Brambles Cafe - Dundrum

Can safely say I\'ll never eat here again. Food was bland and lettuce was dirty.

Baan Thai (Leopardstown)
Central Park, Block P, Dublin 18, Leopardstown, Dublin

We had heard of this place before we tried it. Nice food overall but nothing that stood out. Asked for my green curry extra spicy and was told it is already spicy. I said I knew this but liked it very very spicy. Seemingly this could not be done and I was given extra red chilli on the side. Was pretty good curry though.

The Box Tree
Stepaside Village, South Dublin, Stepaside, Dublin

When I phoned to book a table I asked were there any deals or earlybird menus available. I was told the earlybird is until 7 but they were fully booked. I said ok,I\'ll leave as needed early booking. The guy on the phone then asked me to hold while he checked something. As luck would have it there was a cancellation and we got a table at 6.30. When we arrived there were on 2 other people in the restaurant....so unless a party of 90 had cancelled I was given a load of nonsense on the phone. If they don\'t want people availing of the earlybird then don\'t offer it. Wanted to mention to manager on night but as it was my wife\'s birthday I didn\'t want to cause a fuss. I had Hamhoc for starters, was bland and disappointing. My wife had a crab starter, she said it was very good. I had venison pie for main which was good but not amazing. My wife had chicken which was good but the sauce was very watery. For Dessert my wife had an appleand berry pie. It was ok but very had and pastry wasn\'t great. It also seemed like the plate had been prepared well in advance of us ordering as the fudge(think it was fudge) that dressed the plate was solid and wouldn\'t budge. I\'m usually not that fussy or picky but several things just shouted \'average at best\'. Our service was great but I consider the phone conversation as bad service. Our bill came to approx €84. 2courses & 3courses, wine plus coffee. Bit steep, for that price I expect excellence or greatness at least, as that\'s a lot of money. Won\'t be returning, much better food and value out there

Ananda
Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin 14, Dundrum, Dublin

Took my girlfriend here for her birthday and a new years eve meal in one. Atmosphere is excellent, nice and busy but not too noisy. The food is amazing!! Prawns for starters were fresh and huge, also crab meat in a little jar was delicious. Mains were made to our liking (HOT) and we had tea to finish. On top of all that we had a bottle of house white which was good. Total came to €110 ex tip, Yikes.... Won't be eating again unless I get a better early bird deal or something but will be keeping a look out for it for sure!

The Counter Dundrum
Pembroke District, (adjacent to the Mill Pond at Town Square), Dundrum, Dublin

Went here with my girlfriend as we were looking for a quick bite and nothing too fancy. Was good atmosphere and there was also footie on the tv so cant complain. I created my own burger and my gf got a basic off the menu, we shared a chili fries and had 2 cokes which in total came to over €35. I can safely say if we had have shopped around or checked menupages for a deal we would have got a 3 course meal for that. Burgers we just ok, bun was soggy and mine not a lot of flavour from any of the toppings....doubtful about the freshness!

Mussoorie Restaurant
Above Lakes Pub, Main Street, Blessington, Wicklow

I will agree with some of the other reviews about the length of time you have to wait for your orders, even when ringing them in it takes forever.... I havent went in and ordered but I can imagine not waiting around for an hour. However, the food is amazing, love the balti and the butter chicken. The starters are a little small for the price but I just don't order them. The dishes are made from fresh ingredients and you can definitely taste that. Will def use again but order well in advance

Koh
6-7 Jervis Street, Millennium Walkway, Dublin 1, City Centre, Italian Quarter, Dublin

As always we had a great meal here, the place is always full which usually mean you gotta get a drink at the bar first(nice trick,they send you to bar even when tables available), but nice cocktail bar. Food is nice and fresh, try the Betel leaves they are delicious, also big fan of the chicken satay. While I love the Curries i think they could be hotter... but I love hot spicy food so prob hot enough to suit everyone. Just try it!

Luigi Malones Restaurant
5/6 Cecilia Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

Hannigans Bar & Restaurant
International Hotel, Kenmare Place, Killarney, Kerry

Great service isn't dead thank god. Myself and my GF were in Killarney for our supervalue break. We had lunch in the cafe/bar and it was delicious,ok it was only a chicken sandwich and a bowl of soup but was v nice,had a pint of heineken and bottle Corona too. For our dinner we were booked into the restaurant and immediatly we felt v welcome,our server remembered our drinks from the lunch earlier and even though we wanted wine,when she asked if we want a pint and bottle of corona we both said yes and felt quite at home. Food was amazing,i had salad,nice crispy and fresh,gf had spring rolls,yum!! 2 perfeclty cooked steaks to follow and fresh chocolate desserts. Great hotel and restaurant

Salvador Restaurant
9 High Street, Killarney, Kerry

Myself and my girlfriend were looking forward to an italian for a couple of nights before we tried Salvadors, it looked busy(more so than the italian next door) so we gave it a shot. Our waitress wasn't pleasant at all,she escorted us to a table then threw the menus down and walked away before we even sat down,talk about welcoming!! Right away i was not impressed,after a 15 minute wait we finally got to order our drinks,after another 10min we got them(it wasnt packed out!). Warm white wine,not so nice,whats going on?. We had starters of bruschetta and seafood chowder,both were nice but nothing special. We both had pasta,i had spag bol which wasn't great,near the end of our meal the sour waitress asked if we'd like black pepper,yeah,15 minutes ago mayb. Left no tip, other than dont go there!!

I had forgotten about this place until i seen it agian on menupages,but thats not to say it wasnt a great restaurant. Place was quite busy and added to the night as there was 8 of us out for meal and few drinks. There curries are one of the best,nice and hot and full of flavour. Must go back soon

Crystal Boat Restaurant
Gallery Quay, Dublin 2, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin

I've had take away from here a few time and never had a problem with the food,but when we stopped by for some food to eat in it was different,place needs good cleaning,waitress didnt understand a word we said. Although food was cheap,if you dont feel like it came from a clean kithcen there's no such thing as value,so nil points on value cos didnt feel comfortable with it

We ate here by pure chance as we met with friends and picked the first place we seen. But I'm glad we did, was a delightful little place and great food, portions were a little small but excellent food. Try it

Rolys Bistro
7 Ballsbridge Terrace, Dublin, Ballsbridge, Dublin

My Girlfriend took me here for a treat, and I must say it definitely is that. Food was fantastic, probably the best I've had in Dublin in years. Service was great and homemade bread was delicious, just wish we had more. Only thing that ruined it was 5 golf fanatics sitting next to us. But that cant be helped. All in all not to be missed.

The Storehouse Restaurant - Closed
Friary Lane Naas, Naas, Kildare

All i can say is go here and have the steak medium rare is best. But you have your own preference of course. Atmosphere is great, can only say the staff are probably too good, they didn't leave us alone. But very polite and always trying to help, getting hungry now!!

Shanghai Chinese Rest
Flanagans Mill, Main Street, Sallins, Sallins, Kildare

After just moving to the area of course we had to try out the local Chinese. We had a take out so cant comment on the atmosphere but was pretty quite when collected food bout 8.30pm Friday night. Can't fault the food, was delicious and would definitely go back. Good value and clean food.

Pizza Hut (Dundrum)
Unit CSA, 2M Dundrum Town Centre, South Dublin, Dundrum, Dublin

Hard to have a bad word to say about a pizza parlour, pizza was yummy and hot when it hit our table. Although it did take a while to get there,but was very busy so understandable.But a nice place to eat with good special offers all the time.

West Wicklow House
Main st, Blessington, Wicklow

Tried here agian even though i hadnt been in a while and wasnt impressed the last time. Same old story though,small portions of average food,i knows its pub grub but no excue for what seems like microwaves and everything frozen. Got chicken curry which cost around €12 and it was tiny,asked to have more rice and was told it'd be extra. Final straw,not worth it im afraid
