Absolutely rotten food and service.Got my order wrong which I didn’t mind initially, rang them to change it and the girl who answered was really rude. She told me to pick the mushrooms out of the chicken curry. How about you get my order correct,...since I paid you for that service? Anyway, went back to the takeaway after throwing the previous batch in the bin, and the same girl asked me to return the old food! I said would you like me to call back a third time with food I retrieved from my wheelie bin? No apology, just dirty looks and attitude. The girl doesn’t deserve the job there. Shocking! Once I finally got home with the food, the chips and chicken were really stale. Really, really poor experience and obviously I won’t be going back there.More

Used to eat here regularly. Gone way too overpriced 10.50 for 2 slices of toast with maple syrup. The staff were good to give us a discount of 1 euro but still very pricey. Won't be returning in a hurry

Ate lunch here yesterday, however will not be returning. Ordered falafel plate(12 Euro), however it was very small for the price and the falafel was tasteless, the rest of dish was a random mixture of flat bread and vegetables(some cold and roasted others pickled some...raw) which did not seem to compliment each other. Mentioned it to waitress on paying and she did not seem to care much other than to say she would mention it to kitchen. Nicer places in Limerick for lunch.More

The food and coffee were superb. I had the porridge which was delicious. However, this was my first visit and I had no idea of their specific covid arrangements. I was scolded strongly by a member of staff for standing in the wrong spot to...order!!More
