The place is small, and the kitchen is tiny. Seems designed to be a cafe place with eating options.
Smells as you are inside of the kitchen, which is located in the same open space with no ventilation. All the food is full with grease and oil.
The food takes AGES to come, and if you are a bigger group you are doomed. They have a small grill and even smaller over to handle all orders.
If you wanna get a bite it is ok, but not for any dining!

I am so glad one of my students recommended Kupe to me. I ended up going two nights in a row, it was so good and there was so much to choose from!
The first night I had a combination entree (you could pick 4 items and they put them on a lovely plate for you), plus a flat bread with garlic, and potato, coriander and fried vegetable curry - amazing! Had a hint of chilli. The second night I had this dish again as it was so delicious, also had a wonderful spicy rice dish that came with heaps of onion, nuts and raisins that you could mix in.
The entrees were ok - the pastry on the samosas was a little too thick but it was tasty. The highlight was the roasted eggplant strip rolled and stuffed with hummus.
The service was ok the first night but (as my student warned me) it took ages for the food to arrive and it all arrived at once (about 40 minutes). I had my book to read so wasn't bothered. The second night I was the only one there and the two waitresses were busy doing something behind the bar so took ages to take my order - but the food came much quicker this time.
They have a smoking section but it didn't smell smoky in the non-smoking section thank goodness.
They also serve alcohol and nice fruit smoothies, and have an English version of the menu.
The first night my meal plus smoothie cost 285 CZK ($16 AUD) for WAY too much food (the servings are very generous size) and the second night 246 CZK for a bit less.
The waitress even offered to box up the leftovers for me.
Thoroughly recommended, would definitely return there if I'm ever back in Brno.

Up on Veveri street near the botanical garden, this restaurant should be on the list of city attractions. I go there quite regularly for lunch, and I don't think I was offered the same option twice (in case you don't know, most restaurants in Brno have 2-3 lunch options). Kupe offers soup or dessert plus main for 80-90 Czech crowns (3-4 Euro). The regular menu is equally delicious (love the eggplant moussaka).
