Very pleasantly surprised with the tasty, aromatic flavoursome food. Really great value for the quality of the food, favourite Thai in Dublin. The company cocktails were only ok given our expectations were high but they've an extensive beer menu and service was friendly and efficient

Went here for lunch with a number of colleagues. The service was quick and friendly. The food was decent. I had the shaking beef with fried rice and it was good

Rather disappointingly we booked here for food and then reserved a table area in the club above. I called the venue before hand and explained we were a large group and didn't want to book if it was a quiet venue, but had assurance this wouldn't matter as its a loud venue and a Dj would be playing right next to the table we had reserved.
Food and service was good, although we did have a set menu of 3 courses but only one person in our group received dessert. It was also loud throughout the restaurant as we anticipated (had read other reviews).
However after settling the bill we were informed we weren't being allowed into the club which was disappointing given how much we had just spent.
Appreciate a group of 15+ males isn't always desirable for a club, but if that's the case let people know before you serve them food and drink...

We had mixed reviews regarding food in the group. Some people liked theirs a lot, so found it average. We really enjoyed the garden though and wonderful cocktails. Lovely place for an afterwork catchup.

It is on a busy road and on a Saturday night it was difficult to find somewhere to eat. We saw this place and it looked dark so didn’t even know it was open until we tried the door. It was very very quiet (it was 9pm) and we were concerned why that was but I think it may be that it is set back from the road and dark because the service and food was incredible. Gorgeous pad Thai and nice wine. I would highly recommend people to give it a try. I would definitely return next time I’m in Dublin!
