Even though we had to wait to be seated even though we had booked, I didn’t mind. Then to be told we had to leave at 8:30, 45 mins into our booking. We had to wait over 15 minutes for our drinks. Not once did we receive an apology for the inconvenience caused. As a social media influencer and food blogger I feel I need to express my concerns regarding how unwelcome you made us feel. I could not recommend the blind tiger to anyone. After all this we received an incorrect bill and after it was amended we received to apology. As of now I could not recommend this restaurant to my family and freinds. I hope to revisit The Blind Tiger in the future to give you a second chance but as of now I am deeply disappointed.
Staff was very poor, orders took over an hour and drinks were taken from our table when we weren’t finished
Tables need to be managed properly, wait time too long for drinks(55 mins at one stage) , no structure to service. Staff very friendly but overall it needs more organisation
The food was amazing and the cocktails were so good!!
Amazing food, excellent staff, extremely covid friendly! Will deffo be back
Food was so tasty and great value for money. New ordering app launched on night we were there but we had difficulty ordering from it. Great idea but may slow things down a bit initially!!
Hi Niamh, Thank you for your review! We are still working on the new app and appreciate the feedback. We hope you will see an improvement if you visit in future! We hope to see you again soon. Laurie & The Camile/Blind Tiger Team

Annie served us on friday night and she honestly amazing!! Could not fault her one single bit. Such a friendly, energetic, kind and bubbly girl who attended to our every need and we even called the manager over to compliment her on annie.
she deserves recognition and a raise! Thank You Annie!!!

Service was very poor. Very hard to order a drink when we did order a drink we waited at least 30 mins to get our drinks. After we asked about our drinks we finally got them and moments later we were asked to leave because they were closing. Very disappointing service.

Service was very poor. Table was booked for 5 people. Far too small to enjoy a meal.

Went to the blind tiger for a date night Wednesday and the staff couldn't have been any better! So attentive never an empty drink infront of us, constantly making sure we were ok. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere from the quiz night which was happening next door to us in the garavogue was unbelievable. Have to say we enjoyed ourselves very much and the cocktails were to die for we will definitely be back in this week to try their new cocktail of the week as I tried last week's and am intrigued to see what it is this week! Would recommend this beautiful establishment to anyone and everyone. Great place to go for date nights the staff couldn't have made our night any better. So lucky to get a booking here at such late notice, in future I'll be booking ahead of time as the place does be booked out due to such high demand it's great to see businesses helping eachother and to see the support this beautiful place is getting. A huge thank you to all and our wonderful waitress Jessica who was very attentive and on the ball all night from what we were watching!

We are very proud of our award winning cocktails and Camile Thai food, I'm really glad you enjoyed everything. Hope to see you again soon! Laurie, & The Blind Tiger Team
Our last day in Sligo and we really enjoyed it. There was a mix-up with our order but they sorted it and gave us complementary drinks. Thai food was really good will return next time we visit Sligo. Cocktails really good 🍹🍹

Fantastic service, outstanding food and the atmosphere was amazing and upbeat. Went here Wednesday for the quiz night and what a great idea it is!!! Quiz nights every Wednesday in the garavogue highly recommend it's great to do with a bunch of friends and the laughs that were had was very much needed. The staff were very friendly and they are now doing cocktails of the week, asked for something special to celebrate a friends birthday and once again the staff and management delivered!! We will definitely be back, it was a brilliant evening!
Hi Erinannie Thank you for leaving you positive review, we are delighted you enjoyed your experience with us we will look forward to having you join us again soon Sinead & team at the Garavogue
I like my Thai but this was not up to the mark at all.
Hi Catriona thank you for taking the time to leave your comments if you would like to get in touch to let us know how you felt that the Thai food could have improved we would like to hear from you, you can reach me on 0719155541 or firstname.lastname@example.org Sinead & team at The Blind Tiger/ Camile Thai
really enjoyed the food - lovely enthusiastic staff, but bringing starters and mains together is a silly idea, so we didnt bother with starters. also, the fact the the food appears to come from next door via the outside street, left my food slightly cold, didnt ask the others. 2 mains came along with one rice, then the other two mains came, and after about 5mins the other 3 rice came. it would be better to serve all together. will definitely be back and have already recommended it.
Hi Neil thank you for leaving your mostly positive review, I'm slightly confused that you got the impression the food comes via the outside street and would like to assure you we serve Camile Thai is prepared, cooked and served from our specially customised kitchen in the same building, It is unusual that your food didn't come together we will look into this but we will look forward to having you join us again and thank you for your recommendations Sinead & Team at The Blind Tiger
Camile Thai was really nice. Food was served really quickly and it tasted lovely.
Would definitely recommend if you like thai food.
Hi Stacey Thank you for your positive review and recommendation, we hope to have you join us again soon Sinead & team at The Blind Tiger
Not that impressed to be honest and I hate leaving negative reviews. My food was cold and my daughter order tofu but her meal came out with what looked like fatty pork in it. It turned out to be fake chicken (which is made of gluten) she couldn't eat it.
We got a refund for that part of the meal, the waitress checked with the kitchen and they had run out of tofu. Please tell customers that instead of substituting it. If someone was gluten intolerant there would have been issues.
I was really looking forward to trying Camille Thai but I wouldn't go back.
Hi Val Firstly thank you for taking the time to leave your review and we will be looking into this to ensure that your experience does not happen again, At Camile Thai we are genuinely always so careful when it comes to allergens and have a full breakdown so this disappoints us to hear. We Assure you we will review your comments and speak with all relevant staff, please feel free to contact us on 0719155541 or email email@example.com and we will be more than happy to discuss your experience
I went there last weekend. Bit of a q but we were shown to our table in time. Food was great. Staff very friendly.
Although there were delays with food due to issues in the kitchen. The waitresses didn't keep us waiting for drinks and the food was top notch when it arrived. Great night at blind tiger ☺
We booked our table online. Arrived and got seated. We then ordered drinks and were handed food menu. The girl took our order for food. We waited a long time and still no drinks, we asked someone and then drinks were given. We waited a long time and then asked about foot, we were told the gas was gone in the kitchen that we may have seen them walking in with gas. Two hours later and still no food. The girl who took our order said she remembered taking it and she would get the manager to talk to us. He came out and apologized. He admitted they had lost our order. At this stage it's 9pm. Our table was booked for 7.30. so we were offered a platter for two which was not very filling when we came out for a meal.
The location is one of the best spots in Sligo beside the river. My girlfriend and I sat outside and were seen to promptly with menus and ask what beverages we would like. Unfortunately that day they were out of both crunchies and oreos for their milkshakes, but our waitress was so nice, I really regret not getting her name. I have worked in the industry and I know how stressful and busy it can get, but the customer service we received was definitely the highlight of our lunch date.
Food was lovely, had the Camille Thai, we sat outside in the new seating area as sun was shining and it was very comfortable and spacious.
many items on the menu were not available, but what we had was really good. Service was a bit slow but to be fair it was a beautiful evening and that brought a lot of people out.
Hi Margaret Thank you for taking the time to leave your review and we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your overall experience with us and understanding that once the sun shines that everyone not alone wants to sit outside the Blind Tiger all along the banks of the Garavogue and we have collection and delivery orders also which increases wait time, I will look into the items on the menu not being available I feel this may be due to unprecedented orders at beginning, we do hope to see you again.
Awesome food nead more table staff felt like u were annoying them asking for things when they were so busy and too many tables to deal with
Hi CamG Thank you for your review and we are delighted to hear you enjoyed your Camile Thai with us, we have recently hired additional staff however never be afraid to ask staff for assistance as they will be more than happy to help even if they appear busy, however we will review your comments and ensure that your experience is not re-encountered, we do hope to have you join us again soon Sinead and the team at The Blind Tiger
Staff are so helpful and kind and the Thai food was delicious, I will definitely be back !
I visited here over the weekend for the first time since after lockdown. Staff were very aware and very attentive. Sanitisers located in all public areas aswell as staff members sanitising tables and condiments etc. Their New menu camille Thai is new to the building and I’m in love ! Such variety on the menu aswell as packaging thats 100% compostable so no waste. Finding food and being on a specialised diet is very tricky but they were so accommodating! The food came out in a timely manner so I was able to enjoy the remainder of my time here drinking the quirkiest cocktails ! I’m very picky when it comes to cocktails, the barman told me that he would whip me up something special, and I was only delighted.The weather was absolutely scorching so I was able to enjoy the sun in their new outdoor area,Where the picnic tables were all distanced from each other. As someone who has been anxious coming out to restaurants with the virus being around, the team here were very welcoming and understanding.I will definitely be back for more!
The Camile food was amazing,I received excellent service for the time I spent here. The staff are so friendly and helpful, the energy in the place was outstanding and I will definitely be back! Such an energetic place in times like these so nice to see.
Great food, drinks and staff. Amazing how quickly adapted to global health emergency.
Tasty food, friendly staff and a really nice atmosphere
Food was delicious but we sat with the food in front of us for 5/10 mins with no cutlery or plates to eat it on.
Poor treatment from staff made the experience unenjoyable
Service was awful! So so slow. Waiting for an hour for a drink , drinks were all messed up. Drinks were added to the bill that we didn’t ours.
