A REMARKABLE DINING EXPERIENCE
We pride ourselves on our reputation and return customers. Find out why we are Dublin's favourite Asian dining experience. Our beautifully appointed dining room is in Ballsbridge, Dublin 4.
Kites Restaurant caused a real flutter amongst the social and foodie set when it first opened its doors some twenty years ago and it is still one of the best restaurants in Dublin for Chinese and Thai food.
It can be truthfully said that Kites was the first restaurant to give us real upmarket Chinese food at its very best rather than the usual high street fare of yellow curries, which was all we were used to. Up to that time all of the Chinese food on offer was Cantonese, but Kites introduced us to the spices of Szechuan and the sophistication of Peking style dishes.
We had a real blow out starting with succulent dim sum style prawn dumplings, grilled spicy scallops on skewers, lamb on blackcurrant sauce, and stuffed Lotus with prawn – how exotic is that. We then had a middle course of Aromatic Duck – this is always a real ‘crowd pleaser’ – I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love it – the waiter expertly shreds all the meat and skin from the duck leaving it ready for you to wrap it in little Chinese paper thin pancakes, you then top it with julienned cucumber and spring onions, sweet sticky plum sauce, tuck in the end, wrap it up and it is pure heaven in a bite!
In the heart of Ballsbridge overlooking Mr. Ball's famous bridge and the River Dodder.
