Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We enjoyed BANG twice over a few days whilst visiting Dublin. The food was excellent, service was superb, and the wine list extensive, but affordable. The pork loin and chicken breast entrees were very good. We would recommend BANG heartily. It's popular, so make reservations!

I was at BANG with a relatively sizeable group for a bachelorette party, and we had a truly great time here. The food was beautifully plated and of great quality, and the atmosphere in the restaurant is both elegant and cozy. What really tied the...evening together though was our waitress, Virginia, who did an absolutely wonderful job looking after us, despite the group size. She was friendly, and looked after everyone with great care. Highly recommended place for a special occasion, you won't regret it!More

A good dining experience in a restaurant that seemed to get much busier as the night unfolded. Some fabulous bread which my wife kept wondering how it was made, was fabulous. My wife had the cauliflower and I asked 'Pierre' our french waiter, should I...go for the Scallops or Pork cheek to start? I went against his advice because the pork interested me and it was a great starter. The duck and ribeye main courses were also very good. The desserts we felt had a bit less zing. Service was good and some nice wines on the list. The Fournier Sancerre was lovely! Well as the night went on we noticed people waiting a long time and the young couple next to us left after 1 hour with no food. It's always different when you pass on starters but I felt 1 hour was a bit much. Maybe you should always have a starter!More

I found this place on an Instagram reel. It looked amazing and I wanted to go for ages. My fiance booked it as a surprise celebration meal for me however some of the recent TripAdvisor comments put him off and he nearly cancelled the booking....Please do book this restaurant. The food is sublime, flavoursome dishes with exceptional cuts of meat. We come from london and you can't get this quality for the price, you would be paying a lot more! We highly recommend the, prawn toast, cheeseburger spring roll, kung po chicken and the Irish wagu. A wagu dish like this in London would be £50-60! I saw someone review that the spring rolls are expensive at 5 euro each. My local takeaway charges £4 for just one and they are just filled with vegetables! The quality of the food was matched by the service, friendly, attentive and welcoming. Hopefully we can return one day when back in Dublin.More

A group of us friends left this restaurant very disappointed. We sat down to a 2 course dinner for our Christmas night out. At 69 euro for 2 courses at the early sitting NONE of the main dishes came with chips or veg so these...had to be ordered & paid for @ an extra 7 euro each. The food was tasty but soon after ordering more wine and coffees we were told we needed to leave the table for the next time slot. Most of us hadn't even finished our wine and we were ushered downstairs to pay our bill on the way out! None of the group have ever experienced this before. They cleared the room we were sitting in upstairs of all tables/groups in one full swoop! We just felt the restaurant are trying to turn over as many tables as they can as quickly as they can!More

A superb restaurant set in the heart of Dublin. The place oozes the feel of a Michelin Star establishment with service to match. I took a few VIP customers for the first time experience and was delighted by the management team attention and impeccable service....The menu is a curated delight of selections to match all palettes including Vegan and Vegetarian selections. All dietary needs are cared for. The wine selection is impressive and compliments the dishes on offer. Prices are aligned to the standards you come to expect from a 5* restaurant. As a visitor from London, I was impressed by the ambiance and cool vibe and this is certainly a place to return as lots of dishes I’d love to try. A booking is essential as gets popular. Definitely deserves all the plaudits given and certainly a gem in Dublin centre.More
