Eaten here in the past and it was pretty good then ( few years ago) BUT..... The establishment is only a very mediocre restaurant at best. Food was just OK, naan's are bulk buy stuff, mains are very average. Much better places in Dublin than this and I'm afraid we won't be back. Sorry.

Stumbled upon this place around 12:30 a.m. one night while in Dublin on biz/pleasure. The place was virtually empty, but I decided to sit down and order anyway. Lamb vindaloo and rice was all I wanted. It showed up at my table in a flash. Fiery hot, 'twas great! Reasonably priced as well. I was a litte reluctant at first... More

I know it was a Monday night,but it was well after 8pm and we were the only two people in the place. I got the Tandoori mixed grill which was superb,my wife got the same with the same thought. With a couple of drinks the bill came to 40+ euros!not too bad.

I used to work in the area and have eaten here many times. I am surprised by the bad reviews they have received as I have always had good experiences here. About a month ago my partner and I had friends staying with us from Germany. We all went for dinner one night and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal.

We hit up this place after visiting the temple bar area while visiting Dublin city centre. Had read online it is open late night until 4am, and with limited selection of restaurants/late night food options in the area, we stumbled upon it. BEWARE. The restaurant was empty and because a couple who has wayyyy too far gone and clearly had... More

I decided to try this place just for kicks, despite seeing not that great reviews here in trip advisor. I arrived just after 7 PM, and only one table of customers were present besides me. Dining room is spacious, little worn out but in reasonably good shape. Service was friendly and helpful, though a little warning of portion size would... More

The main draw for this above average take away standard Indian is the fact that it stays open until 4am. The food is totally fine while not exactly mind-blowing but the service was good; friendly and efficient and good humoured - a tough balancing act when the joint gets filled with drunk people after the bars and clubs close! I'll... More
