Ate here with friends over Christmas. You'd easily walk past it on the street especially since it seems to do mainly takeaway trade but give it a try inside, trust me! My friends tried different set menu options and I had the korma with vegetable fried rice. What value! We all tried each others dishes, they were superb and we... More

My husband and I were on our 3night holiday break away in Galway... and luckily we found this Indian Restaurant which made by husband say it brings him back to Kuwait where there are lots of good delicious Indian Restaurants (we were living there for 5years) so we know how an authentic Indian tastes like.. I would highly recommend and... More

I would have given 5 stars if they used proper chicken meat in their dishes and not mechanically recovered compressed chicken. That is where most ethnic restaurants fall down.

as a fan of indian food, I was very pleased to eat here. The staff was very friendly, the prices reasonable and the dish not to hot but very delicious. Unfortunately this restaurant opens only at 5 PM otherwise I would have come back more often at lunchtime.

I'm a bit of an Indian food snob, so if you're not, by all means enjoy! I thought the food was fine, but not awesome. It's nice for something different if that's what you're looking for.

Whether it is take-away or eat in - Tulsi is the Indian to eat in. It serves high quality food in a warm and traditional environment. Every single dish I have tried is amazing, most of all the chicken tikka supreme which is a classic for the Indian cuisine. The staff is friendly and very good at explaining the different... More

We've been ordering take-out food from Tulsi for over 10 years. We probably order only twice a year but it never fails to impress! Consistently good, generous portions that arrive tasting fresh and piping hot. Our family favourite is the 'Butter Chicken' dish with pilau rice. With the garlic or peshawari naan bread! Thank you Tulsi for another delicious meal.

We went in for the Sunday lunch buffet: only two other occupied tables, which should have warned us. Starters were nice shish kebab, ok chicken dish and old chewy onion bhaji. Lamb curry was indifferent veg curry quite nice and chicken korma watery and tasting mainly of butter. No sign of deserts. Price was €13.95 rather than €11.95 and staff... More

Located off the beaten track near the Augustinian Church, but worth the extra stroll to eat here. Huge menu. Staff very nice and friendly.
