“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013 via mobile

Wow, a great find, great authentic food, large portions too. Mainly frequented by Chinese and Koreans, because the food is soooo good. I had Sea Bass sweet and spicy... Gorgeous! Best fish I've ever eaten. The waitress was helpful, recommend you go with at least 4 people and stare... The stew looks great, wish I could have tried more!

“farewell lunch with friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2013

we ware in Dublin looking for a nice place for lunch with our friends that are leaving the country and my wife said, I know a nice place, was there a few weeks ago. So, she guided us to Hilan Chinese & Korean Restaurant.
When we entered, the first thing what was remarkable is the Asian hospitality. The place was not busy when we ware there, so we could make our choice for a table. The girl came with the menus and water. An amazing choice of food from Chinese and Korean cuisine. We took each something different, so we could taste from each other. Myself had sisling frog legs. Have to say, it was a big, big portion but it was so tasteful, I had it all. And when you compare price/quality/quantity/taste, it's very big value, more than 100%. We had only 1 dish and we ware more than full and the 4 of us ware very happy about the choice of the restaurant ... certainly a 5 star worth.

“Hilan Korean Chinese”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

Our party of 9 had more food than we could eat. Including drinks our bill was 21 euro a person. We took home at least 3-4 servings for the next day.We had hot pot for 2, chef special red curry, pineapple shrimp, sweet/sour chicken, lamb in cumin sauce, shrimp something, a plate of 20 dumplings, 6 spring rolls, and sake and beer. A delicious, excellent value.

“Budget Friendly Authentic Chinese Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2013

Been here a few times and it's always full of Chinese and Korean people, a sure sign that it's good! Great value and large portions. Yu Xiang Rou SI (garlic chilli pork) is an old favourite of mine and here it doesn't disappoint. Dying to try their Korean BBQ next! Order the dumplings as a side if you're hungry (HUGE portion but very tasty with the dipping vinegar). Very quick service too, last time I was there I only had half an hour and they obliged by serving my food very promptly. Love this place and will definitely be back!
