Token Ratings and Reviews
I booked a table for 10 people at 7pm on a Friday. My booking didn’t indicate that there is a limit on time set... but we were told to vacate the table at 9pm as there was apparently another booking after. As some guests only arrived by 9pm, we all ended up standing around with our drinks until we found a table about 1 hour later. When paying the bill, on top of the service charge which I knew was coming there were to additional tax amounts charged on us - a tax of 9% and a tax of 23%, which in total made the process of splitting the bill really awkward. Given all that won’t be coming there for a birthday event again. Otherwise the usual good craig with arcade machines and food was nice.
Amazing food in retro gaming environment...perfectly sized portions and mouth watering food...the gaming was fun and atmosphere great...service was excellent - servers freidnyl helpful and very accommodating...would definitely recommend and I'll be back for the food.. It's just amazing 💖💖💖😍😍
Food was great, atmosphere, music and games were fantastic. It was a Saturday night, way too busy for the amount of staff available, therefore, it was a bit annoying having to wait so long for drinks and food. Despite that, the staff were friendly and helpful - doing the best they could, considering the stress. It was my birthday and I had a fun night with friends.
We had a great night in Token! I booked a table for my girlfriends birthday, she love it and all her friends loved it. The food is amazing, the beers are great and the games are awesome. Great and pleasant service from the staff too, so a big thank you to them!
I booked a table at TOKEN for a birthday get-together and had such a great time.
The food was delish. The Bacon jam and Parmesan fries were a highlight.
The archade games were deadly, so many classics. Metal slug and street fighter kept me highly entertained before and after food.
TOKEN is pretty great. You should check it out.
This is such a great venue. I thought the food would only be ok and it might be all about the retro arcade games but I was so wrong!! All 13 of us loved the food so much and everyone said they would be back again to try different dishes. It was also great to have so many veggie/vegan choices on the menu. The beers and cocktails were also yum!! The staff were great...really friendly, helpful & fun. Great place for a birthday, date or any random fun night out!
The place was crowded and it was difficult to walk around. But it was a Saturday night and the only bar in town with this proposal, so I guess I should have expected that.
Anyway we were able to have fun, the food was pretty good, our table was in the bar area, downstairs, so it wasn't noise.
I loved the place, it's worth it even if you're not a huge fan of arcade.
Great Fun, Great Food, Great Atmosphere, Great Value, Great Games, Great Laugh.
It was so good I considered giving a bad review in the hope it would keep new custom away but couldn't bring myself to doing it. Good and try it and if you love retro games you will be in heaven.
Really nice enviroment, cool arcade vibe.
Food is tasty, however it's very hard to find something on the menu paleo / keto friendly. The staff doesn't seem to make effort to help out with that.
Didn't feel I was getting the value for the price. However the food is tasty.
Very important, it doesn't mention anywhere that the kitchen closes at 22:00. However you can book a table all the way to the closing time...
Had a really fun birthday playing all the games. Food was good but felt it was over priced for some of the items (the cost of the chips was commented on several times). Also, all our burgers were dry and over cooked.
Please sort out the pinball area as it's too crowded with the curtains pulled over. I love pinball but couldn't play most of the night because there was nowhere to wait for a machine.
Also, the booths are nice but as you can't book/fit more than 8 and we turned into 11, it made things crowded and uncomfortable for a bit. We would have ordered dessert and done the wing challenge if we had more space.
Overall a nice experience and I always recommend the place to friends. Will be back soon.
I heard great things before going to Token.. they were all true! What a fabulous place, there was a group of 8 of us. We booked a table in advance (recommend) as it was busy and had beers and food while playing retro games! Who could ask for more! Great bit of fun on a Saturday afternoon!
Second time to Token - once for my birthday and another for Dublin Comic Con. Found the staff at both times very friendly and accommodating.
Second visit had some good improvements,as the Nintendo Menus were a good idea, and I liked the new Token coins for the machines.
I thought the 50 cent coins were also a good idea, but I get why they were replaced with the Token 'tokens' - also, random observation, the little baggies seemed to be better quality printed and not fluffy on the inside like the first time.
Also, my vegetarian friend that came with me was very happy with the menu choices, and the churros were taken off our bill when they took a while (perhaps we were after a few, but I didn't even think we were waiting that long!) so, the staff are very attentive and kind.
My only criticism is perhaps - for the sake of the staff, I was called by one member about switching my booking time on the phone, and I honestly couldn't hear them from the background noise, and I know the place can be really loud.
I know it's an obvious suggestion, but is there a quiet room available for the staff to call their customers when they need to?
I look forward to visiting Token again, and I've recommended it to friends when we hit Dublin.
I was looking forward to go to Token for the first time to meet with my friends and one of them was also celebrating his birthday.
We arrived around 7pm and had tables reserved so that was good. Some of us ordered food straightaway and it didn't take too long but people that arrived a bit later had to wait a VERY long time to order their food (waitresses looked overwhelmed) and also waited again over half an hour to get served a hot dog for example!
Also, when we left our tables and decided to buy tokens to start playing we were told we had to wait half an hour to be able to buy tokens! We waited half an hour and even after that there were NO tokens available (they said it could take at least another 10 mins). We left the place extremely disappointed as the whole purpose was to go there to enjoy the food (took ages to order and receive it, reason why we were not able to start playing earlier) and also to play some games and we didn't play even once! I truly hope the service gets better as the place looks nice, but we won't be going back and will not recommend it.
