Cobra Tandoori is an excellent Indian restaurant with a wide selection of food. You can sit in or take away, the second is my fave option living really close. really good value for money and they always give me a free soft drink with take away food. Absolutely recommended!

Hi Folks, If you find the review of any help at all, please click the helpful green tab at the end of the review. Thank you. Four of us entered this empty restaurant, at my request. After a few days in Ireland, I was looking for something different and thought it worth the risk ? My Father and I had... More

I'm sure if you look at my reviews, I love Indian !!!! This is a very nice food emporium in Kinsale, decor a little dated otherwise the food is very good! We have eaten here a few times and will be back again! Bet that tells you my thoughts?

Kinsale. Gourmet capital of Ireland. A town with many superb eateries serving imaginative, tasty and beautifully presented food cooked with passion and skill amongst which this establishment stands out like a puss-filled boil on the fairest skin. As we waited for the menus to arrive I remarked to my partner how tired the decor looked; paint and wood stain slapped... More

This restaurant was recommended by Rick Steeves Ireland 2016 - I think it's resting on its laurels. We eat lots of south asian food in Canada - this was well below what we are used to. Edible, just boring.

Some of the best Indian food that I have ever had. You can taste the freshness of the meat and produce in every bite. We were shocked to see the low ratings as this place is awesome! We have been in Ireland for over a week and wanted some variety in flavors and this definitely did the trick. Highly recommend!

We're Indian and have been thoroughly spoiled by the numerous high-quality Indian dining options in the San Francisco Bay Area. We were craving Indian good in Kinsale and decided to try the Cobra Tandoori. The first night we walked in, a gentleman who I think is the proprietor told us that he could not seat a party of seven. This... More

Stopped in after a long travel day and we were not disappointed. The food was authentic Indian and was delicious. All of the dishes for our party of three were served quickly. They even bring out warm plates from the back just prior to serving the food; great idea! Dine in or take away.

We went here because we love Indian food and were in for it after all pub and Italian food. Despite some negative reviews we went as we learned over time that really poor or bad Indian restaurants are rare. The place is OK. A typical Indian restaurant; sometimes old Indian style, sometimes modern, sometimes light or dark. This place is... More

As soon as we walked in the door and found three grumpy looking staff members staring at us without even greeting us, I knew this wouldn't be good. It wasn't. Despite its presence on the window, the early bird menu wasn't presented to us. I had to ask for it and even then the time was checked to make sure... More
