    Can anyone recommend any unusual or unique restaurants in Dublin?

    It can be in any price range.

    Can also be any type of food.
    Open to any suggestions!

    Cheers:)

    Maybe the Teppan Yaki in Yo Thai certainly different and I found the food to be very nice aswell.

    Its located in Mount Merrion

    The Chameleon (Indonesian) in Temple Bar, especially the upstairs room where it is all low seating on cushions. They have a set priced tasting menu per person and if you're in a group then dozens and dozens of small dishing come out for sharing.

    Also Little Jerusalem in Rathmines, which has delicious Middle Eastern cuisine. It is also BYO so you can splash out on a really special bottle of wine in a supermarket and drink it there for free. It is also one of the few restaurants in Dublin that you can drink alcohol in on a Good Friday - they can do this as the law prohibits the sale of alcohol but not the consumption of it. As they are BYO they are not selling it. Its become a bit of a tradition for me and a few friends to meet there on Good Fridays, we stock up on wine the night before and then toast the death of Christ with a few bottles of wine and a kebab.

    i suppose you could call the epicurian foodhall on liffey street/middle abbey street unique. it has lots of different cafes all under one roof

    I'd recommend "Foam" on strand street in the italian quarter.
    More of a café restaurant but it has very interesting décor in the place. Very quirky.

    MV Cill Airne towards the Point is unusual in that it's on a ship. Ate there recently, food was fantastic. They have an over 18s only policy for safety reasons.

    El Bahia has a room done up in the style of a Moroccan tent. Sounds better than I describe it :P

    Chai Yo on Baggot St, Teppenyaki style food and entertainment (really cheesy guitar playing and singing!).

    The food is really good (I like Japanese style cooking anyway), and its fun and a bit different, you'd be entertained anyway.

    La Peniche is a barge that runs a few locks down the Grand Canal and back during the dinner service. I thought the food was pretty decent too.

    +1 You've never lived till you've had a bunch of men sing Celine Dion's The Power of Love... :pac:

    +1 for Chameleon...make sure to request one of the low tables on booking. The food is fab, and it's lovely to be able to lounge around on the cushions with a full belly
    Dada on South William Street is worth checking out too...Moroccan decor and food. The tagines are gorgeous, especially the chicken and pear

    Mongolian Bbq in Temple Bar well worth a visit, pick out all your own veg noodles meat spices and sauces as much or as little as you like, and chef cooks infront of you, great spot

    Went there for a Good Friday dinner this year (they can serve alcohol because they're on the water) and found the food to be excellent. Also the staff were really great.

    Nice one! Some great recommendations, been checking out the places and these are exactly the kind of places I'm looking for. Gonna be tough to pick a place, looking towards The Chameleon, Chai Yo and El Bahia at the minute.
