“The food was lovely but the portions were small.I will return.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2011

I happen to book in on a very busy night, New Years Eve so the staff were ran off their which meant we were waiting quite a long time but the food was very nice and the staff did their best ( portions are on the small side).The decor was very modern and comfortable.please note it is on the second floor.There are not much options on the special 3 course menus.Also the fizzy drinks were served from 2 ltr bottles but charged for regular small glass bottles minus the fizz. I would definitely go back on my next visit to kilarney and hopefully on a quieter night.it is a good place to eat. There is a public car park in the basement at only 1 Euro an hour.

“Great tasting food at great prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2010

Myself and some work collegues eat lunch at Golden Chopsticks every Friday. The lunch menu offers a large variety of dishes, with some great sauces to choose from. With the House Special being the most expensive at just €10, how can you go wrong!! It's just a pity that more people from Killarney don't support this restaurant, as it is always very quiet at lunchtimes. Great Food, Great Service, Great Prices - please, try it out, you will come back!!

“Wish they did take-away to N.J. in the USA!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2010

After eating in many pubs over our 8-day trip to Ireland, it was a pleasure to find such an amazingly fabulous Chinese restaurant tucked around the corner and upstairs from the main street (it's half a block from the cinema).
I don't know where to start, but how about the appetizers. We got the assorted appetizer platter (for 4 of us) and there was plenty for us to share. Between the meaty ribs, crispy spring rolls, the chicken sate and one other item (can't remember, but I do know it was tasty) we were licking our fingers. We shared a bowl of hot & sour soup, which was truly spicy and flavorful. Now onto the main courses....

All of our selections rivaled the best Chinese restauarants in the US, in both NJ & Chinatown, NYC. I had a lamb dish on a platter that sizzled when the sauce hit the metal platter with onions that absorbed the sauce and made them sweet and flavorful, a beef dish that had an unusual and yummy sauce, General Tsao's chicken, and another chicken dish. Between the wonderful and attentiive service and the remarkable food I'm sorry that I won't be returning there anytime soon.

We even stayed after our dinner to chat with server and maître d to find out more about their fantastic and creative chef.

This restaurant should not be missed if you are going to be in Killarney. It's a welcome change from the pub food that is readily available all over Ireland (which we'll also miss).

“beware if bringing kids.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2010

While the food is good, ( much as any of the chinese in Killarney), service is fine, my big problem is that they will not do half portions for young kids. No way no how. this is ok if you have kids that all like the same dish, but more often than not, that is not the case. this is a shame as it is really nice and i know from my firends on hearing that no half portions they wont even contemplate going there.
