AWARDS & PRIZES

We seek out the best establishments in every part of Ireland for inclusion in our guides and, because we work independently and without charging a fee, you know that we can be trusted to lead you to the best places over a wide range of categories. Good Food Ireland is an industry driven food tourism organisation which was established in November 2006. Many good food operators in a cross-section of establishments all around the island from restaurants to accommodation, pubs to food shops to cookery schools wanted to be recognised and endorsed for their commitment to using Irish, local and artisan food produce. They wanted to share experiences and be cooperatively marketed to the domestic and international tourist. Agriculture and Tourism, two vital economies for Ireland have so much in common and are yet so far apart. Through Good Food Ireland the industry from both these sectors share a common belief and come together as one. Good Food Ireland brings you the visitor or domestic consumer what we believe is the only way to get a true taste of Ireland. In 1900, André Michelin published the first edition of a guide to France to help drivers maintain their cars, find decent lodging, and eat well while touring. In 1926, the guide introduced the star to note good cooking; two and three stars were added in the early 1930s. The guide awards one to three stars to a small number of restaurants of outstanding quality. Every year, the Bridgestone editors set out to find those restaurants that offer the best cooking and the best service in Ireland. This book features grand city restaurants, and tiny little one-room restaurants in the wilds of the country. There are restaurants located on islands, and restaurants that reverberate with the energy and mania of the city.

This restaurant is quite hidden (down steps on Harcourt Street) but quite a large one once you step inside. Very authentic feel about the place, great service and very nice food. Will def return.

Had a meal here Friday night on a voucher. Place was really nice, the food really great and the service was not only very fast but also great in terms off getting everything right. We liked everything especially that we were allowed to bring home the remains off what we could not finish and they packaged it up swiftly. Only one complaint there was a slight mix up with the bill and we were overcharged for rice which should have been on the voucher but sure it doesn't happen too often and we would really recommend this Indian as one of the top Indians in Dublin City Center.

went with a groupon midweek. ended up being busy with a crowd arriving without a booking and the restaurant had already had a last-minute staff shortage. the remaining staff dealt with the situation admirably, staying friendly and no huge delays. food was very tasty. lighting in the room could be a little warmer.

The food was amazing as always. We used our Rewarding Times voucher which included any two starters and mains plus either 4 bottles of Cobra beer or a bottle of wine for €49, amazing value. Cannot fault the food at all, cannot wait to go back!

My OH and I booked dinner with our deals voucher. Staff are very friendly and efficient. We both had prawn puri for starters which had a lovely spice to it and very moreish. We had chicken biryani and chicken madras with rice and naan sides which were plentiful and delicious. We didn't want the house white so got a Chardonnay instead which we paid a €5 supplement for. We will definitely return again. As regards to previous comments about delays, food should be enjoyed. Go to a fast food joint if you're in a hurry

I went here with a group on a saturday evening and the restaurant was quiet on arrival but had filled slightly by time we left.. the food was just ok, but unfortunately the waiting period between courses was far too long. 50 mins between starter and main course, and only one of our party had ordered a starter so was quite a frustrasting wait!! Little things like having to repeatedly ask for water refills and more wine brought the service score down. Would consider going back if on a voucher perhaps.

Had to review this place as i am a regular there albeit with vouchers, well let me tell you if its authentic tasty Indian food you're after this place is the best around!! I have only given a couple of reviews which were mostly negative ones borne out of annoyance and forgot to give a deserved review so here I am,I had Chicken Vindaloo which i have been told by an Indian Chef is NOT only all about heat but other background flavours too and it was 10 out of 10, service ain't great decor is a bit dodgy but I go for FOOD and believe me it's the best I've been in in Dublin!!!

When we arrived it was quiet but had filled by the time we were leaving. We were seated quickly and given menus. As we were using a voucher we verified from which menu we could order but it took 15 minutes before our order was taken. However after that everything was served in a timely manner with water being topped up regularly. Poppadums & dips were brought along with the wine, we shared tasty starters of vegetable samosas & chicken tikka. When ordering the main courses we ensured the waiter knew we liked spicy food. The main course dishes of Chicken Madras and Lamb Jalfrezi were cooked to the agreed spice level and very flavoursome. Fresh coffee finished off the meal nicely. Manager was circulating, chatting with diners and checked on us during the meal Generous portion sizes and I was able to get my leftovers in a box to bring home. Menupages voucher was very good value.

My partner and I made use of the menupages voucher last Tuesday evening. We arrived promptly for our 8:00pm booking and, once verified, brought to a table in the corner. We liked the look of the room and, as it was quite busy, there was a pleasant atmosphere. We were presented with menus after a few minutes, but did not receive the normally expected poppadoms and dips. Perhaps this was to do with the voucher? Seeing the set meal option for €49.95 caused a little confusion, so we felt the need to clarify the scope of the voucher. That done, we could decide on our choices. Eventually, our order was taken, but no mention made of the wine. We requested water at this stage. after a wait, our choice of red or white was requested. Our starters finally made it to our table and were quite enjoyable, but appeared rather small. However when the mains arrived, we appreciated that the starters were big enough. We had both chosen dishes we had not had before and really liked them. The pilau rice and the peshawri naan were quite palatable. Overall, the food was very tasty and enjoyable. The service, although a little slow, was very courteous. Starters: Aloo Tikki Chaat & Aloo Mushroom Pakora . Mains: Chicken Jaipuri & Murgh Makhani. Would not have a problem recommending Saagar for leisurely meal. Lovely variety on menu.

Used our menupages voucher on Sat evening and the place was deserted. The music in the background seemed to be on repeat and it was the same song playing over and over again! Hubby ordered the tandori selection for starters which were ok - a bit dry. My chicken tikka starter was quite rubbery. For mains we ordered prawns (2 supplement on the voucher). Hubbys dish was supposed to be hot but it wasn't, my medium dish was hotter. Rice and naan were good. When we enquired about desert, they said that they didn't have any - i was looking forward to a traditional Indian icecream! I wouldn't rush back, even with a voucher!

We have just registered with Menupages but have used it many times before. We have just dined at Sagaar this evening having bought a voucher for 2 starters,2 Mains,2 Desserts and a bottle of house wine for 49.95. The location was convenient to the Luas line and we entered the restaurant in the basement with a little trepidation after having read some of the reviews of Saagar ranging from wonderful to dreadful. The dining room is high roofed and pleasant but could do with a coat of paint to brighten it up. I had vegetable samosa to start and my wife had Tandoori butterfly prawns both of which were good particularly the prawns (2 euro supplement) . We both had lamb dishes I had lamb tikka kahari and my wife lamb tikka masala. Again both were good with a nice depth of flavour and we shared a basmati rice and naan bread which were tasty. However no desserts were offered only tea or coffee which was disappointing.The house wine was a french pays d'oc merlot which was good and resonably priced. The experience was spoiled upon asking for the bill which should have been E4.50 for the supplement and the naan bread. A handwritten bill for E80.35 less the voucher value arrived requesting an extra 30 euro. We queried this explaining the voucher and it was rectified immediately. Either the owners do not understand voucher deals or are trying it on to get extra payment?. Don't sign up to do deals if you are unhappy with them. Good food but cannot recommend until last issue is rectified.

I used a menupages deal voucher recently and was impressed. The food was very tasty and we had access to most of the a la carte menu with the exception of king prawn dishes which carried a supplement. The service was very friendly and courteous throughout. Even though we were 20 mins late for our booking we were greeted with smiles. The only downside was the lack of atmosphere. On a friday night we were one of three tables! Such a shame as people are really missing out on good food here. Hopefully things will pick up for them so everyone can enjoy a better atmosphere too. Do give it a go.
