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.

Really high quality food and good service. Booked in on Monday night-it was surprisingly busy, but speed of service was great. Would have given 5 stars, but got caught out with a charge for the poppadoms and dips we were offered prior to starter arriving....Kind of thought they would be complementary but suppose credit crunch and all that....More

When we arrived to this beautiful restaurant you are met in the foyer which is tastefully decorated with all of the well known people that has dined along the years in this restaurant. They had a hand sanitiser station set up as you made your...way upstairs to the dining area. Wowsers as we pulled open the door the first thing we noticed was the buzz. Although it was very very busy both with diners & their take away business it was exceptionally well managed. We never felt like " oh this is too packed nor where we left waiting for anything" . Everyone of the staff knew exactly what the other was doing. We were acknowledged straight away and seated. Drinks order was taken as was food order pretty much straight away. Food was out of this world, as I said in my title the flavours were dancing on my tongue. I went for King prawn & monk fish paella it was superb. My husband said his dish was very very good also. Sides were Garlic Nan Bread beautifully made. I made the mistake of not ordering some for myself. We skipped the sweet & ended our meal with a coffee. We are so lucky to have this award winning restaurant in our neighbouring town. The gentleman serving our table I think was the owner I congratulated him on his most recent award and asked him if he could open another restaurant. It was great to see this wonderful restaurant bursting at the seams with diners. Such a well run restaurant in what was a very busy Saturday evening. We will most definitely make it our business to come visit more often. Well done to each & everyone of the staff who always remembered to smile which was very nice to see. P. S If you are a visitor on holidays in Donegal you need to add this place to your itinerary you will not be disappointed. M&D Fox.More

I visited here with my mum from Belfast, the food was absolutely beautiful and so reasonably priced with generous portion sizes. Lots of options for both vegan/veggies and meat eaters. The staff were so friendly and helpful, and the decor/music was really lovely. You could...see how proud the owners and staff were to work there from the many framed awards and photos from the entrance up to the stairs to the restaurant. Would 100% recommend to anyone, and we will be back next time we visit.More

We have traveled extensively, and we knew Ireland is not the place to eat Indian Food. Boy were we wrong! There were four of us, including one who is a "meat and potatoes" guy. Four people were very happy with the menu and the food....We all ordered different menu items, so I can't highlight any one in particular. There's no need.

Visiting Donegal from California, we thought we knew what was what. This was the most delicious and perfectly cooked Indian food we've ever had. The staff was great; even the owner came to our table to check that everything was satisfactory. There is a sign...for the restaurant on a typical Irish building that doesn't prepare you for the amazing decor inside. The whole experience was first rate.More

Very disapointed with our experience here. We booked ahead, arrived on time, got our table. Waited 15minutes and no waiter to take our order so had to ask for someone. Waiter taking order was rude and rushed us.. pointing a pen at each of us...as we gave order. Starters were slammed down in front of us, on top of plates that were being used for poppadoms. For the mains we were told to hold onto our knives and forks from the starters and reuse them. Very surprised at how the staff treated everybody. Food was okay but the service really put a bad taste in our mouths. Definately NOT the best Indian in Ireland!!!More
