Food is excellent and the taste / spiciness can be adjusted to your taste, personal attention, prices are reasonable for Dublin. We are infrequent regulars.

If you want excellent momos and the finest onion bhajji I've ever tasted then Diwalis is one to try. Their sizzling prawn dish is amazing. Go for the 2 starters and share a main course. Peshwari lovely. I've always been surprised with the bill as excellent value. Wine list and beer list unexciting but with food and value like this,... More

Myself and my partner have been coming here since 2013 for his birthday dinners, and they have never disappointed. I myself have never been a huge fan of Indian cuisine, as I am not a big fan of curries or spicy food, but this restaurant has changed my mind for good. The menu they offer is a mix between Nepalese... More

What a fab restaurant in the heart of Dublin. Book in advance as this small but fantastic Nepalese restaurant is always packed. Beautiful food at excellent prices, served by friendly and helpful staff. My favourite is chicken shaslick but go and explore

Food was unusual and great and the service was excellent. We appreciated the chance to specify how spicy the food would be.

Not sure why this is so highly rated on TripAdvisor. The food is pretty mediocre: standard South Asian slop for the undiscriminating. The service and ambience were nothing special either. I'll not return.

Attracted by the exterior of the local, full of awards, we entered. The interior looks good with not very much light that gives the local an interesting atmosphere. We ordered 4 nepalese dishes, 1 beer, 2 coke and some water for a total of nearly 100 euros, that is a bit too much even if the quality was great. Dishes... More

Plenty of choice in the standard range of Indian dishes, but we chose from the Nepalese specials and were rewarded with some really delicious food. Rich, tasty, well balanced flavours - great meal. Staff were friendly and efficient which, given how busy it was, was a testament to their expertise and good nature. Great little place - recommended.

Myself and my partner dined in this restaurant last Friday night. Great atmosphere, very busy and great food. We had the Mo:Mo for starter to share, and they were amazing. It was quite a big portion so probably filled us up, but they were delicious. We also had the butter chicken and a chicken biryani. Everything was very fresh, and... More
