Siam Orchid

Thai in Nové Město

The setting – a scatter of plastic tables and chairs on a 1st-floor balcony hidden up a passage beside a department store – looks none too promising, but this tiny restaurant, tucked away beside a Thai massage studio, offers some of the city’s most authentic Thai cuisine.

From the crisp, grease-free po-pia thot (spring rolls with pork and black mushrooms) to the fiery kaeng khiao wan kai (chicken in green curry with basil), pretty much everything on the menu is a delight.
