Popped in for my usual 'Billy-no-mates' meal. Restaurant was clean and well staffed and even at 1845 was reasonably busy, suggest larger parties should book in. Bit on the pricey side (33 euro's) but food was very good. probably best curry I've had for a while, and if you check my other reviews you'll know I am an addict. I... More

A big fan of Nepalese cuisine this is the third such restaurant I've visited in Dublin. After having already booked ahead we were promptly shown to our table and presented with menus etc. We opted for the meat platter for two for starters which arrived on a sizzling hot plate. It was a very tasty selection but a few less... More

The food at Diwali is so good that you will come back. The waiters are so accommodating, that they even brought us a B&B after dinner drink. We had such delicious food that I would go back every week if I lived in Dublin.

First time visit here with a group of friends at the weekend. The food is nothing short of fantastic - brilliant flavours etc. The staff are excellent too, always helpful and attentive. My only slight gripe was that there was a LONG wait for the starters and a LONG wait for the mains. But honestly, it didn't matter as the... More

Have been more recently than this but can't remember exactly when. The early bird is brilliant value and I only ever leave with a great feeling. The service is brilliant (it is very easy to get attention of staff and they don't crowd you when you don't want them). The food is fantastic!

Very good service. Some of the best Indian food I have eaten, and portion sizes are huge (one rice is enough for 2 people). I recommend the sharing starter, and for main, everything else on the menu ! they also offered a drink on the house before we left. not the best value Indian restaurant you will find, but its...

The place does not boast of great ambiance but compensates for it in the food being served. The location is quite central and easy to find. The veg pakhora and onion bhajji are quite a delicacy. Good choice for vegetarians as well. The staff are friendly and provide good service. You may be asked to if you wish to add... More

Both the food and the service were top drawer on our visit to Diwali. The chicken tandoori for main and onion bhaji for starter were absolutely gorgeous and very generous sized portions. Maybe a tiny bit expensive but considering how great the service was this can be forgiven. We even requested to take the rest of the uneaten food (such... More
