The Chameleon is down to earth and always good fun. This two-storey restaurant has a tiny ground-floor, but don't be misled, two more floors await. The top floor has low opium-style seating on cushions, and is a great location for getting an intimate group of people together. The food is generally excellent, and your best bet is to get a variety of dishes and dive in. The service is friendly and informative, and the Chameleon also recently won the coveted Beck's Taste of Temple Bar Award.
On seeing this restaurant from the outside, it looks small and not very attractive - but looks can be very deceiving.
The restaurant has two floors, with the upstairs particularly suitable for groups of 5 or more.
There is a fantastic ambience, with Indonesian decor, the smell of burning incense and candles.
The food itself, being Indonesian, is based around a menu where you order several small dishes (similar to Spanish Tapas), each having its own unique flavour. You really will be quite full after eating from about five or six different plates!
The food was unusual but very tasty, and the service was excellent.
This meal was by far the best we have had in a very long time.
