Prague, known as 'the heart of Europe' and 'the mother of cities', is a wonderful mix of cobblestone streets, walled courtyards, cathedrals, and countless spires of churches and castles. There is a certain magic in the air that flows effortlessly through the Old Town Square, towards the Charles Bridge, over the Vltava and up to the tallest towers of Prague Castle.
Through gastronomy we can find the purest essence of any destination. In the Czech Republic, the culinary art has become as versatile, eclectic, and varied as its magnificent buildings.
Using only the freshest products, much of which comes from local Czech farmers, the Spices restaurant at the beautiful Mandarin Oriental Prague hotel offers a culinary journey through Asia in the heart of Prague.
The menu shows the great variety of ingredients and flavors found throughout the continent, with all the dishes beautifully presented in a traditional Asian way. From exquisite rolls of Peking duck with water chestnuts, bamboo, and cucumber, to delicious Rendang beef ribs with coconut, turmeric, lemongrass rice, and chili – this culinary Eden transports us to through the senses.
Located in the heart of Prague's picturesque Lesser Town, the Spices Restaurant & Bar offers an innovative selection of delicious Asian dishes and delicious cocktails. With an environment as inspiring as its menu, Spices' impressive Renaissance vaulted ceiling and contemporary design provide the perfect setting for the exceptional cuisine of executive chef Stephen Senewiratne.
By adding beautiful modern touches to the historical bones of this ancient monastery, the design of Spices represents a harmonious balance of cultures, reflecting both the past and present of the city, as well as the Asian roots of Mandarin Oriental.
Combined with the exciting culinary direction of the restaurant, Spices is the rising star of the Prague restaurant scene, which is included annually in the Michelin Guide book and attracts guests and locals alike.
Housed within an ancient 14th century monastery, Mandarin Oriental, Prague is both a five-star luxury hotel and a wonderfully preserved piece of history.
Prague presents itself to us as a changing destination that plays with our senses and constantly alternates in style; it is old and modern, romantic and chaotic, cosmopolitan and charming – all at once.
