Loved it, very tasty Curry

Every once in a while I do love Indian food, but sometime you can get disapointed. Not at the Madina! I was looking for something tasty and spicy. My wife is not crazy about spices, but the good news is that she could choose accordingly. In any case, the food was really good, the Naan bread was... read more

We had lunch in Madina, soon after St Patrick's parade was over. You can imagine how busy all the places were. Even though the restaurant was packed, the staff was very helpfull and placed us at the first table that was released. Just had to wait 5-10 mins. No need to say more about the prompt service and the delicious... More

My comments here are in reference to the Takeaway food quality and service as I did not eat in the restaurant. As any Indian vegetarian will tell you, outside of India it is almost impossible to get good vegetarian food. Notable exceptions is the Woodlands franchise in London, USA etc (http://www.woodlandsrestaurant.co.uk/piccadilly.html). Finally here in Dublin we now have a takeaway... More

Firstly let me say - I really enjoy flavoursome spicy food - and I do mean flavoursome - NOT just hot (as anyone can do that) Dublin is a gorgeous city - but the typical fayre, can be a bit bland. Finding the restaurant takes you off the beaten track. Over O'Connell bridge walk towards the spire. Turn left at... More

Top class dosa's and the other dishes were also good as were the different Indian breads we tried - the service is excellent but not smarmy like a lot of other places - it has distinct Indian style to it and lots of Indians eat there which I think is a good sign. A note for the Nepali waitress -... More

I was in Dublin alone on business and having been to Madina a few years previous and very much enjoyed the food, I thought it would be a safe option! I arrived at Madina at about 7.15pm asking for a table for one. The manager/owner at the counter was very friendly and called a young female waitress over to sort... More

I asked for a dish there, and 90% was composed by rice. And only 10% by chicken. From my point of view it is not worth to go to the place. I probably would not come back there again.

I went to Madina with my friends who were starving for Indian food from long. The food quality and taste was mediocre, it wasn't great though. The quality of service was fine, as one of my friend found a waitress from her place in India. For the atmosphere, I'd say that there was a bit smoke, probably due to faulty... More
