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.

Unattractive location , tiny tables and extremely cold. Not a great start at all but the food was................magnificent and great value and the service was good as well . The belly pork dishes were particularly nice Dinner of two including beer in Dublin was 40 euros excellent. Just bring a coat .

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.

I am so glad that we did as the food was amazing! One tip I would give is to not over order as the portion sizes are... More

As others have said this place doesn't jump out at you when walking past. In fact the waitress seemed very excited that someone from outside Dublin was in her restaurant. The Gongmadad beef was delicious as were the prawns harbour style. My only complaint was that the crispy duck wasn't crispy and was quite salty. We were the only people... More
