If you are looking for simple modern food in Carrigaline at fairly reasonable prices then is the place for you. There is nothing authentic about the Thai Red Curry served with "basmati" rice and popadoms but it was very tasty for all that. No complaints and very pleasant staff.

“Nice litte Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Recently ate in this restaurant on two occassions, once in the restaurant upstairs and the second time in the bar area down stairs. It has a good selection of foods ranging from Salads and Burgers to their daily specials. The food is reasonably priced and very tasty. On one occassion I had the burger and was advised that it would take an extra 15 mins as it was cooked to order. I never have an issue waiting for food when im advised - so well done guys. Not sure if it was a result of my extra time but my husbands food on arrival was only tepid. On our second occassion we both had the Chicken & Chirizo salad which was fantastic. The staff are pleasant and helpful. In all, nice meals on both occassions.
