Amazing Experience - Edit

For me the best vegan restaurant in my life. I loved all the food. The only thing to say.. to little options for vegan desserts.

Nice flavors, poor service - Edit

We had the vegan pesto, Cantonese tofu and wrap: beautiful flavors but the portions are too small for me.
We waited for 30 minutes for our main dish too.
Overall, a disappointing experience.

Lovely little restaurant - Edit

Beautiful restaurant with great choices of Mexican, Asian or local dishes. The restaurant is mostly booked out but we were lucky twice to get a table which was reserved for a later hour. The staff is not as organized as at the Maitrea restaurant, but they are trying to cope. The food was very tasty. Great choice! Great location not far from Charles bridge.

Pros: mix of Mexican, Asian or local dishes

Cons: very busy, so reservations are needed

One of the best we had in Prague - Edit

Had the wraps and the gyros, both were perfect, one of the best places we have been so far in Prague.

It is very full and definitely needs a reservation!

Cons: needs reservation

ok food, glutenfree&vegan options - Edit

The food was okay. Had to make a reservation to get a table.
Didnt feel like the staff understood so much english but we definetly managed to order food.

They made a mistake about the glutenfree food buy fixed it right away and gave us discount on the food. I feel like they focused on giving the customers the best service. Sad that the food was a bit tasteless. Would definetly give them another shot. :)

Good find! - Edit

I found this place after meeting up with another veggie friend who suggested we go here. I was surprised at the speed of the service, which was convenient due to not having much time.
The food was pretty cheap and I particularly enjoyed the tofoie gras. The main, which was raw cucumber noodles with pesto could have done with a little more seasoning but otherwise was good. Salt and pepper on the table never goes amiss!

Pros: Filling, Fast, Friendly

Cons: Dark

total disappointment and overrated place - Edit

I am always amazed when in vegetarian restaurant as a vegetarian I am left without food choice. From all the menu I only had one choice (unexciting salad with cheese), just because it is not possible to have a meal without onion and garlic.

Food is already prepared in advance so it is not possible that it can be adjusted to customers needs. I find that strange because people have different diets, allergies etc. In a regular restaurant that is rarely a problem and from vegetarian restaurant I would expect more understanding and flexibility.

Meals are quite small and not very filling, quite blend and nothing really special but greatly overpriced (this is opinion of 4 of us who were there for lunch and each of us had a different dish). They even charged 55 koruna (2 €) for the jug of tap water (!).

The interior of the restaurant is a bit strange, plastic tables imitating wood that are illuminated from inside (!) the room is quite dark and all in all not such a great atmosphere. I don't understand why is this restaurant so highly rated. Or it is simply living on the old glory. All in all, total disappointment.

Perhaps better for vegetarians - Edit

I’d been looking forward to trying this place after so many good reviews here, but was rather disappointed. There is a limited selection of vegan dishes on the menu. A number of others offer ‘vegan option’, but this seems to simply mean removing the non-vegan thing (on my co-diner’s gyros plate, they removed the tzatziki – and replaced it with a weird sauce that tasted like tomato paste). Even the burger they offered couldn’t be veganised; when I asked why, I was told it’s because the bread has egg in it?! (These observations may seem minor, but it would be very easy to veganise the bread and the tzatziki, thereby expanding options for all diners.)

I chose a Cantonese tofu dish, which I found to be very ordinary. I noticed only one vegan dessert on the menu – something chia-based. I had hoped the restaurant would attempt to veganise some Czech foods, but that didn’t seem to be the case. The homemade lemonade with mint was delicious, though.

Pros: Nice space, Nice wait staff, Homemade lemonade with mint

Cons: Fairly unimaginative fare, Expensive

Will definitely be back for more - Edit

I love this place! And so does my boyfriend, who isn't vegan or vegetarian :) I had an amazing spicy and sweet tofu stir fry with white rice and I had chips and guacamole as my appetizer. The tofu was perfectly fried- slightly crunchy texture on the outside, nice and light on the inside. The guac was good, too! It passed my standards of growing up with real authentic mexican food., I'll be back for sure!

A classic for a good reason - Edit

Lehka Hlava is probably the best-known veggie restaurant in Prague, and for a good reason. Even though it's probably not the most mind-blowing thing you've ever experienced, the menu is versatile, the portions are decent and all the dishes I've tried have been very tasty. I can recommend their selection of dips/spreads with bread ("Small Clear Head") to share as appetizers. There are many vegan options and the staff seems to be very aware of allergies and other special dietary needs. Lehka Hlava also has a daily lunch menu which is very affordable (135 CZK). The interior is distinctive and cosy and the location is central but peaceful.

Pros: good value, esp. for lunch, tasty food

good lunch spot - Edit

The meals were a pleasant surprise after reading the menu. They came out looking and tasting way better than the menu described. Lots of vegan options (you're able to make a lot of the veggie meals vegan). We had the vegan tacos and vegan wrap and both were really good. Between around 3pm and 5pm the menu is limited a little.

Pros: great tasting

Cons: limited menu when we were there

Nice place - Edit

Nicely thought out restaurant with seperate themed rooms, although a bit crowded on Saturday night which is to be expected. We got a table without a reservation and service was friendly and efficient. Somewhat more cramped than their sister restaurant, but a different menu which was good to see. I had tofoie gras, veganized gyros and raw chocolate cake, all perfectly nice. Lemon and honey dressing was listed on some of the vegan choices which was a little concerning, but I didn't question further. Nice place in a quiet spot.

Pros: Reasonable vegan choice, Friendly, efficient service, Atmospheric

Cons: Dado rail was dusty, Cramped

Great for a romantic meal - Edit

I really enjoyed my birthday dinner here. I couldn't decide which vegan option to have, so went for Cantonese rice with pita bread. Then had the best Chia pudding for dessert. Their ginger tea is delicious.

Pros: Chia pudding , Friendly staff , Romantic area

Cons: Hidden away , Reserve by phone only

A bit disappointed - Edit

First impressions of Lehka Hlava it is a bit small and dark.
With the limited tables, it may be a good idea to pre-book a table.
The Food was fine.
The Waiters were a bit rushed to be attentive.

Bohemian restaurant with good location - Edit

This is so cool veg-restaurant with good location. Food tastes really like self-made and staff is friendly and
thoughtful. This restaurant is popular, so it was almost all the time full of customers - so I recommend to make a reservation. Some dishes is available only at a certain time, it's a pity. We waited our desserts almost half hour, I don't know what happened, did the waiter forgot the desserts or somenthing else? We didn't bother to wait for desserts no longer, so we just took the bill and leaved.

Pros: cool restaurant, tasty food, friendly staff

Cons: need to make reservation

Great Food for a great price - Edit

I really love this place, the food is simple but delicious and the prices are right. The staff is very attentive and especially during lunch time it was possible to find a spot even though most places were occupied. Very fast order as well if you get the daily special.
