Great lunch spot!

Myself and my mother called in for lunch on Saturday! It was absolutely delicious! The lunch menu provides a very reasonably priced choice. We both had lamb chops to start, I then had a lamb curry and mum had the chicken dish. Both were delicious and we were pleasantly full. A carafe of wine topped... read more

We have been here a few times being a local to Malahide and it doesn't matter if you order the early bird or the a la carte everything is tasty, the service is on point and they have an extensive wine list. Highly recommend

1st class food for the lovers of Indian cuisine. Fresh and tasty but on the pricey side. I will definitely be back.

Have been to Kajjal for many occassions in the past, this time was for a family occasion which included 6 of us (2 children). Nice ambience and attentive staff. Good range of choice on both food and wine menu. Food is undoubtedly tasty and fresh, but portion size was totally inadequate for family party, considering everything including rice is an... More

The food here is fantastic. Perfect texture, aroma and spice mixture. We had a party of four and ordered six entrees to share. The portions were good size and regrettably we could not finish all the food. They have a nice wine list and a good selection of cocktails as well.

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Malahide. The staff is friendly and the food is delicious! There is a good variation of food. If you don't like spicy food, just ask the waiter which meals aren't spicy and they'll be happy to help you out. This restaurant is very pricy but in my opinion it is well worth... More

This is one of my go to restaurants, I come here at least once every two visits to Malahide and so far Ive never been disapointed, the quality of the food is allways outstanding and the service spotless.

You know a restaurant is good when you can't stop thinking about the amazing food you ate and can't wait to go back! The lamb tikka is fantastic! Great setting, lovely staff, amazing food and a great atmosphere. The early bird is great value! €20 for three course. I can't recommend this restaurant enough.
