I travel across the city to go to this Indian ! Attentive and friendly staff, atmosphere is cosy and warm. Met at the door with a warm welcoming. I ordered the prawns for starter and the chicken tikka masala for a main. Simply delicious! Have yet to find an Indian that can beat it ! My favourite dish and always... More

This is our favourite restaurant in Dublin! Food is always delicious. Professional staff who are very diligent. May cost a few euro more than other Pakistani restaurants but well worth it for comfort,atmosphere and fantastic food!

I had heard marvellous things about Kinara. We decided to head in for a bite of the early bird over Christmas. It felt like sitting in someone's sitting room, which was gorgeous. The service was that of a seriously good restaurant. My starter was lovely. The crab claws (ordered form the a la carte) were really good. The mains however... More

We have eaten here most times when we visit Dublin. We always have an excellent meal, served by pleasant staff, in a very comfortable restaurant. Our favourite table is by the window.

We went as a family group of just four people on Thursday 22nd December. This was an early Christmas present for me from my adult children. I had been to Kinara just once before and at the time I had enjoyed the ceremony and the ritual of the delivery of the food. It had been a pleasant experience. We arrived... More

We gave Kinara a less than brilliant review earlier in the year so it's only fair that we give it a better review based on 2 subsequent visits. The service has improved to it's usual high standards. The food excellent as ever. However the toilets really need to be checked more often by staff. It's not that they are very... More

Everything about this place is excellent, from the welcome on arrival to the level of service, the professional and friendly manner of the staff. All this is before the food arrives. I have been coming here for over 10 years and each visit has been a memorable one. The menu is imaginative, good variety and options such as pre theatre,... More
