Hands down the best Indian Restaurant in Dublin. Lamb chop starters are absolutely amazing as we're the tandor Prawns for main course. Family atmosphere and the owners always make us feel welcome. Have eaten at Ravis a number of times now and it is my first choice for Indian food in Dublin.

We really enjoyed our dinner here. The atmosphere is cozy, and the food is delicious. The staff made many good recommendations about what to order. Be advised that if you are vegetarian, all the vegetarian options are "side dishes," so you will need to order more than just one per person.

we generally take a delivery from them and it's quite good. Not much veg options though, but on the non-veg side their Laal Maas is quite good and very spicy.

Great authentic Indian food by a chef that believes in good quality ingredients "everyone works hard and deserves a great meal at the end of the day". The quality of the food and service reflect this ethos. If in Dublin definitely worth the journey out to Ballsbridge or if you are going to a rugby international, book a table just... More

Read the reviews so had high expectation. It was one hour and 5 min from arriving to getting food. Staff nice but simply disorganised. Had to ask for wine 3 times and got it after about 25 min. Food was good but wouldn't return based on the slow service.

I have been visiting Ravi's Kitchen since last two years.After disappointed by most of the so-called Indian restaurants in Dublin who lack flavours, I discovered ''Ravi Kitchen''. Well, recommended by my friend who comes from Malaysia and has little knack for Indian cuisine. I found Ravi's Kitchen scoring most the point to be an authentic Indian Restaurant. They are proactive,... More

I've had the same dish several times but most recently it was sooo very hot. Turns out the spices had all been freshly ground that morning. I'm not complaining, so wonderful to taste the depth of flavour and the freshness. And always such a great welcome.

I visit Dublin for business about once a year and it's become routine that me and a friend come and eat here. It's a quiet place midweek but great food always, slightly posh slant on the place and family staff are all very humble. Always on my list when visiting Dublin.

Not your typical Madras and Jalfrezi place this - but good flavorsome food never the less. Upstairs place with no easy access so be aware, and as you won't recognize any of the names except naan, veg sides and rice - ask the waiter for a spice warning as the hot dish I had was like napalm - which I'm...
