Delicious!

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... read more

Well I was given a voucher and if not I would have never even thought of this lovely spot, from the front wasn't thinking would be that special. Open the door and completely different, staff all very friendly and shown to our table. Lunch menu looked small but offered great selection. Then come out the portions, boom my size as... More

I nearly said "Indian", but I do not want to cause unintended hurt to anyone, as the restaurant describes itself as "Pakistani and Eastern". I am, I suppose a semi-frequent visitor as I find myself in Malahide on a regular basis. It always seems to be busy - a good sign! We arrived unannounced and were invited to sit at... More

After reading the reviews here and considering the prices, I was expecting much better. The food was ok, of the kind that leaves you wanting to brush your teeth for a while thiugh... and the service good, but nothing really stood out. I wouldn't go back in a hurry.

I have never been to Pakistan, so this is interesting, a Pakistani restaurant. The food is similar to India which is normal as the two countries were once one. However there seems to be a greater range in the sauces and menu items than I am aware of in Indian food, there seems to be less emphasis on spice and... More

The food was delicious. The restaurant itself while lovely is very noisy and crowded. The food was definitely the main event.

Met up with friends for my birthday. Have been before and once again service and food delivered. I had the scallops to start which were perfect. Prawns and delicious curries all round with wine and garlic bread. The service was excellent, food delicious, lovely restaurant atmosphere, can't wait to visit again. 200 euros for the four of us, coffee and... More

Having not been to this restaurant in a few year we decided to go there for an early bird. The service was very fast and attentive when we arrived. Each course was better than the last. Packed with favour and spice. The service did slow down as the restaurant filled up but the food more than made up for this.... More

Lunch and earlybird specials are good value,usually a good variation of options,if you go for the specials or a la carte the food is very very good,not a "curryhouse"(not that I don`t like a good "curryhouse")hence the prices,well worth a visit

Hi visited Kajjal in Malahide recently with a family party of seven, booked for 6.30pm on a Saturday night. I have eaten here several times and as always was very impressed with the food. The choice is vast and this Restaurant differs a little from the average Indian as it also serves Pakistan Cuisine which means Beef Curry's etc are... More
