This place has closed for good. No fault of the restaurant itself as staff tell me it was a related business issue in the city that influenced/forced its closure. I hope it opens again as it was never less than perfect.

Arrived in time for the early bird menu but because it took 20mins to take our order they told us it was no longer available. Waiting over 50mins for our main course. Floor staff are really disorganised and forgot about us a bunch of times. We had to catch their eye and remind them about our drinks and missing parts... More

As being quite fussy in regards to authentic food, we were sceptical en route to that place. Not really in Blarney but in one of the next villages, easy parking, strange interior but reminded us of Thailand to be honest. The service was great, helpful and welcoming. The food was quite good and better than a lot of other asian... More

Very basic restaurant, extensive menu but otherwise not great. The staff don't know the menu, one member of staff wasn't sure if noodle soup also came with a side of noodles/rice! The prawn tempura wasn't tempura, just oily battered prawns and came on a plate with processed onion rings! The food over all was very average, I would not recommend... More

Staff in general were very friendly with the exception of one lady who wasn't too bothered lol . We all can't love our jobs I guess . You won't be disappointed with the food... More

I've been going here regularly for years and I've never once had the food or service provided at a less than excellent standard. The fact that the cooks are Thai people obviously helps in making this the best Thai food place in Cork. The restrooms are always clean and well-stocked. Plenty car parking spaces out front. This is a very... More

Visited the Mandalay with my girlfriend using a living social voucher. The voucher said present printed voucher or on smartphone. When meal was finished when I presented the voucher at payment on my smartphone I was told it had to be printed. I showed the man that the voucher clearly stated "printed OR on smartphone" but he wouldn't accept it.... More
