    I was very disappointed with the dinner at Doolaly. The ambience and the decor suggested it would be fab food and service but it wasn't. The vegetarian dishes we ordered (Paneer Butter and Lentils) had no taste. The service was bizarre - the dirty cutlery used for starters was put back on the table to be used for mains. I was shocked! They really need to invest in training their staff. I have had better Indian food and service in Dublin.

    Food was delicious but service from table staff was poor. We ordered wine and we’re forgotten about, we had to remind the waiter twice. Got our starters before we even had a drink. We were also missing cutlery on our table when the starters came out and had to ask for it so we could eat. Food was served very fast and was very tasty. Garlic Nan was very greasy with the butter they put on it. Portions were large and I took some home.

    This place was recommended by an Indian colleague as the best Indian place in town and boy it didn’t disappoint - only minus is you can only stay 2 hours which is a shame cause we would have loved to stay longer but felt rushed in finishing up

    The atmosphere in doolally was absolutely brilliant. We went for my boyfriend's birthday and had a really nice time. Perfect for a date as it's not too noisy but a great atmosphere. Leo looked after us and couldn't be nicer. The food was really lovely and so were the cocktails. Would definitely go back!

    The booking was for a table for 5 adults for 18.30 on a Tuesday evening. From the moment we arrived to our leaving the restaurant, we could not have been happier with the whole experience. The greeting, service, food and ambience was excellent. The guy looking after our table was super. The food was probably the best I have ever had. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Thanks

    Perfect for lunch. The chicken tikka burger was amazing. I judge lunch time food on whether you can actually work after it, and the food here is so healthy. Very reasonable in terms of price as well. Would defo come back again.

    Food was amazing! Especially their Mango Lassi and the Mangifera cocktail which were the stopstoppers last night! We had ordered Burrata Patta Chaat and Beetroot Shikampuri as starters which were fantastic! Their Garlic and Chive naan is to die for! The only thing that disappointed me a little was their Paneer Makhni and Mushroom Matar which were both just sweet and quite bland in terms of salt and spices, especially the paneer. There was no saving that one. I would say this is THE best indian restaurant in Dublin in terms of ambience! Nothing beats it in this category. Overall, will go again and maybe ask them to make the main course more desi style this time. That Paneer Makhni might just redeem itself then.

    Overall not a bad meal, service was patchy to start with but improved throughout the meal, one very attentive server - thank you. Was there early evening, the sun was bouncing off the buildings opposite making it impossible to see; suggest some retractable blinds. Other than that food was grand...

    Lovely ambience, it looks fab when you walk in. Starters were amazing 10/10 Main course was okayish, wouldn't call it a Michelin star - comparing to Ananda and Rasam or even Cinnamon Garden in Meath. Staff is lovely and accommodating, again 10/10 Disabled toilet/baby change needed cleaning Many Indian restaurants in and around Dublin, we chose this for the hype. Not impressed, wouldn't recommend.

    Food was quite good. Service was not, we went for a lunchtime sitting. The food took 45mins to come, not once did they apologise for the wait before or after the food arrived. Lunch service should be much quicker. Would not go back for lunch in a hurry.
