I have been visiting the Thumb Plaza area for many years and really never paid a lot of attention to the Irish Pub. However, with all of the bar changes in the area, I thought to have dinner there a week ago in late January. Menu selection was good. Prices were a little more than the local Chinese places, but the food was great. Serving portions are large. The roasted chicken breast was in fact half a chicken. My friend was also impressed with the quality of her meal. A couple of nights later, I went in for some drinks and snack food. Again, everything was very good. The snack food was too much for one person and the drinks were very good; I could actually taste the alchohol in the drink. This will now be my regular place.

The food is pretty good. Not great but it is certainly familiar and when you are looking for familiar food after being in China for a week or more, this place is great. They have some nice tables outside when the weather is good. They also have the nicest pool table in the area. Just put your name on the chalkboard and get ready for a game with people from all over the world. Thumb plaza has all kinds of people from all walks of life. There are many expats living near there so you see it all.

Loved the home cooked food, the Irish beer and the friendly service - Kilkenny beer travels well. Quite pricey compared to the UK but not overpriced for location.

A lot of non-Asians in this place. Great jetlag recovery spot, when you don't feel like figuring out what to order. Food was surprisingly good and prices reasonable.

I ordered the Ruben sandwich and they call it "The best Ruben in Town". It should have been named the "Worst Ruben in Town". The bread was ok, but dry, the corned beef was dry, tough, and not much there. No cheese, the cabbage was rubbery. I ordered a vodka & 7up and it came with no vodka.
Another person ordered a steak sandwich well done. It was advertised on the menu as sirloin steak sandwich but was served as a chopped steak and it was rare instead of well done. Another person ordered a hamburger rare ...it was served well done.
I will never eat there again that is for sure!
