We asked Fraz to recommend some dishes for us to try and he put a fantastic meal together for us.The flavors were amazing, in particular we all loved the Tikka Masala but it was all fantastic!! They treated us very well and all the staff... More

We had a beautiful meal served by friendly staff and particularly Fraz who we enjoyed talking to. The flavours of the food are amazing and definitely the best Indian/ Pakistani meals we have ever had. Early bird menu great... More

I'm not sure I've ever heard a bad word said about the food in Kajjal! It's absolutely delicious and by far one of the best restaurants around. It's always essential to make reservations even if you fancy a quick bite on a Tuesday evening you cannot be guaranteed a table. Generally the service is okay but there are certainly a... More

Really very tasty curry amd varied menu. The quality really is far better than usual curry houses and the menu more diverse. The staff were very helpful and atmosphere good with groups from families to couples to parties. Discreet booths and large circular tables are good too. Book early.

From the moment you walk in your thinking this is going to be nice. I found the service was attentive but not in your face. The food is easily some of the nicest India/Pakistani food I have tasted. Defiantly made feel special and can't wait to get back there again

I've never been to an East Indian Restaurant since I incorrectly thought it was all strange, spicy food. Boy was I wrong. This place was recommended by the owner of the B&B we were staying at in Malahide and it was one of the best meals we had during our 10 days in Ireland. My wife and I usually split... More

After just landing at Dublin airport and getting to our hotel (Hilton near airport), we were relieved to hear there was a wonderful restaurant in the nearby and lovely town of Malahide. The restaurant was kind enough to take us even though we did not have a confirmed reservation (policy is that if you don't get a phone call after... More

Yes, its slightly more than your average cost of an Indian meal, however in this case you definitely get what you paid for. The food was exceptional, to the point where I asked to congratulate the chef in person, which is something that I have never done before.

Give it a try - you won't regret it, particularly if you are going for the early bird. Very child friendly - when we were there last there were 4 buggies in the house.

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
