“Disappointing lunch! ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

Let me start by saying it was the liosban branch I visited. Decided to visit mix greens fir lunch yesterday with girlfriend and child. On first impressions the place looks and sounds good ie nice menu and decor. We sat down to a dirty table and was brought down 3 even dirtier glasses. The water container was dirty too. Bad first impression I have to say. Unfortunately the food was just ok that followed. I ordered the lemon and garlic chicken ciabatta which tasted of neither or of chicken which was bizarre. Service was fast and quick but it really seemed to be a case of style over substance.

“Delicious Risotto - pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

I arrived kind of late in the evening, and the staff made me feel very at ease, and not at all rushed, I ordered the Risotto with chicken and wild mushrooms, and omg, it was absolutely delicious. The staff were just lovely, and although they were getting ready to lock up, they never rushed me or made me feel like I should hurry up. but honestly, that risotto was delicious, I cant wait to get back to Galway to try it again. Definitely eat in this restaurant.

“Hot pots are a treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Have been to Mix Greens in Newcastle a few times. It gets extremely busy at lunch time so I prefer to visit "off-peak". The staff at Newcastle branch are very good - friendly and efficient. The food is generally of good cafe standard - much better than any fast food outlet and better than most pub grub. The hot pots are excellent - I really like the pork hot pot and its a very generous portion of tasty hot food for the same price as a sandwich. The chicken breast burger is also excellent - filling, tasty and good value. The only gripe I have is the same as some of the other reviewers - the salads are expensive and not filing. Not a restaurant but more than a take-away. It works for me.

“Neither here nor there”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

Is it a cafe, is it a restaurant?
It looked more promising from the outside than when in. A bit disappointed to be honest as was not overly inspired. The interior felt like a McDonald's that had a green makeover.
