Cafe Mao (Dublin) Reviews
Newest Review: ... Judging by the queues on weekend nights (Mao does not accept reservations), many people know this already. The decor is trendily minimalist and the staff are efficient and friendly. I would recommend the Chilli Squid (£5.75) as a starter. The squid was pleasantly chewy in a light, non-greasy batter accompanied by a chilli oil dip. My favourite main course at Cafe Mao is Nasi Goreng (£7.95) - an Indonesian fried rice dish with chicken satay, shrimps, fried egg and cabbage.

Why are you naming a cafe after a murderous monster for God's sake? Would you name a restaurant Cromwell Cafe??

The food was acceptable, but for a more authentic Mao experience they should slaughter tens of millions of Chinese people during the meal.Also, in keeping with Mao's beliefs about capitalism, tipping should result in being sent to a "re-education camp" where patrons will survive for weeks on a single handful of rice.

The food was terrible. It was greasy, yet tasteless as if they were trying to appeal to Americans. Did I mention that the restaurant honors, with its name, a horrific, mass murdering dictator? As if the food wasn't reason enough not to go here, they make it easy by naming the establishment for a brutal communist. I do have a positive comment, however. It's better to be at this restaurant than in one of Mao's prison camps.

Cafe Mao's eclectic mix of Thai, Indonesian and other oriental cuisines is exciting and considering Asian is the cuisine du jour - surprisingly affordable. It is possible for two people to have a three-course meal in the evening with a bottle of wine (or a couple of oriental beers) and still have change from £50. For those of us without expense accounts or limitless disposable incomes this is the restaurant to go to.
