We (husband and I) went to Mao last weekend and had the pre-theatre 3 course dinner for 20.00 euro. The choice is very limited (2 options for starters and 4 for mains and only one pud!) One of the starter options, spring rolls, were not available so that left the chicken satay. It was fine but nothing wildly exciting. The main courses were just ok but heavy on the rice and noodles with very little meat. Neither were particularly spicy and my noodles were distinctly gloopy. The service was dreadfully slow. We told them at the beginning that we had to be out in an hour but there was no hurry at all and we had to leave without our third course. The staff were not managed at all and many people who stuck their heads in the door to inquire about tables were ignored and eventually left. There was also food remains on the floor and no attempt to clean up. I would never go there again and would not recommend it to anyone. Very poor value for money.
