Viet/Czech (con)fusion?

Buffet style vegan/vegetarian Chinese food. Salty and heavy with little emphasis on fresh vegetables or warmth. That being said, the food was *mostly* decent, some highlights being the faux beef, and the beet/carrot gallettes, despite the food being generally tepid and overseasoned. This is cash only however, and although the staff is friendly enough, communicating May be difficult if you don't speak Czech; unless your hungry and in the neigbourhood, it's not really worth the trip out this far from the center. Prices were decent, but overall I give it a big "meh".

Came here on new years eve, the owner was kind enough to let us in and serve us even when they are closing. The food is decent and relatively quick to serve, unlike previously reviewer's experience, non-disposable china were used.
we had veggie chicken, veggie sushi, spring roll and noodle soup.

Pros: friendly staff/ owner, decent food , cheap
Cons: no English menu/ have to relay on picture to order

Friendly People

I had read about this place on happycow, and here's my Vegetka review.

First impression was very nice. The space was peaceful, clean, and pleasantly decorated. There is a wall of photo menu which helped since we could not read the Czech only menu. Prices were very cheap.

We ordered a noodles roll, a tofu and tomatoes dish, and a plate of seaweed sushi rolls. The food took a while to prepare was served on thin disposable plastic plates. That puzzled me a bit since I felt that the space was rather nice, but the disposal ware made the food feel like fast food and rather cheap instead. It changed the feeling of the experience.

My suggestion would be that the restaurant uses real plates or even hard non-disposal plastic ones. It will make the dining experience better.

Pros: friendly service, nice atmosphere
Cons: disposable plates & utensils

Not very good...

I visited this restaurant once (approx. a year ago) and don't plan on coming back. The food is not very tasty; you can get much better meal in some regular Vietnamese/Chinese restaurants if you pick something with vegetables only. It's keenly priced BUT I'd rather eat something more expensive but tastier. The atmosphere was weird and the Asian guy working & cooking there as well.

Pros: good prices
Cons: not a very good food

Special vegan

Such a cozy little hideaway out of the centre of town. Just a short walk from Dejvicka. Owner Mr Chen is very nice and speaks good english. I had the sushi and got biiiig pieces, my 10-bit-plate was more of an 20-bit-plate. My boyfriends noodle-soup was gigantic so you will be full after a visit. They sell alcohole-free beer, ginger beer and sodas. Also various green teas.

Pros: vegan, big portions, friendly owners


I Heart Vegetka

thank my lucky stars for Happy Cow. before moving to praha from toronto for a year, a friend told me about this site. it has been my "bible" for eating well and healthily.

tonite i had my first meal @ Vegetka. and i'm going back tomorrow. the place has peaceful energy, modest decor. it's true, there is no menu in english - but the owner, Guo, was so friendly and helpful, that i had no problem choosing my first meal: pumpkin soup to start - and then a REALLY YUMMY dish of rice, tofu cubes, tomatoes, shitake mushrooms, and peas. on the menu, it's #8.Tofu s houbami šitake(rajcaty a hráškem,rýže)

the meal was very affordable. i learned all about Master Ching Hai. even bought a really great, bright yellow cotton bag that has a very positive pro-vegetarian, pro-green, pro-love message on it printed w/ pink ink and outlined in gold glitter. And! i met my very first praha friend (i'm here studying film for a year w/ a lot of international students). she told me she eats @ Vegetka almost every day.

it was such a positive experience. i can't wait for tomorrow's dinner there!

thank you Happy Cow!
your website is a Blessing, here in the land of meat, beer and cheese - all things i avoid.

happy, happy!

In my point of view, this restaurant is a quite and lovely place to visit(non-smoking,non-drinking).Of course it looks like fast foods dishes but Asian style . There, you can enjoy many kinds of teas from Asian , for example Chinese one. Try once ?

Pros: friendly staff
