Restaurant is in a basement but nicely decorated. Service was quick and efficient. Portions are large and typically Hungarian cuisine. Would go back

Carmel is a relatively expensive restaurant where a meat patty starter, a roast beef main, french fries and diet coke cost $28. The menu is far more extensive than Hanna's and they have seating downstairs as well as upstairs.
