This tiny, casual, family-run place, just a short walk into Vinohrady from the Muzeum metro station, is big on coziness. Just a handful of tables makes reservations essential and gives any meal here an intimate feel. The traditional knock on this place is that they've toned down the spices to appeal to local sensibilities, but I have had some excellent dishes here, particularly the butter chicken. To save on cash, try the lunchtime buffet, with soup, starter and a selection of four main courses for 110 Kč.
