Came here a couple of times. Staff always great, food good enough, good atmosphere. A revamp would not make any harm, seems everything the same at least for the last 4 years except for the portions that seems are getting with less protein been served

I have tried many indian restaurants in Ireland this will have to be the best I've had. Food was outstanding. For starters we had assorted indian snacks which was excellent. For mains, we ordered Murg Makhani and Lamb Bhuna, both were very tasty, we also had onion and coriander naan and pilu rice, which were both very good. The food... More

I sought out this restaurant as I was in the mood for an Indian meal and it was within walking distance of the hotel and had good reviews. It had all the normal vegetarian choices and the food was fine. Staff were friendly and helpful. Nothing special and no problems.

One of the only few indian restaurants in city centre. Food is nice but a little on the expensive side. Really like the "karahi paneer" and "biriyani". Mango kulfi is also good Service is very good and staff very helpful and friendly.

The food was very good- vegetable curry was smallish but tasty. Lamb madras and balti both delicious. Prawn vindaloo particularly outstanding. Although it looks expensive, as rice etc is extra, the portions... More

The standard have certainly dropped in this once great restaurant. The food was bland and tasteless. Came from the kitchen to quickly to be made fresh. The meal lacked any substances and flavours. Remove the microwave and return to proper cooking. Very disappointed with
