I booked a private room for 12 people for my birthday, and I can say that everyone enjoyed it thoroughly! If you spend 200 euro or more in total as a group you can book a room, which has a large table with a glass spinning plate, and it also has free karaoke. The food was excellent, especially the banana... More

Very good food, very helpful staff. Our first time trying this restaurant and first time trying Korean BBQ. As many reviewers have said, the main course portions are enormous. The BBQ for 2 is easily enough for 4. Not like your regular "Chinese takeaway", in fact nothing like it. Don't be put off by the location or the decor, you... More

I've been dining in this place for years and though it does not look like much from the outside, the food they serve is ridiculously good!! Another telltale sign it is proper Asian food is the fact just how many Asian people dine there. So if you're in the city Centre you should definitely pay them a visit.

Seated quickly, but but it took a while to get the floor staffs attention again to order. But then the food came very quick. And there was lots of it. My dish was fine, sweet and sour chicken. Although I could have done with a steak knife to cut the chicken, which was battered. My partners dish of beef in... More

This is the best Chinese restaurant I have ever eaten in. The food is perfect, staff is always very helpful and they can even customize your meal. If you ask for more spicy or made the way it is eaten by Asian - just ask. The best thing about the restaurant is that many Asians visit this place, so the... More

This is not a fancy pants restaurant, but the staff, food and atmosphere of this place were really great. We were fascinated by seeing some oriental diners cooking their own barbeque in the middle of their table, so just had to give it a go and we were not disappointed. A bucket of hot coal was deposited in the well... More

Hilan is a great family restaurant in the heart of Dublin. The food and staff are great. My 4 year old loves it too. Sometimes it's hard to get a table but always worth the wait. Portions are large so order wisely.

This Chinese restraint is in my opinion the very best I have ever been in, from the moment we entered we were warmly greeted by what I can only say is a truly nice girl ( didn't get her name) she was very friendly and extremely professional. We dined on the first floor in a small function room which was... More
