We had heard that the food in The Eagle House was good but weren't sure if it was going to be up to much considering it was a pub. However, we can honestly say that it was one of the better Indian meals that we've had in a long long time. Well tempered curries and nicely cooked breads/ rice. The service was good and our waitress was very friendly and accommodating. The only downside was the pub's decor. We felt that the corner that we were seated in was a bit drab and really could do with a bit of freshing up. Mind you, once we started eating and we hardly noticed. Will be back again this weekend for more!

Voucher €19 for 2 starters, 2 mains, 2 sides & 2 glasses of wine, making this very good value for money. I did try to use the voucher a few times but they were fully booked. I eventually used it last friday. The tables all around me were all reseved for later times but there was nobody else there while I was there, however the waitress seemed distracted and bothered. Great value for money however I don't think I would hurry back.

Went out there on a Grabone voucher. I cannot remember what I paid for voucher but I am assuming it was very reasonably priced. I had been in the Eagle House before and had eaten in a restaurant upstairs which was very nice. I was therefore disappointed that we were dining in a cut off section of the bar area. Atmosphere was ok as opposed to great. It got buzzy later as there was a soccer match on the telly. Food really wasnt great. Menu had very little choices. The deal was only on the Indian section of the menu - that was not a problem as from the voucher I was aware that it was an Indian voucher that we purchased. Starter was nice and tasty. The sauces of both main courses were far too 'watery'. It would have been far better if they gave a thicker sauce and less of it rather than 2 bowls of watery liquid. In other words this was a watered down version of an Indian meal. There was a free glass of wine supplied with the meal. We asked if we could have a bottle of wine and take the price of the 2 glasses of wine off the cost of the bottle. They agreed to this which was exceptional customer service - which we rewarded with a good tip. As I stated above Service was excellent. Value has to be linked into the food - so I am giving food and value a 3.5 I would recommend - that they relook at the 'sauces situation'

Had a grab one deal for two starters, mains and rice or nan with two glasses of wine for 20 euro. It was great value for money. If I see this deal again will buy for sure. Nice pub with friendly staff.

Had dinner using the Grabone deal, 2 starters, 2 mains with pilau rice or naan bread each & a glass of wine each for €20. Staff were great & the food was really tasty. What a bargain for €20, will be buying this everytime i see the deal.

Very disappointing meal here on Friday, we both ordered steaks and I had to return mine as it was no where near what I'd asked for - this was not appreciated and I was made to feel very bad - only felt guilty for a minute as what returned was not much better. The steak was over done and tasteless.

Ate here with a friend in December using a voucher offering a starter, main course and a glass of wine. Staff were friendly and there was a nice atmosphere. The menu was quite limited however. We ordered the chicken and lamb for starters. Both were nicely presented and tasty, however both required more sauce, especially as the lamb was very spicy. Chicken tikka masala for mains was nice, however the salmon main course was a lot different to what is described on the menu. The salmon itself was cooked nicely, however some of the skin was left on with was a little off-putting. Pilau rice came instead of basmati, but was quickly replaced. Using the voucher we thought the meal and drinks were generally good value.

We took up the texting offer sent out from their special Indian menu of 2 starters, 2 mains, 2 rice/naan and 2 glasses of wine for just €20. WOW is all I could say! I read a review on the wall going in from Paolo Tullio the celeb restaurant reviewer on TV all the time in which he said it was unbeatable in Dublin....and I would agree with him. We will certainly go back there again soon and try out the full menu

Most amazing stuffing ever. So worth it. Lovely chef. Beautiful meat. Awesome. Would eat a plate of stuffing alone.

Located 5 mins from Glasthule Dart Station - very convenient to public transport. Was using a coupon which covered a starter, main course & a glass of wine. Great service, nice and comfortable. Had a kebab for the started, chicken tikka with rice & naan bread - very tasty. I understand there is an Indian Chef working at the premises. Came with a glass of house wine. Very enjoyable & you can enjoy a pint of Tuborg for a special €3.50 afterwards!

Had to work very hard on saturday night to make it down to glasthule for dinner as with the dart problem ended up walking from the bus in dun laoghaire. Arrived hungry and ready for a nice Indian meal in a local pub setting. I was disappointed no tandoori dishes on the menu as was indicated on the menupages online menu, but I had a very enjoyable chicken tikka masala all the same. The mixed platter is no longer on the menu either, and i would have liked that too. Stayed around after the meal for a couple of pints, but felt a little pressure to give back the table because they were quite busy. Recommended, nonetheless.

We had one of those groupon vouchers for a 3 course meal. It is a bit of a strange set up as the restaurant is basically in the pub. Food was good though. We couldn't get prawns with the voucher and only 2 choices for dessert even though this was not mentioned when you booked the voucher, but it was lovely overall. Staff not overly friendly, but still had a really good night.

We had a voucher as other reviewers had for a 3 course gourmet indian meal. We opted for 2 different starters however by friend's chosen option of samosas were not available so she quickly choose something else. She opted for the vegetable fritters while I went for the mixed platter. Both were tasty dishes, however my potato cake appeared to be awfully similar to the veg. fritters!!! For mains we had chicken and lamb dishes both of which were tasty enough. We ordered one naan and one rice however two rice appeared so we had to return one for the naan as originally ordered. We finished on desserts which were standard pub type dishes. Portion sizes were smaller than you would normally get in an Indian but that's not necessarily complaint! Overall the food was nice and it was a pleasant evening.

We redeemed our Groupon voucher in Eagle House, and were quite pleased with our visit. The place was nice, service was good, and the food was quite tasty, indeed. We had Indian cuisine, and it was pretty good value for money. Garlic naan was quite different than one usually gets, but it was very good as well.
