Our recent visit to this restaurant was to say the least extremely disappointing. Upon ordering my husband wanted Dahl and asked the waiter not to make it too spicy, when it came to the table it was inedible, all four of us tasted it..we called the waiter and explained to him it was too hot to eat, whereupon, he took...

My recent visit to Ananda Restaurant was without doubt, one of the finest dining experiences I have had to date.To be greeted by the award winning restaurant manager Benny Jacob, and to be presented with a menu created by the multi award winning chef Sunil Ghai was just the beginning of the most delightful evening. The menu is like no... More

Best place to eat in Dundrum. Indian food with a modern twist. The early bird is affordable and tasty. The tables are quite spacious which is nice

We ordered off the early bird which was €24 for two courses - tiger prawn starter had 3 prawns. Tikka Masala was good but a small portion. Pricey for 2 courses and prices during normal hours are hard to justify. Nice setting and good staff however.

I visited here on Saturday evening for a pre-Cinema dinner. The table was booked for 6.15 as the early bird (€24 for 2 courses) stops at 6.30pm. We ordered a cocktail to start and a bottle of wine which was on offer over the Christmas period (€46 down to €40) to have with our dinner. A slight irritation was that... More

My daughter and I had the early bird menu and I hope we didn't put them out too much by our presence, it felt we may have. We had a reservation and when we arrived at 5.30 the waiter was bringing us to a table between two others which were occupied. The restaurant was half empty so we requested a... More

Visited here a number of years ago and thought that it was terrific but this time it was very average in terms of food quality and taste, wine quiet expensive and ambiance not really very good. Would n't recommend it at the prices charged.
