We went here whilst at an exhibition down the road. The service was ok, and the food was too. It wasn't amazing, and I felt the overall bill was expensive for what we experienced.

Love this place and the atmosphere. The food is always really fresh and the staff always lovely. It's a great place and the location means it's perfect for a nice hot meal after (or before) a day at the Rugby.

Kites is a very reliable " traditional " Chinese restaurant in Ballsbridge. On the night we were there , a lively mix of business parties , families , and couples were happily enjoying the well presented food . This is not aspirational Chinese food like the peerless China Sichuan but it is very enjoyable nonetheless . Seafood dishes were particularly... More

Enjoyed the food, but a little disappointing from the last time as visited. Food a little on the bland side. Good service.

I have been visiting Kites restaurant for many years and still consider it the best Chinese restaurant I have ever eaten in anywhere in the world. The staff are very welcoming, great service and wonderful menu. A big 'thank you' to all the staff for their attention to detail. Hope to be back very soon!

This is an exceptional restaurant for Chinese food. Everything about this place sets it apart. The restaurant is is very comfortable (though some of the decorating is a bit old fashioned). There is a very large menu with a great variety of food. Over many visits I have tried a number of dishes, and have never been disappointed. Service is... More

Peking Duck dry and shredded carrot even drier! Main courses average so overall it was a very average experience. The prices are too steep and it's irritating that when paying by credit card one is asked on the machine if you wish to add a gratuity even though there is already a service charge. We won't be back
