Respond to Review of Maitrea

Review: When I read the reviews here, I was a bit suspicious. Some were very positive, others not so much so. Now, as Prague is not exactly one of the easiest cities to get a great vegan meal in a normal restaurant, I took the chance on my single free evening at a company conference to visit this restaurant. My impression was that the range of vegan options is huge (about 50% of the meals on the menu are clearly marked either as vegan or as 'possible to prepare vegan') and the food was not meh at all. In fact, it was one of the finest vegan meals I had had so far, with a nice starter (red beet salad), a wonderful main dish (thai eggplant curry that would not have been amiss in a very good thai restaurant) and a delicious rice pudding with seasonal fruit as a dessert (the seasonal fruit turned out to be mango, which was a nice touch). I can highly endorse this restaurant, with two points of note: 1) it is not very big, so making a reservation makes a lot of sense and 2) while the restaurant is open until 23:30, the kitchen actually closes at 22:00. Same as in the 'sister' restaurant 'Lehka Hlava - Clear Head' where I had found that out yesterday at 22:30, unfortunately. Even an omni colleague of mine who had accompanied me was totally impressed with his food and the ambiance.
