Extremely impolite and unacceptable behavior by the staff and the food was never delivered. A truly awful experience.

Small portions. Expensive. Chewy chicken. Yes the presentation was good but not worth the price. Nearly twice the price for the same standard somewhere else. I know Ballsbridge is an expensive area but standard also needs to be high. I have to say that the staff were efficient.

Good Chinese cuisine, suitable for formal groups and casual. We went here regularly when living in Dublin.

Four of us had dinner here using group on voucher. We went early so we were the only diners. The service was good. We had two course dinner, starter and main. We had duck spring rolls and spareribs for starters. We had sweet and sour chicken, king prawns and broccoli for mains. The portions were good and the food was... More

Four of us from Belfast went to this restaurant before a Leinster v Ulster rugby match at the RDS. We went at 5.30 pm and were among the first to dine that evening. The decor was pleasant and we had a nice clean comfortable table towards the back of the restaurant. The service was friendly and very efficient. The food... More

We went on one of our "lovely evening walk" walks. When we could literally end up anywhere. And we did! Moseying up Baggot Street Upper, we eventually happened up Orchid Szechuan on Pembroke Road. I remember this place being under a different name from way back when, but I had never been. We'd not had a Chinese meal in ages... More

Great restaurant tucked away. Food was great as on previous visits. Staff very friendly and the service was great. Finished with an Irish coffee made to perfection. Great evening.

After 2 weeks touring Ireland, the best Irish food I had was our meal here. Perhaps I was just tired of Guinness and 3 varieties of potatoes with every meal. Yes, I once ordered a steak that was served on a bed of mashed potatoes, with roasted potatoes and a potato croquette. But upon reflection, this place was just a... More

Decided to try after a long day exploring. Had 2 courses off the early bird menu which was 20 euros...so not bad price for the area. Food well presented and with good flavours...some bits of meat not up to my standards so had to pick around. Good portion size. Staff pleasant and accommodating.
