Was recommended by a colleague during a business trip to Dublin. So worth making the effort to get to Malahide to enjoy some very good and authentic Indian food.

As we were staying just metres away from this restaurant, it was obvious we would try this place. Each time we passed the smell of food was very tempting and the people sitting outside looked to be enjoying themselves. So try we did, twice in fact, each time taking advantage of the early bird menu. The staff are so friendly... More

This restaurant ticks all the boxes. Its modern with excellent service, great location and delicious food. We have visited many times and it has become one of my favourite restaurants to visit. The food is very tasty and well presented. Service is always excellent with a warm welcome. Prices are good. Booking is recommended

Staff were warm and welcoming, catered for my sister who is coeliac, offered the early bird even though we arrived just as it was ending. Top notch food, and reasonably priced. The early bird was 21.95 for 3 courses.

A dozen of my colleagues and I came here for a very enjoyable meal, One colleague did notice that her meal was not as spicy or hot as she expected so just ask for your preference. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We have been here many times. Always amazing for a special occasion. There is nothing to fault this place. Food is mouth watering may I recommend the protein plate which would prob do two people in fairness. Beautiful wines and cocktails. Staff are friendly. Book early as always busy !!!

We decided to try Kajjal on a recent visit to Malahide. We didn't have a booking but the Manager kindly fit us in. We were just having a quick bite to eat! It's a very busy place, so I'd recommend booking! We had the early bird menu and the food was really very special. The Jalfrazzi was quite hot though... More

I go I this restaurant at least once a month simce it opened and have never once been dissapointed. It's by far the nicest ethnic restaurant I've ever eaten in. Everything on the menu is divine but the tandoori khas and the makanwhala murghi are my favourites. Staff are excellent efficient service and very friendly. Cocktails are really good too.

Enjoyed a lovely meal in Kajjal this evening. Didn't book as it was a Monday but it was so busy there was only room outside. It was a lovely evening and the outdoor area is heated. The food was very tasty. Would definitely recommend it and will come again.
