I ordered one chicken Sze Chuan and one portion of chips. It only cost me €7.95 and the food is so delicious 😋 !!! It's really worth buying such a big portion at this price in Kilkenny. Strongly recommend to those backpack travelers.

Lovely place with great quality of food. Beef in Dynasty Sauce was particularly nice. All what you can eat for €14.95 is definitely better value that any other chip-shops around. Will come back to this restaurant any time passing Kilkenny again, highly recommend.
