Ananda provides a superb dining experience. My husband and I agreed that this was the best Indian food we had ever had. It's a little out of the way in a shopping mall, but from the Camden St area in which our hotel was located it was not an expensive cab ride. When we opened the door, we expected to... More

I've eaten here many times and always come away happy and satisfied! The ambiance, service and food and always top notch! Early bird is good value and the menu seems to change a bit which is nice and keeps things interesting! Poppadoms when you are seated is a nice touch!

There didn't seem to be a great choice from the menu but our waiter was able to cater for all our needs. There wasn't a kids option on the menu but our waiter served a delicious Tikka Masala for my kids who raved about how good it tasted. My wife and I both had chicken dishes, both quite spicy but...

While a little out of the way (take the Luas from St. Stephen's Green to Dundrum and walk up the hill to the mall), this is an outstanding gem of an Indian restaurant. It has a modern authentic decor, well-spaced tables, and excellent, helpful and attentive staff. The menu is creative, and not the usual sharing plates (although you'll want... More

I have spent a good many years sampling Indian restaurants all over the place. This is by far the best I have tried in Dublin and very likely one of the best ever. We went for the tasting menu with wine and that was a very good idea. The food is varied and exciting, the wine pairing perfect and surprising.... More

This is in my opinion the best Indian in Dublin. It's located on the top floor of Dundrum shopping centre. Very nice decor but the food is fantastic.

Ananda offers tasty Indian food, and a nice break if you are shopping at the busy shopping centre next door. The food is great, with many dishes featuring a bit of a modern twist. The staff were incredibly friendly as well. If you are looking for Indian in Dublin, I highly recommend this place.

Ananda is by far the best Indian restaurant we have had here in Ireland. Right from the politeness of the staff to the consistency in the flavours of the dishes, it has always been a delightful experience. Having visited multiple times with family, friends and work colleagues it has never ceased to amaze. We were there last Saturday and the... More

After a days shopping, we visited here at short notice and luckily got a table without a reservation. This is my 3rd time to eat here over a few years. It's why I occasionally go shopping in Dundrum. The food is just absolutely stunning. 5 of us were all blown away. Great menu offerings and choices on each course to... More
