Great Restaurant in Dundrum - well worth a visit

We went there on Saturday last for the 9.30 sitting and were very impressed. Our friends had been there on 2 previous occasions and raved about it so we all decided to go. All of the starters were out of this world and the presentation of the dishes was fab. Indian food unlike any restaurant I've... read more

I reviewed this restaurant a few years ago and said it was the best Indian food in Ireland. This time went with family for my wife's birthday. The service was awful. Unfriendly, rude and unresponsive. I also felt like they just wanted to push food on us to up the bill and BTW they know how to charge. €14.50 for... More

This is not my first or family's first time to this restaurant, the Indian food here is second to none.. flavours pour out of every dish and leaves you wowing each and every time. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. What an amazing experience... constency is hard to come by, but here its just standard. Stunning.

I'd wanted to try Ananda since it first opened but it's quite a distance away and we just never got around to it! We eventually got to try it recently and I loved it! We went for the Early Bird menu on a Saturday evening and made our choices easily. The place itself is spotlessly clean with very attentive but... More

Went here again in March for family celebration, again ambiance, service and food were five star, lucky to have somewhere in Dublin that is up there in terms of high quality Indian food on a par with the best that London has to offer. We'll be back!

Visited last Friday. Absolutely stunning meal. Scallops were perfection and the halibut was so delicate and perfectly cooked. I absolutely adore Ananda. My favourite restaurant. :-):-)

Have been a few times, every time service was great and food was so tasty, I was once told check out the bathrooms in any food establishment and you will get an idea of their hygiene standards, the bathroom here was spotless, can't wait to go back again

We visited Ananda on Saturday night to try their early bird menu and thought it was amazing value. The only thing that might deter me from this restaurant is that it's in Dundrum shopping centre but don't let that put you off. The decor is really lovely - maybe just in need of a slight refresh in places - and... More

This was my third time eating in Ananda and I have yet to be disappointed. The food here provides a great take on Indian food interpreting it superbly to make for one of the best meals I have had in Dublin, and as a local that is quite a lot. On top of this my girlfriend is unfortunate enough to... More
