“Nice food, not child friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014 via mobile

We ate here this week during a break in Kilkenny and the food was very tasty. It wasn't the most accommodating for little ones however. There was no children's menu and the waitress wasn't sure if we could get a half portion for our daughter. Overall it was lovely food however not sure we would return with young family.

“Probably the best Indian I've ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Wonderful food, both myself and my husband love Indian and both agreed this was outstanding.
He got lamb, I got chicken, both wonderfully tender. Naan bread to die for and super tasty rice. Would recommend without a doubt.
Service was friendly and efficient.

“Great value Indian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

We found this restaurant close to our accommodation while staying in Kilkenny. We had a lovely meal here. They serve traditional Indian curries, including vegetarian options, and they all come with a big basket of papadums and chutneys. The service was great and the prices very affordable.

“Great Meal”

Really enjoyed our meal, great ambience, food is high quality with high quality ingredients.
Not a great lover of over spicy food but they will spice the food to your requirement.

“Check the opening hours before arranging anything else!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014

We had an excellent late meal here last year during the Arts Festival, and planned to repeat it this year. However, having made the Festival event booking, we discovered that the restaurant has changed its opening hours from those published on their website and closes much earlier than stated on several days of the week - joining most other restaurants in Kilkenny, which obviously are not familiar with the concept of eating AFTER the theatre or concert. Check with the restaurant BEFORE assuming that it will be open late!
