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

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.
