I've been a customer of this Indian restaurant for many years. I've had some good experiences and some bad (as is the norm - everyone is human) both dining inside and taking away. Of late, I feel the bad have outweighed the good - especially...in the takeaway department where consistency and quality control seem to have taken a back seat. To be fair, there's rarely a problem with the order, the temperature or the quantity of main courses - These aspects are fine. The main problems are as follows: - The overuse of a 'base gravy' as a platform for so many of it's recipes leave a lot of the dishes looking and tasting the same - in spite of the fact the recipes often require different approaches. This may be fine in some places but it's not ok at these prices. - This approach also gives a great inconsistency week to week in the products. I have often ordered the same dish a week later to find it looks, feels and tastes very different. Not good. (In case people think there's exaggeration afoot here - both of us ordered two separate dishes on separate orders and once home, both were identical) - The popadoms are often stale. Not occasionally, often. - The play on small starter portions is taken to the extreme given the price - Tandoori chicken starter. 1 pretty grizzly drumstick - €5.10 to take away. In fairness, I have had some great food from Sanjay's. I only felt the need to write this review because I guess negatives stay with us more than positives. To be honest. I like this place more because it's the only one for miles rather than it makes me come back.More

We had dinner in Sanjay’s Kitchen twice in the past two weeks. Both have been excellent experiences. The food in Sanjay’s is top class - we had chicken lababdar, korma, jalfrezi and the monkfish special. I would highly recommend all of these dishes ! All...of the food is fresh with high quality ingredients. The menu has a great selection and the staff are so friendly and helpful in advising. Can’t recommend this place enough.More

Absolutely delicious. My favourite place to eat in Birr. I lived in London for over 10 years and never had an Indian as good as this one. Just go there, you won’t regret it.

We (4 of us) had dinner here this month. Menu looked good and when we speculated about the possibility of a tasting menu the chef/owner came out and offered us a selection of starters and mains...Wellbit was fantastic. Starters were prawn, duck lamb and chicken...as well as a potato piece which was delicious. Mains were prawn (in coconut sauce) monkfish (in a delicious mango sauce) chicken and lamb. All delicious along with aloo potatoes rice and mixed flavoured naan. Desert was a chocolate Samosa We'll be back! Thanks.More

We found this restaurant through yelp and decided to try it based on other reviews. It was wonderful! I had Mango Chicken and my husband had the lamb vindaloo. The meat was tender and very flavorful. The lamb/cheese naan was like eating a pizza, just...spectacular!!! The service was wonderful and they chatted with us about our visit. Great place!!!More

So glad we found this place, really needed some spicy food. Very friendly service, our waiter went the extra mile. Some nice choices if a little different to what we would see in the UK, very good nonetheless. We all chose different dishes and all...4 of our partyraved about the food, mine could have had more spice and heat but really good. Tasty breads and rice, good wine choices. Highly recommend. Reasonable too.More

It was a real pleasure to meet Sanjay and his welcoming staff, hear about his journey from Dublin to finally set up shop in Birr and most of all, to taste his fantastic food, sourced, as Sanjay said, from every corner of India. Every dish...was rich and hearty, and redolent with complex and well-blended spices. The lamb ribs and tandoori dishes were standouts, but even the mushroom and spinach sides were absolutely first rate. And I should add his whole team was super gracious to welcome us and share their very best food even as we came in late from the road. Highly recommended.More
