Jamies Italian, Dundrum

JD and I have been to various Jamies Italian restos during our time in the big smoke and we have never been disappointed by them. Food is usually of a high standard and service friendly, efficient and relaxed. Because of this, we thought we would take Ma and Ba Chan to the Dublin outpost of this hugely popular chain for dinner the one night they were in town. Despite being a Monday night, the resto was heaving with people. We were seated in a booth near the back of the resto (and unfortunately, right opposite the toilets) - luckily for us, none of our party were particularly "chunky" in stature otherwise it would've been a tight squeeze as the seating was pretty tight!

Dinner started off well; we ordered a selection of starters to share which were all pretty tasty. Mains arrived and all 4 were either overseasoned or unbearably spicy. A real disappointment after all our experiences in Blighty :(
Share starters of bread basket, arancini, deep fried squid and meat plank - well executed and generally, pretty yummy

Ma Chan's main of seafood risotto - overpowered by so much chilli that she could not finish her dish

My main of baked hake - made the cardinal mistake of ordering fish on a Monday!!! Also overpowered by a whopping dollop of chilli sauce underneath the fish!
