Dim Sum Spot

Address: 3 branches in Prague: Palackého 110, Anděl (Lidická 653/25), Letná (M. Horákové 806/29)

Dim sum is an integral part of Chinese cuisine (and a bit of an addiction for those who have tried it), so it is no wonder that this dumpling paradise is highly popular among locals. In the pleasant environment of the three branches of this Chinese restaurant, you can enjoy different types of dim sum (meat, vegan and some special combinations) served in authentic bamboo steam bowls. There are also a variety of sauces to choose from and, of course, the tea which is traditionally served with Chinese dumplings. At lunchtime, you can also choose a menu of 8 or 10 dumplings and soup.

Hua Long Zhai

Address: Oblouková 944, Prague 10

With another tip for Chinese restaurants in Prague, we head to Vršovice. There is a spot that is also renowned for its Chinese dumplings, even so much so that the restaurant offers them for sale in frozen form. The interior is rather old-fashioned, somewhat "tired”, but the charismatic owner, a chef and martial arts instructor in one person gives this place an incredible energy and creates a truly homey atmosphere. The portions are large, the prices very reasonable and you'll get a pot of Chinese tea free of charge with your meal. In addition to dumplings, there are several other traditional dishes on the menu and an all-you-can-eat buffet during lunchtime.

Chi Xiao Mian

Address: Laubova 1659/2, Prague 3-Vinohrady

Kung pao, chicken of xy tastes or eight treasures, or “M1-30”... you won't find any of these at this Chinese restaurant in the heart of Prague's district Vinohrady. Yet, you won't be disappointed. On the contrary! Authentic Chinese cuisine awaits you, starring a bowl of xiao mian, a dish typical of southwest China, where the restaurant's founder, Wen, comes from. After all, it was the desire to bring a piece of her homeland to Prague that contributed to the establishment of this business. In addition to authentic ingredients imported directly from China, they pay attention to every detail to ensure the perfect dining experience: from genuine Chinese porcelain, to the serving style to the choice of background music. Expect exotic flavours ranging from spicy to very hot (although the spiciness can be adjusted) and an experience that will satisfy and warm not only your body but also your soul.

Hong Kong Karlín

Address: Thámova 221/7, Prague 8

Hong Kong is a sharp contrast to some Chinese restaurants and bistros in Prague with their shabby signs and shop windows, which tend to put people off at first sight rather than entice them in. In the modern industrial space of a former joinery, you can enjoy traditional recipes spiced up with a twist of modern trends. Most dishes are shareable, making it ideal for a group visit. Don't expect an authentic Chinese atmosphere, however, if you like trying new combinations, you won't be disappointed.
