Usually I stop in once a year for something spicy. The atmosphere is ok and the staff is friendly and you ask for spicy, you get spicy. Good for takeout too.

There was only one staff and his uniform stank and messy, the resto stink with bad odour. when i realise its not to our taste, me and my partner tried to leave but... More

The law of: 'badly presented restaurant equals disgusting food' still applies in Clifden. Our experience was so bad that we rang and alerted the local environmental health dept. No fresh vegetables, not even a fresh onion could be seen in the luminous, day-glo, artificially coloured sauce. No spices could be tasted in the bland sauce. The owner did not appear... More

Food from this restaurant is good but restaurant itself lacks atmosphere and could do with renovation. However, take-out is reasonably priced and delicious.

This was good but only average Indian food. I may be judging it more harshly because just days before had an incredible dinner at Everest in Westport, and this didn't measure up to that level.

A strange evening, in a busy, bustling town. Fairly empty restaurant, and an understanding of gluten free. The food was of decent/medium quality, and one or two other couples turned up ......but we seemed to wait well over a half hour with no attention at all, after finishing a main course ! Upon asking to see the desert menu, we... More

The food is ok but that's all. It's not good, it's just normal. The service is terrible. The waiter did not welcome us at the door, we chose a table and they were looking at us without coming to give the menus first. After a couple of time, they served the food. My knife was a bit dirty and for... More
