poor service - Edit

We were so excited to go here and try the lovely looking menu. However, the service and the vibe were cold, unwelcoming and disappointing. When we arrived, we had to ask 3 different staff members before we were finally directed to our (reserved) table, which was underneath the kitchen's fan, in a small corridor: dark, dim and noisy. Our waitress was unsmiling and standoffish when we asked if we could possibly move to one of the unoccupied tables. Our food came quickly (almost too quickly, as to make us question how fresh it was) and was nothing to write home about. Not once did the staff check on us once we had received our food. After half an hour of waiting to be approached and trying to catch the servers' eyes, we had to get up and ask for the bill, which then took another 10 minutes to come.

The food was not bad, but not amazing. Had the atmosphere and the staff been positive, inviting and friendly this wouldn't have mattered.

A disappointment.

Cons: atmosphere, staff, service

My favourite place in city center - Edit

Great place, amazing location, dreamy interior and tasty dishes. I have eaten in Maitrea many many many times and always were happy with my food and quality of service. As I read a lot of people complain about the price- well as Maitreya is located right in the heart of the city, it cant be some cheap eatery and if you compare prices with neighbouring restaurants then is Maitreya one of the cheaper options. Cheers and make sure you go:)

classic czech cuisine made vegetarian - Edit

the only thing i tried was "svíčková na smetaně" with bread dumplings, a very strange local dish. it was one of the strangest things i've ever eaten, but it was delicious and i was happy to try something local.

from what i've noticed vegetarian places in Prague tend to serve very healthy and often raw food, so it was great to find a place with "normal" stuff made veggie.

Pros: czech dishes, tasty, lots of options

not impressed - Edit

came here for my birthday because i heard good things about this place - and yes, the interior is beautiful, feels like sitting in a fairy world or something and the staff are super polite.. but we were waiting for more than an hour for our food to arrive.. and when it did arrive, it was nothing special considering the prices.. we had a selection of starters, which were very bland, my friend had a burger which was super dry.. i had some noodles which were quite nice actually, but i don't think i'm coming back, as there are so many other, better options in prague,

Pros: central location, beautiful interior , polite staff

Cons: waiting way too long for the food, limited vegan options, food is a hit or miss - not worth the prices here

Good food, kind staff - Edit

Food was really good here! I got the pate starter and a veganized goulash main dish. The staff seem to have lost my goulash order because I waited a very long time for it, but they made it up to me with the raw apple strudel. Yum!

not really impressed - Edit

I liked the menu and the interior, but the food was rather average. We tried the selection of appetizers, which was nice, but we only got two peaces of toast with hummus, guacamole, paté and it was not enough. As a main courses, we ordered stirfry and tex max quesadilla. Portions were not big and I can't say it was something special. I also think the place is a little overpriced. To be honest, I expected something more.

Pros: menu, interior

Kung pao - Edit

I thried some vegan kung paos before, but this one was really the best. Dont know shy but the taste, the sauce was special in something. You have to ask fot it to be vegan not just vegetarian. Carefull with chilly, they put big pieces so cou can easy skip them. ;)

Really Delicious - Edit

Maitrea is a beautiful restaurant with lovely decor and a unique atmosphere. It's fairly large, with two floors, and a very extensive menu with everything labelled with symbols - what is vegan, what can be made vegan, what is gluten free, what is raw, etc.

There was a little trouble with our reservation - they apparently mixed it up, so we did not have a table, but they accommodated us as quickly as they could, and we only ended up waiting about 15 minutes. Reservations are definitely a must here. My friends and I ordered the Maitrea burgers, and I had mine made vegan. It came out fairly quickly, despite how busy they were. The vegan version had a special bun, and came without cheese. It was very delicious!

Pros: Delicious food, Great labelling system

Cons: Reservation was messed up, Reservations required

Maitrea - The best! - Edit

My girlfriend and I took a short break to Prague from the UK recently. Having tried around 10 restaurants for both lunch and dinner meals, we found Maitrea was the most enjoyable!

Friendly service combined with out of this world food made for a wonderful experience that left me wanting more.

The only negative is that there isn't a Maitrea in the UK!

Pros: Incredibly welcoming staff, Tasty food, Good portion size

Cons: There is not one in the UK!

Overrated - Edit

I think this place is aimed mainly on tourists (which isn't necessarily bad), which means it is bit overpriced compared to other restaurants in Prague. The food is not amazing and portions are average. Most of the foods is only vegetarian. Staff is not really friendly and looks at you weird when you ask about vegan food. I wasn't happy with drinks offer.

Pros: Some interesting dishes

Cons: Mostly vegetarian, Overpriced
