Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Restaurant's Favourite
Reviewed 16 January 2021

We were passing through Ennis and were looking for an Indian restaurant when we found the Red Onion online. The restaurant was booked that night but the staff kindly accommodated us because it was early in the evening. The decor is beautiful and the staff...helpful and friendly. The 'problem' with this place was the wide choice on the menu. We started with a delicious and varied mixed platter for two and an aloo tikki. We followed with a jalfrezi, sheikh kebab and makhani butter chicken all freshly made to order and all delicious. The were accompanied by pilau rice and perfectly done coriander and garlic naan. The red wine was very reasonably priced at €5/glass. (One of us was driving so no bottles ordered). Overall a lovely restaurant and highly recommended. Looking forward to visiting when in Ennis in the future.More

This was a very special find. The food was delicious - one of us ordered Thai and the other Indian. Both were wonderful. Great butter lamb and pad thai with delcious rice choices and naan bread. The prices are very reasonable, as is a glass...of wine or beer. Really recommend this place!More

Better for Indian food than Thai. Was disappointed with my Red Thai curry. But my husbands jalfrezi was lovely. Staff were lovely. And it’s not overpriced. Next time will stick to the Indian food there.

Red onion is a fantastic addition to Ennis and their presentation of food whether eating in or for takeaway is to a very high standard. By ordering from the fabulous Anita, we know our order will be perfect as her customer service skills are top...notch and she is always interested to know how we enjoyed our meal. 10/10 for delicious authentic Indian and Thai curries and enjoyable ordering process headed up by Anita, she is a great asset!

Enjoyed their early bird special for a starter, a main, a side and a drink for €19.90. All the food was filled with flavour and very well presented as well as being very good value. Restaurant itself was immaculate and beautifully set up and the...service as well was wonderful, couldn't fault them! Highly highly recommend!More

Reading the other reviews, we decided that this was a friendly family place wih good food and went there. Au contraire, mes amis, au contraire! Friendly yes, excellent food yes, but this is a fine dining place with high ambitions. The food is utterly outstanding...and when I requested a masala chai for dessert, the chef made me one. Full marks!More

Found this restaurant as a result of a Trip Advisor ad (worth that investment Red Onion!). Came here with my family (kids included) for an evening meal. The restaurant itself is in a lovely location, and is beautiful, with the highlight being the MASSIVE fish...tank (that we were lucky enough to sit beside). Food is a little on the pricey side, however, when you experience the food, you won't feel so bad about the cost. A huge menu available for both Thai and Indian dishes, we tried both and were amazed at the quality and freshness - not to mention the portion sizes. Staff were helpful and patient and overall very friendly. Highly recommendedMore
