A Group of 8 old friends - all female - visited here for our annual get together. Seems the restaurant has changed hands. Food cold - staff shortage - no heating and 2 year old child running around at 11pm. This was once 'the place' to go. Obvious change of ownership and not for the better. Should have suspected as...

After a long break we decided to revisit what was a regular restaurant for us. We were greeted indifferently which was in stark contrast to the warm Asian welcome we had previously experienced. It seems the restaurant has changed hands. We sat to be handed a plethora of menus which were left in a pile on the table. 8.30pm on... More

I had a very good takeaway on a recent visit to Newbridge - beef panang and rice, for about eight euro, I think.

Does the job as an Asian take away, but they had a brilliant chef there ages ago, then they got a new one who was POOR. This new one is better but still not as good as it was. Disappointing as I grew up with alot of Asian cuisine and it WAS the best I could get outside of Dublin.

The restaurant is very cheap, mains and deserts are less than take away. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is always good. Can be quiet during the week, but is busier on the weekends. food is great.

This restaurant has changed hands about six months ago. The new owners Mai and Frankie are a friendly young couple who with a baby girl are starting out on the Asian gastronomic route. The food is beautiful and lacks the dreaded MSG. I know because im a barometer for same. I am a curry, satay, noodles type diner. As befits... More

I have eaten Chinese food all over the world including China- and You simply have to sample the food here. Food is cooked perfectly right at your table. teppanyaki food nothing like the normal takeaway I am more accustomed to but was absolutely out of this world. Filet steak was so tender and the garlic and chilli sauce sublime:-)
