I have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent.., not too salty and always well presented. The staff are top class... spotlessly turned out and very accommodating offering helpful suggestions. Shall be returning many more times.

The manager put us at the end of their table which barely had enough room to squeeze by.... More

My first time here for an anniversary dinner and it was very impressive. Nice start as we greeted by the friendly doorman who took care of coats and umbrellas. Great atmosphere, especially for a mid-week night - I would recommend booking ahead in any case. The menu is pretty good, the portions definitely sufficient, and the quality excellent. Really tasty... More

To get things straight : This is the Best Pakistani Restaurant in Dublin when it comes to the Food. Used to go there at least twice a week , in the days & would splash over 100 bucks. Got into an argument with the manager over complementary papadums. Stormed out of the restaurants , haven't been there since. Shoaib sided... More

This was my first visit to Kinara Kitchen. I was taken by how busy and competitive Ranelagh is for restaurants - great choice and range of cuisines. The food here was nicely flavoured and portion sizes were good. Service was attentive. All in all a good value and pleasant location.

Fabulous curry. Setting and service as well as food were excellent. Visited in January 2015 for a romantic dinner and then again last weekend with our family and my husband's work colleague (August 2016). The milder curries were perfect for the children (adventurous eaters at aged 6 and 7, thank goodness) with bags of flavour and excellent spices. The tikka... More

A warm welcome, great service in a relaxed atmosphere. Clear advice on allergy and a very varied choice, some exquisite flavours and nicely presented. Small thoughtful touches make this restaurant stand out. Thoroughly enjoyed cocktails, food and setting.
