According to the restaurant’s website, Maitrea Buddha is translated as loving kindness. This is reflected when you take a look at the menu of vegetarian, vegan foods, various drinks and the design of the whole place, which keeps the principles of feng shui. The Buddha’s fountain which you can find downstairs adds to a calm yet vibrant atmosphere.
It can be hard to try a traditional Czech meal if you are vegetarian. However Maitrea’s menu offers traditional Czech cuisine that you can taste even if you are not a meat lover. The menu changes according to season but if you’re a fan of Mexican cuisine, the selection of burritos and quesadillas and the their guacamole will delight your taste buds.
Maitrea is located really close to Old Town Square so if you are looking for a place to go, want to experience something different and want to avoid the tourist traps that the Old town is full of, Maitrea would be a great choice. I would recommend making a reservation as the place is really popular. And don’t forget, if you happen to be an ordained clergy, a monk or an enlightened person you will eat for free!
