While the number of people throwing sushi down their necks in the city continues to grow at exponential rates, finding decent Thai restaurants in Prague is still conspicuously hard work.
Just a little way along from Karlovo Námestí (a stone’s throw from the Globe café), the Lemon Leaf is one of the city’s better stop-offs for a decent pad thai. The interior is large and sparsely decorated but the pleasant bar and buzzing atmosphere lend the place a casual, vibrant feel.
The menu mixes Thai specialities with steaks, pasta, salads and vegetarian dishes. Each day there’s a different set lunch menu and buffet (but note that at weekends the latter gets depleted somewhat swiftly). Haute cuisine ’tis not, but the spice factor is high, the prices are good and most of the Thai dishes are very tasty indeed.
