    Service was great. However, food was terrible and interior is very run down. It was expensive for what we received.

    Tiny little restaurant. Really attentive but unobtrusive service. Very friendly. We had a lovely meal and we weren’t rushed out at the end. We were the last ones in the restaurant and yet there was never any prompt to leave. Highly recommended.

    We had a fantastic Christmas Eve lunch at the Chilly Club, we had originally booked for 6 people and at last minute changed to 10 people even though they were at capacity on Xmas eve they managed to squeeze us all in and made it a xmas eve lunch to remember. Many thanks and we’ll be back soon!! Food and service were fantastic as was the atmosphere!

    The worst place ever I have been in ireland. I would not recommend this restaurant at all. Very poor ambience. Poor quality food. The staff were rushing to clear the tables. Very very poor service. The toilets were horrible. No cleanliness. Cutlery was served only on request. The place was so congested. Will never ever come back to this place. I am surprised that such poor restaurants exist in one of the hotspots of Dublin.

    We really enjoyed our dinner at Chili Club. The food was so tasty, the service was excellent and the price point won’t be beaten in Dublin City centre! It was a little loud but considering it was the week before Christmas, that’s completely expected. Will definitely be back!

    We had a family meal in the Chilli club tonight but definitely won't be back.The lady who seemed to be running the restaurant was extremely abrupt & not in any way friendly or welcoming. We booked for 8pm weeks ago but when we rang this evening we were told 8.15 would be better.We arrived at 8.15 and were told to wait outside...that took approximately 10 minutes. There was no apology whatsoever. The man who was serving was a lot friendlier and was nice.The ambience was poor in the restaurant and there was a very long delay between the starter and main course.Four of us had Pad Thai and the plates were stone cold when they were finally served.Overall a very disappointing Christmas night out and I certainly would not choose to dine there again.

    I have never been disappointed dining at the Chilli Club. Had a meal there yesterday evening with three of my friends We all thought that the food was excellent and the service prompt. The Portuguese wine we had was also very good. Will be going back the first opportunity we get.

    Lovely homely feel to the Chili Club Restaurant. Food was lovely, especially the Chili Selection platters for starters. Staff were warm and although they were run off their feet due to shortage of staff. They kept us informed of any delays to our main course, as the chief was preparing for a very large group upstairs, but this didn't stop them from checking in with us regularly on if we needed drinks, crackers etc. I would recommend the restaurant as good value for money and quantity of food.

    Small, but doesn't feel it, tables are not jammed together. Very friendly waiter, who seemed to get my aversion to aniseed, and guided me to the correct dishes to avoid it. Delicious food. Good value for an early bird. Will be back.

    It was my first time here in the Chili Club. From the moment we walked in it felt so cosy and the smell of the food as you walk in. Although the place was very busy the service was brilliant. The waitress was so attentive at all times . I ordered a Thai green along with some family members with me and it was absolutely delicious. We all commented on how tasty it was. Book in advance to avoid disappointment. Will definitely be returning
