A range of Romanian-Hungarian food, in fact foods that you find mainly in Transylvania. Snitzel is good- I will never work to fry it home. They have caviar-the real deal- at a decent price. Good bread. Decent service.

When we were there nobody come for a while to get our orders, and then when they did that we waited an hour to be served and it was not a tasteful food, oily, sugary and not authentic as some think.

We made reservations at Charivari Restaurant for lunch on Christmas Day. This place was one of the few restaurants in Houston open on Christmas Day. The food as well as the service were pretty average. We won't be back.
