Had a great meal here last week for a family dinner. We dined at 6 so had the option of the a la carte or early bird. We were served poppadoms and chutney as we sat down - a lovely selection of chutneys, really delicious! I went with the potato cakes to start - would definitely recommend, great flavours! And...

While having a meal in Ananda recently I got the chance to talk to its Head Chef, Sunil Ghai (Restaurant association of Ireland CHEF OF THE YEAR 2013), and we discussed the increasing popularity of vegetarian dishes. Sunil offered to cook us some of his favourites sometime. We took him up on his kind offer last night and ten of... More

Fantastic place, scrumptious menu, lovely decor, warm and welcoming atmosphere. The food was out of this world - extremely tasty and presented beautifully.

... possibly in Ireland. I mean it! Ananda is spectacular. Service and food second to none. I don't say this lightly. Indian food ticks a lot of boxes for me but this is a whole other level. I've been here on New Year's Eve and most recently on a Tuesday. Even during the week, it's an event. I promise you... More

Ok, this restaurant was recommended by friends and we checked out the reviews on the homepage and after reading positive comments from Ireland´s leading restaurant critics, we had high hopes. The restaurant is situated in Dundrum Town setting, and its location beside KFC chicken and upstairs from the cinema tells you that this resturant is designed to catch those going... More

This was my best indian experience ever, very nice and professional place. The tasting menu is good quality and good price, the only advice il have is to make the main course a bit smaller is to big for a tasting , everything else is spot on , well done keep it up. Highly recommended!

I visited the restaurant with my boyfriend last night to celebrate my birthday. Monday evening, it was a quiet night. First things that wowed me were the colours and the big frames of the art pieces in the restaurant and in the hall. They let us seat while they were getting our table ready.

Our daughter presented us (my wife and me) with a gift voucher for Ananda in Dundrum. We knew of the restaurant from our visits to the Jaipur restaurants, which are excellent, so we were expecting great things. We were not disappointed. We arrived earlier than expected and were shown to a table near the window. I noted that the glassware... More
