I decided to visit my usual eatery at The Orchid, Malahide for the Early Bird, with my wife and children which was previously advertised at €20.00 per person for a two course meal, the last time I visited in November 2016. However, this time I was served with the 'Christmas Menu' by a rather dour waiter, who appeared to be... More

Took a business client to this restaurant recently and had a great night . The service is good and the staff are friendly. The food is well presented and of good quality . Wines are excellent and reasonably priced. On the first floor opposite Gibneys famous pub.

On the plus side: Have been there twice before last Saturday, and on all occasions loved the food. Top notch Chinese. A step above what you would expect in a local takeaway. Negative: terrible wait time. Had booked several days in advance so although when we arrived there we were shown straight to our table, it took one hour and... More

I visited this place last night about 7pm , I had to say I was very disappointed. The waitress was so rude and made me feel very uncomfortable, she was not pleasant whatsoever, she also dropped food, maybe she was just having a bad day but it really put me off eating here. As for the food well that wasn't... More

This is a typical Chinese eatery with an extensive menu with all the usual dishes. What makes the place stand out is the good quality of food and the attentive and friendly staff. Family members of ours eat here a few times a year, simply because they love it and its reliable, and brought us along on this occasion.

I've dined at this restaurant on a number of occasions over the years, and have always had a consistently good experience there. Good food and discreet service from the waiters. Early bird menu good value for money. Recommended.
