On my trip to Dublin, I walked passed Crackbird and made a mental note to try it. Got a chance to go Saturday night (Dec 17) as it was too busy in other restaurants. Very satisfied and happy our group went here. Buttermilk chicken hits the spot and the dirty fried rice was satisfying. Ordered 3 sauces too for some... More

Now don't get me wrong, i am no philistine, I understand the attraction in trying to do something fresh and energetic, I get the hipster vibe that emanates from this place and while that is not for everybody, that shouldn't be a barrier to a great dining experience. So in the spirit of culinary adventure this couple of 40-somethings ventured... More

Hmmm arrived about 730pm. Restaurant was packed. Liked the ambience of the restaurant. Had good music but gets hard to talk to friends with the backgrd loud music. It was a little difficult to get the attention of the waiter. All seemed pretty busy. Food came roughly 15 to 20min later. We had the lemon parm wings by the dozen... More

This place can be either really nice or really poor been a few times and the food quality has varied a lot , the fried chicken can be a mess of grease or absolutely spot on, if they did warm sides that'll be something last time I went all the side dishes were cold

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
