“Nice Surprise”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

Didn't anticipate that we get Asian food traveling to Ireland. But glad we did. It was recommended to us by our hosts at the Old Presbytery B&B. We ordered an array of the tapas from the Pork Belly to Lasagne to the Caesar and more. All the dishes were enjoyed and the wine was reasonably priced.

“Divine”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

This restaurant takes Asian fusion food to a completely different level. The tastes are incredibly clean and the food wholesome. The service was absolutely excellent and in the finest traditions of Irish catering. I would recommend eating a selection of tapas to completely overwhelm your taste buds. What a gem of a place. A true highlight of our holiday.

“A Find!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Kinsale is the last place you'd expect to find an Asian tapas restaurant, but what a find! We enjoyed all our choices, but the spiced braised pork belly and the Asian lasagne were historic. We are still reliving the flavours four days later. The house wine was pretty good also. You don't go to the Shanghai Express for its decor or furnishings; leave pretence at the door and simply enjoy the food and atmosphere. You won't be disappointed.
