My partner has been on a mission to find proper Chinese food in Dublin since he moved over here from the UK and finally we found somewhere that satisfied his taste buds. Thanks to some friends who told us about this place. I ordered Chicken in Spicy Heaven with steamed rice and a glass of Chardonnay. The chicken dish was... More

Average Chinese. Starters were just on par with your classic fluro Orange straight from the bottle sause. Potions were substi though. As well with the mains. Big servings but quantity over quality for sure. I had the Singapore noodles and they were not what you would call authentic. Wouldn't rush back.

I've eater here many times and have never been disappointed. The most recent visit was rushed so we had a shared starter and a main course each. Service was, as ever, friendly and efficient and the food - especially the Korean specialities - was unusual and very tasty. Portions are substantial so don't order too much. With surprising catholicity they... More

Food was good, price was good and we got a free fizzy drink thrown in. We had take away so dodnt experience the restaurant itself but it looked busy even on a Tuesday evening and a lot nicer than the place a few doors down!

Was expecting more after reading the reviews but wasn't overly impressed with the food. Service was good and the setting is as others have said - just ok. Portion sizes were way bigger than most other Chinese restaurants but overall I don't think I'd be rushing back again.

We ate here on a Friday night based on the trip advisor reviews - we weren't disappointed! ?16 for two courses plus wine and the portions were large. Great food (not "chinese takeaway" food either). Recommend definitely.
