Another thing we love is that you can see the effort the chefs put into the food. Not only do they taste good, but they’re also plated nicely, adding to their appeal.

CONTACT DETAILS+353 1 873 6666

OPERATING HOURSMonday - Sunday: 12:00 PM - 11:00 PM

If you love hotpot, Lao Chinese and Korean BBQ Restaurant should be on top of your list! It has great options not only for a hotpot buffet but also for other food that you’d better go hungry to make sure you have room for all the great dishes they serve here! 

In addition to this, we love that they serve authentic Chinese food, not the frozen ones that some restaurants serve. The restaurant prepares the food fresh, so everything’s warm and flavourful.

Another thing we love about this restaurant is that they also have a wide selection of drinks which you can pair with your food. They even have alcoholic drinks like sake if you prefer a stronger drink.

We also love that the restaurant can be a party venue for a small group of people. It even has karaoke rooms that serve as added entertainment for the groups–just make sure you reserve in advance.

Speaking of reserve, the restaurant accepts walk-ins, so it’s okay to come without reservations. You also won’t have a hard time getting seated, which is a good thing for those who come hungry.

The only downside is that there’s a time limit for each table. So make sure you don’t dilly-dally and start eating once seated. 

Some staff also can’t communicate well in English though they try very hard. Make sure you clarify your words so as not to end up in a miscommunication.

Great food choices

I always go here for the all-you-can-eat buffet. You can choose as much meat as you want and there’s a section inside where you can get all your seafood and veggies. There’s also a really good sauce bar in which you can create your own dipping sauce. Desserts are also included in the buffet with a choice of a couple of sweet cakes and fruit.—Dung Truong, Google Reviews

Authentic Chinese food

Incredible authentic Chinese food. We go regularly and always great dishes.

Hot pot is awesome! Can’t recommend enough this restaurant—Elena Gutierrez, Google Reviews

4. Honghop

ADDRESS5A Newsland Cross Shopping Centre, Clondalkin, Co. Dublin, Ireland
CONTACT DETAILS+353 1 464 2100

OPERATING HOURSMonday - Thursday, Saturday: 5:00 PM - 10:30 PM

Friday: 4:30 PM - 10:30 PM

Sunday: 5:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Honghop isn’t your typical buffet wherein you serve yourself by getting food on your own. Instead, you can order unlimited food from the menu and the staff will serve them to you.

This is a good thing for us because food is cooked fresh at every order. This means you get to enjoy your food warm and freshly cooked.

In addition to this, we love that the food isn’t greasy. Some Chinese restaurants serve very oily food, but Honghop makes sure to go slow on the oil while still retaining the authentic flavour.

We also love that there’s a variety of choices in the menu so you have plenty of options. Even picky eaters will have something they’ll like!

The staff is very accommodating as well, which we think is one of the restaurant’s strengths. In fact, you can ask them for food that’s currently not being served, and they’ll try their best to provide it for you.

We also love that walk-ins are accepted, and they can easily be seated as well. The restaurant also accepts bookings for large parties, so if you’re looking for a party venue with good food, Honghop’s your place!

Just a heads-up though—during peak hours, the staff can get really busy so there’s a tendency to wait long for your food. Sometimes they mixes up order as well, which can be pretty inconvenient, though they make sure to rectify the mistakes asap.


  • Flavourful food
  • Food is cooked fresh
  • Friendly staff
  • Great variety of food
  • Food isn’t greasy
  • Accepts bookings for large parties
  • Easily seated
  • Accepts walk-ins

Food is cooked fresh

The food is cooked fresh for each round of orders and it’s delicious, have never had a bad meal, and the staff are lovely and friendly, however, the more you order for the all-you-can-eat the Smaller the portions get each time and also the longer the wait for the waiter to take your next round of orders.The all-you-can-eat is great value though, would defo recommend—Jessica Stokes, Google Reviews

Great value for money

Really tasty food, and friendly staff, would definitely recommend it. €25 menu really surprised us – the food was really good and great choices.—Allison McEvoy, Google Reviews

Just a little warning that some food can be a bit too oily for you. Also, we really think the place needs more maintenance since it looks a bit old.
