Great Indian and Nepalese cuisine

This was my second visit to Diwali and the food was as good as I remembered from my last visit to Dublin. In addition to the wonderful food, the management and service are exceptional. Very nice people and great food.

We ventured to the Diwali on the first of our three nights in Dublin and ended up going every evening! The food is excellent, on a par with those we experience when in England, which is a very high compliment indeed!
