Good Indian Food

When I entered I was greeted warmly and assisted with menu and drinks. I was the only person in as the town was quiet. The restaurant closed whilst I was there. Food was excellent on the night but bit back overnight and the following day!

I had received rather mixed reports regarding this restaurant and based on my experience I would have to say this. The service was so poor the local girl was so unfriendly and unwelcoming followed by expensive overpriced bland food. I would have been better off going to the local supermarket and getting a ready meal.Would I go back again -... More

We ate here on our first night in Kinsale. Such a let down. I had the veggie korma and some veggie samosas to start. The samosas were rock hard! Like they had been cooked twice. Couldnt cut through them with my knife. The korma was 110% defrosted. It tasted like the sauce was watered down. No flavour whatsoever. I had... More

I quite like this place. They do some things particularly well compared to other restaurants. I'm not going to say its the greatest, but I do think its a nice place. I am very fussy too. You get great portions, I feel its reasonably priced. I love saag paneer, I feel there's is quite nice, I just think it needs... More

It was such a nice change of pace to have Indian cuisine instead of pub grub. Cobra really delivered on excellent food and service. We truly enjoyed our meal here from start to finish. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant and eat here again.

I ate a vegetable dish, my husband had chicken, both were excellent. The restaurant is very busy and for good reason the food is top notch.

The food is really good, I went there with my friend and my sister, we had korma with lamb, there were many spices in it, and superb! I really enjoyed eating it, I've never eaten korma that delicious. We all had the early bird menu, which was very cheap, we had korma, white rice and some coffee, it cost us... More

Visited for dinner and discovered that generic onion gravy is used as base for all curries. Biryani was old and tired. Freshly made roti was good. If you are travelling to Cork, eat at Lal Quila in Douglas Village. Indian food cooked by Pakistani chefs. Food cooked fresh to order. You will not be disappointed.

What a rip off!! Take away for 4 people came to €60! Food was average, and portion sizes could of been better for that price. The worst thing was the surly waitress who we dealt with, she was borderline rude. We asked her instead of the boiled rice/pileau that came with the meal could we get egg fried rice with... More
