Myself and my boyfriend visited M&L for dinner late on a Sunday - about 8pm.

It’s nice to find a dinner on a Sunday that isn’t just a takeaway, and we were very keen when we saw how busy the restaurant was.

We decided to order one of the set menus - menu A for two.

The starter was a chicken mince dish with veg and iceberg lettuce which was delicious.

We then had sweet and sour chicken, beef in black bean sauce, mixed sautéed veg and fried rice.

It was all delicious, and there were plenty of veg in all the dishes, which a nice change from the usual Chinese fare found in Ireland.

To top it off, you can get a bottle of Tsingtao for €3!

The set menu was €35 and we didn’t finish it, there was lots of food.

Additional notes: staff very nice, toilets were clean and atmosphere is nice - loud enough to not feel overheard while you have a conversation.

We’ll definitely be revisiting.

If you are in Dublin and you want to taste some authentic freshly cooked Chinese food, don’t look any further. This is the place. Landed here on a late night last Friday with a bunch of colleagues, we absolutely loved this place. Dumplings were superb, the spicy duck was unbelievably good, coated king prawns were light and tasty. Everything tasted really nice and fresh. The place was full of Chinese people which I guess is a good indication. The lady manager was incredibly friendly, polite and helped us in selecting great places. The bill came as more than reasonable considering what we ate. This is from now on my No.1 place for Chinese food!! Give it a try!

Pre-booked here at 4pm for our family of 6 on Christmas Day. This was confirmed via txt on the day - brilliant service.


Staff was friendly welcomed us with glasses of water. Service was a bit slow - and it seems that the staff went on a short brake :)
Our vegetarian order got mixed up but was okay. Some of us chose from the English menu -
Me and my daughter Asked for a authentic Chinese menu, what was lovely - and would recommend the prawns, dumplings and tofu in chilli sauce and beans with seaweed. Could ha e done with extra spice :)

I did have to ask for chopsticks, this wasn’t a problem.

They give you loads - we couldn’t finish it ;)

This seems to be a cash only restaurant

After going for a new years eve meal with 15 to 20 friends. Was very disappointing as we ordered hot pot meals and thought this would be the best choice for the group. The electric cooking plate in which we where to cook ourselfs with didnt work and wouldn't cook the food and also the meat was very poor to even cook with in the first place. This went on for nearly 2 hours of a terrible experiance in which most people left without eating anything. When we complained in the end we got discount which was fair but to be honest i dont think we should have paid at all..only for the drinks anyways. Terrible and would never go back !!
