Upon arrival mentioned 1 of our party was vegetarian and the waiter was very helpful explaining how it works, the different food options for vegetarians and showing the sauce and condiments ingredients list. He then said we could have the veg food cooked in the wok so no cross contamination or on cleaned down corner of grill. He told the cook & said when you bring bowls up to be cooked just mention it. We did so and was met with a sour faced grumble when we said we'd prefer it wok cooked. The woman then proceeded to moan about cleaning the grill, heating the wok and how long the wok would take etc.. We said it was fine we would wait. Whilst waiting & watching the various food cook we were relieved we stood our ground on the wok cooking as although the grill was cleaned for the veg the utensils weren't and were used on the variety of food items being cooked. The food did take a long time to arrive and sadly was overwhelmingly bland. The veggies tasted stewed rather than stir fried. Not a pleasant meal so no return visit planned.

The food looked amazing, we thought it was good value for money & seeing the guys cook it in front of you is great but the general flavor was just so bland. I don't think we will go again, very disappointing.

Was ok. Nice food and the spectacle of it being cooked there good and get-it-yourself so you get what you want. Happy enough with my time there.

Having heard so many great things about this place for years, I finally decided to try it out. What an experience! The food is seriously good quality and you can pick and choose what you like while eating as much as you like! The staff were really friendly and helpful. Excellent value for money. If you haven't already checked it out, now is the time!

Different to most of the usual Asian restaurants, in here you are given a buffet full of noodles and many different vegetables and you can fill your bowl as high as is possible with whatever you like. You then pick a small bowl of meat (fish, chicken, beef, some pre-seasoned, some not) and then you can fill the vegetable and meat bowls with any number of Asian sauces and spices, making the dish as mild or spicy as you like. You then join a queue in front of a cook with a massive semi-circle grill, your food is taken, cooked up and given back in a big bowl and when you return to your table there's a jug of water and a separate bowl of rice waiting for you. Really enjoyable place to eat, where you can customise the dish exactly to your tastes and at under €6 for lunch, it's very reasonable. Would recommend.

Great place for something different - create your meal from a huge range of possibilities of spices, sauces & ingredients & then watch it cooked before your eyes. Very good value & great for something interesting & tasty.

I had been meaning to try this place for a good while now but I was always apprehensive about how much vegan food would be available and I have a bit of a phobia about self service and buffets. Turned out, I should have gotten over myself a long time ago, not going here for a few years has indeed been a number of missed opportunities. I turned up here on a Friday afternoon around 1.45, the place was busy, but staff assured us from the onset they would have a table for us in a few minutes, and sure enough they did. We were duly seated and asked had we ever been there before. We explained we had not but our daughter had been in last week with a bunch of her student friends and had highly recommended it, we also said we were vegan and our daughter had informed us that anyone not eating meat got to take 2 bowls instead of one to the grill, which seems very fair as paying the same price as people who are eating meat does not seem fair on any level. She immediately informed us that she could get a part of the grill kept aside for us or have everything cooked from scratch in our own wok. We were very happy with the second option, to be on the safe side. The place was busy and lively but never felt chaotic, there were ample windows to the front of the restaurant where were were seated and the decor was nice and neutral but cosy, it did not have the functional feel of so many buffet restaurants. Everything was very well explained to us, we headed towards the buffet with our bowls, and were informed bowls of rice would be left at our table as well. Any sides or drinks or starters could also be ordered at the table and you paid afterwards, this made for a very pleasant dining experience. We filled our bowls full with many vegetables, courgettes, carrots, chinese leaves, beansprouts, onion, musrooms, peppers and tofu and chickpeas from the buffet, there was also a large tray of noodles, but no rice noodles which I feel would be a great addition to the menu, then there was another section for herbs and spices and then finally, sauces, where all the ingredients were clearly listed. Nearly all the sauces were vegan, amongst which were satay, black bean and sweet chilli. Even though the place was very busy in the peak of Friday lunch, there were no major queues and the service area was nice and compact. We arrived at the cooking area and the chef had already been informed by the waitress that we needed a separate wok. We were told it would take a few minutes. Whilst we were seated at our table, another waitress came down and told us everything would be ready shortly. The staff really were exceptional and showed great efficiency and pleasantness during the busiest part of the day. Unbelievably, one trip to the buffet was only 5.90, there was also an all you can option for 10 euro, but I personally could not even eat everything from the one trip, given that we were allowed two bowls. We decided to order a side of popadoms with dips, which were also very good value at 2.50 and a glass of lunch wine each, again very well priced at 3.50 per glass, with strong berry overtones and a decent glass too. Our food arrived down, freshly cooked, piping hot and absolutely delicious. This place is pretty amazing. I'm sorry I left it so long to go here and I was heartened to see so many people just having the veg option. It was wonderful to have such a filling healthy tasty lunch right in the city in a lovely atmosphere with very helpful staff for an unbelievable price of 5.90. We shall be back.

Myself and my partner have been here a number of times for lunch. We availed of the Early Bird Lunch Special for E5.90 This consisted of a single trip to the main course buffet, containing a wide selection of meats, veg and sauces. On arriving at our table we also got a bowl of steamed rice and a large jug of water (free of charge) Can not fault this place - excellent value for money
