“Someting different”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

The menu selectoon was amazing. We ordered some indien starters, but they were all deep fried. The main menu and dessert was delicious and comes very fast. The location was great with a flower entrance and a warm interieur.

“Wish it was better”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Our lunch here included 2 salads, and their “specials” which were a fish pie and roast lamb. The lamb was so dry that even the smear of gravy couldn't help. The fish pie was creamy and hot but bland. The quality of the lunch menu items caused us to wander if they were re-purposed from the night before. The saving point was brewed coffee, which was in contrast to the instant coffee we had been served at breakfast.

“Amazing food”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

The Indian food is amazing. I had a sampler platter and I couldn't stop eating. I'm a petite girl, but when food tastes as good as Modena's food, I can keep eating and eating! If you are ever near this restaurant in Portumna, please, please try it!!! The service is also great!
Thank you Modena

“Great outdoor area, tasty food, excellent service”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

This is a family-run business and it shows when it comes to service. It creates a homely atmosphere and you feel very comfortable from the moment you get in. The decor is very pleasant and nothing like your typical Indian restaurant. This restaurant serves not only Indian but also Irish/European dishes as it has two separate menus - we decided to go for salmon and steak and both were happy. The prices are reasonable and the portions are very big. Thier desserts are tasty and served with ice-cream.
The outdoor area is simply amazing and tranquil and we loved the fact that are little pooch was allowed to stay there while we dined and was even offered water by the staff.
