The latest culinary craze to hit the city has resulted in a slurry of sushi restaurants in Prague over the past few years. Many of these offer average fare and are set inside sterile shopping centres. Yami, a Japanese and Korean restaurant, successfully manages to combine a down-to-earth yet intimate atmosphere with authentic cuisine.
Just a short walk from Old Town Square (and dangerously close to the Triangle of Sin), the interior is immediately appealing, with its simple orange and black décor, abundance of foliage and beaming chefs. Both the Korean and sushi menus tick all the expected boxes: wakame and miso soup, nigiri, maki and hand-rolled sushi are on offer, as well as Korean specialties that include grilled pork with vegetables, seaweed omelettes with spring onion and spicy fish soup, and most importantly, kim-chee with decent amounts of chilli.
While prices are fairly high, they’re no higher than the other sushi joints in town and the selections here are fresh and flavourful.
