Luxury dining experience

Had lunch with my sisters during a shopping trip to Dundrum recently and Ananda certainly lived up to it's reputation. First impressions were great, décor is really luxurious, warm and inviting. Lots of round tables which is great for groups of people. I had the Ananda Salad to start, the best... read more

Really enjoyed a family meal here recently. Food and service were great. The menu is very big, possibly even too big? They have a selection of more traditional indian dishes and then a number of fusion style dishes which is where they really stand out. It is not cheap but worth it on a special occasion!

My wife & I popped in before cinema in Dundrum last night. Some of my work colleagues had been and said the food was nice. We ordered from the early bird menu ( €25 for 2 courses ) but we were full after so had plenty of food. The service, atmosphere and most importantly the food was top notch! This... More

We are creatures of habit, if we find somewhere we like, we tend to stick with it. Often this is a bad thing as places don't stand up to repeated scrutiny. The food at Ananda has never been less than exceptional. The mixed kebab starter is a winner. The tandoori prawns are always amazing, cooked to perfection. I generally come... More

We were celebrating a significant birthday & did row the boat out slightly. Enjoyed relaxed pre dinner drinks at the bar. We had reserved a table for 4 last Saturday and also pre ordered the Lobster for 4 people so all we had to think about were the starters. The restaurant has subdued understated decor with a striking glass elephant... More

Don't be put off on arrival by the rather tired awning as when you enter the restaurant the decor is very nice. 8 of us dined at Ananda and everyone was absolutely delighted with their food which was excellent. It's all worth mentioning that the staff must be trained to a very high standard as they were first class, always... More

I reviewed this restaurant a few years ago and said it was the best Indian food in Ireland. This time went with family for my wife's birthday. The service was awful. Unfriendly, rude and unresponsive. I also felt like they just wanted to push food on us to up the bill and BTW they know how to charge. €14.50 for... More

We went there on Saturday last for the 9.30 sitting and were very impressed. Our friends had been there on 2 previous occasions and raved about it so we all decided to go. All of the starters were out of this world and the presentation of the dishes was fab. Indian food unlike any restaurant I've ever been. The main... More
