We were a walk-in late at night on the recommendation of a taxi driver and were not let down. The food was scrumptious and the service was both unique and professional. The decor was very tasteful and trendy, bathrooms were spotless and we enjoyed the background music! Very reasonable prices for what tasted like 5* gourmet!

The food and service is always excellent and consistent. The buffet on a Thursday night is delicious and a must try if your... More

Popular for a reason, good food, good service, reasonably priced too. Not found anywhere in Athy that's better yet. Had the spicy duck off specials board, full breast and plenty spicy enough, cheers.

Amazing food whether it's eat in or take away. Would have no hesitation in recommending Ngai's for a casual night out or a special occasion. Kate looks after everyone so well and Niamh super waitress

Went here on the recommendation of a friend to try the Thursday evening buffet. Received a warm welcome on arrival and the staff were extremely friendly throughout the evening. The food was delicious but I found there to be very limited options of what to eat ( you don't order here, it's whatever selection the staff place in the buffet... More

A warm welcome met us even though we didn't have a reservation on a very busy Christmas Eve The staff were all very friendly and there's a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The menu is vast with great variety of food, wines and beers. Service was prompt and friendly throughout our meal. It worked out at less than 25 euro each for... More

Parents just moved to Athy, planned to bring us to Clanard Hotel but it was closed. Drove blindly into Athy, noticed a light on and the word "buffet". Went upstairs on the off-chance they'd take us, was so happily surprised to see such a magnificent Chinese restaurant. They gave us a lovely round table for 6, promptly brought lots of... More
