When Sansho opened in 2011, it radically redefined the local dining scene. Head chef Paul Day introduced many novel concepts to Prague's foodies, like pairing a simple, unadorned interior with highly intricate Asian-fusion cuisine, leaving the full focus on the plate. The public was initially skeptical but once they gathered around the long, communal tables, they were won over by the quality of the cooking. (Not surprising as Day learned his craft at London's Michelin-starred
Nobu.) Diners are encouraged to order a six-course tasting menu, featuring duck, pork belly, and soft-shell crab among other delicacies. Desserts, especially the sticky toffee pudding, can reflect a little of the London background.
