Great food and attentive service all the right ingredients for a good meal out. There was 4 adults and1 31/2year old grandson,so diverse requirements and everyone was catered for. Things like our grandsons noodles were served without sauce and one of the party didn't want a main course was easily accommodated.

I visited Chilli Banana for the first time last night. I'd only ever heard good things about it and I wasn't disappointed. Not knowing how busy it might be on a Thursday night I booked it the night before, for 7pm, for 2 people. I arrived early and there were only 2 people eating. Within about 20 minutes it had... More

Looking for some nice oriental food, I found this restaurant on Tripadvisor. Staying at the Dublin Skylon hotel across the road, it's an obvious choice...even more since I did read many positive comments on Tripadvisor. Had a Tom Kai soup with shrimps, (which was excellent!) and as a main coarse a mixed seafood dish with jasmin rice. Very well prepared... More

Nice Thai restaurant with good food, two waiters for a full restaurant is a bit thin on the ground. Good taste and nice atmosphere.

Real good Thai food at a reasonable price. The padd thai is a real favourite of mine there. At night you can park for free across the road in the atlas tyre shop
