“Get On-Board!”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

I had food from shanghai express a few days ago. The place seems to get very busy in the evenings. I'd recommend making a reservation if you're not eating early (the place opens at 6pm). I had the pad Thai which was tasty and plentiful. My girlfriend had the sweet and sour chicken which was delicious, I'd really recommend it and my mum had the Goan chicken curry which was only ok in my opinion. I'd like to return to try their tapas menu. A nice place to eat in kinsale.

“Where the locals eat!”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

If you need a break from seafood chowder, this is the place to go! Service is quick and efficient and the food is very good. Portions are tapas style so you can sample a lot - the lamb rendang is divine, as are the potstickers.

“Delicious and Informal”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

3 of us shared 7 tapas and this left no room for anything else! The food is delicious - wasabi beef and the lasagne are a must. The restaurant is small and although they do not do reservations, try and get seating downstairs as there is a better atmosphere there.

“Delicious food!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

After reading some good reviews on this restaurant we decided to give it a try and we were not disappointed. They have a great range of Asian fusion dishes that made it difficult for us to make decision. The dishes we chose were excellent and were very tasty and different from other Asian style restaurants we had been to. Bookings are recommended.
