Reviewed 21st August 2015 ( visited 09th August 2015 )I've bee going to koh since the first month it opened. It's one of my favourite places to grab a bite and a cocktail or a delicious glass of wine. I returned after about a year absence last week and it's as good as ever although this time with cocktail specials which I was delighted to see as hated paying the same amount on a cocktail as I did for a lunch dish (even though both equally as delicious!). Love the laid back relaxed feel of the lounge and already looking forward to my next dinner there!

Reviewed 11th May 2015 ( visited 02nd March 2015 )Had a great evening meal here a few months back. Myself and my partner only ordered 2 mains but a feast was delivered. Very fresh and tasty and the price was very reasonable. I will definitely return!
45 Sundrive Road, Crumlin, Crumlin, Dublin
Moved into the area a few months back and at first I walked by the place - i just assumed it was a cafe type place that didn't do evening food. A few weeks back I checked the menu and decided to give it a go. Went in on a Saturday night and the place was buzzing! We were told they were fully booked but they soon made room for the two of us. Big enough menu and very reasonable. We didn't know it was Byob so the bf ran out for a bottle- no corkage fee either which is incredible...my starter of prawns wasn't amazing but my partners bruchetta was lovely and both our mains (salmon +sea bass) were very good. Good sign of the food coming out cooked well on such a busy night. Staff really nice too. Will definitely return!
The Rowan Tree Restaurant @Ashdown Park Hotel
The Coach Road, Gorey, Gorey, Wexford
After booking into a different restaurant close by that unfortunately did not suit everyone on the night our party of 11 got a very last minute booking at this restaurant. From the moment we got in the staff could not do enough for us. We were celebrating a 70th and brought our own cake which the restaurant very generously served with sorbet and cream. Only negative of the night was one of our party ordered a steak medium well which was significantly smaller than two other members of our party. The host did come straight over but the excuse given was that hers was smaller because the way it was cooked, what we didn't realise at the time was that one of the other members of our party that ordered the same steak had asked for it well done so unless the orders were mixed up it wasn't exactly a valid excuse. Anyway very small complaint, we all really enjoyed the venue, food and staff and I for one would certainly return.

Bridge Street, Westport, Westport, Mayo
Arrived in Westport on a Sunday night and ended up here as a few other restaurants were fully booked. We has about a 40 min wait to get the table but jumped at this as were not sure we would get fed anywhere else!! Service at the bar for drinks was attentive and fast, bar staff were pleasant. I ordered a seafood symphony which was nice although a little expensive as it didn't really contain a whole lot of fish! My partner had vegetarian fajitas which were very disappointing as there was very little on the plate. He was give. 2 wraps and the veg/tiny salad he received barely filled that. For almost 17e I felt that was such a let down. The bill for 2 small mains and 4 drinks was 61e. Would give this place a miss for dinner if I was to return unfortunately
Sage Restaurant (Mayo)
10 High Street, Westport, Mayo
Myself and my partner went to Westport on a midweek holiday. As we are both vegetarians this place caught our eye as They had a vegetarian menu. First off I felt the restaurant itself was very inviting with nice decor, We were shown the specials by a lovely waitress however when we inquired what the vegetarian soup was (advertised on the vegetarian menu) we were told there was none. This was a let down as there was a huge jump in cost of vegetarian starters with the next being almost 9e. We were then given a small 'bread platter' which was a nice touch. The wine was surprisingly well priced and we had a lovely bottle if Chardonnay. The vegetarian mains were delicious, I had spring rolls which were light yet filling and my partner had the tart which was one of the nicest I have ever tasted. We split a braklava for desert which was yummy. On ordering the bill we were given an after dinner shot if schnapps I believe it was? Very yummy. All I. All a great dinner and I would definitely return if in Mayo again, hopefully the next time though they have that veg soup!!
Farm Restaurant (Leeson St)
133 Upper Leeson St, Dublin 4, City Centre South, Dublin
I would have rated the value lower only for that we had a voucher. Myself and my partner went here with our 29e voucher which entitled us to 60e worth of food. The restaurant itself is like sitting in someone's living room. Very stuffy and you can hear every conversation. I got chicken, my partner who is a vegi ordered veg skewers on cauliflower rice, he also ordered a side of chips. We got a bottle of House wine between us and the overall bill came to just shy of 70e. The food was unfortunately nothing special - chicken was nice but small. My partners vegi dish was disappointing and he was starving after it, even with the side of chips which cost 5e. It was just one skewer with 3 pieces of hallumi and a bit of veg. Nothing substantial about it. So, 2 mains, 1 side and 1 bottle of house wine for 70e.. Luckily we only paid 40e overall with voucher but we won't be back.
The Larder Restaurant
8 Parliament Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
I have been here on 2 occasions now. Once for a late breakfast/lunch and another on a voucher purchased for evening meal. The first time myself and my partner got fry ups, my partner is a vegi so instead of meat he got hallumi which was just beautiful. I was almost regretting getting the normal breakfast! The second time we went was for an evening meal which was nice But didn't rate as highly as the brunch!

7-9 Exchequer Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Myself and my partner visited here for the first time on a Sunday afternoon. I've always wanted to try it but got lured away by another restaurant close by! I got a sushi platter and my parent has a fish bento. The sushi platter was really good, I have had better but I would def rate it up there. My partner thought the bento was nice but lacked a bit, he has definitely had better in other dublin japanese restaurants. It was 5.20 in the day and I believe we still got lunch prices which was good. However We ordered 2 glasses of house wine, at 7.50 a glass I thought this was a bit on the steep side for a house wine!
11/11a O'Connell St, (Above Peter Mark), City Centre North, Dublin
Just had lunch here for the first time today. I opted for the sushi bento which I think is a steal at just under 12e (that includes miso soup). My partner had the vegi bento which was 9.50.. Both dishes were excellent, great portions also. I'm on a bit of a 'sushi mission' across dublin at the moment to find my favourite sushi diner and so far this place tops the list. I can't wait to go back to give the evening menu a go.
