Hi visited Kajjal in Malahide recently with a family party of seven, booked for 6.30pm on a Saturday night. I have eaten here several times and as always was very impressed with the food. The choice is vast and this Restaurant differs a little from the average Indian as it also serves Pakistan Cuisine which means Beef Curry's etc are... More

Friday lunchtime, we were a table of 3. We received menus promptly. Orders taken fairly quickly. All dishes very tasty and service up to this point ok. Once main courses were served, it was up to us the customer to try and attract the waiters attention to order desserts, coffees and more wine. Lunch was pleasant but customer awareness needs...

It looks nice and it’s a bit different but no. 1 in Malahide, no way. Food was very average. We had two different mains both with chicken but the chicken was overcooked and a bit dry.

This is a “more expensive than your average” Indian restaurant, but for us, it’s worth that bit more. You’re always greeted with a warm welcome, the tables are a decent size and not too close to neighbouring tables, and a personal thing I like in restaurants – they have white tablecloths. The wine list is very good, and the menu... More
