Parents just moved to Athy, planned to bring us to Clanard Hotel but it was closed. Drove blindly into Athy, noticed a light on and the word "buffet". Went upstairs on the off-chance they'd take us, was so happily surprised to see such a magnificent Chinese restaurant. They gave us a lovely round table for 6, promptly brought lots of... More

I went with friends and they choose the restaurant. The food was fine. Nothing spectacular but fine. The service was ok, I had to search and flag the waitress down a few times. Not my idea of a great restaurant but the company was good. Its central so good for parking.

We just dropped in Wednesday at 9:30pm, no reservation. The atmosphere was bright with holiday lights. The staff friendly . We had a relaxing meal on a rainy night after a long trip from Dublin I had sweet and sour chicken, he had beef chop suey. Delicious.This place is a gem hidden in Athy. We will return.

This is an absolutely lovely restaurant in the centre of Athy with very friendly staff & a lovely atmosphere & very nice decor. It's very reasonably priced too. The Kung Po chicken was particularly good. The place seems to cater well for large groups but this did not get in our way at all (we are a couple). Overall would... More

Walked in off the street on a Thursday night. When we got in we were asked if we had booked. We said we hadn't and the waiter said he would find us somewhere. (That's when I knew it was going to be good). We had a few different servers come and go from the table. All were very pleasant bar... More

The food is delicious, very varied , catering... More

Long wait between courses. Quality of food made up for the wait. Chicken satay skewers were delicious for a starter.
