Sorry to say I was very disappointed as I have been before but it has been a few months... Spring roll starters tasteless as 6 mini ones / all pastry . Vegan stir fry also so tasteless and such bad value. My friend was very happy with their beef stir-fry. The waiter was also in a serious bad mood. :-( Both of us were happy to leave on that count!

I had to travel all the way to Dublin to finally find the perfect Larb Gai. Kudos to the chef for turning such a Thai standard into something so wonderful. The other food was delicious too, the service is nice and friendly, and the interior of the place is not overpowering you with cheap asia chic. I loved the dinner there.

Enjoyed a lively and very tasty dinner here with friends recently. My green Thai curry was delicious and my friends agreed that the massaman curry was equally tasty and even quite moreish. A great little gem just off the beaten track in Dublin’s city centre. Definitely will be back!

Food and service was really good. It is an old restaurant and could do with a facelift!!, in particular the bathrooms. I love thai food and the spicier the better, which it was. We had the winter menu for 2 for €60 euro, which is the early bird menu plus a bottle of house wine. Good food, good value

We ate here on 27 December, a table of 4. Food was excellent with a good choice. However, we felt that the service was definitely lacking. The guy serving us gave off a real sense that he didn’t want to be there. His manner, whilst not rude, was very perfunctory and sometimes bordering on abrupt. Conversations were had with absolutely no eye contact. We may have just have caught him on a bad day. Finally, we were seated upstairs. There was a plug in heater but it was still quite cold, so perhaps ask for a table downstairs if booking. We would go back for the food and in the hope that the rest of the experience would match up next time.

I am a faithful Chili Club fan and have been dining in this cosy, quirky little house venue for the past twenty years. The food is consistently good and the welcome always warm. I would always highly recommend it. The joy of it is that it's a well-kept secret among Dublin stalwarts as it's hidden up a little alley way off South Anne Street.

Booked table for 6.30, mains didn’t arrive until 7.50
One water glass had 2 major chips in it
Service took a long time. Starter arrrived about 20 minutes after ordering but mains were a long time after that.
Starters were also a very small portion and very expensive- €7.50 for 5 vegetable spring rolls.
One main ordered was yellow curry with tofu and vegetables but there was no tofu or potatoes when it came. Server apologised, took it away then returned and said there actually were potatoes and that tofu hadn’t been written on the order form as if this was a fault on our part. Server was really quite rude and short with us after this.
Surprised that boiled rice was an additional €2 charge as this was not clear on the menu. Overall, we were disappointed with our experience.

Overall great, the food was lovely and the ambience was pleasant. Nice cozy little restaurant.
The waitress was really friendly however even though it's a small place she was the only waitress and responsible for everything including setting and clearing the tables. We had to wait a long time for the food, items were missing on the table (knives, plates), one friend's dish was cold. The waitress took it back to have it re-heated and eventually we had to ask her to bring it back. They could do with an extra waitress, it would greatly improve the service.

Food was delicious. One of the better Thai restaurants in Dublin. Waitress was very attentive. Place is very small inside but once it fills up there’s a nice cosy atmosphere. Even the lemon sorbet dessert was perfect. No complaints. Will definitely be back.

The two mains we had were really lovely but the prawn cakes for our starter we both thought were awful! They were deep fried batter with very soggy jelly like texture, not at all what we expected.
