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

This lively restaurant/bar serves up really delicious and flavoursome Pakistani cuisine. Good-sized portions, rich flavours and textures. We visit Dublin every year and this appears to have crept onto our must-do list every time!

My wife and I like all sorts of Asian food, with a special preference for the Indian/Pakistani cuisine and Thai food. So having heard excellent comments about Kajjal, we had to try it out. After 2 missed attempts due to illness, we finally made it last Saturday and it was definitely worth waiting for it. Efficient and friendly welcome and... More

I have to admit i was very taken back to see Kajjal at the number one spot in Malahide. Such big competition in Malahide and for myself at my partner who experience Kajjal on separate occasions we both were left a little disappointed. Now in saying this don't get me wrong the restaurant is clean well maintain and set up... More

We dined here expecting it not to match the reviews it received on Tripadvisor. Boy were we blown away. Outstanding from start to finish. Fantastic popadoms. Tikka masala starter with mint sauce was out of this world. The shrimp and lamb main dishes we had were beautifully spiced. Naan was wonderfully fresh and tastey. The bill came to 50 euros... More

We enjoyed a really excellent early bird menu here on a wed evening. Three courses plus usual poppadoms etc for 21.95. Early bird until 7pm. Approx four options per course except for dessert which is rice pudding or (very nice) ice cream. Superb tempura prawns as starter. Really nice atmosphere in very comfortable surroundings.
