Ordered nearly everything on the menu and it was all delicious
Phenomenal food, 100% worth the hype! The flavours, textures all delicious
great food, staff lovely but service a bit slow, very cold in the outside space and can get forgotten about so try to book indoors, looks much more fun
Delicious tapas size Asian food, fresh and very tasty.
Excellent choice of food and cocktails. Veggie/vegan options were all very tasty and the Bao’s were gorgeous. Will definitely be back here again.
Great food! Really fun atmosphere - will definitely return! Our waitress was superb!
The spicy crayfish dumpling was thr standout for me, amazing. All our dishes came out quickly after ordering. Everything we had was delicious. I'll be back for sure
Food and staff are superb. Our ‘table’ was right in front of the welcome desk, almost blocking the entrance to the restaurant. Every time the door was (frequently) opened, everything blew off our table, face masks, menus, napkins. Consistent bad draft - all 3 guests wore long coats for the duration. Manager refused to move our party despite there being 5 separate empty tables becoming available for the duration of our stay - albeit for bookings to arrive later. Each of those tables remained empty while we sat at under the door annoyed, which really added insult to injury.
I brought this to the attention of management & they repeatedly agreed it was terrible and they are constantly getting complaints about it - yet do nothing to remedy the problem.
I think that table is a fire hazard first & foremost, second to that, it’s the best table to ensure an extremely unpleasant dining experience which guarantees we will never return or recommend.
Dear Diner, We apologise for the experience, The table in question Table 9 was not a fire hazard, but has been removed. Please understand the constant changes restaurants are having to deal with during these very difficult and ever-changing times. We are doing our utmost! building and rearranging almost daily trying to find the right fit. I believe you were given free drinks and as much attention as possible. Sorry to hear your intentions of not visiting again,however,if you do please inform us
One of the best restaurants I've been to in a long time. Food was brilliant, lovely atmosphere, and the staff were exceptionally nice.
Overall very nice experience. Would go again
The food is always delicious and service is quick.
Fantastic all round- nothing I would change
The food was amazing and the service was great. Would highly recommend dining here. The only thing that was not great was the desserts but the rest was fab.
Food was perfect
Few issues which I’ve communicated directly /privately
Food was very good. Want to go back and try more. Restaurant is noisy. Definitely one to try at least.
This place is a real treasure, the food is highly creative and fun. There is a real buzz and everyone including the staff really wants to be there. They are highly attentive and have an enthusiasm which is infectious. I had the cheeseburger jiaozi which is like a kitsch take on a Big Mac, if it was done beautifully with an Asian twist. We also enjoyed crayfish, okra, and some delicious beers. Desserts are authentic and very generous. I also enjoyed an Old Fashioned with pandan. I love how Big fan doesnt take itself too seriously, and that is worth its weight in gold.
Excellent meal, would highly recommend for a date night or friend get together
Everything was absolutely delicious, would highly recommend!
Third time visiting, never disappointed. Great atmosphere, even better food. Couldn't recommend more.
Very tasty food! Wide choice of dishes on the menu and perfect for sharing!
Food was fab with lots of Irish producers on the menu, will definitely be back!
I love the idea of various dishes for sharing and the choice of vegan options. Everything very tasty and as promised! Staff is helpful and nice. A bit pricey.
Really good food, lots of choice and unusual for Dublin. Good cocktails too!
Food was unbelievable. Didn't get the waitress name but she was working last night and was fab. The steak was 10/10 amazing
Incredibly well done food, with great veggie options as well and fab service. A lovely experience overall.
I feel bad for leaving a bad review as I never do, but really didn't enjoy our meal. The only good part was our server, I can't remember his name but he was mexican and very nice. The food was overpriced and the portion sizes were tiny (which would have been okay if we enjoyed the food), all in all really disappointing and we went here as it was recommended as one of the best places in Dublin for vegans and vegetarians. Wouldn't recommend at all. The beyond meat dumplings were nice but that's about it.
Food was so delicious. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back.
The food was so tasty worth a visit.
That was awesome! Heard loads and it hasnt disappointed. Food was amazing, took the "risk" of bringing my parents and young niece & nephew and everyone loved it. It was great fun trying everything together made better by the great service. The Coconut parfait was a great way to finish too! Will be back
First time to Big Fan and I’ll definitely be back. Lovely food, nice staff. Not a place for a plain eater but excellent if you love your sauces 👌🏻
A great menu! We tried loads and everything was delicious! The staff were great too, it was a very busy Saturday night and they were all very attentive. Couldn't recommend Big Fan enough!!
The team at bigfan can't do enough for you! So helpful and attentive. Food was delicious!
Food was excellent, though meal was a little pricey
Amazing food. Unfortunately the place is really really cold, even when eating inside it’s like outdoor dining which is not great end of October in Dublin…
The food here is amazing, make sure you try out the “she’s sweet”! Bao buns to die for and great service from the staff who explained everything and food arrives really quickly. Great atmosphere in the restaurant.
Great food and service
Quality food. Great staff. I'm a big fan. Min char.
Restaurant was very noisy with passing traffice and adjoing diners. It was also quite cold. Services was good and food was good. Print on menus quite small.
Thanks Alan, As soon as Gov regulations change we will be reinstating our shopfront this should sort out both the noise and temperature. Next week, fingers crossed!
Small portions for
The price . Timing of servicing food was slow . No flow
Hi Emilio, Just a quick note to say sorry if you had to wait for food on Sunday. We had an unexpected staff shortage due to illnesses and had to do our best. Normally we operate quite a speedy service. Unfortunately I can made no apologies for price as we work of a very fair margin, hope you understand and hope we see you again. BIGFAN
