This is a wonderful spot to go if you are looking to get away from heavy, traditional Irish food and get something with some more flavor! We were a little on the early side for dinner which meant there was a well-priced dinner special. Highly recommend.

Had Tofu noodles here during week. They were delicious. Nice consistency and the sauce was very flavoursome. However there wasn't much vegetables and I got no green beans despite them being listed in the dish contents. Our food also arrived very quickly which makes me doubt it was prepared fresh. Staff were efficient but not overly friendly. The reason I'm... More

Stopped in for lunch after seeing the high position on Trip Advisor. There wasn't many there so we were shown a few tables we could choose from & given a nice friendly welcome. Service was quick - starters came out very quickly. Went for Samosas for starter - didn't find them anything exciting, thought they could have more of a... More

It was a busy evening when we booked a last minute table. The menu is extensive with a good selection of craft beers and wine. The Chicken satay starter was really good as was the Chilli Beef main course. Early bird menu of €23.95pp for any starter, main course and a coffee up to 6:30 even Saturdays, great value. Service...

We visited having read the reviews. The service was good, the food arrived well timed. We had the combo starter which we enjoyed, followed by a red curry and a prawn dish. Both were good. It is noisy so not a place to linger--eat and move on.
