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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I’ve eaten here a couple of times in recent weeks when in Dublin on business. The front of house and waiter is very attentive and efficient, my food was served quickly which isn’t always the case elsewhere when dining alone. I had a Rogan Josh...one evening and a Dhansak the other, the food was excellent and good value. It is a small restaurant and in a city which has so many average eating places this is a great spot for dinner.More

We found this little gem whilst exploring Dublin and we were highly impressed with everything. The food was very nice, the price was reasonable and our host was just the best. It has a very cosy feel inside and you will be rewarded with tale’s...from the very entertaining waiter.More

the food was pretty good but the service from owner and main waiter (only waiter ) very abrupt . an older couple came in with a printed and paid voucher and although they had booked for in text date they wouldn’t accept it for some...time ! in the end they relented bit this was after about 30 mins of the older couple searching the phone for the details etc . all customers were squashed on the same are and left the main part of the restaurant empty - great food but shocking customer serviceMore

First of all the restaurant space was small, owner wasn’t forthcoming about me having a small kid and made us sit on a small table near the door despite restaurant being almost empty. Coming to the food, it was terrible. Clearly one of the worst...I have had. The alu jeera was uncooked, dal was okay ish but the chilli chicken masala seemed full of chilli powder and nothing else. Overall disappointing experienceMore

Was assured that this was the best Indian restaurant in the area. It was poor. Food was served quickly but that was because we were the only people in there. My vindaloo was not hot, without spuds and the lamb was like eating a pair...of Timberlands. The popadoms were nice and fresh but sprite asking for all the condiments we were given mango chutney and mint sauce. No onion salad and no lime pickle. Maybe they were having a bad day but we won’t be going back. I did feed back to the manager but no discount offered.More

lovely food, starters (pakora, samosa, onion baji) were cruncy and crispy, served hot. Main courses were fab, great lamb korma and prawn biryaini. Staff very nice and kind. Green pass checked at the entry

Lovely little restaurant in the heart of Temple Bar. Not my normal territory but I was nearby. I can never resist an Indian meal (even if it is tempered to Western tastes). I was the only customer but got a nice welcome. I had the...lamb boti which was nice if a little chewy. The chicken jalfrezi, rice and naan were excellent. All washed down with Tiger beer. The staff chatting in the kitchen and others watching tv only added to the ambiance. Lovely service and great value, I wouldn’t hesitate to come backMore

Very disappointing; we were presented with a separate Groupon menu....small portions and 12 Euro charge for an extra small portion. Especially poor since we had already found a brilliant vegetarian buffet in Moore Street at a fraction of the price.
