- Dishes were not well done, were just overloaded with Spices. - The palak (spinach) in palak paneer was not blended the way it should be. It did not mix along with the paneer to call it a dish. - Prawn dishes are extremely overpriced for the 3 pieces of medium sized prawns you receive in quite a spicy sauce.... More

Kinvara always rates very highly with me so to be disappointed is unusual. Today the premises was cold and despite chsnging table we still had to put on our costs. Kinvara- it may be the end of sun lunch time but be aware of the temp of your premises.

Took my wife for her Birthday Dinner here last week and it was a night to remember, the food was heaven, we had the table with sea-view and the service was the best I have ever had in a restaurant, Rajib was taking care of us that evening and made sure we had the best time by looking after us...

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!
