Fantastic restaurant on the seafront on Clontarf, warm and very friendly service and the food is excellent! The waiting staff are professional and make you feel so welcome. The lamb chops are the best ever and they have a great value early bird!

It was a trek for us to get here so we were looking forward to it I have been to India many times so had hoped for some authentic dishes with a twist.

Both starters were excellent (scallops and monkfish). Well spiced and lots of fkavour the main courses were both dry ( chicken and beef). The beef was not tender and was more like stewing beef. The sauce for the nehari gosht was not spicey and lacked the complex flavours I would have exoected.

Desert was very good as was the cheesecake cocktail.

Wine selection ok. WATER WAS SCARCE just keave the jug on the table if you cannot keep them topped up.

Overall average. Perhaps I had it built up too much based on the reviews

We go to Kinara on a regular basis for the €20 special which is up until 4pm. I have yet to be disappointed. My favourite place to eat on the north side

Having been to Kinaras sister restaurant Kajjal in malahide many times, I was hoping Kinara would be as good. It was actually better. Mainly due to the service.
The service is excellent. We went on a v busy bank holiday Saturday and whilst we did have to wait for our table, we did so in the very nice green room over a drink and enjoyed some great live music.

When we got out table, it was really well positioned. Orders taken promptly and the food arrived shortly.

Food was excellent..fresh, vibrant and very tasty.

Overall a lovely evening and I will definitely be going back.
