Square Meal – Prague Restaurant Guide

Square Meal



Jan Ghane Tabrizi

Huang He

A shimmering, white floor, sparkling white walls and ceiling greet you when you enter this suburban eatery. The raised-ground floor setting, in a grand, corner building lets in plenty of daylight. A monumental water-colour of a stormy sea – with waves crashing down takes pride of place. On another wall a mythical cockrel fights dragon with claws drawn and tail curling – not a fair match. The remainder of the space is, for the most part, unembelished and restrained in it’s decoration – allowing guests to enjoy the lightness and openness of the setting. The extensive seating capacity means you’re pretty sure to get a table.

An interesting, modern touch, is the open-kitchen which gives guests the opportunity to observe the chefs at work. Despite the extensive menu choice most dishes are prepared with speed and agility. And the gentle and friendly service means that every dish comes with a smile.
