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. :-)

Very average in all areas , does not live up to it's reputation and it seems standards have slipped since the last visit.

I've been eating at Ananda on a fairly regular basis since it opened, and I've posted several reviews over those years. Usually, with changes in staff, management, economic environment etc. my favourite restaurants often change for the worse over time, but this can't be said for Ananda. It is still, without a shadow of a doubt, the best ethnic restaurant... More

What flavours and tastes! It's a really culinary adventure. Yes, it helps if you like Indian food, but this is excellent - I'd say Michelin rate food. Far better here than it's sister site in Greystones, Wicklow. This is the Flagship for service and Indian food in Ireland.

I have had dinner there three times over the past year. My experience has gotten better each time. Both food and staff have always been top notch and to top it off, you get a free starter with a selection of 4 dips. I would as far to say it is my favourite restaurant right now.
