    Our waitress Clodagh was so lovely, on the hall and definitely enhanced our experience! Food was amazing! The time in between courses was perfect for us as we don’t like to be rushed! 10/10 would be back again!

    Small quibble’s, service a bit slow, overheard another table talking about it also. Main course plates were cold and the naan bread was disappointing (2nd time here and no different) very flat and doughy, it’s a shame because the rest of the food is lovely

    Doolally lived up to all the expectations. The food was delicious, as an Indian it’s hard to find home food in a foreign country but last night’s dinner was perfect. Our server, Silas deserves a special mention because his humour made the whole experience better. Would definitely recommend the place and for dine in more than take out since the ambience makes it more special.

    Second time here and enjoyed it again. Great food and we were well looked after by Goran. Drinks orders do take a while to come and that’s something they need to improve, but overall a lovely place to have great Indian food.

    Food was delicious i had the prawn curry my husband had the lamb rogan josh, naan breads were good also. We had two bottles of peroni which were 6.40 which were a bit pricey. The restaurant is beautifullly decorated and reminded us of the Dishoom restaurants in London. overall a lovely time was had at Doolally.

    The food was not good at all, it was so sweet and tasteless. Felt like I ordered dessert for main course. The only good thing was the Naan bread that's all.

    The interior is amazing! I felt like I was transported to a New York loft, gorgeous soft lights and dark wood themed interior. We ordered a starter board, the burrata and two mains, some of the starters were lovely and delicious flavours but others were a bit underwhelming. Our burrata was a bit odd, the flavours on the plate clashed, I felt, with what is typically a subtle and dreamy cheese so for me that combination didn't work. The grilled lamb main was a bit tough but the butter chicken was superb. I'm usually obsessed with peshwari naan but didn't like Doolally's version of it all. We ordered dessert and waited 20mins before asking of everything was OK and the waiter told us they had run out of our choice. Maybe because we'd already paod the bill the waiter surprisingly didn't ask us another option but on double checking the bill, he hadn't charged us for it. Just disappointed he didnt mention it wasn't coming when we were paying so we wouldn't have sat there for another 25 mins. Overall a nice visit but have had much tastier food in Blackrock market.

    As good as always - service extremely friendly and humorous - food exceptional also. Great ambience though a little less busy than we have previously experienced but it was a wet Wednesday in the middle of January !! Devoured the tasting plate starter and should have probably had one each - one request.... I wish they had a Bloody Mary on the cocktail list !

    We came here for my birthday celebration ….The moment you step in the door the service is friendly & very welcoming. The waiters attend to all your needs & very knowledgable about the food they are serving. The decor has a fantastic quality vibe about it. We had a tasting plate starters which was absolutely delicious. The main courses were just as tasty too. Cannot recommend this contemporary Indian restaurant enough . Quality food . Quality service & very much quality price.
