    Food was mediocre, I’ve had better at the food court in a mall. Rice was very greasy, dragon roll quite bland. Service was poor, never refilled water, had to wait ages after requesting bill and then again for the card machine. They automatically adds 12.5% gratuity to the bill (party of 2) which probably explains why the service was so bad, they were receiving a tip regardless of what service they provide. Space was cramped as well - would not recommend.

    Miso soup was very diluted and flavourless. Everything else wasn’t bad and wasn’t great. Ordinary sake range. Service okay. Overall fair.

    Tables are so close to each other!!! If you go when there’s karaoke on then it’s really loud and ruins the ambiance to be honest, makes it a little tacky.

    We ordered Tonkotsu ramen, Unagi rice bowl, Sashimi Plater and Tempura set for the main course. For dessert we ordered Japanese ice cream mochi with 2 flavor. The ramen was generous with filling, taste a bit spicy which we really like and the Unagi rice bowl and sashimi plater are really fresh as well. The staff also really friendly and quick to response for any of my order. I would really recommend this place to a Japanese food lover.

    Very nice meal here, would love if they did the Teppan chef and grill experience, that's fun. Still, the food was lovely, wine good, price I suppose expected in Dublin City centre, that's the reality. Staff excellent and friendly. I told them not to charge the 12½ % service charge ( optional ) but tipped them more just the same because I was happy with them. Overall, yes, I would return.

    We’ve been to Maneki before and had no issues, but this time in particular it was a bit off - the food was unreal as per usual, but the staff were honestly a little bit rude! It felt like they were rushing us each time they approached the table, even before we had gotten any food. The first waiter approached us less than 2 minutes after being seated and asked us to order food, and told us that it’s easier if we order it sooner. Will definitely be back regardless as the food is always great, but really wasn’t pleased with the service this time unfortunately

    ManekiResponded on 12 January 2023Thank you for coming to our restaurant and taking your time to leave us a review. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by our staff.

    We over ordered by a very large margin. The waitress could have been more helpful in telling us that. Service charge of 12.5% automatically added to the bill (for 2 people) is very cheeky. Sashimi was just large lumps of raw fish no finess in the cut

    ManekiResponded on 7 December 2022Thank you for coming to our restaurant and taking your time to leave us a review and rating. Every person is different, what is a large amount for you, for others may be the perfect amount.

    Lovely food and absolutely shocking service. You can get similar food and better service for less in Ramen Bar a short walk away. We were reminded at least 4 times that our table was needed back at 8pm. No issue with that in principal but we arrived on time and were rushed constantly. One of the chairs was broken, as in falling apart, and we made the mistake of pointing this out. The staff we extremely rude. We got the receipt and card machine dumped on the table beside us at 25 minutes to 8, and were never asked if we wanted dessert, tea or coffee. They include a 12.5% service charge for this charming carryon which is honestly a joke - will never be back.

    ManekiResponded on 4 December 2022Thank you for coming to our restaurant and for leaving us a review. Our restaurant is usually very busy, especially on weekends. On the confirmation email we kindly ask customers to arrive 10 minutes earlier for their check in, as we have other group bookings, and we need the tables available for a certain time. Also, we mention on our terms and conditions that due to high demand, tables are available for a maximum of 2 hours only, and it can affect your karaoke booking as well. All the best.

    Staff are amazing. Friendly courteous and helpful. The table and room were quiet and ambient. Lovely decor. Our starters were lovely. Mains were good but overpriced I’m sorry to say. I had fried rice with prawn chicken and pork. It looked like one prawn cut into 4 pieces, saw no chicken and some pork and it was 22 euro.
