Great food and service
Quality food. Great staff. I'm a big fan. Min char.
Restaurant was very noisy with passing traffice and adjoing diners. It was also quite cold. Services was good and food was good. Print on menus quite small.
Thanks Alan, As soon as Gov regulations change we will be reinstating our shopfront this should sort out both the noise and temperature. Next week, fingers crossed!
Small portions for
The price . Timing of servicing food was slow . No flow
Hi Emilio, Just a quick note to say sorry if you had to wait for food on Sunday. We had an unexpected staff shortage due to illnesses and had to do our best. Normally we operate quite a speedy service. Unfortunately I can made no apologies for price as we work of a very fair margin, hope you understand and hope we see you again. BIGFAN
Everything was great! Definitely try the wagu dumplings
The Baos were really nice, the Jiaozi and the Xiao chi were a bit hit and miss. Everything was nice but some dishes were lacking flavour. Overall a nice meal, but you need to know what to order.
Excellent food at a reasonable price point. Buzzy atmosphere and good selection of drinks. All in all, a must visit in Dublin.
Delicious and unique food, decent service. Would certainly recommend and will be back.
The food is always good there. Table can be too small for all the food. At one point the music was very loud but thankfully the staff quickly turned it down. Service is great.
Enjoyed the food and drink very much. It was cold in the restaurant. We moved table because of this. I would recommend getting a table near the kitchen to be away from the open front. The service was satisfactory overall, with a bit of hit & miss along the way. We thought it was a bit pricey but quite enjoyable.
The best Asian food I’ve had in years! Great party atmosphere!
Excellent food and pretty good value for money. The waitress guided us on how much to order for 3 people and it worked out great. The food was delicious and the ‘tapas’ style is always a hit!
From the moment we arrived, the staff could not have been more welcoming, friendly and super efficient. The food was incredible and the cocktails were really fun. Already booked to return next week with friends!!
Amazing food and great service. Will definitely be back
Great food! Service is a little bit chaotic but very fun atmosphere! Will definitely go again
Delicious food & impeccable service. Can’t wait to go back soon
So good! yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Such great food and lovely service from the team. Would definitely go back here!
Best meal in ages! Tried nearly everything on the menu.
Food was amazing. Honestly best Chinese (and tapas) in dublin. Phenomenal
An eating experience! Food was oh so tasty. Looking forward to going back.
Excellent food, friendly staff, and great place for a get-together with a group of friends.
Great dinner place in Dublin. I especially enjoyed cheeseburger rolls and scamorza wontons. Great cocktails and wine on tap. Definitely coming back again.
This was the most exciting food experience I have had in Dublin in years. The buzzing frenetic little restaurant just fizzes with character and one is immediately seduced by the delicious smells and hectic pace of the friendly staff rushing from table to table with their delicious fare.
Everywhere I looked people were swooning with delight over the taste sensations being delivered by the friendly efficient staff. The menu, initially very confusing was ably explained to us by our server and we decided to trust them to choose for us, and what an inspired decision that was. Dish after dish of scrumptious delights arrived to the table. Vegan, vegetarian, pork, beef, chicken, all tastes, diets and palates were catered for. It felt as though the food would never stop coming. Equally free flowing was the Sake recommended by the server and beer for the one of our four who preferred it.
By the end of the meal, after licking each plate dry like ravenous dogs we were astonished to find the entire bill, for four people including alcohol was an insanely low €35 a head!
I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. Do everything you can to secure a table at the earliest opportunity. This place is very soon going to be almost impossible to get a table at, as I expect it will soon be the hottest ticket in town. 5 Stars!
Lovely place and tasty food! 10/10.. I'll definitely be back again!
A really interesting menu that is brilliantly executed. It's hard to find a good modern Asian restaurant and this has to be one of the best in Dublin.
I didn't love where we were sitting as it was at the door in front of the welcome station and they told us they needed the table back in 1.5 hours about 4 times which absolutely I get but it made it a bit uncomfortable. Would still go back though.
The food was excellent, Big Fan is doing something really different and exciting with their menu. Staff were super helpful and explained each dish to us and the best way to order them. Prices were reasonable for Dublin too.
The food was pheromonal! Would highly recommend to anyone.
What a great find, after a recommendation to try out Big Fan we have been meaning to get here for a while. Well a new menu dropped and that was a good excuse to make a visit.
Super busy place with great buzz, not for people wanting a quiet meal but its a fun and happy place with loads of characters and some great sounds.
The food is excellent, there is LOADS of it, and LOADS of options, we definitely ordered way too much even though our amazing hostess went through the menu in great detail for us, but that was simply due to all the recommendations we had received and too much belief in our ability to eat it all (doggo had a great take away at the end lol).
Super delicious dishes that arrive at the table at random and keep you exclaiming how brilliant they are! Do go, eat loads, take your time and enjoy!
best asian food in dublin by far.
Amazing dining experience, friendly, confident, helpful staff with a great menu
We came to Big Fab due to all the previous sterling reviews, it did not disappoint. The spicy chicken and pork soup dumplings were particularly delicious and we left feeling extremely content. It’s a must go for anyone visiting Dublin.
Amazing food, great service, lovely clean dining area. Had a fab time!
We loved the mushrooms so much and the broth that came with, the honey chicken was also so crunchy and just the right amount of sweet. The wagyu and lobster bao we didn't like as the bun was hard and the flavours didn't mesh well together in our opinion. The vegan snowflake dumplings needed a lot more seasoning but were grand and the prawn toast was nice but not groundbreaking. We'll be back but will try different items on the menu and definitely the mushrooms!
Food was so delicious. Restaurant was very busy and service was still great
Great service from our guy…great food and choice. Couldn’t fault it really!
I really like it here, the food is amazing and all the staff are very nice. The only thing is that the service is quite slow, probably because they are always so busy.
Top notch food matched with amazing and knowledgeable staff! Can't wait to catch me back and try some more of the menu.
Food very tasty, staff polite and helpful. Was disappointed with number of xiao received for the price paid. €12 for 3 is steep but overall enjoyable experience.
Delicious food and wheelchair accessible
