We visited on the 10th of December. We tried the online drink orders and used the codes on our tables, I posted my link and people sent me drinks and the money was taking out of there account and I never received any drinks not one. I got multiple texts from people telling me they bought me drinks I got zero. I told multiple members of staff and none of them did any thing they just walked away and never came back to help me or explain what happened, I was very disappointed as it was my first time at blind tiger

Booked a table with my friend for the Speed Quiz. It was great fun with a competitive atmosphere and a fantastic quiz master.
I ordered the Camile Thai crispy chicken and a Tiki cocktail which were both yummy! I liked seeing that they have plenty of vegetarian & vegan options :)

My fiend and I were refused entry due to wearing track bottoms, we came back to our house, got changed and when we were finally let in after an ordeal with IDs, I was served some of the worst food I have ever tasted, we stayed for about 20/30 mins and my fiend and I who arrived later were not asked if we wanted a drink or anything, very poor customer service and even worse food 2/10

Hi Buck, apologies on being asked to change from tracksuit bottoms etc for entry however we have always had a dress code, I will look into your complaint on the food, in the evening we are a thai restaurant and only serve Thai food from Camile Thai Kitchen upstairs, I will look into this with Management on duty that night.

Even though we had to wait to be seated even though we had booked, I didn’t mind. Then to be told we had to leave at 8:30, 45 mins into our booking. We had to wait over 15 minutes for our drinks. Not once did we receive an apology for the inconvenience caused. As a social media influencer and food blogger I feel I need to express my concerns regarding how unwelcome you made us feel. I could not recommend the blind tiger to anyone. After all this we received an incorrect bill and after it was amended we received to apology. As of now I could not recommend this restaurant to my family and freinds. I hope to revisit The Blind Tiger in the future to give you a second chance but as of now I am deeply disappointed.

Went to the blind tiger for a date night Wednesday and the staff couldn't have been any better! So attentive never an empty drink infront of us, constantly making sure we were ok. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere from the quiz night which was happening next door to us in the garavogue was unbelievable. Have to say we enjoyed ourselves very much and the cocktails were to die for we will definitely be back in this week to try their new cocktail of the week as I tried last week's and am intrigued to see what it is this week! Would recommend this beautiful establishment to anyone and everyone. Great place to go for date nights the staff couldn't have made our night any better. So lucky to get a booking here at such late notice, in future I'll be booking ahead of time as the place does be booked out due to such high demand it's great to see businesses helping eachother and to see the support this beautiful place is getting. A huge thank you to all and our wonderful waitress Jessica who was very attentive and on the ball all night from what we were watching!

Fantastic service, outstanding food and the atmosphere was amazing and upbeat. Went here Wednesday for the quiz night and what a great idea it is!!! Quiz nights every Wednesday in the garavogue highly recommend it's great to do with a bunch of friends and the laughs that were had was very much needed. The staff were very friendly and they are now doing cocktails of the week, asked for something special to celebrate a friends birthday and once again the staff and management delivered!!

really enjoyed the food - lovely enthusiastic staff, but bringing starters and mains together is a silly idea, so we didnt bother with starters. also, the fact the the food appears to come from next door via the outside street, left my food slightly cold, didnt ask the others. 2 mains came along with one rice, then the other two mains came, and after about 5mins the other 3 rice came. it would be better to serve all together. will definitely be back and have already recommended it.

Not that impressed to be honest and I hate leaving negative reviews. My food was cold and my daughter order tofu but her meal came out with what looked like fatty pork in it. It turned out to be fake chicken (which is made of gluten) she couldn't eat it.
We got a refund for that part of the meal, the waitress checked with the kitchen and they had run out of tofu. Please tell customers that instead of substituting it. If someone was gluten intolerant there would have been issues.
I was really looking forward to trying Camille Thai but I wouldn't go back.

We booked our table online. Arrived and got seated. We then ordered drinks and were handed food menu. The girl took our order for food. We waited a long time and still no drinks, we asked someone and then drinks were given. We waited a long time and then asked about foot, we were told the gas was gone in the kitchen that we may have seen them walking in with gas. Two hours later and still no food. The girl who took our order said she remembered taking it and she would get the manager to talk to us. He came out and apologized. He admitted they had lost our order. At this stage it's 9pm. Our table was booked for 7.30. so we were offered a platter for two which was not very filling when we came out for a meal.

The location is one of the best spots in Sligo beside the river. My girlfriend and I sat outside and were seen to promptly with menus and ask what beverages we would like. Unfortunately that day they were out of both crunchies and oreos for their milkshakes, but our waitress was so nice, I really regret not getting her name. I have worked in the industry and I know how stressful and busy it can get, but the customer service we received was definitely the highlight of our lunch date.
