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.

Had to look for Waitress to be seated as we waiting too long at door. Had to ask waitess to be moved too close to door and too cold.. Turkey and Ham was re heated and like leather.. Veg was rubbery... Fish had so much...batter it looked like Twiggy with a fur coat. Service was fast, but had to look for waitress to pay. no comment made on my left overs which was plain to see, very little eating. No excuse for bad food, little people in Restaurant. should have guessed by this..More

I had the bacon and cabbage special - as good as I've had anywhere else. One friend had cod and chips which she loved. Two had mixed grill which they said was excellent. The staff were friendly and did their job well. Big portions. Definitely...don't need a starter. Great value for money.More

Not a genuine Indian place, Food was expensive compared to quality, There was no Chef, just bunch of people cooking and taking orders. Owner was rude when asked a simple question, Seemed like behavioural issues. Staff was very young and possibly exploited.

Amazing food. But you order it at 5.30 and when you call up an hour and a half later to find out where it is they tell you it will be with you in 20 minutes. Not worth the wait. You would be quicker to...go shops take your time picking out food going home and slow cooking it. Very disappointed will not be eating here again.More

Absolutely ridiculous customer service, staff are dog ignorant. They do not listen to orders and always manage to get an order wrong. I have given this restaurant a chance many times and they always seem to mess up and have no solution to their own...mistake. Food is not worth the price. Would not recommend.More

we recently visited the holy grail and found very high price hikes, gone are the daily specials for 11 euro and free tea or coffee, in is the new price of 17 euro and 3.50 for tea or coffee,,, why do we accept these rip...off increases in food suppliers in ireland, the riverside was always known to be expensive but on daily bar meals same as holy grail are now much cheaper, also other places we visit for food have not increased there prices or just 1 or 2 euro,, it's 2nd increase in a year but this time extreme to say the least, we are killing local eateries with high prices and low visitors as they cannot afford it, recently i spoke to a family who were visiting wexford area and asked where they could get decent food at affordable prices, i pointed them to holy grail and they said the ate there the day before and were totally shocked at the cost and they live in dublin known for extreme prices,, we now go else where after years of supporting holy grail and most of the friends we have who like to eat out do the same, if this continues it may even close,,, over pricing kills a business,,,More

Pleased to find this restaurant open today. While it felt odd with the reduced number of tables and social distancing we enjoyed our meals. As always the food was fine, plentiful and reasonably priced.

Snappy waitress, they seem to be more intrested in the customers arriving in to the premises to collect takeaways rather than dealing with customers in the restuaraunt, our table was situated directly beside the counter where 14 customers arrived to collect their takeaways in the...duration of our meal which was approximatly an hour, when we arrived we were not greeted and subsequently we approached a snappy waitress and we attempted to sit at a table which was made up for 5 people and were promptly told to sit at a table for 4, service was prompt, food was average and price was reasonable. i would recommend the food but unfortunatly the staff and also the fact the amount of takeaway customers coming and going is a huge distraction if you require a quite meal,More

Two of us visited for a quick bite. We ordered a king prawn curry and a chicken curry. We were met at the door and seated. Our order was taken promptly and politely. The food was served quite quickly and was absolutely delicious. We ate...every morsel and left. Everything was perfect for our visit and ticked all the boxes. Good quality very tasty food at a reasonable price, served promptly and efficiently in pleasant surroundings. What more could you ask for. Would recommend.More

The place has some really lovely and friendly staff but that's the only good thing I can say about this place. First our table was dirty, stains of milk on the table, dirty cutlery. Food was really mediocre to barely eatable , frozen chips and...quarter pounder was mostly cold (tasted like it was reheated in the microvawe) and by the size of it not even close to a quarter pounder, lasagna far from being home made. All food was really heavy on oil, which got me a really bad after taste. All in all if it wasn't for a very lovely staff this place would be one of the worst restaurants I have ever been in to.More
