Theyve recently expanded and the front looks different to what the picture is. Look for an orange building. The staff are very kind and they cook the food for you if you have bbq. Food was delicious but pricey for what you get. Had two dishes between 3 people. Cant wait to go again.

We were a bit thorn if write a review or not as we wanted to keep this place for ourselves. Probably it is the best Asian food in town and we hope it ll stay like that. The dumplings are just amazing and the portion are much more than generous. High recommended!!!

Went here with a few friends a few weeks ago. I wasn't even that hungry but the food was so good I couldn't stop eating! It's a modest little place on Capel street, and doesn't look too enticing from the outside but it's so worth it. The waitresses are so lovely and helpful. There were loads of Korean diners so...

The interior is small enough, but they use the space well. It's snug without the tables being completely on top of each other. The decor is a little shabby, but I think it adds to the experience. On both occasions I had the Bibimbap, man I love that dish and here in Arisu it's excellent. You can BYOB and they... More

Had ordered BBQ for two people. It was well worth it. Food was fresh and tasty. Service was brilliant. Also a special mention to Bue, one of the waitress working that day. Will definitely be back.

great foods and service! For me this is the best Korean BBQ in Dublin compare to those mixed Chinese and Korean restaurants in Dublin.

Was a regular to the Korean barbeque but think I will give it a miss for now - the food has slipped in its quality - normally the food is very tasty with some interesting flavours but had the misfortune to order the meal box and it was the most untasteful experience - the same flavour as a mild stew....

We were going to this restaurant since the year it was open. Saw few changes. Unfortunatelly not for the best. Firstly, the BBQ before used to be a real experience with REAL charcoal - now it is gas. The charm is no longer there. Secondly the tables were changed to IKEA and the restaurant lost it's unique look. :-( The... More

I didnt get a chance to try the BBQ but it looked just like the ones in South Korea. I highly recommend this place and try the Black Noodles or in korean jajang meon. I can't believe I found this place, it's small but cousy and the service there is good, I mean they speak english. The food is enough... More

I have been eating at Arisu several times this year. The food is great, the price is very cheap, and the quantity is quite important (real asian restaurant, not an europeanized asian restaurant). You can even eat Korean BBQ (quite typical in Korea) like you do in Seoul ! The only down-side of this restaurant is your clothes will smell... More
