“Not great.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

I don't drink and resent the fact they throw out muck to you at 2 in the morning presuming everyone is drunk and won't know better. Got the crispy chicken with no sauce the last day. Horrible. Very little if no chicken in it at all, just pure salty batter as far as I could tell. You wouldn't know any different with sauce on it but I was very let down and usually am because it's not like it's very cheap either.

“worst food in 21 years”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

Never actually had something as gross as this. Only food available at 4 30 pm but next time I'd rather starve than be sick in the middle of the street after eating sewer rat (that's what you get in this hole trying to pass off as a restaurant?!!!!!!!!!) . Please do yourself a favour and starve (or die) rather than trying your luck (and your stomach) and eat in this appalling disgusting hole. Avoid at all costs. Worst dining experience in 21 years. I'm 21.
Thanks

“Cheap and cheerful!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

Before going into any of the Charlie's around Dublin, be aware that it's not mind-blowingly fabulous chinese food. That said, their 3-in-1 (half chips, half fried rice with curry sauce) is actually very tasty and very cheap at about €5. A lot of their other dishes are pretty good too. Just don't expect award-winning cuisine, and you shouldn't be too disappointed
