We have made a reservation for 2 on a winter evening on the back of the many good reviews we've seen on tripadvisor. We were well aware of the heavy Asian influence, however was still looking forward to a creative menu with fresh ingredients. It turned out to be a huge disappointment, food was prepared to an ok standard however they are just ordinary food that you would find in a Chinese/pan Asian restaurant, no more and hugely over priced given what was on offer. It wasn't at all special, unique or creative. We decided to cut short our dinner after 5 starters as it was really disappointing and we didn't think it was worth the money or time to carry on
Upon arrival we've been explained that it would be a fixed price 6 course menu with no choices available for 900 czk. The first course was salmon sashimi soaked in sesame oil and sprinkled with pink peppercorn. It wasn't bad and the sesame oil gave it a nice kick, nevertheless it's salmon sashimi, probably the most simple dish you would find at a Japanese restaurant.
Second dish was the soft shell crab burger. It was deep fried soft shell crab with wasabi mayo wrapped in white bun that normally comes with Peking duck. Probably the most creative dish we've seen for the night. But again nothing you wouldn't have tasted before from a typical Japanese restaurant even across Europe.
The third dish was goza. Nothing different from what you would get from a dim sum restaurant. It was well made but probably something you can get for 3 Euro a dish at a typical Chinese place. Next up was fried clams in crispy garlic/onion with beef tendon. The clams weren't properly cleaned and portion was tiny. Probably the biggest letdown of the night. After 4 rather mediocre dishes we were contemplating leaving.
We had the fifth dish which was crispy pork belly and broccoli in a sweet sauce. The pork belly was quite well cooked and had a good texture, but the sauce was way too salty and strong.
All in I have to say these were slightly above medium Chinese dishes, and nothing wrong with it if you are an Asian food fan, however definitely not something you would expect from a 30 Eur plus degustation menu. I would say the food was overpriced even at half the price.
Have to say though the waiters were helpful and accommodating when we requested to cancel the order after the fifth course. We were charged about 500 Czk each for the five courses we've had.
