Lovely spot, gorgeous food and great value. Large selection on the set menu which was very good value. Friendly staff and good selection of wines and beer. After dinner we sat at the bar for a drink, lively atmosphere

Me and my friend just had a lunch here. The bar is really nice,fancy but just enough. The waitresses were really nice,smiley and helpful. About the meals, both of us had a tom yum soup which was kinda strange, it was more of a gulash from eastern Europe than a thai soup,but it was nice nevertheless. The second courses were... More

Good food in a nice atmosphere and worth the trip up the stairs. First glance might not seem inviting from the downstairs entrance but it is obviously popular with the locals - keeps quite busy it seems.

Food was alright. But the service was lacking. The waiters never gave us water till we asked for it. They were in a hurry to take the dishes at 10 even though we were still eating. The food was expensive. I've eaten Asian food much better than this and for far less money

We ordered one starter, a Prawn noodle dish, a set lunch and two tea which were just average, nothing to write home about but we finished most of it..26 euros total,served by our waiter who seemed to be...

Recently ate here on the early bird menu. Portion sizes were decent and filling and didn't leave you feeling uncomfortably full. Meals were good quality unlike some asian restaurants. Found there was a good selection on the menu. Staff are friendly and service was excellent. Food arrived quick and hot. We had the early bird menu which wasn't restrictive and... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant before going to the Omniplex cinema next door. The decor was nice, service was good. The food arrived promptly and was tasty but the portions were tiny. Our starters cost €7.50 and were not worth the money. Would have gotten more bang for our buck downstairs in Eddie Rockets American Diner! Won't be... More

We ate in Zao yesterday evening and would not dream of returning ever again. One fish dish covered in some kind of overpowering sauce and a chicken dish which cost €16 was tiny in portion size. It is also ridiculous that rice is not included in the meal. There was hardly any other customers which does'nt surprise me as I... More

Ate here recently and was very happy with it. Food was lovely, service was excellent and there was a good choice on the menu. It was good value- 2 course for €17. It's a nice little place, I would go back
