Away from the crowds and noise of the old town center, but very easy to find. Very interesting decoration, very polite and fast service. The food was really good, the size of the portions more than satisfying and the price on the low side.

Only reason why i keep go to this place is my friend love it and keep bringing me here. I can see that this place have a class without unnecessary fancy things but since i spent in Asia (Thailand mostly) not a one year i'm...kinda spoiled and can't see any uniqueness which people discover here and admire. I think is too dark here for my opinion. I can barely can see the person who sit with me at same table if you're not sitting near window. Otherwise it is pretty comfy place especially for some date. Owner and stuff are Vietnamese but menu include Czech, Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai cuisine, so, i think you can call this place generally Asian cuisine restaurant. But the problem is when i tried fried noodle with chicken - Thai style, i honestly, didn't felt any Thai's in it. Don't get me wrong, it was delicious as any other meals i ate here but i just don't get it why it call Thai style. And of course, because Maly Buddha locate like 300 meter from Prague Castle this is not cheap or even average prices place at all. And still i think with such a prices it suppose to be a little bit more food on plate. I see this is a good place, i see people like how it look and like the food here, but me, personally, not feeling it. i can't set 3 out 5 for this but it is not a 4 too.More

Had a meal here last week. Chris had prawn pad thai and I had chicken pad thai washed down with a beer each. The food was lovely and plentiful but the service was a little unfriendly. I would visit again but with a torch!

At first, we were nicely surprised by the pleasant atmosphere when we walked in. Unfortunately, the food didn´t meet our expecations and didn´t reflect the price, which was acceptable considering the location of this place - but it´s defo not cheap here...

Had a meal here recently and had read that we couldn’t book a table, so we arrived fairly early and had no problem getting a table for two. The restaurant is very dark but the food was very fresh and good quality. Only cash is...accepted here.More

I came for lunch and ordered the fresh spring rolls (best thing we ate) as well as chicken cashew and mushrooms. The food was all good although it is difficult to see at most of the tables as the place is very dark. The services...was mediocre- we had to ask for utilsels more than once. Something to note is they ONLY take cash. There are no signs on their website or on their door and so this is a surprise.More

The staff are great but they don't get any of the tips. Food was good but staff clearly aren't looked after. Shame about the management because the place is beautiful.

It was good to eat something different from the standard Czech fare of meat and dumplings. We ordered dishes to share and they were all delicious. The red rice with cashews was unusual, but the perfect accompaniment to the other dishes. Fresh lightly cooked vegetables...were really good and the crispy crab rolls a standout. Good service, friendly staff and lovely and cool inside after a very hot day.More

The food was great, and the location was adorable. Note- Cash only! Also note- be very clear about which water you are buying. Small thing but we said “bottomless water for (amount)” and even pointed to it on the menu. However, they gave us fancier...water with limes and charged us double the amount. Lychee drinks were delicious.More

The chef/owner has been here for 24 years, the longevity is testament to what he does and does well. The menu has been changed - gasp - but fear not ... it's just a bit more user friendly to read - all the favourites are...still there - all fresh and delicious with coriander and mint running through. The food is fresh and tasty and generous. It's dark and atmospheric inside, savour your time here. Book for larger tables. A really popular spot with locals and Prague inhabitants, off the beaten track but once you find it, you'll be back.More

Your experience in Prague will never be complete if
you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched
from the west to the north, provide spectacular views
of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone
streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green
gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses.
Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history.
