Located in the heart of the picturesque Lesser Town, Spices Restaurant & Bar offers an inventive selection of delicious Asian dishes and mouth-watering cocktails. With a setting as inspiring as the menu, Spices’ stunning Renaissance-style vaulted ceiling and contemporary design provides the perfect backdrop for Executive Chef Zdeněk Křížek’s exceptional cuisine.
By adding beautiful modern touches to the historic bones of this former monastery, Spices’ design represents a harmonious balance of cultures, reflecting both the city’s past and present, and Mandarin Oriental’s Asian roots. Combined with the restaurant’s exciting culinary direction, Spices is the rising star of Prague’s restaurant scene, annually listed in the Michelin Guide book and attracting both guests and locals alike.
As a stand-alone destination, Spices’ bar serves a mix of classic and contemporary cocktails, alongside a wide choice of wines, beers and non-alcoholic drinks.
Using only the freshest produce, much of it sourced from local Czech farmers, Spices' menu offers a culinary journey through Asia. Served family-style in the middle of the table, the menu showcases the wide variety of ingredients and flavours found throughout the continent, with all dishes beautifully presented in a traditional Asian manner.
Chef Zdeněk Křížek first discovered Asian cuisine, whilst working at at Hotel Jalta in Prague. It was here that he fell in love with the Japanese speciality teppanyaki, which is prepared using a barbecue grill in front of guests. After four years, Chef Křížek moved to Boscolo Hotels where he honed his culinary skills for another three years, before joining Mandarin Oriental, Prague in 2006.
Over the last decade, Chef Křížek has gained valuable experience and a deep insight into Asian cuisine from time spent at our hotels in China, Malaysia and Japan.
Accompanying Chef Zdeněk Křížek in the kitchen, sous chef Ondřej Hutník has also travelled widely throughout Asia. Using their unique knowledge and skills, the culinary team are proud to bring authentic Asian flavours to the table.
