“Giraffe is now called "Sweet Chilli"”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

We always liked Giraffe for a quick bite and casual meal, so after a theatre trip decided to drop in for something to eat. The name/management has changed to Sweet Chilli so we decided to give it a go. We were quickly shown to our seats and given a menu. There was plenty of food to choose from, most of which was mexican style, which we love and there was also a specials board. We were not disappointed with our dishes and the portions were good. The restaurant is not licensed but there is an off license next door and my husband was able to get a bottle of wine for us. The staff were friendly and we were happy with our service. I would recommend this place for a casual meal if you are into spicy food!

“Great early bird prices”
Reviewed 2 February 2012

This is a nice little bistro in the heart of Stranmillis. It is beloved by students( the better off ones whose parents can afford the higher rents in the area). I have been a few times, the latest on Tuesday night. We arrived in at shortly after 7pm but the lovely waitress still allowed us to order from the early bird menu. I think it was two courses for £12.50. The service was swift, efficient, friendly. The food was, unfortunately for me, not as good as on previous occasions. But that might have been down to my order- pork belly- as my dining partner raved about his choice
