Living in London I've had a great choice of this kind of cuisine for years so it's great to see quality pakistani/ eastern food in north dublin. After years of friends and family recommending this place I finally got to go recently and it lived up to all the rave reviews. Great food and service. I won't single out any... More

Best restaurant in malahide. Have been to kajjal many times and it never fails to impress. The food is so unbelievably tasty and the decor and ambiance is perfect. Every meal in kajjal feels like a special treat!! Book in advance as they are always busy. Well done kajjal!

I have been to kajjal twice now and it's the best Indian food I've eaten. There's a lovely relaxing atmosphere, the staff are really friendly and the food is amazing. The tandoori king prawns to start are delicious :) I would highly recommend this restaurant.

By far, the best indian food I've eaten ( other than my grandmother's cooking). I'm very critical of indian food that is too heavy on oils/ fats and low on the amount of protein they provide. This restaurant's food was not greasy in anyway and no after affects. We ordered a beef dish and a chicken dish along with seafood... More

Good food, good service great atmosphere. Not a huge range on the menu but this is countered by the fact that everything on it is so good. Always busy with a great atmosphere. Dislikes - can't always get a able without a reservation, but can understand why.

We dined recently in Kajjal, Malahide and were served by possibly the most efficient (and pleasant) waitresses I've ever met. When we arrived the restaurant was busy with a nice mix of groups some of whom were loud but in no way boisterous. We were in a group of 'couples' tables with the larger groups sited on the fringes.

On a recent visit to Malahide, I had Nautilus and Chez Sara (the number 2 and 3 ) in my sights but, unfortunately, even on a sunny Friday afternoon, neither was open. So, we opted for the number 1 listed restaurant in this north county Dublin seaside town. Kajjal cuisine is described as Indian and Pakistani, although, judging by the... More

Coming from Boston, it is sometimes hard to find *really* good Indian food. This was excellent. We tried a few different dishes and everything met my expectations. It's not a large restaurant, so I would expect that reservations are needed on busy nights. Food was flavorful and the portions were just right. We got appetizers, nan and a main dish... More
