Really tasty Indian food in the heart of Dublin

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... read 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

But the rest of the food was shocking. We ate here in October and all 4 of us were disgusted at the main dishes we were dished up, while the chicken dishes were watery but eatable the 2 lamb dishes were just bones and no amount of finger work would find meat on it, never again.

Very friendly staff and excellent quality made to order food! It looks like a takeaway from the outside and very basic inside but well worth going in if you like your curries!
