This hidden spot has some excellent Asian cuisine to offer for an unbeatable price. I would recommend that you avoid the buffet at all costs. The price may seem very attractive (150 Czech Koruna = approx. 6 euro per person) but the food they offer for it is terrible. It's rarely changed and often stale. Don't let it discourage you...

Found this place through google as I fancied a Chinese in the middle of town. You would not find by accident and it can't get much passing trade as it is in fairly grotty indoor shopping arcade with little else to attract and overly warm. Nice table on terrace in empty place which very bizarrely filled over the time I... More

This place is a total dive. Avoid at all costs. We fancied Chinese food on our last day in Prague and we suffered on the flight later that evening. The one waitress they had was so rude! I had to ask a member of staff what the meat was on the buffet. The woman didnt even know herself, saying, "I... More

Waitress was arrogant, decoration horrible and food disgusting. We tried only rice and noodles. Noodles were undercooked. You will do better even with some fastfood.

The waitress lied about the price when we asked. She said it was 149Kc including a drink then after she said it was only before 3pm even though when we asked it was already 6pm. The manager and the waitress both lie to your face. The food was horrendous, both in option and quality. Lots of mystery meats or whatever,... More

I visited the restaurant once, and, as the food wasn't so bad - albeit nothing magnificent - I went back there today for what I thought would be a quick lunch. Had been waiting FORTY-FIVE MINUTES for some fried rice with chicken before I upped to leave - although the waitress had assured me it was on its way -... More

Went to this restaurant for a quick group dinner with friends. Menu is very extensive and have everything, quite suspicious. The restaurant is the most fake, kitsch and old you can imagine. I start to suspect it will be a bad dinner. I was so right. Asked for stir fried noodle with vegetables and a glass of water. The noodle... More

I picked this to celebrate my 67th birthday, we picked two chicken dishes I am sorry to say it was the biggest mistake going there, the food was dreadful and uneatable and it went in the bin .I could not recommend this place to eat ever.

According to my experience (from many countries) "all you can eat" types of restaurant provide under-average food. But this was surprise anyway. There was absolutly nothing positive about the food except amount you can eat. But who would eat a lot of food of such bad quality.

I read couple of reviews before coming there and there were amazing ones and terrible ones. So we decided to give it a try. The place was crowded so we started to believe the good reviews until we paid and saw the food. We had to pay in advance. Usually I try a bit of everything but I could not... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods 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 of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
