“Small but terrible”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Thought of getting away from busy city and came accross Waterford in our list haven't seen in Ireland to spend my birthday with my behalf of course. No regrets.
Trivia, did you know that Waterford City is the 3rd oldest city in Europe, 1st is Rome, 2nd is London (at least this is what the guy from museum told me). The city is small but lots of interesting to see and lots of things to do. One of which is to dine out.
Sitting in the heart of Merchant Quays is a "small but terrible" restaurant. We dine for lunch. At first, a bit hesitant because of the location and setup inside (not that I should be worry about) but looking at tripadvisor sticker at the door settle us down to try. Food was great! no doubt about it. The manager/chelf as well is very friendly and accommodating even informative how they did the dish which added more interest to taste them all (if I got time). Nothing to worry about spicy stuff coz that's what I looked for. They even added more extra hotness to my madras. Lovely! My wife got the tikka massal and again one of the she had.
Totally recommended folks!

“Thoroughly enjoyable”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

The food, the atmosphere, the staff, the price.......really there is nothing bad about this place. It ticks all the boxes. The food is authentic and bursting with flavor. The restaurant itself is bustling with life and the staff are so helpful. They can easily cater for large groups but booking is advisable as it is in-arguably one of the busiest Indian restaurants in the city. Try it you won't be disappointed.

“Lovely food”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Our family had lunch here on Christmas Eve. Indian food is not usually what I would go for but I have to say the food was beautiful and we will definitely return.
