...but be aware that the service may not be what you would like it to be. Our waiter (very young, very new, and very uninformed about the menu) was fine- pleasant enough, and responded reasonably well to requests, but was also slow, easily confused (mixing up dishes, for example), and not very attentive.

But, we will go back, because the food was excellent- the best Pakistani food we have had in Ireland,

We especially liked the Badam Kishmish Nan and the Biriyani. The Tarka Dal was good (a little hotter than you might expect) and the Bhindi fries were a nice counterpoint. Shimla Murghi and Gosht Rogan were big hits, but again were hotter than expected. Overall, we found their heat scale is pretty high. If you are used to (for example) Mao, this is a level hotter (so if you go for medium at Mao, here you might want mild). That said, the flavors are really excellent.

Love this restaurant for lunch. Chili chicken starter and lamb main are particularly good on the lunch menu. Expensive but sharing platters is more than enough. Excellent quality. Tip: While front of house tables are the great don't take one at lunchtime. Manager spends the entire time on the phone confirming every evening reservation.

The selection of dishes on show at Kinara Kitchen is wider than the staples you'll find in a "standard" Indian restaurant. Everything tastes fresh and the breads are great. Kids love the korma and the biryani is on the spicy side.

Service is great and there's always a warm welcome. Go early or book at the weekend as it gets busy - a bit of scene later on.

Love it.

Great food and the waitress was very nice. However, we asked for a doggy bag and once at home we discovered the food of two people have been mixed together in one box! We ended up having in a box fish mixed with chicken.. completely different tastes and as result the food as been wasted as nobody wanted to eat it.
This fact left me very disappointed......
