the food was completely off mark, great ambience, decent service but definitely not worth the price tag when it comes to service or food.
Ambience is a hit any given day!

Should not give bookings if they close kitchen in near minutes. We got booking at 9.30 and they closed the kitchen at 10. So we have to order everything together. Which is weird

Food was excellent. Service was absolutely dreadful. Our waiter was rude and disinterested, but that could of been excused if he didn’t consistently forget our drink orders or make errors, bringing over clearly flat drinks etc. And on top of that when we made a sight error with the bill can back to ensure that he got his full 12.5% . This was our second time experiencing poor service here. I doubt we will be back .

Always enjoy dining at Doollaly. My only compliant is the limited Menu for Lunch which has not been updated for some time now. I would love to explore new and innovative dishes in the future.

One of the only places serving authentic India flavours in the Dublin city centre. If you miss a Kingfisher pint, this is the place to go.

Food and atmosphere were gorgeous but our waiter wasn't very good and forgot glasses/menus/drinks on a few occasions. This meant we were sometimes waiting 20 minutes for a drink which isn't ideal when you're limited to the one hour 45 minute limit. However, the restaurant itself was lovely.

Our food was lovely but our waiter was not very patient or professional! Made us feel very on edge for the entire meal by lingering and not giving us time to look at the menu and order. Constant reminders of the covid-19 time limit restrictions. Overall quite disappointing and would make me hesitate to go back in the future.

Waiters were lovely and very kind, but evidently run off their feet and we received multiple apologies from them for this. Food sub-par. Much higher quality curries, biryani and starters in other high-quality Indian & Pakistani restaurants around Dublin.

We really enjoyed our meal. We had starters, mains and desserts with good strong coffee to finish. The food was very tasty with garlic and chive naan bread. Thank you and I hope to be back soon.

Love the food. Got the Paneer & Corn Saag and the Chicken Tikka on recommendation of the waitress. Really good choices both curries complimenting each other in terms of flavour. Tikka wasn’t overly sweet thankfully and had a nice spicy kick. Pilau rice beautiful. Nice red wine also

The food was great but the lady at the reception was super rude. Perhaps, she needs to be trained again in welcoming people with a smile.
After all isn’t a restaurant all about providing service ?
