I can't recommend this restaurant enough, authentic Indian cuisine of a very high standard, all four of us really enjoyed our dishes. The Chicken Bhuna was one of the best Ive ever had. Nice friendly staff providing a warm efficient service. The Restaurant is spotlessly clean. I will definitely return to this restaurant on my next visit to Kilkenny.

We chose to go with the the set menu which offered great value at €49 for a two course meal for two with a bottle of wine. The food was excellent with nice... More

The decor is impressive; dark, stylish and cosy. The early bird menu had good choice and so it was fairly unnecessary to dine a la... More
