Very good food and friendly service. A pleasant experience also for non-vegetarians. Many attempting choices, so it was even difficult to choose what to eat....

Went for Vegan options and our waitress was patient, kind and guided us thru the vegetarian menu to ensure our orders were 100% vegan. Lots to choose from and good preparation

The food looked awesome on the menu, but the service was so horrible. We had a reservation but the waitress was so rude we left before our drinks arrived. They should be ashamed they employ people like this. If you go with a group and...have a reservation you should expect to be disrespected and if you want to think about your drink too long you’ll get an attitude from the waitress (short hair with glasses if you see this I hope you will sort your attitude out). They worked with a group menu but even asking about it was too much for her. The restaurant wasn’t even full so we wouldn’t be waisting their time. Absolutely horrible!More

Waitress had no patience at all. Couldn’t answer the most basic question about the menu. Was rude and didn’t give us any time to make our choice.

Wow I am shocked. I was alone and it was raining outside so I decided to have lunch. First I started with a coffee. Then I ordered a soup and a sandwich. After lunch I ordered a juice. Then I finished my juice the waitress...literally said: hey do you want the bill of another drink? And I said nothing for now, maybe just now/ And they asked me to leave😅🤣 because they needed the table. Very shocked. I have never been treated this way. I ordered 4 things in 1.5 hours. I mean come on…. I won’t be going back. RidulousMore

Really cute restaurant in the middle of town. The Appetizers portion size was on the small side. Tiny pieces of bread The food was good but not really great the thing that ruined it for me was our server she really wasn’t friendly just going...through the motions taking the order not suggesting anything it almost seemed like a burden for her to take our order had to get her attention a few times to order more food everybody else there was wonderful but I don’t think I will go backMore

Visiting Prague for the first time and saw this little restaurant. We ordered our food and drinks, waited 30minutes and nothing but our drinks were delivered. We asked a waiter, 'Martin', how long we should expect to wait - he was quite arrogant in his...response and said we hadn't ordered 30mins ago and exaggerated. The service was awful, reference 'Martin' again, was so rude to us. The food was actually nice so hat's off the the Chef - and two stars count towards the food only. The service was so poor, we wouldn't ever recommend to anyone, to add to this - numerous amount of flies and lack of air conditioning! Overall, good food but poor customer service -isn't worth visiting again!More

Two of us visited. The food was absolutely delicious! We enjoyed it so much, we visited again before leaving Prague. The service was excellent and the staff were really lovely. Would definitely recommend. This is a vegetarian restaurant. My husband isn’t veggie but thoroughly enjoyed...the food, (he’s used to eating veggie several times a week so knows his veggie options)! I meant to ask if they can do vegan as I’m dairy intolerant so often eat vegan when out. My two (adult) children are both vegan and would definitely go to Maitrea if they did a vegan menu too. Good prices also. Great atmosphere.More

What a treat to find such a soulful place in the tourist area of Prague. And what a treat to be able to choose from so many dishes as a vegan who normally struggles to find one decent dish. The atmosphere is so nice here...and the food absolutely amazing, make sure you go!More

We went there because of all the good reviews, and were extremely disappointed. The service was terrible, and the staff seemed very annoyed and arrogant rather than welcoming. The food was very dry and quite tasteles, we also had to wait a long time for...it. Definitely not worth the price. They never cared to come check if we were satisfied or happy with the food either.More

Went here after a day of sightseeing because my girlfriend wanted to try the vegan svíčkova which was according to her "a small portion but delicious". I tried the vegetarian lasagne and absolutely loved it - this one's a big portion! The restaurant is definitely...on the pricier side but the food is tasty. If you dine in make sure to sit downstairs as the incense smell upstairs is very intense.More

Together with family we visited this restaurant for first time. We ordered 2 lunch menus(Kung Pao) and 1 meal ala carte. My expectations were quite high. First disappointment came when it took about half hour for meals to be served. Second problem was, that Kung...Pao was not very balanced in terms of taste. Very salty sauce with a very small portion of rice. I like it vice versa. Ala carte meal was OK. Nevertheless, staff was neat so overall impression was thanks to them not so bad, but I came here mainly because of food so can't give more than 3 stars.More

We booked for lunch today at 1430. We were running late due to traffic. I called the restaurant and the staff was ever so polite and said will keep our table till 1530. And did warn us it's their break time, so can only order...certain dishes from the menu. We had tomato - spinach lasgne and maitrea burger with fresh apple juice. It was so so tasty, good portion sizes. The staff was very friendly. Great experience.More

My father is, after all this time, still a slight skeptic when it comes to vegan food. But to this day he still raves about Maitrea. Our friends tried the burgers, the noodles, I tried their take on steamed boodles with a traditional sauce and...it was beyond delicious. Highly recommend regardless of your diet.More

One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the
medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere

Not sure about roots, but their menu has marking for ‘onion’ and ‘garlic’ for items. This might be helpful in selecting an item. Hope this helps.
