Overrated food, not motivated staff. 5% service included in the bill is a nonsense , i always tip 10% but did not leave anything due to that.

It is a very strange feeling to walk into a restaurant that's named after a brutal dictator noted, amongst other grand felonies, for starving his people on a colossal scale. And frankly, it shows a want of taste by the owners of this chain of restaurants (for I understand this branch is one of a few) but in other ways... More

The food is excellent with a large choice. I found the staff particularly helpful. The location of the restaurant is ideal.

I would have given this five stars only for the service we received on our visit. Our waitress was completely oblivious to us for most of the time we were there, forgetting to bring our drinks and part of our main course, waiting almost half an hour after we had finished our meal to have our table cleared off and...

I went for lunch here with the boss recently, not my latest lady friend, but my actual boss at work. I had the black pepper beef with noodles. I think it is fantastic, I always get it and it is probably the nicest stir fry I know of in Dublin. The boss had the Pad Thai. He said it was... More

We could not eat our dinner. I asked the waitress if the chef dropped the salt container in all of our food The manager said that Thai food is generally salty and that no extra salt is added. It was the worst Thai food I have eaten and will not be back

It has been some time since i was in this restaurant, a one time favourite, I was looking forward to a delicious meal. I was a lone diner and two tables with couples, who arrived and ordered after me, got served their food first, but at this point, I still expected it to be worth the wait. Sadly, I was... More

Traded in our Tesco tokens for some cafe mao vouchers so went for dinner. After a very disappointing visit to the one in Dundrum this one in dun laoire was a nice breath of fresh air. Staff were really friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was altogether much more pleasant. Food was really good and fresh, we'll definitely be visiting... More
