The Gay Hussar

About The Gay Hussar

So much has been said about Soho's Gay Hussar, which has long been a favourite haunt of politicos and writers, that you don't really go here for the food but rather for the experience. Having said that, the Hungarian peasant dishes are simple but beautifully prepared and Gay Hussar can't fail to charm even the pickiest diner.
