Consistently good food at Vermilion. I had the Jodpuri Lamb Special (check out the pic) which had been marinated in a mild but flavoursome fennel, spiced yoghurt then blasted in a tandoor oven. I asked for my lamb to be pink and it was perfectly cooked. I’m also obsessed with the Garlic, Onion and Coriander naans which are the best... More

Great food and service was also excellent! A little pricey for a curry house in comparison to UK. Ali is a top man 😉

Fabulous as always. Lovely family meal to celebrate son's 18th. Kids (teenagers) especially loved the jumbo prawn masala & chicken tikka masala. We shared Mangalorean Fish Masala & Lamb Bhuna which were delicious. Thanks again to lovely staff who looked after us so well. Everything was perfect.

Well what can I say! The staff in vermilion are excellent just like the food!! The mixed platter to share is full of juicy Jinga prawns, tender talapia ( an Indian fish - I didn't know that ), pepper beef and tandoori chicken. Some wonderful mains also and if you are unsure what to order the staff will guide you.... More

Over the years we have had some lovely nights at Vermillion . We have attended some very special Jazz nights and Bollywood dance festivals and even a small wedding reception which was really beautiful! We also attended a friend's business launch there. It is the sort of venue that can facilitate many types of occasions as well as a romantic... More

Ate here 3 weeks ago with my boyfriend, who had bought me a Pigsback voucher for Christmas. The restaurant has a lovely ambiance and the staff are very welcoming. We were especially pleased when we saw the free starter/taster. It was a lovely touch. I ordered the chicken biryani and my boyfriend ordered the chicken tikka masala. Both meals arrived... More

I booked Vermilion a few weeks ago for the husband's birthday. Silly me! I miscounted the party but it wasn't a problem to increase the numbers at a day's notice. Four of us headed through Terenure on cautious feet, putting on a brave face against the cold, wind and rain. Up the stairs and into the warmth of the restaurant... More

I had a lovely meal with my mum last week, and we could not fault one single thing. The atmosphere was lovely, the service was great. We didn't wait long to have our meals brought to us. Portion sizes are perfect and the food is lovely. Nothing at all could be faulted. I will be returning soon. :)

Went here last night for the third time and it was just as amazing as before. The food is mouth watering absolutely fantastic and the service is good too. Out of 14 different Indian restaurants I have been to around Dublin it is by far one of the best.

We visited vermilion on a Friday night,all of the food we ordered was very nice,the atmosphere was lively with live music and the only complaint was near the end of the night the service got a little slow and we had to fix up the bill at the till on the way out,other than that it's all good!
