Average in every sense of the word

The service is good and prices reasonable. The central location helps and food quality was average. There is nothing here to bring us back for more.

I really enjoyed my meal here. Very reasonably priced tasty food. Service was a bit slow but to be considering we had a large table it could have been worse. Very polite nice staff

What I like about the Plaza Restaurant in Swords is the consistency of quality. I have been there four time and the food has always been of a ver high standard for a very reasonable price.

Nice way to pass an hour if you have the time and the inclination with plenty of options for coffee and food breaks.

I've had take away from the restaurant twice now. I'm not from Dublin so it's not very often that I'm in the area but when I am (mostly for airport pick ups) I really like this Chinese for a take away. I have only ever had the duck with plum sauce and chips but I loved it each time. The... More

Went on a Saturday night and 4 of us had the 5 course special. All of us agreed the food was super and all the drinks were cheap.

We were staying nearby and thought we would try here for a meal. Outside was grand and when we entered we were immediately shown our table and giving glasses of water and prawn crackers. We looked at the menu and were gob-smacked by the prices - not what we are used too at home!!! Very expensive and food quality was... More
