The restaurant is very colorful inside but the furniture is quite basic and modern, no Thai style at all. But if you are not there to look for 'atmosphere' but instead to have a god Thai meal, this is a perfect place to go. I always go to a shared plate of starters for two...delicious!! And then I like all... More

Sat outside on a beautiful Dublin day. Ate the chicken and cashew Thai dish with rice. Service was fast and efficient and the meal arrived within a few minutes. A mere €9.95 for lunch. Loved it and look forward to returning.

After walking around the city all day we happened across this location chain restaurant. Decided to order some food to take back to the hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We had an assortment of appetizers. The egg rolls were crispy and the Chicken Satay was tasty and moist. We had one curry and a noodle dish. Plenty... More

If you like Asian you will love Mao. Very tasty food, fab sauces. I regularly 'go for a Mao' but this is my first time reviewing it. Pay it a visit, you will go back.

I have been a exponent of Mao for as long as I can remember but this time sorry not, I had persuaded my wife to try it. I had the Nash go rent, Ewhurst I normally have enjoyed, but too much rice and very little else. DRY dry! Ver expensive given the level of ingredients, overall very disappointed.
