Staff and food are consistently good here. The quality of the meat is always high which is important to me. Have been eating here regularly for years and always enjoyed it. Seems a little different lately, dishes seem a bit changed, hopefully the food will maintain the previously high standards. Will be back.

For a very good price you get quality food that is absolutely delicious. One of my favourite Indian restaurants in Dublin by far for that reason. Service can be quite rude at times where as other times it is brilliant. Quiet atmosphere. All in all well worth the visit.

Excellent chicken dishes from starters to main meals. The wine selection is good, and service is excellent. Try the mint chocolate ice cream dessert!

Visited in November on a Monday night, and restaurant not packed out but a few people enjoying a meal. Food is good quality & very tasty, but affordable prices. Service was very attentive & staff are friendly plus will help with suggesting accompanying dishes and/or recommendations.

One of the best Indian meals I've ever had! We made it in just in time for the early bird menu - two courses for €20. The place was full and all of the food we saw looked delicious! Nothing to fault here - lovely meal, beautiful wine and two free Sambuca shots with the bill! I will be back!

We recently returned to Diwali after a long absence. It is now better than ever, but still very cramped. Small floor space, so not much personal space... the balance is the great food. No better Indian in the centre of Dublin.

Went with friends and was pleasantly surprised. The place was crowded and the tables tight, so expect close quarters with your neighbor. Friends enjoyed chicken tikka and chicken tikka masala. The GORKHALI was fantastic-the menu notes it is nepalese - it is a spicy yogurt/chilli/garlic based sauce and worth a deviation from the standard Indian fare. We did the garlic... More

I had an amazing dinner here with friends during the week. The staff were fabulous, really friendly and cheerful. The mo mo starter was a good as any I had in Nepal and the curry was fantastic! Highly recommend and will definitely be going back!

I have been here several times. Seriously good food and great value for money. It's lovely and clean and the staff are amazing. My boyfriend does not eat curry but I have him converted. Everything on the menu is good. Great value for money. The staff give you a free drink with the bill which is a lovely touch.
