Lovely waiter, he was very knowledgeable about the menu. Gave us great advice about the daily specials. All dishes were very tasty and service was fast and efficient . Modern twist on Indian food. Dessert was chefs recomnend a pudding of rice with coconut and...baileys topped with a hard sugar , rich and creamy. The only issue I felt it was just a bit cool in the place we were sitting in the restaurant. Won't stop me going back again.More

So very disappointed to be honest... I love Indian cuisine but this was a big let down and way over priced...... Plus the veg was practically raw..... I think the chef should reconsider the way he runs his kitchen..... This place is a hit and...miss for sureMore

Ordered from Sanjays and got a delivery. Service was great and was quick. I love Indian food and normally get a vegetable korma. The korma was very watery and i am used to a nice thick sauce with fresh vegetables, I was unfortunately disappointed. Everything...else we ordered was fine.More

Sanjay's Kitchen is one of the best kept secrets in Birr. Sanjay's hospitality and food were beyond expectation. His spices were just the perfect balance of flavour and heat. Highly recommended.

What can one say only that if you are in around Birr over the summer and beyond do visit this fabulous restaurant. The culinary experience is amazing and the service and attention to detail are second to none. Coming back to Dublin after a very...long stint in the UK and having visited Brick Lane often over the years as well as eating at some of London’s premier Indian restaurants such as Benares and Trishna etc it is reassuring and fantastic that Birr has a great Indian restaurant. Go soon and see for yourselves. Well worth it. DavidMore

This is a restaurant worth traveling to the lovely town of Birr for. The food is absolutely delicious - both cooked to perfection with an abundance of flavour and served with flair and creativity. Sanjeet is a genius. The service was excellent and no effort...was spared to ensure that we had the ultimate dining experience. Thank you Sanjeet’s kitchen and well doneMore

We were in Birr for the night after touring the Tullamore Dew distillery, on our way to visit Birr Castle and Clonmacnoise, then head to Galway - and didn't want pub food. We read a review online that said Sanjay's was one of the best...Indian places in Ireland, which piqued our curiosity so we had to go and check it out. I haven't eaten at enough Indian places in Ireland to know if that is true - but it was definitely quite good compared to Indian food we've had in the U.S. We had one of their specials for an appetizer - an asparagus dish - which was unique and served in an original and attractive manner. The staff were friendly and courteous. In short, a pleasant surprise in a fairly small town off the beaten path for tourists.More

Last minute walk-in and they were happy to accommodate us. Great variety of food across the starters and mains, was very tough just to choose what we did, even the many vegetarian options looked mouthwatering. We settled on the Pork Chili Fry and Jumbo Prawns...were exquisite and the Samosa and Bahji nearly as good too. We could have happily eaten all these twice over. The Venison Soola was the highlight of the mains, it was sublime and perfectly flavoured. The Spanish Ribera del Duero was a great match. We will be back!More

We booked Sanjay’s for a family celebration. The food was truly excellent and the service was superb. We were eight in total and everyone was very happy with what they ordered (we each ordered something different so as to try as many different dishes as...possible). Special mention of chocolate samosas for dessert - they were surprisingly delicious!More

We had been in Birr during lockdown but because we were staying in a hotel we could never avail of takeout, when the restaurant was doing takeout only. With the lifting of restrictions we were delighted to dine in. The menu was varied and we...chose 2 different mains, I had a coriander and garlic naan and there was pilau rice also. For dessert we had a homemade chocolate samosa and their homemade kufi ice cream. Everything was 100% delicious and Sanjay himself came out to see if all was ok. The restaurant also played Indian music, which in my book adds a great atmosphere. There was nothing which I have to say against this wonderful restaurant, apart from the fact that I will be returning again very soon.More

Such a great find. The food was amazing, the staff were so lovely, we couldn’t recommend any more highly. The goats cheese samosas were a particular highlight and the staff made such an effort with our toddler to make his evening special. If back in...Birr, this is the first place we would consider for an evening meal!More

The poppadoms were stale when they came to the table, not a good idea, as we very nearly left as we feared it might be an indication of what was to come. We asked for them to be changed, and the new ones were warm,...fresh and tasty, Food was average. I'm a huge Indian food fan, so eat in Indian restuaruants quite a bit. There was some interesting options on the menu, we tried the Mango chicken, and various sides, the Dal was tasty but very runny, more like soup. All the sauces were quite watery. The bombay potatoes were fine, but lacked spice, and the Naan was doughy. Slightly disappointing, but enjoyable enough. It was definitely pricier than I though, it is more expensive than our favourite in Dublin, and several I would frequent around the country, not enough to deter us from ordering, but it was surprising for a smaller town. It was a lot better the last time I visited, I would be slow to return.More
