I found the staff were very rude, impatient and unhelpful, we got the impression that we were unwelcomed and he was annoyed at us. Also some of the menu was unavailable to eat there, you had to get it to take away and we were...unimpressed by this.More

This place was great, we had a number of dishes. All were fresh cooked, flavorful and delicious. The value for money was good as well.

The food looked and tasted great, and was genuinely a tasty and enjoyable experience. The menu is very diverse/varied and has a lot of choices for any taste. The decor and atmosphere of the place feel authentic and relaxing. I'll certainly be coming back here...for dinner. The only thing that really can be criticized (perhaps aside from the lack of desserts) is that the service could do with some work. For example, instead of leaving the shared rice bowl at our table, the waiter insisted on shoving the race onto our plates himself, which was a bit awkward. But otherwise, again, I really recommend the place.More

I was more than a little apprehensive after reading some of the previous reviews . However we had a fantastic experience last night. The food was excellent, and the service, polite friendly and professional. It is also one of the swankier looking Chinese restaurants, so...well furnished, quiet and very comfortable. I haven't posted for a while, but I was so impressed I wanted to let people know that either the staff have changed or have been retrained. Emma in Particular was fantastic. We were served quickly despite the head chef being on holiday, and it being a busy Saturday at 7.30 PM We will most definitely be back.More

I went to this restaurant on April 15th 2019 with my partner. It was a very unsatisfactory experience. The waiter was outright rude. The carpets were filthy and my boots felt like they were going to stick to it as I walked across it. Then...the food was really expensive for Tullamore prices. I was charged €18.50 for a Thai Green Curry. It was down as €15.50 on the menu but then when we went to pay for it, we were informed that it’s an additional €3 for the rice. At €15.50, it’s already more expensive than most of the other restaurants in Tullamore. Add in €3 extra for what is already included in the vast majority of restaurants in Ireland, and you have by far the most expensive curry in Tullamore and arguably one of the most expensive in Ireland. Now that might be justifiable if it was an award winning restaurant or if the dish was absolutely amazing. However this dish was average. I’m a weekly customer to Tullamore’s restaurants for years so I know exactly what standard has been set in the town and this dish certainly was not the best curry in town, never mind one of the best in Ireland. Therefore the prices being charged are outrageous. I would not recommend the restaurant to anybody.More

Went out for my birthday meal could not believe how rude the staff was no way to run a business. No manners was treated like dirt, bill was handed to me on a piece of A4 paper. I informed the waitress I was not in...any way impressed with the service. She had nothing to say. Everything was an effort, will not be returning ever and would not recommend this place to anyone. Totally discusted to be treated like this..... 😠More

As it was my friends birthday we decided that we would treat her to a lovely surprise meal in the Canton regent tullamore. I went in earlier in the day to leave in birthday cake decorations etc also to book a table for two for...my teenage nephew and his girlfriend at separate tables.. when the party of 7 arrived at 7pm we were not greeted with as much as a hello. The man came to take our order and was not one bit pleasant. Nearly more so "what the f**k do you want" kind of attitude. Never approached to see was everything ok, absolutely nothing. When I approached them to bring out the cake the woman hardly even answered. When the cake did come out we were handed what felt like already used paper plates. For a restaurant I thought that was very unhygienic. My nephew and his girlfriend asked for spice bag obviously on a plate for main course. Take into account their teenagers and the reply they got was "your at the wrong place" but yet you can get spice bag on the take away menu. Our bill was wrote on the back of an A4 sheet of used paper again not restaurant standard. This is one restaurant I will NOT be returning too. Never met staff as rude in my life.More

Best satay sauce in the area, highly recommend the visit if you like Chinese. Reasonably priced. Staff could be a bit more friendly though.

Nice tasty meal, with more than adequate portion sizes, in a spacious and tidy restaurant at a very affordable price. Wasn't busy at the time that we were there, but I was impressed with the service all the same.
