Popped in here for some hot and filling before venturing to Thomond Park for a soccer match on a bitterly cold day. First impression was that the interior was very pleasing when we stepped inside the door. We were greeted by a friendly waiter and shown to a table. We were only having a main dish each, and were very surprised at how extensive the menus were. This is a Thai/Indian restaurant so there are two distinct halves to the menu. We opted for Chicken Korma and Chilli Prawns. Both meals were absolutely delicious. Two mains, a pint of beer and a soft drink came to €30, which was excellent value considering the high standard of our meal. Service was prompt, friendly and non-intrusive. We couldn't fault anything about our dining experience, but one huge let-down was the toilet. Whilst I don't know exactly how many diners this restaurant seats (at a wild guess I would think roughly 35), one toilet is NOT enough to facilitate everybody. The really disturbing thing is that the toilet door opens outward onto the floor, and you can see straight into the toilet from your table (if you are unlucky enough to be sitting near enough to it). I didn't realise this myself until I went to use it and I was absolutely horrified. I know it is for wheelchair and able-bodied users alike, but I can't for the life of me understand how they get away with the door opening outwards, right on to the floor where diners are eating. On health and safety grounds alone it is totally unacceptable, never mind the unpleasantness of actually seeing a toilet itself from the dining room when the door is open. Because only one person can use the toilet at time, I wouldn’t like to be dining when the restaurant is full – people waiting to use it would have to queue around the tables where patrons are eating. Perish the thought. Seriously, this issue needs to be looked at.
