August 2014 Knowing Mao for years now as a sit down restaurant in Dun Laoghaire, County Dublin, we found Mao at home, a take away, at The Square Shopping Mall in Tallaght, Dublin 24. It had also a seating area in front of the counter, so you could also eat there, which we did. The interior is Asian understated and contemporary. We arrived just in the nick of time to get the Lunch Bowl Special. It's available every day from noon to 17.00 hours. At the counter I ordered two green tea, a honey sesame chicken with Jasmin Rice and a Nasi Goreng. We were asked to take a seat and the meal would be delivered to our table. The tea arrived first. It was steaming hot and the tea bag left in the cup. We could decide ourselves how strong we wanted it. Our dishes were freshly prepared by Asian chefs in the open kitchen. Business was brisk with customers taking away or to eat in. Our dishes arrived after a little bit of more waiting. They were also hot, delicious and huge. We definitely weren't hungry when we left. The cost for all four items was 18.90 Euro (ca. 25.35 USD). We enjoyed our meal and it reminded us very much about holidays we spent in Japan, Thailand and Malaysia. The staff was friendly and the service quick. When we are back in Tallaght, South Dublin and we crave Thai or some other Asian cuisine we are going to be back at Mao. Would we recommend this restaurant to a friend? YES! Would we visit again for lunch? YES! Thank you and safe travels.
