Bamboo, wood, paper, incense—and the random creepy mask on the wall—are all part of the decor at this earthy hilltop hideaway near Prague Castle. Spring rolls, vegetable and mixed stir-fries, fish, and chicken dishes come in generous portions.

This restaurant was one of the first in the city with a no-smoking policy—a rarity in Prague—so the aromas are
pure. It's as much about the atmosphere as the food here, which isn't complex but is cooked with heart.
