I had dinner there last week with a colleague while on a business trip in Dublin. The time for the early bird menu was long past, but they offered it to us anyway.

Delicious indian restaurant! Great atmosphere and great service. A bit pricey, but delicious (I am a fan of spicy food :) ). House wine is good, better than others in Dublin.

This was a great meal at a great price, with portions being tasty and plentiful. We split 3 main dishes among 4 people which was more than enough and we're able to linger comfortably. Word to the wise: the restaurant is in the heart of the tourist drinking area so be prepared to leave and be amongst club goers and... More

Of the 6 nights, we ate here 3 nights. It was the best Indian food we ate in Dublin. Service was good, quality was excellent- especially naan bread and chutneys.

Food isn't bad, but very pricey. The slow service ensured we would not return. Much better food and value can be found next door at Spice of India

We had the early bird menu and the food was so good. We had chicken bhuna which was wonderful. Service was very good with polite staff. Well worth a visit 😊

Busy at times but the food is full of flavour and quite reasonable for city center restaurant if you want to step out of the busy streets for some quiet relaxed break then this is a good choice
