I have visited this restaurant many times and although the décor is basic and the restaurant is not very big, it is excellent value for money and you can also bring your own wine which makes it very affordable. Also the food is excellent and as they do pizza and pasta dishes it makes it a nice place to go... More

This is the only restaurant in town and thankfully it is a well run operation with good food. Rathangan would be bleak(er) without it. I have been there many times both for eat in and take out. I have never been disappointed. Good food and decent people.

All food is well prepared,fresh and very tasty. Would recommend the garlic chilli chicken masala. They also run deals throughout the week which are good value for... More

I quite like the tikka masala here my kids get the pasta dishes but they are just sloped on to plates. There are great deals and you have to bring your own alcohol. If you forget don't worry there is an off licence across the road. The male staff are lovely. There is one lady and she is very stern... More

Cheap and cheerful for what it is, but food is punching far above it's weight considering the cost. Great for families on a budget for a cheap Indian meal out that's not lacking in quality. Excellent value on early bird menu before seven and special Sunday menu.

Really love this restaurant. The food is amazing, the service is excellent and it's great value. You can get your drinks from off licence across the street. Darchini is not fancy but doesn't pretend to be. I have eaten there many times and have always enjoyed. It's a real gem.

Been there a few times. Staff are friendly and helpful. Unfortunately your clothes smell of food afterwards. BYO is good as their is an off licence across the road. Portion sizes are good. Food is fine but just okay. Take away in place but unfortunately they leave your order out for you. Should be kept in oven until you collect.... More

Visiting family who live in Rathangan and we went for the early bird option @ €11 pp for 2 courses. Food is freshly cooked by the couple who own the restaurant and they are providing a wonderful service to Rathangan which lacks good restaurants. It's BYO so just get your drinks across the road in the friendly off licence and... More

To say this was the only place serving on a Saturday evening as most of the little town had stopped serving at 5pm, we were pleasantly filled with generous portions after a long drive and ferry to begin our family holiday. Starters were extremely quick and pleasantly tasteful despite their bright colourings from the spices. Main courses arrived quickly too... More
