Grest food

Bought a GrabOne voucher, food was so good, the naan bread was so tasty, the curry sauce was on point and the mint sause with the salad was really refreshing. Really great lunch.

We bought chicken shish meal offer for 2 from groupon, so only tried this. The food arrived about in 20 mins. The meal was ok, I cannot praise or criticise much, coz it was just ok. my husband had to use toilet, he said flush was not working there ! I would try somewhere else for dinner.

Best food ever i had in Dublin and, strongly recommend. If you are in Dublin you have to try Madina Desi Curry. Traditional restaurant food is excellent and the service is good, Five Stars.

I'm still at the restaurant but I just had to write this review as this is by far the best Indian food I have had in Dublin. And that's tough because I've tried so many places and was always disappointed (including one with a Michelin star). Don't be alarmed by the looks of the place, the food is just heaven... More

Arrived quite late, an hour before closing and was met with a very lovely manager who led us to upstairs seating. Unfortunately we were served by quite an irritated waiter, understandably so as it was quite late, however it wasn't nice being served like that. the food itself took a little over 20 minutes to arrive despite ordering the 'curry...

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
