I can't sing the praises of this restaurant enough! It's my favourite restaurant ever. I use every excuse to go back as often as I can. The food is second to none and the menu is always exciting and unique. Don't expect to see the usual Rogan Josh on it. This is a very different kind of Indian restaurant. At... More

Found this restaurant through TripAdvisor when we had some time to spare in Dundrum area last week. Was a little worried as we searched for its entrance while passing all the usual "quick turnaround" shopping center eateries but the search was worth it. On entering we were greeted by friendly staff who showed us to a table and took our... More

Great food, great service. Beautiful food presented in a variation of traditional Indian style. Great flavours and while not cheap, it is not going to break the bank. Looking forward to next visit.

Have been wanting to visit for a long time and was not disappointed. Came here looking to get the early bird (25ish euro) however it looks like this has been replaced by a 30 euro christmas menu for December which was fine, no big deal, i was excited to come here regardless. I did however realise at the end of... More

Few friends went to Ananda on December 8th, we had dined in Ananda previously. The Mixed platter starter was superb. The Naan bread and main dish (SHAKAHARI THAALI VEGETARIAN) was delicious. My friends had Jinga Neel Giri, they were delighted with it. Overall, it was a memorable experience. We will certainly visit again.

Very disappointing dinner in Ananda Fri December 9th. 2 starters of tandoori jingha prawns were good. Main lamb biryani was ok-meat pieces too large and dish a bit dry. I ordered Tandoori Chicken, a dish I have had many times at Ananda. It was awful! The chicken pieces were too large and presentation lacked finesse. This dish usually consists of... More

We go to this restaurant anytime we are in Dublin and it never fails to impress . We have been to India for several years , and live near Bradford UK,and have never come across better Indian food. The food is absolutely delicious and the range of choice is astonishing. The early bird menu is a steal at 2 courses... More

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
