Visited here for breakfast/ lunch with my Dad today. The staff are so slow it is unbelievable - 3 people ahead of me in the sandwich bar q & yet was waiting 20mins to be served. Additional staff popped in behind the counter & then disappeared again. They ignored the q of 12 people waiting to be served. I then joined the q for a hot breakfast & that took 10 minutes to be served - only 2 people being served ahead of me by 2 staff members. Seriously - how did it take so long??! I had to call a staff member over to serve me. Sadly, the sandwich bread had gone a bit stale by the time I got to sit down & eat it! My poor Dad was passing out with the hunger. I would suggest giving this place a miss for food unless you don't mind waiting extraordinary lengths of time to be served.

I am a regular diner in Kays, mostly to enjoy one of their fine scones. I visited it yesterday with my daughter, who was not happy to be served a cold baked potato. Unfortunatly this is a regular occurance and something I think they are going to have to address. It was very frustrating for my daughter as she was really hungry and had to wait over ten mins for it to come back to her. It is a pity because apart from this complaint I really like the restaurant. It is a busy place with shoppers resting their weary legs and having a welcome cuppa. The atmosphere is nice and friendly, with plenty of seating. If they solve the problem of the cold food it really could be the best place to eat in Blanchardstown shopping centre.

I eat in Kays anytime I visit Blanchardstown Shopping Centre and its a great little cafe. I have tried the wraps/soups/salads and always enjoy their food. The staff are always pleasant and the place is nearly always packed, which I think is a great sign so i would definitely recommend the place.

Dining there almost every weekends. Roast beef or chicken is always well cooked and delicious! I had a fried rice in cantonese style with chicken last weekend - wasn't gareat at all, and my stomach was upset next day. So would not recommend that type of food over there. But I like traditional food in that restaurant and would come back again! Great to have a nice meal after exhausting shopping :)

Myself and my husband had lunch here on christmas eve, it was very busy but we managed to get a table. There was a bakery, a Wok Station, a hot food counter, and a sandwich section, So we opted for the sandwiches and chips (Special Meal Deal offer). It cost €20 for two sandwiches with chips and bottled water which we thought was reasonable as what we had was fresh and filling. It was perfect for a quick bite to eat whilst shopping. Service was good although extremely busy.

I usually avoid this place as it's always so crowded, however I went in last week and I'll never go back. I ordered the Minestrone soup clearly labelled with a V symbol and also confirmed by staff that it was suitable for vegetarians. I ate some only to discover that there was some sort of animal flesh in it. I've never been so disgusted. When I went up to the staff member who served me she just looked at me as though I had two heads and said "oh it must not be vegetarian". Then she spoke to a number of chefs, came back and said that it was supposed to be veggie, hence the V symbol, but the chef decided to add meat. Then they took down the sign. No apology or anything.

I visited this place at approximately 4pm on a weekday and it was totally packed. There was a really good selection of food and it seems like a good option for a bite to eat in the Blanchardstown centre. Service was efficient. I had soup and rolls, which were nice, but nothing extraordinary... I wasn't quite sure what to make of the atmosphere.... There are no windows so it is very dark, which I didn't like, but in the upstairs bit they have booths with tvs showing Sky News, which suited me well at the time. Due to the darkness of the place I wouldn't be in a rush to go back, but the food range was great and it seemed very popular so I imagine there was more to it than I realised on my first visit!

I love the food here and the different choices they cater for, there is a bakery, a Wok Station, a hot food counter, and a gourmet sandwich section. Food is always delicious here, it does be quite busy, extra seating upstairs
