If you're visiting Dublin and you feel the blood sugars drop and need sustenance fast after a shopping spree on Grafton St then check Ukiyo.
They are situated on Exchequer St which is just off Grafton street in Dublin.
We go there every six weeks before our Book Club.
And everytime we go there we cannot go past the Bento Box. It is always amazing value and delicious.
The early bird Bento Box is 15 euro (from memory).
I've also been to Ukiyo for a group dinner and the service was great.
My friends continued downstairs to the Karaoke booths and it's something that I'm dying to try out again.
I would definitely recommend this for a cheap and cheerful Early bird dinner.
And I believe they have a DJ at the weekend.

This restaurant is a poor copy of Yakamoura (200 metres away) and people go there if the opposition is fully booked. The food is average but tasty and is not too expensive. It has nowhere near the atmostphere that the superior Yakamoura has, (abeit it is much smaller and would have difficulty competing). The waiting staff are friendly and efficient but the managers are simply rude and bordering on aggressive when they want you out as they struggle with their own overbookings particularly on a Saturday evening. I am told that the Karakoke can be excellent on occasion, which is probably the only thing that it has that Yakamoura does not. Go only when you the restaurants in this busy part of town are full although most of the time it is empty.

We tried the special "Bento Box" which was a selection of mini dishes for each person. Excellant choice, tried things I would not normally have picked off the menu. Delicious. Very busy, but good friendly service.

Ukiyo Bar now offers a range of lunch and sushi bentos, all for the same great price but since our new head chef arrived we are singing about the quality from the roof tops...!
