A few months ago I brought one of my oldest, and most outspoken, friends to Neon with her kids for some lunch. This particular friend has been lucky enough to have visited Thailand on many occasions and was even luckier to have lived there for some time. Upon entering this casual street food style diner she marched straight up to the counter and, while eyeballing the kitchen staff beyond, asked if the food was “actually Thai?”.
The fact that my friend has since made many repeat visits when in Dublin ought to tell you something about the authenticity and quality of the food on offer at Neon.
The interior is quite sparse and industrial but has a great, friendly neighborhood feel. But to be honest the atmosphere here is largely down to the standard of the food. People just seem to be having a good time when eating here. It’s a real case of good food making for happy customers.
And just to ramp up the feel good factor all dishes are delivered to your table with a complimentary ice cream cone so once you’re finished eating you can try your hand at operating the ice cream machine for dessert!
