Fun, good value, tasty food, overall had a great time! Some relatively unfortunate service threatened to put a dampener on an otherwise great night, but there was also some outstanding service it has to be said.

What a gem this place is.....can't wait to go again.
They had a good drinks selection and the food was excellent, with great veggie options - especially the vegan chilli fries. Games were loads of fun too, good selection and not much queuing even though the place was busy.
Highly recommended!

Had a lovely night, only downside would be the popularity of some of the games (never got to play Mario Kart!) and that nearly half of the pinball machines appeared to be out of order.

When we arrived we were told we would have to wait 20-25 mins for our table (even though we had a booking) but fair enough we thought, we'd get a pint and play some games, which was great fun. In reality we had an hour wait before we got a table, and we had to sit in the pinball room which isn't really the nicest place to eat - its dark, very loud and cramped. After being seated at the table we had a further 45min to an hour wait for our food to come. When it did, one persons food came out cold - we were actually there to celebrate this persons birthday so it took away from it a bit. I found the food to be excessively salty, no need for that at all! I couldn't finish my food because of it. Overall we really regretted not getting food elsewhere before we arrived as we lost time waiting when we could have been upstairs in the arcade. I know it's early days so we will most likely visit again in future once everything has been smoothed out but we would be reluctant to eat here again. Other than that, the atmosphere is nice, the games are great fun and we found the staff to be nice and apologetic when things went pear shaped. I really wish the best to everyone involved, its a fantastic addition to Dublin and it can only get better!

The two outstanding things about this venue is the vegan food and the pinball/arcade game cabinets.

When we arrived we were seated and presented with a menu. I chose the vegan hot-dogs and fries, my friend had the tacos and fries. The first disappointment was when all the food was delivered my hot-dogs were nowhere to be seen, when I inquired with the waitress she said "I only deliver what the kitchen gives me", taking no responsibility for the problem and just running off which I found distasteful.

Luckily after a while the greeter who lead us in at the beginning inquired how things were going and was able solve my hot-dog issue with me. Once they had arrived the hot-dogs were very nice, albeit small portions for the price.

Food out of the way we got down to enjoying the arcade machines and there was a great selection. Sunset riders was my personal highlight but I had great fun competing with my friend for high scores in donkey kong and ghosts and goblins. I would say that it was overly busy and there was nowhere to chill out between games so it was a case of trying out the games we wanted to and then clearing out.

All in all, it was a great novelty evening and a welcome chance to play some arcade classics. This place is not about the food or beer and that's fine with me.

Burgers and tacos were ok but desserts fabulous. Great atmosphere and great service. Arcade games and pinball are a lot of fun. We will most definitely be back.

Such a great selection of vegan options which is so refreshing and great beer selection too, although one we had picked out wasn't in stock. A similar option was recommended and it was delicious. Only (small) complaint is that the vegan hotdog had more or less the same texture as the bread bun.. would have been nice to get some different textures there but the jalapeños helped!

Great selection of arcade machines and pinball; decent selection of beers but perhaps a bit overpriced. Didn't try any food during my first visit there (but had to give it a rating above, so I only gave 2*, but you can disregard that)

It's a little cramped inside, but I suppose that's a testament to how busy / popular it is. Not a lot of seating, but it's not as much of a necessity with people playing the arcade machines.

Incredibly easy to find from Smithfield Luas stop, which I can imagine would be a big help to those who aren't familiar with Dublin.

It's almost like someone plugged my brain into a dream simulator and then built my ideal bar. This place has everything! Amazing food, great beer selection, dozens of incredibly fun arcade and pinball machines. Everything was really good value and time flew by. The attention to detail is second to none and you'll really enjoy discovering all of the little easter eggs hidden around the place.

Overall my experience was good. Didn't like that you had to reserve a table before hand to make the booking but when you get there we were told you cant book tables so we had to wait till one became free. It would be nice to have a table reserved. Also it was very crowded, so much so that I didn't really get to play much of the games.

The place is unique. The food menu presents various choices and I was glad with my hot dog. Token is different than anywhere else in the city. Of course I went for the games and I was pleased with what I found, nothing like playing some classic arcades enjoying a pint. This will probably be my favorite place to go from now on!

Great experience. We visited on the 2nd day Token was open and there were no signs of teething problems. The food and drinks were excellent, and there was a very positive energy.

The food was amazing, however I think introducing some simpler/plainer dishes might be a good option too, food was quite rich so not sure if I could eat it every time. Also, maybe a vending machine option for when you just want a beer and a bag of crisps?
