Lumanti of Nepal restaurant

Reviewed 27th August 2014 ( visited 26th August 2014 )We came in with the Menupages voucher for a two course meal and a glass of wine and had a very pleasant evening. The food was top quality (momos and squid for starters, yum and Jhol and pork tareko for mains) and the service prompt and attentive. Atmosphere was nice and relaxed with soft traditional music in the background. When in Rathgar looking for a great place to eat, don't miss it.
Ocha Teppanyaki & Sushi Bar restaurant
2 Main Street, Maher's Terrace, Dundrum, Dundrum, Dublin, Area Code: 14
Reviewed 13th March 2013 ( visited 12th March 2013 )If you are looking for authentic Asian food, very fresh and full of flavour, this would be the place to go. The experience was stellar. We were served by very attentive and friendly staff and the food was superb. Weather you like spicy or delicate, the soups (we had Tom Yum and Ocha), starters (chicken dumplings, hotate wasabi) and mains (Panang,Ha Chan) were absolutely top class. If you're in Dundrum, don't miss it.

Nice little place. We received a very warm welcome and things only got better from there. The food was plentiful and tasty, service engaging but not over the top. The lovely fruity Lebanese wine was a great surprise. Good value and cosy atmosphere, too. Recommended.
91A Rathgar Road, South Dublin, Rathgar, Dublin
This is a real gem of a restaurant. Some unexpected and delicious flavours in the food we haven't had in an Indian restaurant before. The atmosphere very relaxed and the service discreet and efficient. Definitely worth repeating the whole experience!
Toto Ristorante Italiano
8 Talbot Street, City Centre North, Dublin
Went there with voucher. Food was good, atmosphere not bad. The problem was the staff who decided to interpret voucher their way. For example, our deal included supplement for steak, but we were promptly informed that “Steak is a meat, so we have to pay extra for any meat.” The final bill was too much with voucher.
11 Upper Camden Street, Dublin 2, Camden Street, Dublin
Visited the restaurant with the menupages voucher but planning to visit again soon even without oneas the prices are more then reasonable for the quality of food you get. It doesn't promise much when you're in at first but the staff, the relaxed atmosphere and above all the standard of food completelywins you over. If you are looking for a laid back kind of place with delicious food, this is it.
Gourmet Tart Company
Monksfield, Salthill, Galway
Do not pass this place by when you are in Galway. I visited the restaurant twice in a space of a year (I don't live in the county) and the quality and variety of the menu was superb both times. This time I went for the pork terrine to start and lamb ragout to continue and my companion went for the parsnip and honey soup and half chicken with tarragon stuffing. Everything was delicious and very well presented. We topped it off with a raspberry and custard tart to share. Yum. Not to forget the friendly and efficient staff and relaxed atmosphere. Ticks all the boxes for me and my family.
Buenos Aires Grill
Unit 2 Castle Way, Golden Lane, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
We went for the surf-n-turf with a voucher on a Tuesday evening. The restaurant was quite busy for a weeknight , the staff quick and attentive. The food was a bit of a hit and miss. There was plenty of it. Taste-wise the prawns were tender and tasty, rolled fish flavorsome and well cooked and the ribs sticky and delicious but the steak was was a let down as it was quite chewy and there was another piece of fish which was overcooked. The chips and the side of roasted vegetables were very well prepared. I also liked the atmosphere; relaxed with nice Latino sounds in the background. All in all, not spectacular but very good value for money. I would go again.

Kathmandu Kitchen Nepalese & Indian Restaurant
18 Dame Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Just got back from the restaurant; definitely deserving a good few positive comments. We came in with the Menupages voucher for two starters, two mains and two glasses of wine. From the moment we came in the atmosphere was welcoming and relaxed and the service wasn't imposing yet they were quick and friendly. The food was excellent. I especially liked the Chef's mixed curry which had lamb, chicken and prawns all cooked to perfection, tender and juicy in a lovely creamy sauce. Perfectly balanced dish; spicy but not to the point that you can't taste all the other flavours in it. We topped the meal with a perfect cup of Chai, mildly spiced and heart-warming. Good value even without voucher.
Citron @ Fitzwilliam Hotel
The Fitzwilliam Hotel, St Stephen's Green, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Forget about the fancy, Michelin star, expensive restaurants! This place has it all: superb food, relaxed atmosphere, discreet and efficient staff, I simply cannot find a single fault. It's like a child coming to a sweet shop. Everything you see and taste is both amusing and delicious! For starter I had parsnip and vanilla soup, more out of curiosity than anything else. It was fantastic. Delicate and warm with a little tortellini in there for extra flavour and texture. My husband had melt -in -the -mouth duck he enjoyed very much. For mains beef and poussin with langoustine, again beautifully presented and explained by the waiting staff, again delicious. And in the end, to top it all of with something light and colourful, strawberry and basil soup. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. We are definitely coming back!
La Dolce Vita - The Chase
Carmanhall Road, Dublin 18, Sandyford, Dublin
Never had anything but a great meal in this restaurant. Went on different occasions(staff lunch, dinner for two, family meal) and they seem to cater for all occasions and tastes. The staff are always quick to serve, in good humour and discreet. The food is delicious and well presented. Last time we went for a family meal; starters and mains for four. We had different things from seafood to cured meats for starters to pizzas and pasta dishes for mains and you couldn't falter them. Definitely a place to rely on for tasty food and nice atmosphere every time. Can't wait to go again.
Quattro 4 Pizza
8 Sussex Tce, Sussex Road, City Centre South, Dublin
Went for a family meal with a voucher. The place was quiet at the start but filled up nicely. The staff were pleasant and the place had a family friendly buzz and relaxed atmosphere. The food was tasty and plentiful. The highlights definitely polpette, excellent pizzas and tiramisu. Would come back with the family again. Good value for money and the kids loved it.
Konkan Indian Restaurant Dundrum
1 Upper Kilmacud Road, Dundrum Village, Opp Dundrum Garda Station, Dundrum, Dublin
We went for the tasting menu and loved it. The selection of starters was presented in such a way that you could make your own flavour combinations and it was delicious. We've tasted indian food lots of times but there were some interesting and tasty bites we've never had before.The mains were also plentiful and delicious; we had three differently flavoured naans, too. There was enough food there to be comfortably shared by more than two people. The restaurant itself is lovely, nicely decorated. The servers very friendly and attentive. Overall, good little place with reasonable prices and great food.
Asian's Best Restaurant
The Coach House, Ballinteer Ave, Ballinteer, Dublin
This restaurant provides you with a complete positive experience.The food is delicious, the place nicely decorated, the staff very polite and discreet when you don't need them and extremely nice and helpful when you do. The place has a Teppanyaki bar so we decidid to give it a try. It was fabulous. We ordered two specials - Asian's Best and Seafood. The chef was really skillful and the food he made in fron of us delicious and colourful.Everything was juicy and succulent and well cooked. We couldn't find a single fault to any od the dishes. We also ordered a bottle of wine to compliment the food and it was very reasonably priced and nice. We came with the Menupages voucher and the value of the whole experience was great. We would have gladly paid the full price - it was that good. Going back again very soon.
38 - 40 Parliament Street, City Centre South, Dublin
Having been there before pleased with the food and the atmosphere, I decided to go again. We had a Menupages voucher for two - two starters, two mains/tapas and two desserts plus a glass of wine for €40. I ordered lemon pepper calamari which were just OK(not chewy but not that flavoursome either)and my husband had a big portion of ribs with potato salad, again lacking in flavour. We thought, well, it's fine, the mains will be better. I had a paella which looked and tasted more like Uncle Ben's rice with micromussels. It seemend like it was scraped off the bottom of yesterday's pot and microwaved(oh yes, and no sign of chicken or prawns in the paella!). I also had meatballs which were pretty dry and AGAIN lacking in flavour. The tomato sauce saved it a bit.My husband had duck which had disgusting, gooey skin and tough meat. After that we had to wait for the dessert for ages; we nearly decided to pay and leave without it. When it finally arrived it was, surprisingly, quite nice, but small. The servers were polite once they showed up; we had to wait quite long for the food and once it was on the table we were wondering why it took them so long to prepare such poor dishes.We definitely won't be back.
