“Consistently top class”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

I have been going to this restaurant ever since it opened ,nearly 20 years ago.It was one of the first upmarket restaurants in Dublin.Over many years I have introduced numerous friends to Kites,and each and every one of them have been pleased,and go back.In addition to great food the standard of service is also exceptionally good.The dinner banquet menu is highly recommended.In more recent times, and with the recession in mind they have availability of a choice of really good wine at very competitive prices.

“Great chinese food in this popular restaurant”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

Kites has been around for years and has maintained its good reputation for excellent food and service in that time.

It is very popular with good reason - well worth a visit for dining on excellent chinese food

“My Favourite Chinese Restaurant in Dublin”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 via mobile

Firstly, I have to say that we always eat here in a group and always take the set menu for five or more people. There are usually ten or twelve of us. In spite of the numbers, they are always professional and efficient in service. People used to take-away Chinese food may feel it is expensive but I feel the food is really delicious and worth the price. We have never been disappointed about ten years.

“Average at best ”
Reviewed 27 February 2014 via mobile

After a long day at work we decided to get chinese and chose kites. The group I was with experienced the service as quite poor, in fact the staff appeared quite dismissive at times. We felt they wanted to be helpful, but it didn't come across. I asked for a small portion if rice and was duly told they only have one size, thinking fried rice would be the better option what I received looked and tasted like standard steamed rice with some peas in it. Not a great dinner at all.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 27 February 2014 via mobile

Family wanted to go to Wongs in ranelagh didn't realise same closed due to fire so went onto trip adviser
For ballsbridge area and chanced Kites. An excellent outcome good buzz for a Tuesday night. Staff very friendly and helpful and chatty. Boys devoured spare ribs and duck pancakes best they ever had was verdicted. We had prawn dish and fillet steak beautifully presented and goergoues. Ice cream to finish scrumptious. Good reasonably priced wine list. Bill with 10% automatic tip not the cheapest in town but you more than get what you pay for well worth the price for quality ambience and service overall a fab night out
