisine, we are quite confident you won’t be disappointed with Rickshaw. Our entire experience was enjoyable, from the service to the cocktails and certainly the food. We will certainly be returning, and will look forward to doing so.
