Items I would recommend -... More

One of the best Indians in Dublin. Great food, similar to genuine Indian food. Nice place. It is expensive but usually worth it and always packed. Ask waiters for advice on ordering as they recommended some amazing dishes for us!

you can always rely on the same standard of service and food in Kajjal. It is my favourite restaurant in Malahide. I go time and time again. The early bird is the best value in Malahide
