Prague is home to a vibrant food scene with restaurants that serve cuisine from all over the globe. Over the past few weeks, we’ve been scouring the best Thai cuisine in the city, part of Thai Select network.
Prague’s burgeoning food scene has seen the emergence of some top-quality Asian restaurants recently. Lemon leaf is no exception.
Located in the centre of Prague, this Thai restaurant delivers on quality and is unusual for Prague heat.
With its pleasant interior, attentive staff and buzzing atmosphere, Lemon Leaf is popular with tourists, expats, and locals so reservations are advisable.
The great value menu at lunchtime (like many Prague eateries), the weekly special main dish is normally particularly good, as is the superb Tom Yam soup.
Moreover, the sheer size actually enhances the intimacy of Lemon Leaf’s ambiance, making you feel as though you’re the only one there, even when the restaurant is full.
The large vibrant photography on the light yellow walls is just one satisfying touch of style. The staff is as hospitable as they come.
Why you should visit it
The restaurant is spacious and airy with a relaxed vibe. The prices are reasonable and the quality of the curries in particular are fantastic. The bar is well stocked with draft Czech beer and a fantastic selection of spirits. The location is great and is close to a few late bars if you wish to enjoy Prague’s vibrant nightlife.
Must-tries include the gyoza steamed spicy pork dumplings, and Mekhong Thai rum which is the perfect way to wash down the delicious food.
Try also the masaman curry with beef sirloin, pine nut, coconut milk and sweet potato or the pad thai noodles with spring onion, soy, crushed peanut and tiger prawns.
