Fantastic Food

Despite regularly eating in Ananda we have never reviewed it before so it's time to rectify that. It's tucked away in the cinema side of the centre, away from the other major restaurants behind HMV, a real hidden gem. It is quite simply the best restaurant food in Dublin, Irish or Indian.

Trip to dundrum means dining in ananda & we are always happy. Food is beautifully presented and well surprised few times with lovely complimentary tasters. Service can be a bit pretentious but never mind. Early bird options are good too. Love the robata grilled meat, flavours are really good and authentic. One of many jaipur flagships. Do not miss if...

Out for dinner with a few girlfriends and was very impressed with the restaurant. Presentation was first class and flavors unbelievable. To start I would highly recommend the Howth Lobster which was delicious. A good atmosphere and pleasant staff. Although slightly on the expensive side, definitely worth a visit.

I have been visiting to Ananda since it came up in Dundrum Shopping Center. It's bit strange that, never gotta a chance to write any review as I have been numerous times to this place and to this atmosphere. Today, I am writing the review simply because of what I tasted this evening. The Lamb Shank, If you not in... More

I visit ananda regularly. Have been back again twice in the last month. It is truly my favorite restaurant. Absolutely everything about this place deserves 5 stars. Consistently amazing food, brilliant and knowledgeable service and always a great buzz about the place. Can't wait till my next visit. :-)
