Reviewed 10th December 2013 ( visited 05th December 2013 )

I went to Copper and Spices for a cookery demonstration last week and all I can say is WOW! There were 3 of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The owner did the demo and showed us how to cook a starter (lamb koftas), main course (South Indian Chicken Curry), rice and a vegetable side of chickpeas. He explained everything really and also allowed us to help a bit too. We sat down and enjoyed the meal afterwards which was delicious. He also promised to email all the info and recipes from that nite and I can't wait to receive it and host an evening at home with friends. I can't speak highly enough of the service he gave us. Everything about the nite was great from atmosphere to hosting to the delicious food. I am looking forward to my next visit already.

The Golden Palace
at The Viscount Pub, 89 Swords Road, North Dublin, Whitehall, Dublin

We visited The Golden Palace this week for the first time. We went with friends who have been there a few times before. We were a group of 8 (4 adults and 4 children). The all you can eat menu cooked to order was amazing at €16.99 per person and children under 5 eat free. This allowed us to has a taste of most of the menu. The food was really tasty and fresh and most importantly hot! We enjoyed every bite of every dish - and we had a lot!!! MOST of the staff were very friendly and attentive. HOWEVER the lady who greeted us as we walked in, (told us her name was Chloe and she was the manager) was the rudest person I have ever come across in a restaurant. We knew since time of booking that they needed the table back at a certain time and that wasn't a problem. She told us as soon as we walked in the door to eat fast because she wanted the table back quickly. She must have said it 3-4 times before we even got to our table and if that wasn't enough she came to our table as we were starting to eat our main courses to bark at us and tell us we had 10 mins left so hurry up!!! I was absolutely horrified at her behaviour. She also was not very welcoming to our 4 children probably because 3 of them were under 5 and therefore not paying for meals. They seemed to be a burden to have in her restaurant. We stayed and had a drink afterwards in the bar downstairs and still nobody came for our table which we were rushed in and out for. I will not tar all the staff with the same brush as they were all lovely and very attentive and helpful. It didn't matter to this one lady that we were not happy as at this price they will undoubtedly get somebody else to fill our table whether we return or not.

Captain America's Blanchardstown
Unit 40 Blanchardstown, Retail Park 2 Extension Dublin, West Dublin, Blanchardstown, Dublin

Visited this restaurant on Saturday evening after shopping with my husband. The service was fantastic and very fast. We were very well looked after and our server couldn't have been more helpful. Unfortunately that's all the praise I have for this place. The food was below average. We had nachos to start which were 'nice'. The salsa was ok. U'd make a better one at home. But it was tasty enough! For main we had the steak fajitas and baby back ribs. The portions were quite big which for us was a good start but unfortunately that was the only good point about the mains. The fajitas weren't bad but the ribs were very fatty. There was actually more fat than meat on them. If it wasn't for the sauce on top of them I probably wouldn't have been able to eat them. Overall it was slightly disappointing and I wouldn't be rushing back. I really wasn't expecting too much from this burger joint but got even less than I had hoped for.

China Garden (Meath)
Brews Hill, Navan, Meath

My husband and I went to China Garden on sat eve to celebrate my birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed every bit. The staff are so friendly and attentive. Michelle the owner is always there and takes time to speak to everyone throughout the evening which makes it very personal and intimate. I started with the salt and chilli scallops which were divine and followed with king prawn with hot garlic sauce and I asked for some cashew nuts thrown in extra which was no problem at all. It's was all delicious. My husband had chicken curry samosa to start and need with cashew nuts in hot pepper sauce for main and he also thoroughly enjoyed his meal. Can't wait for our next occasion out in China Garden.

We visited Copper and spices again for my husbands birthday and again I couldn't fault the service or the food. The meal was amazing. Everything from start to finish was delicious and presented fabulously. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. I can't was to visit again.

The Wishing Well - Cavan
Main Street, Kingscourt, Cavan

I'm delighted to be the first to review this restaurant. I've been eating here regularly for a few years now and have always enjoyed everything about it. The staff are always very friendly and very accommodating. The evening menu has a great selection and I've worked my way thru most of it at this stage. The food is always cooked to my liking and very tasty. It's more than pub grub in the wishing well with a selection of steaks, fajitas, pasta, seafood, vegetarian dishes and even burgers. There is something for everyone. They have a good lunch menu too with different specials daily which always seems to do well as the place is always very busy.

Haveli Indian Cuisine
Morris House, Douglas, Cork

We got a takeaway from Haveli last nite to ring in the new year. We were staying with in laws in cork and saw that Haveli got great reviews so decided to try it out. I have to say the food was really good. We all enjoyed it. We got chicken tikka and sheesh kebab to share as starter and then chicken curry, chicken tikka masala and chicken balti as mains with sides of rice, naans, poppodums and chutneys. It was all very tasty. The staff who served me in takeaway were very friendly and the restaurant looks very nice (small and intimate). Next time we are in cork we will definitely be eating here. The only complaint I could make is that it is slightly pricey for a takeaway. Each main dish is €12 which I feel is an awful lot.

Copper & Spices Restaurant & Wine Bar
Ludlow Street, Navan, Meath

We visited Copper and Spices yesterday evening for the first time. As big Indian/Asian food lovers we were looking forward to trying somewhere new. We got a voucher on here on menu pages which was for 2 starters, 2 mains and 2 desserts for 29.99 which was super value. I had the chilli prawns to start and then the south indian curry and my husband had the chicken samosa and the chicken tikka masala and all of our food was delicious and presented really nicely! We thoroughly enjoyed it all and have already decided to visit here again. I would recommend Copper and Spices to anyone looking for a good Indian in Navan.

Zucchini's Restaurant
18-20 Blackcastle Square, Navan, Meath

I have eaten here a few times and have always come away happy. We went to Zucchinis for our wedding anniversary a couple of weeks ago and I couldn't have asked for a better meal, atmosphere or service. The staff were so friendly and helpful and extremely polite. The place was absolutely buzzing. There wasn't a free table in the place and even under pressure on a very busy nite the staff bent over backwards for every one of their diners as usual. They food was second to none and we really enjoyed our meal. Will definitely be visiting again soon. Thinking of bringing my overseas visitors at Christmas as I know they will LOVE it too.

Paddy Jordan's
Station Road, Ballina, Mayo

My husband and I ate here last night for the first time as we were visiting Ballina for a couple of days. They offer a really good early bird menu for 2 courses for E15.99. I had the tempura chicken to start and my husband had the soup, both of which were very tasty. For our main dishes I had the Lamb Jalfrezi (lamb was so tender it melted in my mouth) - delicious - and my husband went for the homemade burger which he thoroughly enjoyed. The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere and decor were really lovely. Over all it was great value for money which is very important these days and great food too. We will visit Paddy Jordan's again if we are in Ballina again.

Khan Tandoori
19 Watergate Street, Meath, Navan, Meath

I LOVE Indian food and eat from this restaurant quite often (both sitting in and takeaway). The staff are so friendly and helpful and most importantly The food is great too. My husband always has The Chicken Tikka Masala which is very creamy and VERY tasty while I like something a little hotter so I really enjoy the madras or Balti. The set menu in the evening is really good value for money at 16.99 per person. They have now started a BYO wine and do not charge corkage which is great. I love this restaurant.

China Garden (Meath)
Brews Hill, Navan, Meath

I've been eating here regularly for about 25 years!! Its that good! China Garden is without a doubt the best chinese restaurant I have eaten in anywhere in the world. I cant say enough good things about it. The food is second to none and the staff are always very friendly and accomodating. They also do a great lunch menu although I prefer the full menu in the evening. My favourite dish is the szechuan chicken/prawns. I have never had a complaint here and intend to continue eating here.
