We are regular Indian food eaters and went to meet some others there for a meal last week. The service was good, but the food wasn't great for the price. The exterior is a bit dull but the sea views are great though.

I cook a lot of Indian food myself and it is fairly basic one pot cooking, albeit delicious cuisine. Kinara does this to an extremely high standard and I have eaten there on many occasions, most recently two weeks ago with friends. I had not eaten there for about two years. I had a lamb dish which was perfectly tender... More

Best Indian restuarant I've ever been to. Everything is perfect, great cocktails (ginger mojitos and espresso martini are amazing), gorgeous view, friendly service and delicious curries.

Hi, Its been a while since we visited this restaurant and what can I say, It just gets better and better. Had the best meal ever. The TaliWali Machali were delicious and we all know how often that type of dish can fail to impress, but not here, Pure perfection. Service, as usual, was outstanding. After our meal we retired...

We recently ate two meals at Kinara and both were fantastic. The early bird special is good value and offers various options. The service was excellent and we highly recommend this restaurant!

Kinara never fails to disappoint. Delicious meals, but can prove expensive if you don't avail of the early bird option. Ask for a window table as beautiful scenic views of Clontarf bay. Main meals beautifully presented in Denby style pots. Staff attentive and helpful.Real pity KInara Clontarf does not have a take away service though...
