The place is very old and just dirty . Best of luck using the toilets that you don't get some sort of disease. Food flavour less and very get expensive. How is this 4 star on trip advisor are they rating themselves. Stay away

Got a takeaway Saturday night, waited 50 minutes for just a starter and rice. There was absolutely no sauce to the satay just chicken and the chicken was not nice at all. Will not be revisiting.

If you are lucky enough to get a window table the views of Galway Bay over the Salthill Promenade are spectacular. Food was ok, although the stir-fry chicken was a little tough and seemed pre-cooked. Set menu available at certain times.
