“awful food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

my husband and i just ate in this restaurant,and can honestly say food was awful.we ate from the set menu.,starters were fish cakes that lacked flavour,mains were noodles and chicken,again bland and overcooked.The waitress was lovely and service very good but a shame the chef let them down.

“Excellent Thai food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Great Thai food was not one of the things I expected to find in Cork. We tripped across Eden at dinnertime and thought we'd take a chance. It was the best green curry chicken we've had in 25 years (used to get it in Chicago)! The waitress was very helpful with selecting wine and everything we ordered was delicious. Prices were reasonable for food this well prepared.

“average and inconsistent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We went to this restaurant for an evening meal. The place is spacious and nice airy feel to it. The food was inconsistent. Few of them are good and others are average at most. Soup we got was very good and full of flavoring. Also same for the Thai curry. But the chicken in Chinese dish was chewy. Also the fishcake starter was watery and test peculiar. Best part was the desert. they were superb. Also service lacks warmth.

“Always worth of visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I've now been to this restaurant about 5-6 times in the last few months and it's really good. I did notice a subtle difference in the spice of the foods from food I’ve tasted in Asia, they’re not quite as hot/spicy as in Thailand/ China. But this might not be a bad thing catering for the majority of Irish palates, who prefer foods not too spicy. But this isn't a negative comment, just a comment! The food is still delicious. I had tom yum soup which I love, my friends shared a platter of Thai starters. All 3 of us went for the chilli monkfish and it was amazing, the flavours are just fantastic, we were all just short of licking the plates clean! The music here is really good as well, if you like 80s/ 90’s music! It's not too loud but you can hear it in the background! Absolutely check this place out, the food is super and the flavours are wonderful. Service is pleasant, relaxed and prompt.
