Dublin has its fair share of amazing Chinese restaurants. And according to a new list of 50 best Chinese restaurants in Europe, these two are pretty damn good.

China Sichuan in Sandyford made it to number 14 on the list, while Hang Dai on Camden Street made it to number 32.

The list was published by the Dubai-based travel company Big 7 Travel, with a restaurant in the UK taking the top spot.

Describing Camden Street’s Hang Dai, the publication writes, “There’s a lot to say about the truly unique atmosphere and dining experience to be had at Hang Dai in Dublin.

“But, we’re here to talk about the food. First-class, top-notch, ultra-delicious. Whatever you want to call it, it’s definitely some of the best Chinese food in Ireland.”

Meanwhile, they described Sandyford’s China Sichuan as “one of the best Chinese restaurants in Dublin”.

They wrote, “Enjoy Cantonese classics and some Sichuan specialities at one of the best Chinese restaurants in Dublin.

“China Sichuan uses fresh Irish produce as the protagonist for all of their dishes and then lets the ingredients melt together to form the most delicious Chinese delicacies in all of Europe.”

Other European cities that received multiple entries in the lost include Barcelona, Madrid, Vienna, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Amsterdam.

Claiming the number one spot is a restaurant in Blackpool called Michael Wan’s Mandarin.

Describing the eatery, the publication wrote, “If you’ve ever dined here, then you definitely can’t argue that Michael Wan’s Mandarin is without a doubt the best Chinese restaurant in Europe.

“Visitors come from all over the world just for the chance to try the elegant Cantonese dishes served here. Delicious and consistent, we’re positive that the food here is going to blow your mind.”
