Lots of Asian restaurants are having the same issue: huge menu, no speciality. This is the same case: Chinese, Korean, Thai and more. Yes, the food was nice. Same taste as you'll find in most of the Asian places. The price was good. The hall was really basic, not for romantic dates. If I'll be around and hungry, I'll go... More

You'd walk past this Chinese restaurant without noticing it, the decor isn't great but the food is delicious. We have been many times and it doesn't disappoint, this is definitely my favourite Chinese in Dublin.

We tried this restaurant due to the trip advisor reviews and the food was nice but this didn't make up for the surroundings and the place did smell a bit fusty. We both had a coke and we got charged two euros each for cans that said part of a multi pack dont sell individually. If a few hundred euros... More

Went here on Friday evening as was staying nearby and saw good reviews for it. We both got a Satay and was very disappointing. Not very flavorsome and for €12 each which does not include rice or chips was very dear. We got a portion of Chips on the side which was €3 extra. The place is a little on... More

After reading great reviews on TripAdvisor my girlfriend and I decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed in anyway. The food is really good authentic Asian cuisine. The staff are friendly and efficient and we have never had a problem getting seats. It's always a good sign when the local Asian community eat in a restaurant. I... More

Was in the area and looking for some quick food, after a quick look on T.A. I decided on this place. Judging by the clientele the food here must be authentic as i was the only non Asian customer (usually a good sign) The portions in this place are massive, I made a good stab of my sizzling chicken satay...

Using Trip Advisor we discovered a highly rated Chinese restaurant only about 3 blocks from our hotel. The website said they were open until “12 am.” At 10 pm, some two hours before closing time we went down to the lobby of our hotel to confirm our idea of getting Chinese at this hour. The concierge said that the neighborhood... More
