Soul food
Soul food via Seoul​

Fried chicken and beer. A match made in heaven, right? Koreans love the combo so damn much they’ve dedicated a whole word to it. Pretty much a national pastime, Chimac comes from “chi”, short for “chikin” plus “mac” from "maekju", Korean for beer.

Inspired by this fried chicken obsession, we're proud to bring a taste of Seoul to the heart of Dublin. Think crispy free-range chicken that’s irresistibly good and sauce so delicious you’ll question all life decisions so far.

AMAZING FOOD!! So good. And the service was excellent, second to none, very helpful in explaining the food types and just in general. Very casual place, kind of a take out feel but the food was so much better than a take out. Highly recommended!! .

Got in and was sat by the window, I have a bad back so I asked for the lower chairs and was told that they were all booked out (even though I also booked. And my table was for 3 people and there was two lower tables available that could seat two) I was physically very uncomfortable for the duration of this dining experience. Usually I get takeaway but wanted to treat myself to an outing. The burger was good. Flavors are amazing as always but burger was kinda cold. - maybe it was left sitting on counter or pre made? As the bun was a bit soggy. Chips were over cooked and a lot of oily ones. Didn’t get dessert as I wasn’t able to stay for too long. Service is good. Main waitress seemed a bit stressed but she was grand & considering how busy it was too!
Overall 6 & a half out of 10.

Top class meal and service. Craft beers are good but expensive - would like option of more traditional drinks also. Place is a bit bright they could dim the lights to create a better vibe for an evening meal but overall very good
