No doubt it's our favourite restaurant. Food is just amazing! And there's a good choice of starters and main courses. The average price for a starter is 6-8€, for the main course 22-25€ which is really not that much if you dine there every now and again and never regret a penny spent. This time we went for Saturday evening... More

We arrived a bit late (Ireland were demolishing New Zealand) - the very pleasant person who met at the entrance had no problem with the delay. Restaurant was very busy. Service and food was wonderful. If you do not like your food too spicy they cook it to taste. Flavours are great, atmosphere excellent and we were offered a drink... More

Having been to Kajal many times over the last few years the food has always been consistent. The staff and I must state not all have become some what unfriendly which is a shame.. to discuss what tables left you tip wise in ear shot of customers is a big NO to me and to also pick up the bill...

Slightly pricey but a lovely meal in nice surroundings. Plus there are good desserts, which isn't usual in South Asian restaurants!

This is a very expensive restaurant that serves very average food. The staff are so arrogant it's unbelievable. My server even questioned his own bill when he though it was incorrect even though it was prepared by his colleague in response to an issue that I had. I won't be going back

First visit here after a busy day at work with colleagues from US. I must admit I wasn't too pleased with their choice as I'm not a fan of spicy food in general. Wow did I change my mind?! Started with chilli scallops and although spicy they melted in my mouth. Cooked to perfection. Rest of the table shared some... More

We had a lovely date night here, eating from the early bird menu. The lamb was amazing and both of the mains we had were fantastic. The service was excellent and the atmosphere and price were perfect for our expectations.

Girly lunch. We were put in a booth. Waited ages for menus. Had to ask twice for our aperitif. Main was not as described by the waiter. We decided to skip dessert which totally confused the staff. Second and last visit I'm afraid despite so many people raving about it.

I must say that after having what's has been a very enjoyable lunch set menu...I would only say that when asked if you'd like popadoms you'd expected them to be on the house, but they weren't. We had lamb chops and the garlic prawns for starters, both totally delicious the prawns are quite hot, for mains we had the chicken... More

Beautiful Pakistani food, I have always liked the sister restaurant in Clontarf, Kinnara but now more excited and delighted to have such a lovely restaurant on my door step. Well worth a visit and can honestly say you will want to go back again and again.

Thank Sanu67
