Having lived in India previously & being a total curry addict as well as having had 2 weeks of traditional Irish fare we were quite desperate for some curry so stopped off at Cobra. Large expansive menu featuring all the old favourites at OK prices but had the feeling the food was perhaps pre cooked in advance then just heated... More

If you are desperate for a curry , or vegetarian or both, go ahead and disperse the urge, but prepare yourself ,great service, ugly restaurant, nothing special food. easy location , no parking. They just dumb down all exotic food here in Ireland, till its beyond boring.

Walked in on a Monday night which was understandably quiet. Very attentive waiter. Had a fish starter which was slightly overcooked but still good. The mushrooms were very tasty. Being pescatarians we opted for the prawn jalfrezi and a potatoe dish for our main course accompanied by plain rice The prawns were plump and juicyand plentiful. The potatoes were very... More

Have had much better Indian meals in my home town. There was no ambience, glaring light, no attempt made to 'soften' the place with effective lighting etc. and whilst the waiter was nice, the place was very dead. Wine was not good. Food okay, Naan bread (Peshweri) was too sugary, and should have contained some spices and raisins but didn't.

The food was good but the restaurant lacked ambiance. The decor could be improved upon with linen napkins, table cloths and better quality tablewear . Our waiter was charming however and this was an important factor in our enjoyment of the meal. The take away business looked brisk!!!

Another friday night,another Vindaloo.A once in a lifetime experience but only because I will never return.To be fair the Pilau rice was lovely but the chicken/lamb/prawns all had a hastily defrosted texture and flavour.Sauces were lukewarm and I do a better butter chicken at home.Service was Casual,slow and apologetic and there is probably more atmosphere on the moon.euro70 for two...

We are English so we like a good curry having lived near Bradford for many years where the good curry houses are located. We really enjoyed our meal and the service was very good, would definitely go there again if in Kinsale

My wife and I went for a meal in early April 2013. It was apparently the first night of employment at the restaurant for a young waiter. Lets hope that the standard he set that night is one he always adheres too. Endlessly polite, very helpful and always attentive. His boss apologised to us a couple of times for no... More

I visited Cobra Tandoori with my family on Tuesday the 7th of May. The restaurant setup is plain and simple, but I like that for an Indian restaurant. The menu is quite extensive, price is reasonable, and the food is really good. I had a Lamb Vindaloo, and specifically asked for it hot, which I got. I like my food... More

Restaurant decor very tired but the young waiter was helpful. I ordered Spinach Paneer as a main which only contained 4 small cubes of paneer (cottage cheese). When I queried about the lack of cheese & could I have some more the chef NO, that's what you get, so I dread to think how much you would get in a... More
