    Usually love Ukiyo. But the food has slipped a bit, sushi potions are smaller and the Korean fried chicken. May have been an off day, still a great spot

    Had dinner on Saturday, the food was lovely and staff were great it was very reasonable and I would definitely go back. I loved the restaurant but only thing I didn’t like was the tables are way too close, that makes it’s hard to talk.

    Food was incredible. Service although very nice, was slow and because we were in the last dinner slot, we did not get the chance to order dessert.

    Very disappointing sushi -- well below the standard of Dublin restaurants: fillings were thin, sauce was simple sriracha and the rice seemed old. The sharing plates are nice, kind of fusion between Japanese and Mexican food, but the flavours could use a little work. Overall would not be quite so disappointed were the prices not so high. They're charging for food that they are not delivering. For sushi I would recommend Maneki, Yammori Izakaya, Sushida

    The food was amazing, we got a few dishes to share on the table between two people. We got 4 different dishes and they were each absolutely beautiful. Everything was made beautifully, I could not fault the food. The service is very slow, waiters don’t come to your table unless you flag them down. We weren’t aware of this and so we’re waiting about 15 minutes to place our orders. The food came quite swiftly along with drinks but again we had to wait and ask multiple waiters for the bill. Even after getting the bill we were another while waiting for them to bring the card machine. Overall a brilliant experience would be perfect for so many different occasions

    We had the karaoke experience, overall the experience was good, the room is lovely, and the staff are nice and professional, however I have a few observations. In regards to the food, it was delicious, but it was very little food, considering the amount €500 paid, we did not have food worth €500 on that table, also when we ordered drinks, we waited a really long time for them, and when we rang the button, still nobody came for a very long time. There was issues with the karaoke machine, and it kept not working, and again when we kept calling for the waiter to fix it, nobody was coming. Also they can really improve on the cocktails.

    The service was not good at all. It was really difficult to call a waitress to take our orders during the whole time. There was a mistake with one of the dishes and the dish came super late when the whole table already eaten apart of this person. While the waiters was taken the empty plates one of the drinks fell into the table and he said that he will make sure to bring another.... Never happened! The food was okay but was not gret, not much taste. The portions were a bit small compared with the value of them. At the end we requested the servirce charge to be removed for the total account as we were not happy with it.

    The food was sensational, everything we had was delicious. We ordered the katsu cauliflower, veg gyoza, edamame, pork bao, hake sliders & a truffle roll. It was all perfect and a great amount for 2 people. However, I have been here 3 times now and twice experienced really poor service. Our drink order wasn’t taken when we sat down, and then we were left for about 20 minutes before anyone came to take our order. It also seemed impossible to get anyones attention. After our food & drink order was taken, and our food arrived nobody came back to us until eventually after we had finished and wanted to leave we shouted someone over. We would have had more drinks if there was a chance to order some. The weird thing is that the 2 tables either side of us seemed to be served more frequently which made the experience a bit more irritating.

    Went for a Christmas night last night. Food came out freezing had to send it back. Service was poor, we only had one drink with our food as we couldn’t get any one near our table to serve us. Electricity also went twice just in this restaurant wasn’t a whole street problem. Also restaurant was so cold, it was so cold the staff doing the reservations had to put her coat on. We were very disappointed and won’t be returning.
