The Nicest Chicken Tikka Masala in Dublin

Best described as "cheap and cheerful", this is a nice spot on the north side of the city centre. It is not a fancy restaurant but the food is excellent and the service is good. Generous portions too.

I was wandering past here having never even heard of it before, when I saw the board outside with their lunch specials - €5.95 for a chicken biryani and a can of mineral (soda for American readers!), or €5.95 for a chicken tikka, naan bread and a can. I went for the biryani option and a very generous portion was... More

I have been meaning to try this restaurant for a while so got a groupon lunch deal for two. The service was very good but that is the only positive thing I can say. I had the butter chicken, I was asked if I wanted it spicy which I did so they put chilli flakes from a container into my... More

I was excited to find somewhere serving dosas in Dublin. The portions are generous and I enjoyed every bite. I came back later for a samosa Channa chaat, which I had many times in India. Unfortunately it was served very differently than I was used to... In a yogurt sauce, which isn't something for me. Will definitely go back but... More

Tucked away in the buzzing hub of Mary Street, near the shopping centre of Henry street, Madina is one of Dublin's hidden gems! Serving generous, flavourful portions of curry and rice. Service can be a bit hit and miss but the staff are warm and friendly so you'd forgive most things! The interior is warm but feels a little like... More

Lovely food!! The interior it is quite simple, but inviting. You can see your food being prepared. Enjoyed the Jalfrezi lamb. Very nice price-quality restaurant. ;)

Went to the Madina Desi for the first time on a long weekend in Dublin love Indian food and this restaurant was close to our hotel so thought we would give it a try. First impression was not too good but never judge a book by it's cover, well this time we should have. Upon entering, we were seated and... More

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 just to die... 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
