Girly lunch. We were put in a booth. Waited ages for menus. Had to ask twice for our aperitif. Main was not as described by the waiter. We decided to skip dessert which totally confused the staff. Second and last visit I'm afraid despite so many people raving about it.

I must say that after having what's has been a very enjoyable lunch set menu...I would only say that when asked if you'd like popadoms you'd expected them to be on the house, but they weren't. We had lamb chops and the garlic prawns for starters, both totally delicious the prawns are quite hot, for mains we had the chicken... More

Beautiful Pakistani food, I have always liked the sister restaurant in Clontarf, Kinnara but now more excited and delighted to have such a lovely restaurant on my door step. Well worth a visit and can honestly say you will want to go back again and again.

We walked through Malahide village and found this restaurant for lunch. Ambience was appealing and the table settings to our taste. The waiter was welcoming and helpful and guided us through menu options. Entrees of soup and calamari was a great start and the pappadums delicious. The pinot noir from NZ was a perfect match. Mains of masala lamb rosht... More

I've been here a number of times with my wife and we had our Christmas party here and it has never disappointed. The last time I was here two of the Irish team were at the next table. The food and dining experience are definitely what has me coming back whenever we can get a babysitter.

We went here on a Tuesday evening and the customer service was amazing. The food was top dollar. I could have licked the plate clean. My only criticism is it is very expensive.

The main course of lamb gohst, fish curry and chicken makhani came with pilau rice and nan bread. Desserts were sticky toffee pudding, creme brulee and gulab juman all excellent. With... More

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
