Food was nice but quite expensive and portions are quite small for the price. Friendly service but unfortunately they kept forgetting about our orders so we ended up going home hungry and having to order a Chinese.

The only thing I would change if I could was that it was a little chilly outside. If they had heaters it would be fab. That said I'm going back again as soon as I get a chance it was so delicious and the staff were just amazing.

Food was really good. The service wasn’t amazing, waiters were forgetting some of our orders but they were very friendly and apologetic and it seemed like they were new so we didn’t mind.

It was I suppose, understandable that after reopening with only outdoor dining, things would be hectic. We were seated in a table just in a corner of a main street. Food got cold really fast and it just wasn't the best of ambience, awkward basically. But on well, we're back out there

Food was just not good and tasteless. Great fun to be outside after lockdown but there is a reason why this was the only place available for booking, the food.

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

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.

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!

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.

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

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!
