Vegan woman always has a ball in Thai, Chinese and Indian restaurants. Tamara is broad, bright, has big tables, is not crammed, the main waiter is great craic. The food - well, it is superb. The portions are huge, they could be 2/3 and still be enough. Great value and we were left chat and gossip for 2 hours after we finished our meal. Fab place, my 3rd time there and surely not my last.

The Brown Bear
Two Mile House, Naas, Kildare

Simply sperb. Vegan starter thrown together by the chef in a few minutes, sophisticated and tasty. Nice mains. Super dessert. Staff are top notch and helpful. One of the best places I ever had a meal in.

La Dolce Vita - The Chase
Carmanhall Road, Dublin 18, Sandyford, Dublin

Boring food. One veggie option, which makes me think, lazy chef. It is a basic place which gets plenty of returning customers, being one of the few restaurants in the business estate. I will not be rushing back. At least they are not greedy, their prices are reasonable.

Montys of Kathmandu
28 Eustace Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Monty\'s a sure bet: food, ambience, service, friendliness, cleanliness, menu, you name it: has it all. We walked in on a Saturday bank holiday at 8 and left at 23.30, with none of that hideous \"you have to vacate the table within 30 minutes\". Food is beyond delis, great selection of wines, we simply don\'t go often enough...!

Jimmy Chungs
Eden Quay, City Centre North, Dublin

Fresh tasty food, super-promo courteous service, handy location, our friends loved it and said they would be returning for sure. Wish they had more veggie variety, but they cook veggie dishes on request. Too expensive for a buffet, though: €85 for 4 ppl only 1 drink ahead, considering it is not a la carte and considering Chinese food is cheap to make. We go as a treat and when we don\'t know what time we\'ll have dinner at, as the place is big and there are always tables available.

Wallace's Taverna
24 Lower Ormond Quay, Dublin 1, City Centre, Italian Quarter, Dublin

Dinner with the inlaws there, 4 ppl+drinks and dessert less than €100, great taste and great value. I asked waiter for vegan pizza and got a de-lish one, everyone else cleaned their plates and dessert went down a treat. When you go, get waiter Orlando Bloom lookalike from Sicily! I left him a tip but I reckon his boss kept it :-( and buon appetito!

Chandpur Indian Restaurant
Main Street, Donegal Town, Donegal

Stopped off for a bite, ended up having a lovely full meal. Nice, albeit a bit obscure, starters (we had never seen anything like it in other Indian restaurants, but they were nice). Lovely mains, too. Nice service, quick and precise. Overall good experience!

Sligo City Hotel
Quay Street, Sligo Town, Sligo

Stopped off for lunch. Tasteless heap of fusilli pasta with a so-called wine sauce, must have been broth. My husband had a fish and chips smothered in mayonnaise, although in fairness the fish seemed fresh and nice. Overall nearly 40 quid for a disappointing feed. Made up by the staff, lovely and attentive, has to be said.

Fat Freddys
The Halls, Quay Street, Galway City, Galway

Attracted to it by small print \"Vega pizza available\". Slightly misleading, as all they have available at time of ordering was a pinch of tasteless vegan cheese. Was offered soup with butter and non-vegan bread - not impressed! Pizza tasted ok, I\'ve had much better. Table by the door with massive draft, I\'m sure there are better tables. Overall ok, not worth what we spent.

Lumanti of Nepal
88 Rathgar Road, South Dublin, Rathgar, Dublin

A spin-off from Monty's, it is nowhere near the quality of the food produced by its ex-sibling in Temple Bar. I ordered a hot vegetable curry, but received a bland Irish Stew minus the meat, absolutely tasteless and watery. My husband had a spinach and lamb dish, he was not impressed by it, would state that Tandoory Spicehot in Rathcoole, takeaway, is superior in both quality and taste. And value for money. We will not be rushing back, which is a pity, because the atmosphere is really nice, the staff are brilliant, the low tables upstairs offer choice to punters. However, going out for a meal should be an experience involving all senses, especially the palate... a no-no.

Tikka House (Kildare)
The Square, Kildare Town, Kildare

I went with a friends, we have been a few times. The food is always beautiful, the waitress was quite "invasive" with her questioning and interrupted good conversation a few times, which was annoying, but made up with the good manners and by leaving us in peace chatting after the meal was over for a long time. I will defo go back.

Anvil Bistro Restaurant
Saggart Village, Dublin 22, Saggart, Dublin

My husband and I went there last night, a very busy Thursday evening ahead of a Bank Holiday weekend. We were not too keen to go there to begin with, the place has a reputation for bland food and high prices. We were not disappointed... Saggart & surrounding does not offer a lot of choice for eating out, so we went there. Convenient: parking, and pub nearby, so the location allows the locals to hang out, even with a big group, without having to drive long distances. Food was ok, 4 choices for vegetarians, which is above average, in fairness, pricetag was too high, waiter was quite clumsy. Not a place to remember.

Byrnes Restaurant and Townhouse
Main Street, Ennistymon, Ennistimon, Clare

What a fab place! Hubby and I ventured into Ennistymon town (!) and headed into Byrne's for a romantic dinner. A trio of musicians sitting by the door, the fire was on, we were given a table with the view of the falls, alas in the dark at that stage. The candles on, the fresh flowers, the food was lovely, our waitress was superb. I would go back to Ennistymon tomorrow for Byrnes, Oh La La and Eugene's. What a fab weekend.

My Thai
The Beacon Hotel, Beacon Court, Dublin 18, Sandyford, Dublin

Had a work lunch there, the food is lovely I must say, even the standard €19pp was really tasty. I was surprised by a spicy soup which was not described as spicy but, me being a fan of hot food, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Others didn't. I then had a green curry which was finger-licking. We had a room all to ourselves, and we were served promptly and with courtesy. We had overall a reallly good time, I will definitely go back.

Tamara Restaurant
Unit 11/18 Belgard Square, Tallaght Town Centre, West Dublin, Tallaght, Dublin

Finger-licking food in a nice, airy environment, high ceilings, well lit, great altogether. Table of 6 with various tastes, a vegetarian and a vegan, all well looked after! Extensive wine list and quick service, but without the rush one gets at Thai restaurants at times. We were given two handfuls of sweets, too, to keep us going after the dinner. Tops place with great service, defo going back again.

Munchies Central Park
Central Park, Leopardstown, Dublin

Small selection of fresh ingredients. Vegan united: they have falafel!!! That they serve cold?!?! Wrap with falafel, tomato, relish and salad: €4.50=a joke. I spent more there for a wrap, drink and crisps than I would have for a sit-down hot and freshly made lunch. Not my idea of value for money.

Kathmandu Kitchen Nepalese & Indian Restaurant
18 Dame Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Location: great - if you are using public transport. I would say that parking around there could cost as much as your dinner, so watch out! This is the place to go when you are not in a hurry: 1. Food is dee-lish and one wants to enjoy it and 2. You are left in peace to enjoy it as opposed to being pushed out of the place as soon as you are finished. Food is yum yum, service is great, the beer too! GREAT service for someone on a special diet.

Siam Thai (Dundrum)
Dundrum Town Centre, South Dublin, Dundrum, Dublin

Location: excellent. Value for money: good. Menu: excellent. Service: speedy. Tastes: wow. I go back time and time again, ordering something new each time and I haven't been disappointed so-far. I am vegan and all items on the menu can be cooked without the very popular fish sauces the Thai cusine makes big use of. Their food is super!

Wallace's Taverna
24 Lower Ormond Quay, Dublin 1, City Centre, Italian Quarter, Dublin

Girls night out, small-ish group of 7, all enjoyed their starters and mains. I am vegan so not many options there other than pizza or pasta (there are no vegetarian mains at all), but I was advised on what ingredients are in the various pastas and enjoyed mine. Humongous wine list, a real treat.

Marios (Ranelagh)
39 Ranelagh Village, Dublin 6, Ranelagh, Dublin

Review of an Italian restaurant - by an Italian. It doesn't get much better than this. Mario's Ranelagh is probably the best Italian restaurant I've been to in Dublin, although the staff were a bit hard of hearing (uh? what?) and confused on what's on the menu (Italian lager, no we don't have any, we have Peroni...), we really had a great lunch there. For the usual pain the neck vegan here, I had choice of different pastas and went for the spaghetti with spinach and olives, yum-my! Pity for the spelling on the menu, which is all over the place, but that's the same with all "Italian" restaurants. I'd definitely go again and I definitely recommend it.

Vaughan's Eatery
105/107 Terenure Road North, Terenure, Terenure, Dublin

Lunch there with colleagues. Only 5 tables filled, so they must be doing something wrong. It may have to be with the time it takes to take an order, and the 20-25 minutes wait for some dishes. Not good for a business lunch. Surely they are busy in the evening: the food is fabulous, the vegetarian menu offers at least 3 vegan options, I had the asparagus and wild mushrooms and oh la la, it was good. I also asked for some bread, which was delicious. I have had a few lunches in Vaughan's and it never let me down. Tip: if in a hurry, call with your order ready, that will make your visit more swift.

Trocadero
St Andrew Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Went for dinner with clients from the States. Troc is a classic, a reliable choice. I had a delicious starter, simple salad with mango and a delicious dressing. Too much onion, tho. Although they do have a couple of vegetarian/vegan options, they also make additional dishes available, I was served a vegan Indian dish, which was average. We asked for additional veggies and a very good selection was presented to us. Dessert was dee-licious, finger-licking stuff. All the guests were highly satisfied.

Poppadom (Sligo)
34 O'Connell St, Sligo Town, Sligo

Vegan curry-dependant looking for a place to eat... and Poppadom's appears at the horizon! My fiance and I both love Indian food so it was a treat for both. Note on the door "we don't serve alcohol, bring your own" and off licence across the road. So armed with a Speckled Hen's and a Hobgoblin (we are posh drinkers) we made our way upstairs. Lovely atmosphere, nice menu, very good value for money. We weren't rushed in any shape or form, we enjoyed the candlelight dinner and then walked our way back to our accommodation. Overall a lovely meal out, portions are just right if you order starters. Will go back again.

Pizza Hut (Liffey Valley)
Liffey Valley Centre 22 Dublin, Liffey Valley, Dublin

Walked straight in - no queue - and were seated straight away. Nice menu, caters really well for vegans, including self-service salad bar. I had a pizza - no cheese, all veggies on top. Yummy. The waitress was extremely helpful, the atmosphere was nice, we were served quickly and all was good. I hadn't been in Pizza Hut in ages, I liked the experience and so did my friends!

Milano (Dawson Street)
38 Dawson Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

From the minute I walked in, the staff took notice of a new client - pet hate is when you walk into a restaurant and absolutely nobody takes notice. So we're on for a good start, nice! I am Italian, so I naturally go for a bruschetta and pizza. So. Bruschetta: super-fast service, it took less than one minute to arrive. Great. Taste was really good, so I was a happy camper. Pizza: I ordered a vegetarian with no cheese. I was asked straight away if I have a food intolerance, which is a great sign that staff are properly trained, a given in many countries but I haven't come across it that much in Ireland, good to see a little revolution happening. The pizza looked the business, the toppings tasted absolutely delicious, unfortunately the base was so tough I could only manage to eat half of it. Not impressed: the dough is the easiest thing to do, they obviously put cornflower in it, which is not an ingredient of pizza dough. We got the bill, where I was charged over €5 for an espresso coffee? Surely a mistake... All in all I thought the staff were fab, the menu is decent enough even from a vegan perspective - waiters patiently write down your order minus cheese, minus cream, minus pesto etc, bless 'em - the pizza was a major let down, my friends were also lukewarm happy about their food but I'm not going to give a review on their behalf. Will I go back? If my friends suggest we meet there I will, but it won't be my first choice.

Boulevard Cafe
27 Exchequer Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

A bit too crowded and crammed, the lights are a wee bit too dim. Food is nice, not an extended menu, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I'm a vegan and I got choice of main dishes without meat/dairy, v good sign that they cook their food fresh and from scratch. Service was extremely good, we were given special offers and good deals not on the menu. Super-handy location, we were only asked to vacate the table long after the bill was paid so we were also given time to chillax after dessert. Nice.

Brasserie Sixty6
66/67 Great South Georges Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

I absolutely love this spot. Ended up having dinner there with the girls one day, by pure chance. Turns out, they have a vegetarian menu with a lovely variety of choices, staff are fabulous, even when crowded you don't get a sense of being a sardine, as it so often happens in restaurants in town. Overall, thumbs up, I will defo go back.

Govindas Restaurant (Aungier Street)
4 Aungier Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

How great to have a veggie and vegan friendly spot to sit down and relax while enjoying a bit of grub! Food is always nice, slightly overpriced for what they offer, I find, but then the location possibly demands it. We love the hippy atmosphere!

Ballynahinch Castle Hotel
Recess, Connemara, Connemara, Galway

What a fantastic place! The hotel is beautiful, the staff are extremely helpful and well mannered, lovely to have a chat with and extremely professional. We only stayed one night, dinner was a bit overpriced, we found, but nice. I would love to go back, but I will call them beforehand to arrange a vegan meal!
