When you walk by this unassuming restaurant actually stop and ho in. The food is perfection. From the free appetizer of poppadums with onion chutney,mango chutney- both delicious and mint yoghurt or lime pickle this all gets the tastebuds going. We then had chicken pakora beautiful as well & onion bahjiwhich was nice also. Main we had lamb dopiaza and... More

I ate here with an Irish friend. I've eaten Indian food in London, India, Hong Kong, South Africa, Cook Islands, New Zealand, and the U.S., among other places. This was by far the poorest Indian food of any of my experiences! We tried the early bird special because it came with appetizers, naan (or a semblance of it), and chutneys.... More

Having been reared on curries and having lived in Birmingham uk I'm used to eating at some of the best Indian restaurants . I felt this restaurant was geared to the tourist market I'm sure the locals would eat curry elsewhere . The waiter was apathetic when we arrived . The menu choice I thought was very poor we had...

If you look fro a quite, affordable and relaxing dinner this is the place for you. The service is very professional and the food is high level. We really recommend this place if you fancy an Indian dinner,

We had high expectations of this Restaurant, given that we come from the South West of Scotland where Indian Cooking is an Art! We were not disappointed. This particular area of Dublin has a huge number of Indian, Spanish and Italian Restaurants, so there is plenty to choose from. The Pre Theatre Menu is served until 7.30pm, at which Point... More

I had a lovely starter and curry with rice and naan. The food was simply delicious and home made. The Naan bread is amazing here. Everything taste so fresh. The service was also good. The only thing that I noticed was that the Resturant was very old and could use an update. Anyway the food was excellent!

We are curry lovers and always have a degree of trepidation as we venture forth into a restaurant we haven't tried before. I am so glad we tried this place. We had noticed it earlier in the day and returned just after 7pm. When we walked in, my first instinct was to turn and run. It didn't look like an... More

Was fancying an Indian meal and found this place was close. After looking on trip advisor we thought we eould give it a try. Had early bird menu got more than enough food, found it clean and tidy, staff friendly, well worth a visit. Was very quiet at 5.00 but soon filled up.
