Come here for the chicken and when I say chicken the chilli and butter chicken! This place has a young hipster vibe to it and the ambience is energetic. The food Is simple but done well and tasty. It is a tiny bit over priced for the actual type of food you are purchasing - I mean it is just... More

We had a very strange experience here. Not sure if the 11 euro person minimum is a real rule or not -- but it was very off-putting and unprofessional. Would not recommend. The food honestly isn't worth the price for what it is.

We were seated quickly in this lively restaurant that serves fun chicken dishes. The tables are communal and casual. The service is friendly and efficient.

Was here today and absolutely loved the place. The decor is funky and the first thing I noticed. The soy garlic chicken is my favourite chicken I've ever gotten it was absolutely delish. The playlist was great too and made the whole experience even better than before 😌

This is a fast food joint for students, but service isn't fast. Don't over over food, a half bird and sides are enough for 2. The chicken is actually tasty. Skip the asian noodles. Services are very slow and we were starving. This seems to be a popular date place for college students.

Was in here a couple of times over the years living in Dublin. Went in for lunch recently with the place less than a third full. We brought our 6 month old in a buggy. We were told abruptly by staff member that the only table capable of taking a buggy was occupied and they didn't want anywhere else blocked.... More

Have eaten here a handful of times. Went back this week for lunch and felt it wasn't as good as before. Since I was last there the wings have changed, they now seem like the wings you would buy in a supermarket to cook yourself. Flavour on the outside lovely but not great inside. Soy and Garlic chicken still brilliant... More

All of the servers really don't know how to smile. They were all fairly rude and weren't helpful at all when I was asking questions about the menu. The service itself was slow and we waiting for over 15 mins before someone even came to take our drinks order despite the two other people on our table receiving great service!!... More

We were 2 minutes from walking out. The one and only person serving couldn't even take our drinks order, even though 2 other tables who arrived after us had had theirs taken and one even served food. One couple who arrived after us walked out as they weren't served at all. Food was good, but everything else poor. After we'd... More

Crackbird is a neighborhood gem. Great tasting chicken with unique side dishes. I had the chicken crunches with chili coating and spicy sweet potato noodles. My friend had a big bucket of yummy buttermilk fried chicken. Super moist. Casual and friendly environment and service. Modestly priced and great portions.
