Vegetarian Restaurant Guide

Meat-free eating in Prague, with Henrik's handy guide

A lot of people seem to think rohlíks are the only vegetarian food to be found in Prague. Fortunately, though, there are plenty of places to choose from, and I've listed a few of them here.

To keep the list focused on restaurants that specialize in vegetarian food or have a good selection of vegetarian food in addition to their regular menu, I've chosen not to list those pizzerias, Chinese restaurants and pasta places that have vegetarian options.

In addition to the restaurants below, I suggest you check out some of the categories in our dining section -- Indian, Pakistani, Mediterranean, Thai, Mexican... most of them have at least a few vegetarian options.

Orlická 9, Prague 3
Phone: 222 728 885
Metro: Flora (line A)
Tram: Radhošťská

Run by Krishna devotees, Balarama serves no-frills Indian cuisine similar to Govinda's. The food is more sweet than it is spicy. Open until 8pm. Closed on weekends. Packed around lunch-time.

Týnská 19, Prague 1
No Phone
Metro: Náměstí Republiky (line B)
Tram: Náměstí Republiky

Inexpensive and conveniently located Indian restaurant, just around the corner from Old Town Square. You can get a big plate or small plate of the daily special or get something from their menu. Has a bit of fast-food feel to it. During the day you can take your meal outside and eat in the yard.

Country Life
Melantrichova 15, Prague 1
Phone: 224 213 366
Metro: Můstek (line A & B)
Tram: Národní třída

One of Prague's most popular vegetarian diners, located midway between Můstek and Old Town Square. They have several types of veggie burgers to take away, and a large inexpensive buffet with fresh greens and several hot dishes if you have time to sit down. There's also a small health-food store next door, with the town's biggest selection of tofu sausages.

Country Life
Jungmannova 1, Prague 1
Phone: 224 191 739
Metro: Národní třída (line B)

There's an 11% discount after 3pm and a 50% discount after 4:30pm but be sure to hurry - they close at 5pm. There's also a bakery/organic food store next door, and a second location in Prague 8.

"Highly recommend Dahab, Lehka Hlava & Architektu -- all reasonable, good atmosphere and friendly service (a rarity in Praha)"

"Maly Buddha is actually a Vietnamese restaurant, not Thai, and it is over 120 CZK per head. I had the Buddha special that was priced 180 CZK. The food was very good, while the restaurant has a very calm and serene atmosphere. Highly recommended."
