I like this restaurant but I can't always get there. So they offer takeaway. Waiting over an hour now though - fed up

We dined on Friday evening. One ate from the Early Bird and the the other from the a la Carte menu. One soup and one crispy duck/pancake starter. Soup was delicious. Crispy duck starter was veery tasty and enormous! Great value. Then finished off with a rice dish and a Massaman Curry. Again these were very good. The staff were charming and over all the meal was good value and well worth repeating.

We had tempura prawns and soup as starters- both were excellent. For mains we had duck and ice-cream and tasty cheese cake as deserts. It was a great meal, served by charming staff and overall the evening was a great value and will be repeated

Excellent food & service, though a bit slow, but I guess if you're not in a hurry, that's a good thing. Bit pricey but don't really mind when the food is good. I always think of it as money well spent. :)

We dined on ebi-fri and sushi starters, Followed by hot and sour duck, and the sizzling seafood. Each dish was most enjoyable. The staff were friendly and attentive. Allied with our own wine (corkage €5.00) it was a very enjoyable meal

Indian food here is very nice with a good selection and tentative friendly service. I was there early though so it was not very busy, it is quiet also with a more intimate atmosphere so not a good idea to bring a young noisy child along. I do prefer restaurants with some traditional background music but I would return if in the area.

I was expecting Thai food. This was more like Chinese food. No thai flavours in my dish. My sizzling seafood dish had no scallops. No explanation why. The food was ok but ultimately disappointing as I had expected Thai food. Waitress was lovely.

Restaurant was nice, food was fantastic, service was very good, however the only thing it did lack was atmosphere they had music on in the backround that would put you to sleep and we could hear everyone's conversation around us. Would definitely be goign back for the food though, top notch!!

Nice atmosphere. Very large reception area which alludes that there is more room in the dining area, but is a bit cramped in comparison. A lot of locals on the night who know each other which is a good sign but leads to loud cross table conversations or loud visits to each others tables. Service was as expected, one waitress more pleasant than the other, owner consistently checking tables and having conversations with diners, which is a nice and good touch in these times. Food was good, we picked the more pricey dishes and felt then that value for these dishes could be better. There are cheaper dishes to be had so it depends on taste. Wine offer is good with €5 corkage above O Briens prices (next door). You can also BYO with the corkage offer so its good to have the choice. Will visit again

The staff were excellent, so friendly, helpful and so organised both taking the order and serving the food. There was ten of us at the table and the whole experience was dealt with in a fluid, competent and friendly way. The food was delicious, hot and with very generous portion size. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the overall experience was excellent. Would definitely dine there again.

We had a meal here last night.The food was well presented and tasted nice the only fault that I have was that I'd expect if I am paying 20euro for a main dish that rice would be included and not have to be purchased separately.. The desserts were also lovely
