I am a regular customer of Ukiyo, food is excellent, perhaps my favorite dish is the bulgogi beef but also sushi is amazing. If you pop in at lunchtime the bento box is a very good value for money and taste delicious!

Ukiyo is a relaxed, friendly restaurant not far from Temple Bar and Grafton Street. My companion had an excellent tempura starter and sush maini while I had a wonderful tofu app and a filing and tasty vegetable noodle main course. All of it superb. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Love this place!!

Often pop in here for their lunch "soup" which is more filling than most lunchtime main courses. Hot, tasty and comforting. Bento box also excellent - enough to share with a child or small adult.

Very tasty food and probably the best value lunch in this part of Dublin. The lunch Bento is just perfect for an invigorating, refreshing and delicious middle of the day meal in cool surroundings and always served with a genuine smile. Seriously, if you find yourself in this part of Dublin any lunchtime you really must go in here.

I'm such a fan of this place. Even if I just want some edamame beans or if I go with friends it's been great. Try the spicy rolls and the AMAZING edamame beans.. The sushi bento is pretty unbeatable too. The staff is so cool and friendly, I really can't praise it enough.

I am not the adventurous type when it comes to food. I was so nervous about dining here. I went as part of a group for a Christmas gathering. I was so pleasantly surprised by the entire experience. Seated right away, given menus and a drinks order was taken. The food, although seems pricey on a student budget, is so... More

Whilst the feel of the place was great and the kitchen smelt like it was delivering fantastic food, the karaoke was a disappointment. The machine was not the best and the selection of songs supposedly available from their song book which was also published on their website was not true. We spent most our time searching for songs only to... More
