Beautiful small spaces with a warm friendly atmosphere. The food is awesome and demands attention. Every bite is like "Whhooaa"!
First visit and exceeded expectations. Food was excellent. Will return.
The tables were definitely not following Covid social distancing guidelines. The party at the table beside us kept moving onto our table when one person would need to use the bathroom, which was very concerning. Previous patrons overstayed their time, and we were seated late but told we would still need to leave on time. Waited 45 minutes for the food to be served, and the mains were brought first then the starters?! But the quality of the food & drinks were very good, would like to return under normal non-Covid times.
We arrived for a 21:45 booking and were immediately told that they need the table back at half 11 and that if we were to order starters and main courses that they would have to bring out all the food at the same time.
Our table sat adjacent to a table for 12-15 people with no social distancing whatever. They were all completely drunk and shouting at each other competing for attention, the staff did nothing to calm them down.
Myself and my missus were on our first night out after having a baby and our night was completely ruined by this. Will never go near the place again and will advise anyone who will listen to me to do the same
Food was nice but pricey for what it is. Service isn't great, left empty plates on table for ages. Cocktails were llvely
Amazing service and delicious food
Booked in to celebrate friend's 18th birthday & was so happy I did in Maneki. The food was great & our waitress was amazing! We all enjoyed our time there and will defintelty return again :)
Lovely staff, great food and drinks. Very safe and a really lovely atmosphere.
This was our first meal out after lockdown and it was amazing! Great value, incredible food and lovely staff
Great meal and good service. Drinks service was a bit slow but that seemed to be because they were managing a busy December weekend while keeping Covid precautions in place.
Lovely atmosphere and ambience. The staff was lovely and the food was very nice. They have a big variety of dishes and drinks (loved the sake cocktails ). They also have a lot of vegan/vegetarian options . Very good experience overall
Food is great, only complaint would be that we were missing one item and even though we’d enquired about it multiple times we didn’t receive it until we’d finished the rest of our meal. We went the Sunday after opening week so seemed as if everyone was just exhausted from the previous two nights which is more than understandable!
Host wasn’t wearing a mask which we did find a bit worrying, all wait staff were and tables were reasonably spread out so that did make us feel more at ease!
We really enjoyed Maneki, the staff were excellent and helpful.
They were very accommodating while we were waiting to go in for Karaoke.
Was really disappointed to find the front of house staff not wearing masks when we arrived. Was equally uncomfortable with how 11 people were put into a relatively small room, with 1 serving staff - it was extraordinarily uncomfortable in Covid times.
The food was good (Duck was excellent), though the ramen was quite bland.
Nice food, but due to Covid 19 restrictions staff appeared stressed and service was not great.
Food was average.. we got sushi but the seaweed was very chewy. I would say the sushi is better quality and same price (if not cheaper) in other sushi restaurants in dublin.
ambience wasnt great.. very drafty .. I thought this was going to be a fancy place comparable to other dawson street locations
The place is so nice and the food as well! I really love the ambiance. The Karaoke room is large and extremely for good for gatherings.
We had such a lovely evening in Maneki. The food was absolutely delicious, there was such a range it was hard to pick! We were thrilled with the dishes we received, the tempura prawns were particularly good, I would go back for them alone! The staff were friendly and the decor was cozy while remaining trendy. I can’t wait to go back!
Great service. Lovely food
Beautiful place, staff are lovey and food is delicious and well priced. Would recommend to anybody I know.
Really wonderful food and service! Very enjoyable meal!
Great restaurant i highly recommend it. I had a great time
Had a lovely evening here with only Outdoor Dining allowed. The service was great and so was the food!
The best sushi ever ! Great service and price thanks guys
great service!! didnt know the place place exist until i hit open table :)
I'm sure they're usually a nice experience but were not equipped for outdoor seating as per covid restrictions
Food was lovely but quite expensive. Wished there were more cocktails as they were out of the ingredients for all but one but overall pretty good experience.
Delicious sushi, wonderful staff. A great evening in Maneki, we will definitely be back.
The customer service was amazing they were friendly and helpful. The food was delicious.
Amazing experience, great service, especially by Dany, the guy who was serving us!
Excellent food and sake. Nice atmosphere. Slightly expensive.
Very Nice food But overpriced, ok service, nothing outstanding or extra from the staff.
Absolutely stunning restaurant, and all Covid-19 protocols followed perfectly. I felt safe and clean, and even when 3 other sets of guests arrived after us, our space was all maintained from one another.
Food was absolutely stunning - the presentation as well as the taste. Prices were unfortunately on par with Dublin pricing. which is much, much to high for sushi. It was a beautiful dinner out though and a lovely treat. The sake cocktails are very special, and prices on these were fine, again for Dublin city centre.
I will absolutely be back, and highly, highly recommend Maneki.
Really tasty sushi, nice service (staff not wearing masks though) The dining spaces are intimate & nicely decorated
The place is really nice and we felt confortable.
It has a really nice environment that invite you to talk while enjoying a nice food.
The food was excellent, so tasty. Service was very fast and waitress and waiter very friendly. As it was my birthday they gave me a complimentary desert. Definitely recommend
Food was absolutely gorgeous and the service was friendly and super quick! Even though it's on a busy street once you're inside you are transported to a different world, cannot wait to go back!
I had a self care day and went out to have some lunch by myself. I was at the restaurant at opening lunch hour and I had the whole upper restaurant floor to myself. The food came out pretty quick and the waitress was nice and prompt. I had the matcha latte, beef yakisoba and ebi tempura. It was good overall, but the yakisoba was not very authentic.
Des Plats délicieux.
Une ambiance classe, chaleureuse et Otaku. Nous avons adoré.
Un grand merci également pour le karaoké
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.
