Amazing Indian. Try the kroma and tikka. Great staff and great value for the quality of food that you get. They also do a good set menu.

Kinara, based on the seafront in Clontarf, is a good quality Indian restaurant opened in 2001. I’ve no idea if its authentic as I’ve never been to India, however, compared to many Irish competitors it does the business. The restaurant is a sister to Kajjal in Malahide and one of the few faults I would have is that both restaurants... More

This was a real treat, food was simply excellent. Would highly recommend it to anyone. The meat was cooked perfectly and all of the food was well spiced and full of flavour.

I have been to Kinara many times and it never fails. The food is second to none, every morsel from the poppadoms to the rice, to the main courses are packed full of flavour and complement each dish. But what makes this restaurant is the service. It is a lesson in how to be attentive without being intrusive. Each member... More

The restaurant is located in Clontarf, a quiet area north of downtown Dublin. The restaurant is relatively small but quiet, good for conversation. The food is excellent and the service, discreet.

I love Kinara, the food is delicious but the best deal, in my opinion, is the early bird. For a main course, tip and a couple of glasses of wine, you're looking at about €45, about $60, which is a lot by US standards but average in Dublin. I think the early bird is three courses for €25. That said,... More

We took advantage of the great Sunday lunch offer which is a starter & main course with a glass of wine or a Bellini for €27 (or thereabouts). Good selection of starters & mains, very tasty & good quality food. Generous portions & fresh crispy popadoms served with a selection of chutneys before our starters. I can't fault Kinara, I've...
