I have been for many meals in Ananda over the past few years and always find it an excellent restaurant, whether I am on a table for two with my wife or with groups of friends or family. My last visit was on Friday night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food and wine are still good but there is a noticeable change in atmosphere. Like a lot of successful businesses in Ireland, their characters change. The thing that made them successful, their character and atmosphere, is gradually replaced by arrogance and unfriendliness. Ananda is very successful and has lost its sparkle. Get 'em in and get 'em out - fast - with lighter wallets to boot! I have therefore dropped it to four stars/blobs for this very reason. Contrary to what others have said, there other excellent Asian and Asia inspired restaurants in Dublin.
