“I wouldn't serve this muck to my cat”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

I hadn't been to giraffe for years as the food and service had gone down the pan. When I saw the name change I assumed a change of ownership too. How wrong could I have been...same. old slop as before. Don't bother..I certainly won't be darkening its doors again. One redeeming feature was our waitress who took one look at my plate of uneaten ' chilli' and said " you didn't enjoy that did you?" And promptly took it off the bill!!

“Giraffe is now called "Sweet Chilli"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2012

We always liked Giraffe for a quick bite and casual meal, so after a theatre trip decided to drop in for something to eat. The name/management has changed to Sweet Chilli so we decided to give it a go. We were quickly shown to our seats and given a menu. There was plenty of food to choose from, most of which was mexican style, which we love and there was also a specials board. We were not disappointed with our dishes and the portions were good. The restaurant is not licensed but there is an off license next door and my husband was able to get a bottle of wine for us. The staff were friendly and we were happy with our service. I would recommend this place for a casual meal if you are into spicy food!

Food is great, just a bit expensive for a restaurant on Stranmillis.
