The sushi was one of the best I've had in Dublin, and the service was memorably one of the worst. We were asked twice by separate waiting staff if we understand that the table we booked via OpenTable was only going to be available for 1.5 hours instead of 2 as per default booking, people around us were told a similar thing and got moved around from one table to another. While constantly looking at the clock, we eventually ended up staying for 2 hours anyway, since we had to wait for our dessert for over 20 minutes, as the restaurant forgot we had ordered it. They told us it was because they were very busy, but half of the tables were empty, so I am not so sure about that. Then again, I'd go back to try more dishes, just perhaps on a less busy day.

Maneki was good in terms of the quality and freshness of the sushi, however we think there were a few issues with service on the night as the table beside us had been waiting 45 mins for food and we got served before them despite arriving afterwards. This led them to get quite annoyed and complained quite loudly leading to a bad atmosphere in the restaurant. The tables are also too close together in too small a space and it feels really squashed.

Service was very poor. Had to ask 3 times for water and given it was lunch time our order for 3 ppl arrived in 3 stages rather than the same time. In saying that food was delicious so would give another try.

The room was freezing; we had to eat with our jackets on - I asked them to turn up the heat but there wad no change. The food was ok but came at different times and some had to be requested and we were told it went to a different table.
The not-optional service charge was very steep when the service was not good. IT ended up being very expensive for an uncomfortable experience. It was not clear on booking through Opentable that Karaoke was not included. It as very loud with people falling dangerously up and down the stairs.

Always fabulous service! The Maitre'd gave us a free bottle of prosecco upon arrival, and it was a lovely touch. I've now been here 4 times since it opened and i'm looking forward to my next visit!

My daughter had the beef teriyaki and I had teriyaki fish (seabass?). Both were delicious. The waiters were very attentive and food came out quite quickly. My one complaint would be that you have to go down one flight of stairs and up another one just to get into the restaurant. This was difficult as I had a knee injury.

Not much ambiance in the dining room. Food is great although everyone at the table agreed the price and portion of the edamame is unconscionable and we wouldn't order again. They are never more than 4e at other restaurants of a higher price point and the portion is also very very small.

We felt the Maire'd although very attentive, was almost too busy and we felt a little 'stress' vibe. Also I was looked at like a crazy person when I asked if they could take my jacket.

Beautiful food and will be back (have already returned).

I think these points needs need to be reviewed.

Thanks,
Aoife

Maybe my choice was not the best, the vegetable tempura was tasty but quite heavy to digest and I would not order it again. Portions are huge!

Sushi were delicious and delicately made. Gyozas were average. Ambience and dining experience was great. Venue location is good.

However, ramen tonkutsu was an utter disappointment, although after saying this, I have quite high expectations in ramen having eating this for years in different cities & countries!

What a Brilliant night.

We arrived to a warm welcome. We were offered a private room as there were eight of us which was great so we didn’t have to worry about noise / bothering other guests.

The food was gorgeous, so fresh, delicious and beautifully presented.

The staff were so helpful and friendly.

After our meal, we had booked a private karaoke booth. This was unreal. The room was fab, very modern with room for all eight of us comfortably. The selection of music was great too - something for everyone! We were given two mics which was great as well.

The price over all was affordable and we feel like we got great value for money.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience so thank you very much. We will definitely be back again!

Food was pretty good - next time I'll try the sushi, it looked incredible and I regretted not going for it. However it's well worth a visit just for the experience. Definitely a candidate for the most beautiful restaurant in Dublin.

This was a gem of a find in downtown Dublin. Everything could not have been more perfect. The staff were excellent. The food was out of this world...some of the best Sushi we have had. If you love Sushi, this is a place for you.
