Review on Mao Restaurant

The youngest member of the Mao mini-chain is currently the jewel in its crown, a stylish two-storey venue in a quiet piazza overlooking the peaceful fountains of Mill Pond. Its proximity to the Dundrum Shopping Centre makes it a godsend for anyone wanting time out from the exhausting pleasures of retail therapy.

Like its relatives, this animated place 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 Dun Laoghaire and at 2 Chatham Row in the centre of Dublin; Mao also has outlets in Glasgow and Cape Town, with more in the pipeline.
