The staff here are fantastic. Really welcoming and funny. The food is great also. I had never been to this place before but I will be going back a lot. I think it's going to become very popular.

Really tasty BBQ at ur table (by gas). Both types of beef amazing but chicken not great. Sides delish esp spicy kimchi. Have tried lots of sushi and enjoyed all. Haven't tried a curry yet but look forward to it. Good value too.

Really lovely Korean food here and one of my favourite in Dublin. The price is a bit steep for students (average 10 euro for a single dish), and even if I opt for a vegetarian option I would still have to pay the same amount for the same dish piled with beef. Staff are generally nice, however we were once... More

Have been here couple of times and always left with unbuttoned jeans. Really nice food and big portions. Always got BBQ for 2 with my friend and could never finish it all, but maybe because we always order more dishes. My favorite is japchae, again really big portion. All of their meats are well marinated and you always get tap... More

Great place if you are fed up with heavy Irish food. Go for sets 10,11 or 7. Great Korean stews. Great Kim chi. Although - for meat lovers the barbecue looks even better. Well priced. Highly recommended.

The place is cosy. But I guess it needs to be rated for cleanliness. We had cutlery that was wrapped in tissue and its soaking wet. It's quite gross. The place needs a good washout and better ventilation to bring up to a better level. The services were hit and miss. When we needed them they were not there. When... More

Having decided to move away from our normal side of town we headed along Capel Street to find something new. Here all of our expectations were meet. The welcome, service and food were amazing, The style of cooking is lovely to watch and the food was unreal. We left after a lovely evening very happy.

I regularly come here for Korean food and there is nothing else quite as homey as this place. The Set BBQ for 2 people easily feeds 3 - so much good food and doesn't cost too much.

I visit Arisu regularly. It's my favourite Korean restaurant in Dublin. The food is absolutely delicious and the staff are lovely and helpful. I recommend the Korean meal box as it allows you to try a variety of foods. The menu prices are very reasonable and the portions are large.
