What a fantastic family lunch! From the moment you arrive they make you welcome and are so attentive. The best service of any restaurant anywhere and I don't say that lightly. As for the food utterly amazing! I have been here before for dinner but their lunch is of the same high standard and exceptional value for such quality food.

Booked for table of five. I thought it would be great choice as I had heard good reviews about the food. It was just o.k. in every way, food was "nice", staff were "nice" but were not overly helpful or friendly restaurant itself was nothing special. Maybe I misunderstood when people I know recommended this restaurant and what they mean... More

Best Indian restaurant in Dublin, hands down. Wonderful food, service and ambiance. Flavours are delicious and always full of Asian customers, which is a great indication of quality. Definitely recommend the honey infused espresso martini!

We tried booking for table with 3 year old and 3 times we were refused booking at 7.30 pm since there was a kid in spite of booking 2 weeks in advance. Were only given option for 5.30 even during weekdays!!! Disappointing is a understatement!! Why are kids not allowed at 7.30?

Great Night for family birthday dinner. My vegan daughter and bday girl was delighted with the food and there was a good selection for her to choose from. The staff were lovely and the service was very good. I tasted all the dishes that arrived on the table and everything was deletions. Atmosphere was a little subdued on a quiet... More

I always review with regard to the prices charged. You could dine a la carte and end up with quite a big bill! Not great at all after such expectations. I love Indian and all ethnic foods and having been to India many times I do have a handle on good Indian food. In fact, I will be there in... More

Ananda is a bit expensive but worth the experience. We went for a lunch but were unaware that they don't serve a la carte at lunchtime so we ordered four different meals for four. To our surprise, every single dish turned out to be simply superb to add that the chef was kind enough to customize the dishes as per... More

We had a party of 6 at Ananda and the food was good, but the incredibly long wait for everything left us with the thought that we will not go back. Although our reservation was for 8:30, we were not seated until well after 9pm. While waiting for our table, we waited some more for our drinks that took a... More

What a lovely place. I've want to go to Ananda since it opened and finally got to go this week. Impressed from the moment we walked in the door. The decor is lovely and we were greeted with friendly staff. We had prawns and sheek kebab to start, duck and monk fish for mains and caramel panna cotta to finish,... More
