A nice surprise, when I saw where it was located I expected middle of the road just like other restaurant in the Dundrum Town Centre area but this place is a step above. Food is delicious, fresh and very authentically Indian. Would definitely return and recommend it to people. My only reason for not giving it a 5 was the... More

I'm not a huge fan of Indian food but this is as good as it gets - fresh produce and an interesting take on flavour combinations. We had the tasting menu - way too much food - 3 menus would have covered 4 people and a bit pricey.

When our friends suggested to take us to an Indian Restaurant in Dublin, we were skeptical. The restaurant was full and it was a weekday! Fortunately, we had reservations. For starters, we had Kurkura Seekh Kebab (Wicklow lamb kebab, water chestnut & rocket pesto, aubergine fries, chilli & garlic Samundari Moti), Tandoori Jhinga (Tandoori jumbo prawns, carom, salted lime &...

This is one of the best restaurants I've ever been, in general. Presentation was excellent, service was excellent, very very tasty food, fusion, creative. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Great for romantic dates and other special nights. Need to book in advance.

We've waited a longtime to get a reservation in Ananda but were very disappointed all round when we eventually got there last night. Out of the 5 dishes we ordered 3 were a let down. No recommendations from us this time☹️️

We dined at the Ananda last Saturday night ( 201612th November ) where a party of four of us had a memorable evening. I will start by noticing something at the end as we were leaving. As we made our way towards the door we could see the kitchen through the glass screen. The kitchen crew were busy cleaning the... More

Myself and my partner ate here on a Friday night and the restaurant was extremely busy but we still receive great service and all the staff were friendly and helpful. I had the goats cheese tikki, chicken saag and raspberry sorbet. My partner had scallops, Kashmiri lamb rogan josh and dark chocolate dessert. Everything was so beautifully presented and tasted...

Came here with my family, mum who can't handle too much spice, cousin who's a vegetarian and granny who is very fussy and we all enjoyed this meal so much. The set menu is very affordable while the a-la-carte is a bit more pricey. There is a good choice of starters and mains which left no one unhappy with options.... More

This is a wonderful Indian restaurant in Dundrum town centre. The menu is exciting and the food does nothing t disappoint. The dessert presentation was impressive. Service was excellent. Pricey but worth it.
