After a few days of Irish pub fare during our Dublin vacation, my husband and I needed a serious dose of heat! Red Torch Ginger delivered and then some! The food was absolutely delicious, spiced just to how we requested, and presented beautifully. And they've got an amazing cocktail menu, to boot! Highly recommend this spot! (Do book in advance...

I was with a couple of friends last Sunday in town early and we all wanted Thai food. I suggested trying this place as I pass it every day and they agreed. We were fitted in without a booking by a very friendly lady. I was surprised to see that it was very full so early. We sat by the... More

The lady at front of house is friendly fun and inviting. Full menu service good although hard to understand the heavy French/Italian? accents of waiters. The major let down was the food. Samosas spring rolls mushed up tasteless vegetables. Duck in tamarind dreadful. Dried up duck with watery bland tamarind on the side. Give it a miss!!!!

I hire all the front of house staff and good English is a prerequisite for this job. I will follow up on your comments about this. I am saddened by... More

Well worth giving this place a try if you like thai food. Very good ambience and vibe to the place. Food portions quite substantial and quite hot (pepper wise) so be careful if you don't like too much heat. My waiter was very happy to advise. They have an early bird diner which reduces the price a little but does... More

Gary W, Owner at Red Torch Ginger, responded to this review

Hi Decap Great to read your very kind comments. Our Early Bird does save about 7 Euro per person so the saving is good if you are dining early. As you rightly mention, we are a very busy restaurant and its wise to book if you know you would like to dine with us at a particular time. I really... More

We just popped in for a quick Thai lunch, and great Thai food, good service, reasonable prices. Winelist short but offers good quality tipes. Staff and kichen are Thai too.

We had no booking and advised that they would need the table by 7 pm. Plenty of choice. House red delightful. Our table was needed before that and the Maitre D' sorted us out with minimum fuss to the cocktail bar.

I had a great meal at Red Torch Ginger restaurant. The food was fabulous - one of the starters on the menu give you a plate of one of each popular starter e.g. chicken satay, pork belly, which suits people who are indecisive like me! I am a sign language user and one waitress attempted to sign to us which... More
