“Yummy! ”
Reviewed October 24, 2013 via mobile

Lovely waitress who explained the dishes. Had samosa and dips and chickpea curry. Tasty! Coffee a little bitter. Did not have room for desert which sounded amazing.

“Excellent Excellent Excellent”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Fabulous tasty Indian food. Lovely waitress. Chef came to the table and checked on us and offered us to try a new dipping sauce that he had just made. A constant stream of happy customer. A small personal café setting. Will definitely go back when next in Cork.

“Authentic clean Indian Vegetarian”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Finally managed to get into Iyer's at lunchtime. Tiny café space so prepare to wait for a space. Food is absolutely authentic, prepared with a lot of attention. Newcomers could try a Thali, a serving dish with several depressions for various veg,. chutneys, sambar (spicy lentil soup), all mopped up with Dhosa (pancake).

Really enjoyed the flavours. Iyer is planning on opening on weekend evenings soon so watch the facebook page. Also a great place for lunch from 12 mon/fri..

“Best Indian food in the country.”
Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

It's more of a cafe vibe rather than a restaurant so be prepared to wait for a table as it is very small. On the plus side the wait is so worth it. The food here is amazing. We ordered a selection of dishes that were available that day and each one was delicious. It is a vegetarian menu but I know plenty of meat eaters who have been there and praised the food. I suppose the only small thing that let down the experience was the woman at the till wasn't very friendly but after a while another waitress came and she was very nice, warm and friendly.
The opening hours at the moment are a bit limited but it is open during the day and well worth a visit. We will be going back soon and bringing our friends.
