“Asian fast food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

Local asean restaurant with a selection of typical starters and main dishes in a modern setting.
Expect spring rolls, chicken sate, phad thai, nasi goreng and apple pie or ice cream for desert.
Not bad but nothing special.

“Nothing special & expensive lunch”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

Limited menu, no specials, it was expensive & functional thai food. Service also average as had to go & ask to take the order plus same for paying the bill. Not a happy place & won't visit again.

“Thai McDonald's”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

Service was good, friendly staff. Atmosphere on entering reminded me of McDonalds.
We'd heard a few good reviews of Mao so thought we'd give it a go. The food wasn't to my liking really. I do love Thai food usually but the food all tasted really really sweet to me. We both actually ended up leaving most of our main course for this reason. I may revisit in the future but I'll be a little more particular what I select from the menu next time.
It would be a great restaurant to visit for families as atmosphere is very relaxed and they do good deals- lunch and dinner.

“Good food at Mao”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

We visit Mao every time we are in Dun Laoighaire. My children love the food especially the Thai crackers.
The prices are reasonable but have risen lately.
It is always busy but we have alway been able to get a seat.,

“Sailing Trip Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Excellent Value with three courses for €20 on the early bird menu, Very quick service. Only criticism would be that the portions were not big enough.
