Soul food
Soul food via Seoul​

Fried chicken and beer. A match made in heaven, right? Koreans love the combo so damn much they’ve dedicated a whole word to it. Pretty much a national pastime, Chimac comes from “chi”, short for “chikin” plus “mac” from "maekju", Korean for beer.

Inspired by this fried chicken obsession, we're proud to bring a taste of Seoul to the heart of Dublin. Think crispy free-range chicken that’s irresistibly good and sauce so delicious you’ll question all life decisions so far.

    The food is lovely, the staff are friendly and pleasant. Service is prompt, atmosphere in my opinion lacking something without being too (Kim)cheesy they could lean on the Korean factor and decorate accordingly to enhance the experience. That said will be going back definitely.

    Great place to go for something different. Food was fantastic overall. The batter on the Cauli wings could have been less (felt there was more batter than cauliflower). Service was great and not too over the top and staff very pleasant and helpful. I feel that the decor needs working on, it just feels very bland and not comfortable for diners. They also need to look at getting some Asian beers on draught instead of just cans to offer better authentic experience and value for money as a small 330ml can is the same price as a pint on draught.

    AMAZING FOOD!! So good. And the service was excellent, second to none, very helpful in explaining the food types and just in general. Very casual place, kind of a take out feel but the food was so much better than a take out. Highly recommended!! .

    Got in and was sat by the window, I have a bad back so I asked for the lower chairs and was told that they were all booked out (even though I also booked. And my table was for 3 people and there was two lower tables available that could seat two) I was physically very uncomfortable for the duration of this dining experience. Usually I get takeaway but wanted to treat myself to an outing. The burger was good. Flavors are amazing as always but burger was kinda cold. - maybe it was left sitting on counter or pre made? As the bun was a bit soggy. Chips were over cooked and a lot of oily ones. Didn’t get dessert as I wasn’t able to stay for too long. Service is good. Main waitress seemed a bit stressed but she was grand & considering how busy it was too! Overall 6 & a half out of 10.
