Small but enough! - Edit

This small bistro, in the centre of the city, offers both vegetarian and vegan options (vegetarian meals are more frequent). The prices are the lowest you can imagine and they are adequate to the quality of food. Oaza offers traditional Czech meals with healthier options and also some international foods like tortillas etc. The philosophy is to buy-eat-go, so there is no place to sit so for some this might be a huge minus, especially in the rush hours. But overall, Oaza is good option where to eat in Brno!

Pros: Non-smoking, Quick, Cheap

Cons: Too crowded during rush hours, No sitting area

The cheapest bistro I´ve ever been to. - Edit

Great choice if you don´t have much (or any) money. Meals usually cost about 50 czk each!!!
Not every food is vegan, but there are usually some possibilities. Oaza is more bistro than restaurant (no chairs, only counters where people eat). It isn´t a high class cuisine, but it´s kind of place, where you eat (or take away the food) when you hurry. Food is quite healthy (some veg protein + wholemeal side-dish, buckwheat, millet...personally I hate it, but for this price? :D) and I think that it is really tasty as well.
You need to try it on your own, but I think, that there is no cheaper bistro in Brno (and all Czech Republic as well?) and I appreciate the equality of price, quality and quantity.

Pros: THE CHEAPEST!!!, fast service, ideal whe you hurry

Cons: No possibility to sit and eat, common interior

Great choice if you don't have much money to spent - Edit

Oáza is dining room/canteen - there is just two chairs and one table (mostly old people sit on this chairs), other eat in the desk across the whole place and need to be standing while eating. But there is no problem to take the food with you and eat it in nearby park for example.

The food is very cheap, so it's possible to eat here every day for working people or students (that's why this place is crowded around 12-1 pm).

I always enjoyed my dish - it's normal cuisine (I personaly also use frozen vegetable or vegetable from tin when cooking at home), I think the taste of the food is great - I wouldn't be able to cook it better, so I was always perfectly satisfied.

Don't be scared of the place and go there :)

Hard to rate - Edit

Oaza on Slovakova street is a hard place to rate. On the one hand this this ideal place to eat when you're poor student and want to be sure that your meal is vegan - food is cheap (cca 1E for meal), hot and marked properly. You can choose between 2-3 soups and 5-7 main dishes. And the food is not bad at all! This is one of very few places which serve buckwheat. The food is trying to pretend traditional meals and their taste. Food is marked with M for milk, V for egg (sorry, Czech word is vejce), S for sugar and L for gluten. That's enough to find the good combination.
But: there is no place to seat - you eat standing. The food isn't made from fresh vegetables - soups contain frozen mixes, base of every meal is quasimeat (soya, tofu, klaso, robi) + typical sauce + rice/buckwheat/knedlik (dumpling). There is salat (mostly cabbage), but with sugar. Nutritionally nothing to be proud of. Spices: sugar, salt and pepper. Around 12-1pm it can be full od people
Maybe now you can see why it's so difficult to rate. It's good but not really healthy. It's average, but not a culinary orgasm. It's finally cheap, which makes this good destination for everyday eating (definitely better than bread and bread).
I would say: in between the price and quality given - Oaza is excellent.

Pros: price, variety, vegan option

Cons: nowhere to seat, way of preparing food
