Romantic trip on Sat night from Glasgow so booked here specifically. I had a friend book for us who stays in Dublin but never took our names when we walked in. Sat by the door. Big mistake. We ordered 1 starter and 2 main courses with fried rice and asked for them to be delivered at the same time. Food... More

Food quality is just .. not bad. Staffs are not the most friendly staff but not bad. Location is not bad. However, they do not have a single thing that impressed me. I have visited there like 5 times but sometimes the staffs were horrible.

Dropped in here on spec on a Friday evening. It looked very promising as there were quite a few Asian customers. We had 2 beers to start which were very well priced for a restaurant. Looking back on the reviews now, we seem to have missed some very interesting options on the menu and we could probably have done with... More

We went twice and quite satisfied with the meals. Personally, I like sweet and sour pork and other dishes like COME ONE BULGOGI, but not enjoyed the BBQ much.

The service was ok and the quality of the food was good. The vast majority of the clientele consisted of young people. This meant that the environment was quite noisy with a lot of loud talking and laughter and for me matters were made even worse by the much too loud background music. In general although the food and service... More

Visited with my wife and 2 children (( and 13) on Saturday afternoon. We ordered the BBQ for 3 people - more than enough for the four of us and the kids enjoyed the prospect of cooking the food ourselves. Obviously very popular but could do with more staff - there seemed to be only 2 people doing front of... More

Hilan has always stood apart for the authenticity of its menu. It rarely disappoints and they've maintained this standard while maintaining an excellent price point. You get a lot more than you pay for! My concerns are related to their obvious growth in popularity (so well deserved) and my sense that their standards have dropped in key areas of their... More

We knew we wanted Chinese and used the near me function in the trip advisor to find Halin. We're very glad we did! Dry ribs and spring roll starters were amazing and the main courses of chicken fried noodles and crispy squid were also very tasty. Portions are HUGE! Neither of us managed to finish our mains and were very... More
