Centrally located in Ballsbridge this is a relatively small but very endearing restaurant. Great menu choice with dishes to suit the less adventurous in terms of 'heat' but which also caters for those that like their chillies!

Don't tell anyone about this place, I don't want it to get jammed every night. Great food and super staff. We eat here regularly after matches in the RDS and it never disappoints.

Food here is gorgeous. I've visited a couple of times now & also had the takeout. Can recommend the prawns with cashew nuts! Portions are big and the service is really good too. Parking can be a bit of a nuisance on a weekend but that's to be expected.

Thank Amy J
