Gypsy music Sunday November 7th, 2010 6pm
$45 Admission includes dinner and entertainment.
"A few weeks ago I paid my initial visit to Duna Csárda Restaurant for one of Dolores Petersen Presents evenings at this locale which, as of late, has also been functioning as a performance space for some of Southern California finest players and singers (mostly) in the field of jazz. I came for the music, but ended up staying for (and enjoying) the food as well. The stuffed cabbage is a poem! But that’s another story left to the devices of various SoCal food critics, who’ve tended to have a lot of nice things to say about this Hungarian cuisinerie" - Bill Reed!/pages/Los-Angeles-CA/Duna-Csarda-Entertainment/136738063004880?v=wall

DUNA CSARDA MELROSE NEAR VINE......NEW AND STYLISHLY REDECORATED. Unusual hungarian food at amazing prices. Quiet and sophisticated for intimate dinners. Amazing prices for early birds and Sunday brunch. Call to find out about musical specials. Gypsy night was FABULOUS.

This buffet is more like home cooking than a restaurant, and the food is delicious. Cabbage rolls like a friend from the old country used to make, with spaetzle, paprika chicken, wow. The price is inexpensive, and the quality is superb. I can't imagine what the former reviewer experienced, but I was bowled over by the place. The atmosphere is not great, but I found nothing wrong with it. There are white tablecloths and the room is large and open, with an enclosed patio as well. The waitress was attentive and friendly, and answered all my questions about the food. Not being Hungarian, I had quite a few. As for the desserts, I don't remember the names, but if you can stop at only one, you are an unusually strong person. I will be going back every time I get near the place, which is frequently.

I found the food to be very good, the one and only time I ate there. Obviously, tastes differ greatly among individuals, especially when it comes to ethnic food. As a Hungarian myself, ) found the food to be pretty authentic, with a taste not unlike my mother's cooking.

This place is horrible. Don't bother going. There is no atmosphere to speak of, the food is either salty or bland the servers ignore you and it's just a complete waste of money and time. We expected more when the name changed of the place, we were told they have new chefs in the kitchen, that may be, but it was HORRIBLE! My husband and I are both hungarian, and would never recommend this place to anybody. The ONLY thing going for them is the dessert, go in, buy a dessert and have it to go. That's the only way you'll enjoy anything from this place, in a box at home.
