Palladium shopping centre in my view rates high among the ugliest places in Prague, this restaurant though is one of a few peaceful retreats within the centre. I am sure you will enjoy its atmposphere and peace (unless you arrive at about midday which is a very busy time on workdays). As for the food just dont expect too much.... More

I've eaten Indian food all over the world. So far this is the best I've had in continental Europe. It isn't perfect by a long shot but it absolutely satisfies the craving whereas other restaurants here don't. This is the only place serving the real papdums imported from India, as far as I can tell. The naan is light and... More

Had dinner at the restaurant. The service was very nice, the food was average. The main negative was that the portion size was very small when compared to the price we paid.

This was my second time to the Chanchala as I was craving Indian food and wanted to give them another chance. Unfortunately, they did nothing to improve the speed of service or the authenticity of the place although they are keen on handing out feedback questionnaires at the end of the visit. The only Indian person to be seen is... More

My wife and I have an Indian meal every Saturday night at home, so even on holiday we like our hit of curry spice. The Chanchala looks ok from the outside so we were tempted in. I ordered the Chicken Madras, I would say I got 10 very small bits of Chicken in a very very dark sauce, it tasted... More

Probably the worst indian food restaurant I have been too and I have been to a few poor ones. The staff and atmosphere is good, but there is nothing indian about the food. We tried a few dishes and left everything we had. Definitely avoid this place.

I greatly appreciated the ambience of the restaurant. It is decorated in Indian style with quite lovely combination of colours. I thank the staff for the exceptional service they... More
