I was there with colleagues from work and I was surprised by the great Asian food you can try there. I did not expect that quality and when the place is not the most luxury, it is not expensive and they treat you well. They have karaoke areas and private rooms available for bookings and it is perfect for couples,... More

We kind of order the same thing and it's always demolished and always good. Their pork dumplings are amazing, hand made, not frozen. Sizzling squid with cumin seeds and chilli is to due... More

Lot of choices on the menu, we were not disappointed by our meals. The Staff was friendly and efficient. We'll definitely come back to try other dishes.

A friend brought me here to explore the Korean cuisine, and it was absolutely a revelation. I had some dumpling to start and as a main I got the pork and squid with rice. Everything was really tasty and relatively cheap for the massive amount of food you got. The staff made sure you were constantly looked after. I would... More

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.
