Super friendly staff, restaurant was already starting to get busy at 6.30 on a Saturday so there was a nice buzz. Food was delicious, Starter, main, dessert and cocktail for approx. €50 a head so not a budget option but it still felt like good value.

The flavour of the crème brulee was brilliant... but the texture wasn't 100%. I don't think it was set enough, but I still finished every bit.

Music was a little unusual, we both thought it was a bit dancy, but it wasn't loud or distracting and it was still possible to have a conversation

Best Indian food I've ever had, in any country, in my life! Wonderful restaurant, great service and fantastic food. The chicken tikka masala was the most flavorful and unique, loved everything we had. Dessert and cocktails were excellent too

Definitely worth a visit for a truly excellent meal

Been here many times after work (work in Dublin City) - it's without doubt the best after work dinner if your into eastern/Indian food. I love but with kids have only been once for weekend meal - even better

The previous reviews that mention service being poor are correct. However, the food makes up for it. The chicken tikka masala was the best I've ever had and this is my go to dish. Everything else we had, jasmine rice, naan, a lamb dish, were also excellent as were the Old Fashioneds. Do make sure you make reservations though, they're very much recommended as the restaurant is small.
