Very good Indian food - a favourite of ours when going out in Dublin. Their Chicken Tikka Masaala (Tandoori Murgh) is wonderful, as is the butter chicken, there is also a fantastic tandoori jumbo prawn dish on the starter menu which comes with a delicious melon salad, the fusion of flavours and the freshness of the prawns is absolutely divine....

This restaurant has really nice Indian food and they modify the menu for vegetarians. They will also go a long way to cater to egg allergic individuals as well. The décor is warm and soft music so you can enjoy your company. The restaurant is situated in Dundrum shopping mall, so you will enjoy your shopping and dining! A three... More

After eating many substandard "Indian" meals recently I came to this restaurant yesterday to celebrate Diwali and was very pleasantly surprised. It is a very modern and tastefully decorated restaurant. The staff are very attentive, welcoming and efficient and the menu is appetising. We had food from the vegetarian menu and the starter of spiced potato (a form of aloo... More

I visited Ananda on recommendation from a work colleague (who is a big fan of Indian cuisine). We arrived via the entrance from the shopping centre (which is clearly a secondary entrance), it was a little strange because to get to the bar to have a drink we had to walk trough the dining room; I think that they should...

Visited here on a Wednesday night without booking. We had to wait a few mins for a table but it created a good first impression that the place was so busy. Service was excellent. Service was prompt but not rushed. Food delicious. The only downside is that it is quite expensive.

I have visited Ananda on several occasions, most recently in August and September - I highly recommend the restaurant to those familiar with Indian food and also those new to this cuisine. The early bird menu is great value and offers a high quality and varied menu. The knowledgeable waiters will advise on flavours which will make dish selection easy... More

The food is delicious and the service is excellent. The only small gripe I would have is that the Ladies Loo lets the experience down. The toilet paper is very cheap and the wallpaper in the cubicle was badly torn. Replace these, and you have the perfect venue!

I've been to Ananda several times at this stage and I've never been let down. The waiters always take their time with each table, explaining dishes or helping with orders if needs be and nothing is ever too much hassle. The food is impeccable and is among the best I've ever tasted in any Dublin restaurant. The early bird and... More

Dinner in Ananda was delicious, perfectly balanced flavors and the service was impeccable. Indian food is one of my favorites so I am slightly biased but even the cocktails were fab!
