Review on Mao Restaurant
Part of the innovative Mao stable, this livewire eclectic venue is in a prime spot near Dun Laoghaire harbour and is a high-octane destination for the sailing and wind-surfing crowd.
Like its relatives, it hits the button with a kaleidoscopic assortment pan-Asian and fusion dishes drawn from all quarters of the Far East. Menus are packed full of exciting flavours and esoteric ingredients: curries, salads and stir-fries figure prominently, and the repertoire blazes its way through roast pumpkin spring rolls, aromatic duck with mango and hokkien noodles, crispy whole sea bass served on steamed wong bok (Chinese cabbage) with ginger, onions and soy, or teriyaki salmon on mixed greens with sesame seeds. For afters, there might be anything from sticky date pudding to green tea mousse.
There are branches in Dundrum Shopping Centre and at 2 Chatham Row in the centre of Dublin; Cafι Mao also has outlets in Glasgow and Cape Town, with more in the pipeline.
