Teppanyaki
Chai Yo restaurant is split into two distinct areas: Teppanyaki and Dining Room experience

TEPPANYAKI
Not your typical restaurant experience, the teppanyaki table is hosted by an expert chef who puts on a show while serving up generous portions of great food. The teppanyaki tables are perfect for a date night or a large party and can seat up to 45 people.

Dining Room
Our beautiful dining room can accommodate large dining parties of up to 70 people. We have a separate menu for the dining room which include dishes from Japanese, Thai, and Chinese cuisine.

Lovely food. Down stairs is a bit dark and removed from the fun upstairs but fine. Service and food were 100% though

Grand spot for lively celebrations like hen parties. The staff were lovely. Just not what you want if your focus is a traditional dining experience.

If you are looking for a Hen or Stag party venue, you should come here.
If you are looking for an authentic restaurant to enjoy a dinning experience, categorically, do not go here.

When I came here, they wanted to sit us in the far corner so they could get a few more covers in.
Secondly, there was a very loud large group next to us. They did not warn me when I booked.
Thirdly, they deliberately kept the bottle of sake we ordered, away from the table to try and get us to buy more drinks. This was deliberate attempt and very underhanded.
Fourthly, I was not impressed with the mediocre quality of the food.
Finally, whilst we were eating, they came out with a guitar and started playing with the food. Needless to say that I was appalled at this.

I will never go to this restaurant ever again.

Great location, great food & service. We were downstairs so a bit isolated but that didn’t affect our evening as it meant we could chat easily.

The food was superb and the atmosphere generated by the staff singing was fantastic. A great night was had by all. Will definitely be back for more! The Teppanyaki tables were not available on the night we visited but these looked like great craic and are well worth a look!

Great atmosphere, service, and food was nice and we even got serenaded by a singer and guy on a guitar. Our waiter was fantastic with a good sense of humour.

There are two different restaurants here and the same staff seem to operate both. Downstairs, normal table service, is easily booked and nothing special. The teppanyaki restaurant at ground level looks much better craic.

We had my friends surprise birthday here and it was brilliant. Unfortunate we didn’t have a Teppenyaki table but we didn’t book in time. We were one of the loudest tables in there, sorry about that!
The band were excellent and the food was so good!

We were visiting from the US and wanted to try different ethnic restaurants in addition to the traditionally Irish. This place was excellent. I had the crispy chicken and my friends had the salmon and sea bass. All were excellent. The service fell down a bit towards the end of the meal, so it only cost one star. Otherwise, I highly recommend.

Was quality friendly service with entertainment and the food really surprised me. The flavour of everything was top notch. Even something as simple as egg fried rice tasted unreal but watching it being cooked in front of you made a difference too
