The staff in Doolally is what makes it. They are so so friendly and so chatty - Really makes a difference being able to chat about the food and get their opinion and recommendations. Gorgeous place, very cool setting. Enjoyed every minute of our experience

Service was really bad. We waited almost a half hour before making our order, despite asking twice. Not accommodating or understanding when placing order either - not responsive to questions asked. I’ve heard nothing but good things about this place but overall, it was pretty disappointing considering the cost. Would have been better with better service. Just spoiled the mood and made us want to leave.

Food and ambiance is great, but the service was poor and slow. We did not feel looked after by the staff and no one acknowledged how long we had to wait. Also the music was a bit too high energy.

We had such a great time. The food was lovely, lots of tasty options for a veggie and the place had a great buzz. The staff were great and always seemed to be rushed off their feet. Only downfall is our table was half cleared after dinner and then they forgot about it so we spent another 30 mins or so with a pretty full table and kind of just wanted the plates gone. Nothing major and wouldn't stop me from going back!

We had an absolutely delicious experience at Doolally. We hAd onion bhajis, mussels and lamb patties to start, all divine, best bhajis I’ve had and the mussels are divine. Then for starter we had a masala and a korma, all beautiful but wow, the korma is out of this world, by far the best nicest korma I have ever ever had. Brownie for desert plus a few cocktails.
10/10 couldn’t fault it 👏🏻

I believe the restaurant manager thought it was ok to keep giving us instructions every 5 mins, we had little kids too with us for a friends and family Birthday celebration. Unfortunately the constant instructions as if we were uneducated spoiled the fun we were supposed to have … disappointed the way we were treated. The food and service were excellent, the floor manager could have understood and allowed us some leviance, unfortunately the little kids 4+ were made to sit alone and adults being made sit alone is understandable due t the Covid restrictions , else put it in bold no kids allowed we will not come over . Disappointed the way we were pushed for even though accommodating all the rules we were being forced upon …

Had been looking forward to dining here since before covid. Food was disappointing. ambience and atmosphere very pleasant. Onion bargies were very dry, chicken in the byrani was very dry. The dahl and aloo gobhi were excellent. Staff efficient, female staff friendly, Male staff didnt engage. Good covid protocols in place, lovely ladies wc.

This weekend, I have visited the restaurant twice.

At both times the food was excellent; however, the services were disappointing with the fact that on Saturday we have been rushed to the main course explicitly by the staff of restaurant. Seeing such request coming from staff, we left with surprise and adherence on it.

And on the next day too, we have noticed the disconnect between customer and service staff.

Overall experience was good; an unpleasant service experience left us with a memorable impression.

I would recommend the restaurant for the food.

I hope I would not see the same service experience on the next occasion.

Service was outstanding. Food very good though I'd have liked a bit spicier. The space is nice although a bit Press Up cookie cutter in design. Felt good to be back in a buzzy restaurant though.

Lovely place to eat! The decor is gorgeous and the food is wonderful and there's looooads served to you! The waiter we had was wonderful too. Only thing id say is it seemed like they were short staffed the night we were there, poor waiters were running around and it took some time to get service but Val was very kind and apologetic about it! Couldve been a once off tho, would highly recommend regardless!

Went there with my wife and 5 year old daughter, we all thoroughly enjoyed the taste of the food.... We tried atleast 10 items and I can vouch for all of them! We will definitely go there again and would recommend for others too. What could have been better is if the server could have been a bit more accessible to get things done fast....
