Tani Japanese Restaurant
93 Terenure Road North, South Dublin, Terenure, Dublin, Area Code: Dublin 6W
Reviewed 23rd January 2014 ( visited 22nd December 2013 )A superb little Japanese restaurant!!! Extremely attentive staff and the best sushi I have ever had! They've closed for refurbishment and I can't wait til they reopen in February as I'm itching to get back! Can't give this place enough credit (:
6 Crow Streetle Bar, Dublin 2 , City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin, Area Code: Dublin 2
Reviewed 03rd August 2007 ( visited 03rd August 2007 )I have been here a few times, usually because I can't find anywhere without a reservation on a Saturday evening and its never busy here before 9 o'clock. I have always left satisfied. Plenty of mild dishes for those who don't like it too spicy and great fresh nan bread. Also its great for after a night out as its open until 4am! Staff have been excellent any time I've been here, plus, the place looks authentic and has Indian music if you like to get into the feel of the country who's food you’re eating.

137 Rathmines Road, Dublin 6 , South Dublin, Rathmines, Dublin
ABSOLUTELY APALLING SERVICE!!!! Im not usually one to complain, but can't resist after this experience. Went in on a Sunday afternoon, they weren't long open and there were only a few people in. We ordered 2 burgers and 2 sides. We were waiting patiently for an hour when we noticed customers getting their food who had come in half an hour after us. When we asked the waitress what the delay was, she replied the food was coming and that she had done something bad, whatever that meant. When our food arrived it was thrown on the table without so much as an apology or explanation, actually not even a word. The food was ok, but not great. When we finished and went up to pay, the waiter took my money and handed back my change without looking at me or speaking. I even made a point of saying thank you just to be polite but he turned and walked away. We felt like they were angry with us for asking why our food was taking so long! These guys disgusted me as I work in the service industry, somewhere where there is a level of respect for paying customers. I hope this place doesn't last long as they really don't deserve to!
Eden Quay, City Centre North, Dublin
Cheap and chearful. Not suitable for a relaxing sit down meal. More for a quick feed when in a rush. Im a big Chinese food fan and this is far from authentic. Its completely targeting Westerners, you won't see any Chinese in there bar the staff. The staff are extremely friendly and efficient. If You're starving and in a hurry this place is fine.
The Purty Kitchen (Temple Bar)
East Essex Streer, Temple Bar, Dublin
I had heard good things about Purty Kitchen in Dun Laoighre so I decided to give their Temple Bar venue a go. I wish I didn't now! I had the Surf n' Turf, the prawns (all 3 of them!!!) were tasty but the steak was terrible and over cooked (I asked for medium rare it came out well done) Another gripe I had was that was that we were waiting nearly half an hour to have our order taken and nearly an hour for the meals to arrive after that! They did give us home made bread while we waited but it wasn't baked right through. Tiny portions and large prices. Plus the band that were playing were terrible!!! Bring back Bad Bobs!
Fleet Street , Temple Bar, Dublin
The best thing about this place is the service. The staff are delightful and very helpful. I had the soup of the day which was lovely and the Chicken Pesto Bagnat which was also great. My friend had chicken wings and said they were mediocre at best, and meatballs which impressed her more. The price is fairly reasonable and they also do the best cocktails in town!
24 Suffolk Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
I went here recently with my girlfriend and was disgusted. Firstly the place was filthy! If the public areas are so dirty I don't want to think about the kitchen. We ordered a chicken supreme pizza which took almost 30 minutes to arrive. The pizza was poor, no taste of chicken and smothered in far too much tomato sauce (which I think may have been ketchup!) So we ate half of the pizza and decided to get out. We counted 5 waiters but waited and waited to pay but nobody came near us. We actually considered walking out! Eventually I went to the till to grab the attention of a waiter who told me to sit down and he'd bring my bill. Ten minutes passed before it arrived. Then we noticed that they charged us for 2 pizzas instead of one... Need I go on? Avoid this place at all costs!!!
King Sitric Fish Restaurant
East Pier, North Co. Dublin, Howth, Dublin
I was here for a work Christmas party and was blown away by the incredible food. I’m not usually a seafood fan but found everything we had here absolutely delicious! The waiters were very experienced and helpful and our champagne and wine glasses were never empty. They have a huge wine cellar with wonderful diverse options. The very best thing about this place though was that I wasn't paying!! It's so expensive and I can't imagine what the bill came to. But it was worth it, an absolute joy.
Zaytoon (Parliament Street)
14/15 Parliament Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
The best kebabs in town in my opinion. It's fast, cheap and satisfying, especially after a few drinks! Good value meal deals too, but my favourite option is the platter for 2! Delicious

Meeting House Square, Dublin 2 , City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin
I have been here quite a few times and never left disappointed. The menu is constantly changing so you won't always be able to get what you enjoyed last time, but there's always something for everyone. I recently learned that the wonderful chef Paolo has returned after 6 months abroad so I'll be rushing back! Sometimes its difficult to grab the attention of the waiters but once you do they're fairly friendly and helpful. Also, good, cheap jugs of wine.
Elephant & Castle
18/19 Temple Bar, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin
Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Expensive but well worth it. You can't make a reservation but they'll tell you a time to come back for a table so perfect if you fancy a couple of beers. Famous for their chicken wings, and they are great and in huge quantity. The ribs are excellent too. Recommended!
7 South Great Georges Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin
I love the food here. Enchiladas are my personal favourite, but everything I've tried is great! Service lets them down at times, but it appears they're under staffed rather inefficient. Usually very busy so you'll need a reservation. Nice decor and seems fairly authentic. The deep fried ice cream is beautiful!
105 Parnell Street, City Centre North, Dublin
This is a great little place in the best area in Dublin for Chinese food. Great lunch menu, which is available well into the afternoon. For around €9 for a starter & main course it can't be beaten for value. Also staff are very helpful and friendly. They have a varied menu, which suits both Asian, and western taste buds. A good meal for 2 shouldn't set you back any more than €40. Great food, service and value. 5 star all the way!
The Norseman Bar & Restaurant
28 Essex Street, Temple Bar, Dublin
I have eaten here many times and found it to be extremely consistent. For a pub it has huge variation in the menu and it's always quick service and huge portions. One thing for sure is you won't leave here hungry! It's a little expensive but great quality and value for money. Upstairs is very comfortable too. Highly recommended!
