It was great experience, first time we used first table and we just showed the email once we arrived. Food was delicious and people were so kind. We really enjoyed the experience!

This was our first time dining at Sisu Izakaya and we have only positive things to say!! The decor of the restaurant is simultaneously edgy and cozy. Our waitress was very attentive and our food was served promptly. We tried the teriyaki salmon ramen, the pork belly boa bun, kimchi fried rice, the spicy tuna and the salmon avocado rolls. I don't think we left a single grain of rice-every dish was so yummy! The kimchi fried rice and spicy tuna maki were my personal favorites-cannot recommend enough!

The food and service was amazing. The inside of the restaurant sets the mood to have a really enjoyable meal. The sushi is incredible and I highly recommend coming to Sisu Izakaya for lunch or dinner. 10 out of 10

What an experience! Everything was top spec. The restaurant is chic, the service friendly and the food, out of this world! For what we got and for the price we paid (plus tip), we felt like we had robbed them! Fabulous for sharing dishes - great to try a bit of everything, and wash it all down with an ice cold asahi. First time there but it definitely won't be the last. And kudos to First Table for making our gorgeous meal so affordable! Thank you :)

Food was so delicious and service was excellent. I was in Japan a couple of months ago and I actually felt like I was back there again, very authentic!

Firstly the waiting staff where polite and friendly, and the food was very nice. Well presented and lovely flavours. We Restaurant a bit cold, some heating would have been nice, and not all the mains where brought to the table together. I had to wait a little longer for mine. But in general the tasty food made up for the rest.

Me and my friends ordered ramen, sashimi, and some sushi. They were generous with the amount of food given. The ramen’s broth tastes so good!!! It doesn’t taste like msg. The food was fresh and yummy!

My sister and I had a fantastic experience this week at Sisu Izakaya. The menu is great with lots to choose from, so much so that we ordered three starters to share and two main courses. All were delicious, especially the chicken gyozas- I would go back to this restaurant for those alone! The waiter was lovely and very attentive. Couldn't have asked for a nicer experience!

The food and service was excellent. We ordered a mix of sushi, entrées and ramen. Every single thing was delicious, we cleaned our plates! The most delicious food I've ate in a long while. Highly recommend this place - great central location, attentive staff and exceptional food. We'll definitely be paying a visit again very soon.

Incredible food, very attentive service and a great deal overall. Had a great time dining at Sisu Izakaya. It was my first time using First Table and eating here, and I would definitely recommend both to anyone! The Chicken Yakatori was definitely the stand out dish!

Nice place for a short stop and quick meal. Really well priced when with first table discount . Welcoming, caring and fast service .

- dined at Sisu Izakaya on

This was our first time in Sisu Izakaya. We were immediately greeted and shown to our table.

The menu is amazing with a great amount of choice. We ordered two different starters to share of gyoza and tori karaage which were delicious.

For our main, we both ordered the chicken katsu curry. It was extremely tasty and came out very quickly after our starters. We then ordered the dragon roll having seen other diners order this and it was as tasty as it looked! We ordered a bottle of Malbec which paired well with the food.

The staff were lovely and very attentive. Our food came out very quickly. We couldn’t recommend this restaurant enough and are already planning our next trip here to continue sampling the menu!

The sushi was excellent. Very well presented and tasted great. The ramen was full of very interesting pieces which added to it's display immensely. The wait staff were pleasent and the food was very affordable. Thoroughly enjoyable experience all round.

First time having sushi and was amazing. So fresh and staff were very attentive

- dined at Sisu Izakaya on

Kelly Yin

The Restaurant has a rustic decoration and a feel of streetfood ambient. We ordered 2 bowls of ramen and 3 entrees.
I highly recommend the "soft shell crab maki" as it is not a popular choice among European and this maki needs more attention, I was glad they have it in their menu.
The bill was reasonable thanks to firsttable, we can't wait to book our next firsttable not only in Dublin but also in London! :).

Food was very good, especially the gyozas and bao. Everything was made fresh to order. Friendly service also. Will return!

Delicious meal and great service! Such good value food would definitely come back and pay full price, everything came out very quick and with a smile

Arrived early but they never put in my reservation. Wasn't a problem then as they had available tables. We ordered and the food came out pretty fast. Service at the beginning was prompt and good. We ordered 5 dishes but realised that one of the dishes didn't come out yet so we checked and they didn't put the order in. We reordered but it took much longer for the one dish to arrive and we had to ask twice for it. Wasn't a bad experience overall and the food was generally good.

We tried all the dumplings and were excellent. sushi was also very good. We were hoping to get some teriyaki dishes, as they were featured on the online menu, but the current menu no longer has them.

Had a selection of starter between 3 of us which were tasty and very nicely presented. Excellent value and friendly service. Only downside was we were seated downstairs on our own so rather lacking in atmosphere. Overall a good experience.

- dined at Sisu Izakaya on

Great food, fast service. Will be back.

- dined at Sisu Izakaya on

We ordered gyoza (delicious) and some sushi rolls to share (average, good). We were seated in the basement which was quite cold, despite requesting heating to be turned on, and the service was a bit slow. Good value for money if keen on multiple sushi rolls since 50% off food but would rather dine in another japanese restaurant if paying full price.

- dined at Sisu Izakaya on

It was amazing !!! Food is excelent, I recomend the fried calamari.

- dined at Sisu Izakaya on

The staff were incredibly attentive and friendly. The food itself was ok, the sushi rice wasn't seasoned and the soy sauce had a bitter edge. The steamed buns/baos were lovely and would make a nice lunchtime meal. The ramen was decent enough. I would recommend you try out Sisu Izakaya at least once because something on the menu might be to your liking!

We had a lovely time at Isakaya. The food was gorgeous and the staff were really friendly.

I’ll definitely be back there very soon:-)

Good food. Service could have been better. Really small chairs and squashed tables so more of a grab a bite I a hurry place than a sit down meal. Gyoza was delish.

Catherine Griffin

Four of us came to dine here. We got to try lots of different dishes- why not when you are on first table eh??!! Every dish was delicious especially the short rib ramen- the meat on that was melt in the mouth. The service was a bit slow at times but over all very good and the staff were very friendly. Defo worth a try!!

Great food, great service! We tried a few of Sisu's starters -- after a few minutes our table was filled with all sorts of delicacies from dumplings to fritters. The starters where very good and having eaten most of them we just could order mains... However, I would recommend browsing the starters menu, the tastiest gems seems to be hidden in that section.

Sisu has a cool vibe. Defo perfect for a cute date or outing with a small group of friends. I loved the authentic Sushi experience with the chopsticks. The bellini cocktail is a great starter.

I would give it overall a 7/10.
