We had a family meal here this evening and I must say I found it first class. From the call to book a table till we left the restaurant everything was perfect. The food is excellent with a great choice and the staff are happy to explain what the different dishes contain. We enjoyed starter main course dessert and coffee and it was flawless. The staff were among the best I have ever encountered. A friend recommended this restaurant to me and I'm glad I visited it. I will be back.

Visited Ananda for the first time this evening. Tried their early bird menu. Beautiful food, wonderful service and great value for money. The place was extremely busy which is always a good sign! Would highly recommend.

We have been told about how good this place is since it opened its doors. Unfortunately we never got to sample what was described as wonderful cuisine by our our friends and by Dublin food critics. That changed last night and I feel I have wasted years of potentially enjoying what I would describe as one of the best Indian restaurants (if not the best) I have ever been to. The food was stunning, we ate on the early bird menu (€24 two course) which has the biggest choice of selections I have ever seen on an early bird menu. We all got different dishes and sampled each other's, all very good but the mixed seafood masala and the Wicklow lamb were the most popular. The wine was very nice and despite dining early to avail of the early bird (6pm Saturday) the restaurant was very busy and thus a very good atmosphere. No faults on service. I don't live in Dundrum, I live city centre but will be making plans to come back there soon.

Had a meal here last week with college mates. The place lived up to its reputation, though I had expected the food to be more spicy, which I like. I ordered the Chicken Vindaloo, as I like hot food.Whilst absolutely delicious, I had hoped for hotter. Still, I wouldn't deduct marks for what I got as the food was just delicious and very fragrant. The service is excellent and I will be back for the next special occasion.
