Great place. Fabtastic food, huge portions, good prices. It's pretty much faultless. The dumplings were fantastic, the lamb and cumin was pretty much perfect and service was prompt and friendly.

This was a quick eat 'on the fly' before an appointment. It was my first time in the Mandarin House. I got squid and celery. It was okay, the egg fried rice was alright too. I have been to better Asian restaurants, but it was a cheap eat, so you get what you pay for. The service was good though.... More

Quite a shabby looking place and doesn't look great in the inside either. Staff were lovely but the food really wasn't great - sweet and sour chicken and a few pieces of chicken were black on the inside. Won't be coming back. Wasn't too satisfied after the meal.

Ok. The place doesn't look much from the outside but the food.. OMG, I was rolling out after perfect dumplings and a spicy pork belly with fried rice. Highly recommended

Lots of Asian restaurants are having the same issue: huge menu, no speciality. This is the same case: Chinese, Korean, Thai and more. Yes, the food was nice. Same taste as you'll find in most of the Asian places. The price was good. The hall was really basic, not for romantic dates. If I'll be around and hungry, I'll go... More

We visited this small Chinese restaurant on the celebration of the Chinese New year!!! What a surprise we were in for we ate a delicious Duck followed by mouth watering fresh Scallops and Razor shellfish. We also ate fish which was also cooked to perfection, i must admit this was the best Chinese food i ever ate in my life... More

You'd walk past this Chinese restaurant without noticing it, the decor isn't great but the food is delicious. We have been many times and it doesn't disappoint, this is definitely my favourite Chinese in Dublin.

We tried this restaurant due to the trip advisor reviews and the food was nice but this didn't make up for the surroundings and the place did smell a bit fusty. We both had a coke and we got charged two euros each for cans that said part of a multi pack dont sell individually. If a few hundred euros... More

Went here on Friday evening as was staying nearby and saw good reviews for it. We both got a Satay and was very disappointing. Not very flavorsome and for €12 each which does not include rice or chips was very dear. We got a portion of Chips on the side which was €3 extra. The place is a little on... More
