Delighted to get a table at late notice in one of Dublin's favourite Thai restaurants. Food great ambience cos and great for chatting with your table. Lovely fish dishes which I especially liked and a good wine selection. Delighted that the Chilli Club continues to produce great food in a great location with excellent staff.

Starters were average
Mains were excellent
Service was disjointed with mains coming quite a time apart, from each other which I find unacceptable , particularly if only two of you. Better both late ! That said our server was very apologetic and attentive and made up for it. Would still recommend!

Nice Traditional Thai Food in the heart of Dublin. The food was excellent with the right amount of spice. They accommodated us to be able to make the theater which is right around the corner. The service was excellent and could not ask for more.

We had a lovely Thai meal here--everyone had a good time. My Boozy Duck was very tasty but spicy--they take no prisoners with the heat! We had a nice bottle of wine with the meal as well, plus excellent desserts (not traditional Thai desserts, I should add). We'll definitely be back.

Don't let the name put you off if you are not a Chilli lover. There are plenty of non spicy options. If you are elderly or have any mobility problems book a ground floor table as the stairs are very steep and daunting. The washroom facilities are adequate if a little cramped. There were three of us on the night. Two opted for sliced duck with hoisin sauce, cucumber,spring anion and pancakes. The duck although tasty was on the dry side and the sauce was from a bottle. The number of pancakes was miserly although more were produced on request without demur. Our gourmet diner opted for the Thai classic "satay chicken". The chicken which was grilled he declared to be flavoursome but the sauce though tasty lacked that intense groundnut flavour he expected. Mains were were stir fried garlic or ginger and veggies with optional chilli content coupled with chicken or beef. The chicken was well received but our gourmet found the beef chewy and would have preferred well trimmed sirloin rather than the cheaper round cut. All this was accompanied by decent rice and noodles which were charged separately which is a bit like serving fish and chips without the chips, a practice which has crept into tourist areas in recent rimes. We washed it all down with a passable Sav Blanc from an uninspiring wine list. Coffee and brandy was not possible as they do not have a spirit licence. Service was friendly but slow. The bill came to €120 for starters and mains including wine. Not too bad. You can have a pleasant meal here but be warned, you will need crampons, to get upstairs

We were there as a family, celebrating a graduation and wanted a venue that was samll and friendly but close to the buzz of town. We all love Thai food and I'd eaten there before and knew the food was authentic and really tasty. We all enjoyed our starters and main courses but tragically were too stuffed to eat dessert. We had a bottle of read and white with the meal and both were good. Our waiter was super and we were very impressed when he recommended we only get four, rather than five rices with our meals, and he was right.

Our only small complaint was that it was a bitterly cold night and though the room itself was cosy and warm, in order to go to the toilet, we had to go down the stairs, into a freezing cold porch before heading into the restaurant downstairs where the toilets are located.

Not great, had to knock to gain entry despite arriving for our 5pm table, waiter continued to mop floors & prep for evening ahead, no childrens menu/options, long piece of twine found in middle of spring roll & eyelash on plate. Good main courses, though very heavy on garlic for my personal taste. Pricey winelist, odd background music & uncomfortable atmosphere. Won't return

It's been a few years since we have been here due to our relocation abroad and we were really excited about returning during our recent holiday home. It certainly didn't disappoint and lived up to our memories. The super food - crisp fresh ingredients - combined with a great reasonably priced wine list and friendly service meant we had a really enjoyable night. Would totally recommend this reataurant for all Thai food lovers.

Lovely restaurant - more fine dining in look and feel than your usual gilt and colour-saturated Thai joint. Service was super-friendly and attentive. Food was decent but a bit 'meh', particularly for the prices charged.

Prices don't reflect quality of restaurant. Paper table cloths, wine list is lacking, and don't for the life of you order the prawn toast. I honestly have had so much better at a Chinese takeaway.

The night we went it was busy and seemed understaffed. We were in a corner table and felt ignored.

Decent thai food in a dressed up atmosphere . Recommended if you're not that hungry and want to impress someone, like on a first date. The food quality was similar to the Thai restaurant in our old neighborhood in Brooklyn... just double the price and half the portion size.

Went here after searching for best restaurants in Dublin. We travelled from Birmingham for my husbands 40th, his favourite food is Thai so decided to give this place a try. Well I'm glad we took the plunge.......we had the most amazing food, service was second to none, and I couldn't recommend this place to everyone enough. Thank you for making his birthday a memorable one Chilli club 😄
