“Excellent food and atmosphere. A don't miss!”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

I've been eating here every time I come to Prague for over 10 years. The atmosphere is so mellow, the lighting is low, and the décor is fabulous with such attention to detail. Food is very good, lot of veg options, and dishes are mostly Vietnamese and Thai style. I often go for the Thai style fried noodles with chicken. It full of fresh herbs and comes mild--you can add your own heat with the condiment provided. They also have a wonderful selection of juices, teas and cocktails. The service is good and the owner is quite friendly and usually on hand. A small selection of trinkets is for sale near the door. A great place to take a break from the heavier Czech fare. And don't miss the view over the city across the street!

Definitely worth the hike as this place rocks.We loved our food and even more the ambience,wchich is nothing like many of the commercial touristic places in Prague.
We were just very happy there and we felt treated with smile and optimism which also isn t always norm in Prague.

“Thai atmophere”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Everything in this place recalls Thailand, specially the interiors. Food is really good and denifitely cheap. Portion are so huge and service is so fast! Let me point out that this restaurant in the only one in the area of Loreta Church. All around you can find just fastfood or bad turistic czech restaurants.

“Good atmosphere, good food.”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

This restaurant was a little out of the way so we worked out that we would be closest to it after visiting Prague castle. Unfortunately it is at the top of another hill so unless you are looking to build up an appetite, grab a taxi. The restaurant itself has a unique appearance and looks worlds away from the Prague scenery outside, it really set the mood for the meal. We had a Vietnamese Phó with glass noodles and a sweet and sour fish dish (can't remember the name sorry.) Both meals we're fantastic in quality and quantity! The desserts we're a little underwhelming after the fantastic mains but this was a great experience on the whole.

“Great break from the heavy food. Wonderful atmosphere.”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Being from Thailand, we are use to great Asian food. The food here was pretty good. But not what you would get in Asia. I guess that is to be expected. Pizza here is nothing like what we get in NYC either.

With that being said, we were very happy with our food. A great break from goulash. And the atmosphere is fantastic. We stayed for over 2 hours just relaxing and chatting.

The owner is a very nice guy and very attentive. I would recommend this restaurant.
