I went here for lunch today having only previously been for dinner and it was perfect. The service was prompt and the food was delicious. I had the Vegetable and Tofu Phad Kraprow and my friend had the Spicy Beef Salad. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals and also the carafe of sauvignon blanc that accompanied them!

Milano (Baggot Street)
1 - 2 Haddington Road, Dublin 4, City Centre South, Dublin

Much like any other Milanos. It was very empty at lunchtime so the service was quick. Unfortunately we forgot our voucher so it was expensive enough, especially the drinks (€3.55 for a teeny bottle of coke!). The romana pizzas are good but mine was a little bit cold. The leggara pizzas are nice but it almost feels like it's not worth paying the same for half a normal size pizza with a bit of rocket in the middle.

Oil Can Harry's
Lower Mount Street dublin, City Centre South, Dublin

Typical pub lunch food but the portions are big and everything tasted good. The staff were very friendly and the service was good so I'll definitely pop in again for lunch.

Tolteca Mexican Style Grill
38 Upper Baggot Street, Dublin 4, Baggot Street, Dublin

Great place for a quick lunch. The food was fresh and tasty and not bad value at €7.90 for Tacos (3) and a bottle of water. I'm not fond of the communal seating but that's one way to make sure people are in and out quickly.

Taste of Everest
17a Lower Baggot St, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Today was my first time here since it became Taste of Everest and it definitely won't be my last. The lunch offer of a starter and main for €9.95 was really good and the portions were huge. There's only 1 veggie main course on the menu but they were happy to do any dish we wanted. All the food was really fresh and I actually got my Balti nice and spicy as requested.

Eastern Seaboard
1 Bryanstown Centre, Dublin Road, Drogheda, Louth

This restaurant gets a lot of good reviews so we were really looking forward to trying it. Most of the food may be good but the veggie food isn't. I had a veggie burger type thing and there was just no flavour - it was like the chef never tasted it before putting it on the menu. My husband had a mushroom dish which he thought was only ok as it had a really overpowering crust. We had our toddler with us and the waitress gave us a kids menu so we assumed it would be toddler friendly. The spaghetti arrived in a bowl so big that the toddler couldn't even see over it so we ended up pouring out food onto a side plate but she didn't seem to like it anyway. The restaurant clearly doesn't cater for young children so perhaps we should have been told that when we turned up for lunch.

Green 19
19 Lower Camden Street, Dublin 2, Camden Street, Dublin

I went on a busy Friday night with a group of people and after initially being told when booking that we could have the table all night we were later informed that they needed it back 2 hours later. We shared 2 portions of the breads and dips (although the second portion didn't come with dips and we were charged the full amount). I had the olives, which were nice enough. For main course I had the mexican burrito and it was only ok. There wasn't a whole lot of flavour. The chips it came with were lovely though. The atmosphere was good but, being from the opposite side of the city, it's not worth the trek for me so I won't be back.

Pacifico Restaurant & Grill
Marine Court, The Green, Malahide, Malahide, Dublin

I have very mixed feelings about this restaurant. The food was fantastic but the service was bordering on terrible. They were very understaffed for a busy Friday night. There was one waitress and someone who appeared to be a manager. First off we were waiting forever to order although the table next to us who were seated at the same time were given attention from the beginning even though one of their party didn't turn up for a while. We eventually ordered and the waitress didn't right anything down which led her to come back to clarify a couple of times and left us worried that we'd get the wrong order. We were given complimentary tortilla chips and asked what dips we'd like. We asked for a hot one and a fruity one, we got a hot one and a cheesy one but they were still nice. Our starters of nachos for me and prawns for my friend were great and came out quickly so at least the kitchen is efficient. I had the veggie burritos for main and my friend had chicken fajitas. We were both very impressed although we were worried that we annoyed the manager type person when we asked him if he could remove the empty tortilla bowl so we'd have some room. We were waiting a long time for water when we requested but we had a lovely bottle of wine to tide us over. We finished with fabulous cocktails instead of dessert but we were a bit put out when the table next to us were offered drinks on the house at the end of the meal and we were yet again ignored. I can only guess that. Because of the terrible service (especially compared to the next table!) we were tempted not to leave a tip but we decided to leave a good one in the hope that some of it goes to the excellent kitchen staff. As yet I haven't decided if I'll go back.

Angel Park Eatery
5 Lower Mount Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I only found out this place existed today so I went on my lunchbreak from work. I was very impressed. It's small but we managed to get a table. I had the spinach and ricotta tortellini and my friend had the lasagne. Both were served with a small salad and potatoes. The food was lovely and the only negative is the price. A little on the expensive side for lunch so we won't be going here very often. I notice that they serve breakfast from 7.30am so it's possible we might pop in before work some day. The service was very efficient which is just what you need at lunch time.

Millstone, A Dublin Restaurant
39 Dame Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

We went here on Friday evening and thankfully we had a booking as the place was quite crowded. The only thing reason I didn't give 5 stars for atmosphere was because we were given a table right beside the kitchen where it was hot and bright yet 2 people who walked in moments before us with no booking were given a lovely table at the front of the restaurant. To start I had the shallot and potato soup which was really tasty and filling and he had the garlic bread. We ordered off the really good value set menu. I had the veggie croquette, poached pear option and he had the tofu steak. Both of these dishes were amazing and a far cry from the "vegetarian dish of the day" unfortunately seen on so many restaurant menus these days. The staff were attentive and friendly and we'll definitely be back.

Cape Greko (Malahide)
Unit 1 First Floor, New Street, Malahide, Malahide, Dublin

I went with a friend last Friday night and thankfully we had a booking as the place was packed. It looked great, the staff were really good, perfectly attentive but not intrusive. The food was absolutely perfect. We shared the vegetarian starter for 2 and it was gorgeous. It would be perfect as a main course for 1. I had the Halloumi & Pepper salad as a main dish but I couldn't finish it. My friend had chicken kebabs and couldn't finish them either! For dessert we had a couple of cosmos. I'm already planning my next visit.

Mirchi
9 Townyard Lane, North Co. Dublin, Malahide, Dublin

First visit to this restaurant and more than likely I'll go back. There were good and not so good aspects to my visit. First the good: the food is really really tasty and very well presented; the restaurant looks great and is very clean; the complimentary drink after the meal. The not so good: it's very expensive for an Indian restaurant, meat dishes are around €17.50 for a main and veggie around €14.50. This doesn't include rice or naan, which are €3 or €4 each. The staff are a bit too attentive, as in asking if they could take away our half full plates whilst we were bringing forkfulls of food to our mouths; it was quite empty so lacking in atmosphere - perhaps this is due to the high prices. The strange: I ordered a bottle of wine from the menu, the waiter came with a different one and when I corrected him he went off and came back 10 mins later with the same bottle and insisted it was the one I ordered (he called it the name of the one I ordered, not the name of the different grape on the bottle). It was a nice enough wine so we just accepted it instead of confusing the poor waiter any more.

Kay’s Food Hall
Blanchardstown Centre, Dublin 15, Blanchardstown, Dublin

I usually avoid this place as it's always so crowded, however I went in last week and I'll never go back. I ordered the Minestrone soup clearly labelled with a V symbol and also confirmed by staff that it was suitable for vegetarians. I ate some only to discover that there was some sort of animal flesh in it. I've never been so disgusted. When I went up to the staff member who served me she just looked at me as though I had two heads and said "oh it must not be vegetarian". Then she spoke to a number of chefs, came back and said that it was supposed to be veggie, hence the V symbol, but the chef decided to add meat. Then they took down the sign. No apology or anything.

Karma Thai
12 Mill Street, Balbriggan, Balbriggan, Dublin

I've been here a few times and it's always been great. The service is fantastic and the food is the best Thai food I've had in Dublin. There are a lot of vegetarian options and they're all incredibly tasty. They cater very well for groups and I'll be going back soon enough.

The Restaurant @ Marks and Spencer
Marks and Spencer, Grafton Street, City Centre South, Dublin

We went here at lunch time and it was extremely busy but we got seated straight away. Unfortunately we were given an awful seat at the corner of a sofa section and the staff wouldn't move us to one of the regular tables as they were all reserved. They were out of a few things on the menu and we weren't told this until we tried to order. I had the tomato soup, which was ok and the nachos. Both tasted like the food from the supermarket but just cost a lot more. My friend had the chicken & bacon club sandwich and thought it was nice enough. I might go back again but it wouldn't be my first choice.

Trocadero
St Andrew Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I went here on a Saturday night with a group of people so a wide variety of dishes were ordered. Unfortunately we were squashed on to a table meant for far less people than were in our group so there was a lot of elbow bashing going on. It was my first time there but I think we were seated in a bar area so it was a little uncomfortable having people standing up around us. It would have been better if they'd told us when booking that they couldn't accommodate us so we could have gone elsewhere. Anyway, on to the food. Mostly everyone enjoyed there food, however the roast beetroot & goats cheese didn't appear to have been fully cooked. The pesto linguine was ok but a little bland so not a great veggie option. We'd brought in a birthday cake (agreed in advance) and it was served with a great rendition of Happy Birthday but I was a little surprised to see that after we'd been served the cake, the people next to us were served slices of OUR cake for somebody elses birthday at that table!!

Saagar Indian Restaurant
16 Harcourt Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

Myself and my friend were the only 2 people in here on a Thursday evening, although they did seem to be sending out a lot of take aways. Because of this and the bright lights there wasn't much of an atmosphere. To start I had Onion Bahjis and my friend had Vegetable Samosas. The portions were huge and very tasty. It was during our starters that we noticed our napkins were damp (and so were the others that we nabbed from the next table). I had the vegetable Kolapuri for main course and this was really really good, however there were way too many mushrooms in it compared to other vegetables. My friend asked for Chicken Rogan Josh which wasn't on the menu but they had no problem making it. The one big downside to the meal was that the garlic naan was really cold so we only picked at that. The bill including tea, 1 diet coke & 1 glass of wine came to €57.50, which is a little on the steep side for an Indian. I'll definitely try it again but maybe on a weekend night.

Dobbins Restaurant
15 Stephen Lane, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I went here on a Tuesday night with a group of people and was surprised to find it quite busy. There were baskets of bread on the table as soon as we arrived. I had the goats cheese starter, which was tasty but unfortunately the only vegetarian starter on offer. For main course I had the stuffed pepper, which was unlike any stuffed pepper I've had before. It was a tomato & rice dish with a roasted pepper at the bottom. It was still very tasty though but the portion could have been a little bigger. I wanted the belgian chocolate tart for dessert but they didn't have it so instead I went for a lemon tart. Again, this was incredibly tasty. Overall I really enjoyed the meal but I don't think it's somewhere I'd choose to go again because of the limited veggie options.

Chameleon Restaurant
1 Lower Fownes Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

I've wanted to try this place for a while and finally got around to it last night. Four of us went, 2 had the veggie Rijst Tafel and 2 had one of the meaty/fishy ones. After we ordered it seems that we were forgotten about for a while so it took a long time for any food to come out (people who arrived after us received their food before us) so we were beginning to get a little annoyed. This was the only let down of the evening however as the food was amazing. There wasn't one dish that we didn't like and the quantities were perfect. There was 20% off the food bill so it was really good value. I'll definitely go back (and hopefully won't be forgotten about next time!).

Dada Restaurant
45 South William Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I have mixed feelings about this restaurant. I loved the look of the restaurant and the staff were really great but I'm still unsure about the food. I went with 2 others on Friday night. To start I had the lentil soup, which was possibly the nicest soup I've ever had. One friend had the spinach marinated with pickled lemon, which was also really good. The other friend had the prawns and she liked them. The main courses were the let down of the evening. I had the vegetable mezze - this had hummus, spinach (same as the above starter), roasted peppers and cous cous. The cous cous was a little too sweet for my liking and the mezze was just crying out for bread. The vegetable cous cous main course was only ok and like the chicken cous cous dish it was served with way too much cous cous (probably 90% of the dish!!). The desserts were average but quite expensive at €7.50 so I wouldn't order them again.

Sushi King now closed on Dawson St
Gochi Japaenese-French Fusion Now Open, City Centre South, Dublin

After receiving a lot of flyers for Sushi King I decided to try it for lunch yesterday (take - out). I had the veggie power box that consisted of 4 different rolls and the vegetable tempura box. They were both very tasty but I was still a little hungry afterwards. I will probably go back.

101 Talbot
Talbot Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

I was here a couple of times years ago but always found the restaurant to be too noisy so I never went back - until last Friday when we were hungry and happened to be walking by. The menu isn't very exciting to read so I was expecting bland food. Thankfully I was wrong! I had the goats cheese and sundried tomato crostini to start and it was really good, much lighter than I'd expected. My husband had the hummus with crudites, which he liked but I thought it was a little boring. For main course I had the lentil and courgette lasagne and it was amazing. The menu description doesn't do it justice. He had the stuffed peppers, which again were amazing. We shared a chocolate & hazelnut brownie for dessert (again yum!) and had a bottle of Riesling. The total bill came to around €86. The staff were great but I still find the restaurant a little noisy. It sounds like a canteen. Maybe it needs some background music.

Thai Orchid (Dublin)
7 Westmoreland Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I went here on Friday. Hadn't intended on having the early bird menu as I just wanted a main dish, however there was nothing vegetarian on the al a carte menu (menupages menu is not accurate). I ended up having the spring rolls starter and he had the deep fried veggie dish. Nothing special, just the same as in any chinese restaurant or frozen food dish. There were no veggie thai curry options unfortunately. I had a noodle/tofu/veggie dish. It was ok but way too sweet for my liking. He had the other veggie option which was veggies in soy sauce. Not bad but not worth the cost. With 2 beers and a tea & coffee (course 3 of the early bird menu) the bill came to around €55. A bit steep for not very good food. We would have left after discovering no veggie food but we'd already ordered beer, had our jackets taken and had trusted the menupages menu. The staff were attentive so that was good but I had to mark the atmosphere down as the man at the table next to us had his shoes off and his feet on the chair opposite him - yuck! We definitely won't be going back.

Gourmet Burger Kitchen (GBK Swords)
Pavillion Shopping Centre, Malahide Road, Swords, Dublin

I went here before the cinema one Saturday evening and it was very busy. The service wasn't too bad but could have been better. I was really looking forward to the falafel burger but they didn't have any so I tried the puy lentil burger. It was huge but fell apart when I tried to eat it. It was way too salty so I could only manage half of it. I ordered chips too but these were a bit cold so I wouldn't bother with them again, especially as the burgers are expensive enough. I might go back again but only if they have falafel burgers.

La Caverna Restaurant & Wine Bar
12 Fownes Street, Dublin 2, City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

I tried La Caverna based on the reviews here and I wasn't disappointed. The service was excellent throughout the meal. I started with the Bruschetta Pomodoro and it was perfect. The pizzas are nice and thin and very tasty and the pasta sauce was gorgeous. With a bottle of wine, a shared dessert and two glasses of desseert wine as well as two courses each the total only came to €71 for 2 people. Very good value.

profile_review

Madina Desi Curry Co
60 Mary Street, Dublin 1, City Centre North, Dublin

This place wasn't as good as previous reviews led me to believe. The service was fantastic (except for the starters arriving only 1 minute before the mains). There was a good vegetarian selection on the menu, like most Indian restaurants. Unfortunately the food just wasn't that great. We shared a couple of dishes. We asked for the vegetable curry to be very spicy however there was only the tiniest hint of spice so it was quite disappointing. The portions of rice were huge compared to the size of the dishes. Overall it worked out a little more expensive than other Indians, which I hadn't expected from a cafe.

profile_review

IFI Cafe Bar
6 Eustace Street, Temple Bar, Temple Bar, Dublin

The portions are very generous and the food is quite tasty. The falafels could do with some spicy sauce or tsatziki instead of mayonaisse. The service could be better but for a pub type place it was fine. The veggie burger is good but needs a bun. Very good value and I'll definitely go again.

profile_review

Afsana
3 Temple Bar, Temple Bar, Dublin

The earlybird menu of €13 for 4 courses is a little misleading as one "course" is poppadom and another is rice or naan. But still, €13 for a two course meal isn't bad. I had the Aloo Tikki and my friend had the Onion Bahji. Both were fine. The hot chutney was a little odd though. For main course I had a vegetable vindaloo and he had a vegetable madras. Both were very similar with the vindaloo being a tiny bit spicier. If I go again I'll ask for it to be really hot as it was a bit too mild for my taste. The service was excellent but that might be because we were the only people in the restaurant.

profile_review

Mongolian Barbeque
7 Anglesea Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I went with a friend for the early bird special and at first we were the only people there so we didn't have to wait long for our food to be cooked. We skipped the salad and had 3 main bowls each, trying different combinations each time. We were given extra rice without asking, which was good as we really needed it. We both had the rhubarb crumble for dessert. Unfortunately it was served with ice cold custard so it wasn't really that nice. It's good novelty place but the selection of vegetables here isn't as good as in similar places abroad and it can be difficult to get a good flow of conversation going when you're going up and down all the time.

Peploes Wine Bistro
16 St Stephen's Green, Dublin , City Centre South, Dublin

I made a booking through menupages and received confirmation, however when we arrived the restaurant had no record of our reservation. As I had the print out confirmation from menupages they honoured the reservation so all was well. The service was excellent but the food wasn't as good as I'd expected. To start I had the deep fried Brie. This was tasty but was served on turnip mash, which was quite strange. The Christmas lunch menu online wasn't available so we were given the regular menu, which wasn't as good as unfortunately the only vegetarian main course contained mushrooms, which I can't stand. Thankfully though there were only 3 or 4 mushrooms in it so easy to pick out. The wine was really really good so I'd be tempted to go back again. The other people in my group enjoyed their food too apart from one person who thought the pheasant was very overcooked.

Cactus Jacks (Middle Abbey St)
Millennium Walkway, Middle Abbey Street, City Centre North, Italian Quarter, Dublin

A group of us went here on Saturday and had a really good time. Our table wasn't ready when we arrived at the booked time so we were sent across to a restaurant/bar for a drink. Apart from that, everything else was good. The service was good and the portions were generous. The food was the good, but it's hard to do mexican food badly! We had quite a few cocktails which were only ok, a little bit watery perhaps so next time I'll stick with the beer. I'll probably go back again.

Restaurant @ the Dublin Skylon Hotel
McEniff Skylon Hotel, Upper Drumcondra Road, Dublin 9, Drumcondra, Dublin

This was probably the strangest meal I've ever had. I was at the hotel for a murder mystery function. The hotel was warned in advance about a number of vegetarians attending. The starter of winter soup was fine but the main course was a selection of deep fried snack foods served on top of a lump of potatoes. Snack food such as onion rings, garlic mushrooms and croquettes. It was very difficult to eat and a very poor attempt at a vegetarian main course. The service was good but not good enough to make the main course edible.

The Hairy Lemon Traditional Pub & Restaurant
Stephen Street Lower, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I've been here for drinks lots of times but today was the first time I went for lunch. The service was very good from the moment we stepped inside. I just had a toasted sandwich and it was fine. I wish I'd been hungrier as the menu looked really good. I'll definitely give it another go soon.

profile_review

Alex Restaurant
Conrad Hotel, Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I had a really nice time at this restaurant on Saturday night. The service was perfect. The only thing I didn't like was that the menu online was out of date so I didn't get to try the dishes I was looking forward to. To start I had a blue cheese and pear salad that was just perfect in every way. Then I had the grilled Haloumi & vegetables with a side order of asparagus and it was really tasty. Dessert was a pecan and banana pie that was just too filling but yum. Overall it's expensive but that could be because we ordered an expensive bottle of wine too. I think I'll go back again but would like to see a few more options on the menu.

profile_review

La Mere Zou
22 St Stephens Green, Dublin , City Centre South, Dublin

I've been here twice. Once for a work lunch and the last time for the early bird dinner. The menu is limited but not too bad. I had a goats cheese starter which was similar to goats cheese starters everywhere. For the main course I had a beetroot risotto that wasn't bad but the rice was just a little undercooked. The staff here are never friendly but not especially rude either. At €26 the ealy bird 3 course menu is reasonable but they make up the money in the hugely expensive wine selection. Overall it's kind of a bland restaurant. I won't be rushing to go back but I won't be upset if I have to go to another business lunch there either.

profile_review

Luigi Malones Restaurant
5/6 Cecilia Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

I always avoided this place because I don't usually like "chain" restaurants. I was pleasantly surprised the other night when I finally tried it out. We went in at around 6pm and were told there was an earlybird menu (although the actual menu wasn't provided). It turns out that we were only charged the earlybird price of €29.90 for a bottle of champagne. To start we shared the nachos. These were extremely tasty, although a little more salsa would be nice. I had the Bean Cassoulet and it was really good. My friend had the Viesta Fajitas, which contained chickpeas (yum!). Too full for dessert so we had a tolberone cocktail and a malteser cocktail. I'll definitely go back again.

profile_review

Acapulco Restaurant
7 South Great Georges Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

I've had dinner here a few times and today was the second time I was there for lunch. The lunch menu is quite good but the service really lets the place down. I would prefer if the staff wrote down the order instead of memorising it but luckily it was all correct. Although the place wasn't busy when we arrived it took ages for our order to be taken. We shared Nachos Supreme to start with and that was very tasty. Then I had the Veg Chilli Tostada and my friend had Chicken Quesadilla. Her dish was hot (temperature) but mine wasn't. It had taken a long time for the main course to arrive so I didn't have time to ask them to heat it up. The lunch menu is a lot cheaper than the dinner menu but this is reflected in the portion sizes. I'll probably go back as hopefully the staff aren't always so slow.

Garam Masala

Always good food and good service. I've only been here a few times as it's sister restaurant in Balbriggan in handier for me. The waiters can be a little too attentive sometimes but it's worth putting up for it for the excellent food.

Harveys Bar and Grill Restaurant (Above Harvest Bar & Lounge)
Main Street, Balbriggan, Balbriggan, Dublin

I went here a couple of weeks ago on a Saturday night with 5 friends and it was really busy. The service was excellent and the cocktails cheap and tasty. The veggie burger is made from chickpeas and really nice. The portions are very big so I'd recommend sharting a starter and going in very hungry.

Shan Restaurant
6 Crow Streetle Bar, Dublin 2 , City Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin

This is a good place to go when it's late at night and everywhere else is closed. The food is tasty, particularly the vegetable vindaloo and the service is quite good.

Jaipur Restaurant (George's Street)
41 South Great Georges Street, Dublin 2 , City Centre South, Dublin

This isn't a great Indian restaurant for vegetarians. The veggie options were all side dishes - no madras, no jalfrezi, no balti - very disappointing. We went with a group of 9 people and weren't allowed order individual rices or naans. Instead the waiter insisted on bringing a selection to share. The lemon rice (and another one I forget) were left sitting on the table and there wasn't enough of the other types. And one garlic naan is never going to be enough for 9 people, again the peshwari naan and another one were left on the table. It's also extremely overpriced compared to other Indian restaurants in Dublin.

Gotham Cafe
8 South Anne Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

This isn't a bad place for lunch but I've never had dinner here. The menu is quite good and varied. I like the salads but the pizzas, calzones are a little too oily for me. The worst thing about this place is that the tables are so close together that it's almost like dining with complete strangers. A bit more space between tables and I'd give Gotham a higher rating. The service is only ok and it's definitely something the staff could brush up on.

Cates Cafe
19 Castlemill Balbriggan, Balbriggan, Dublin

I've eaten here a lot, always for breakfast after a good night out. There's a good selection on the menu. The veggie breakfast is really good. It's a little bit overpriced but not too bad. The staff are mostly good although there's one waitress with quite bad English so ordering can take a while.

Mirchi (CORK)
Unit 2/3, Millbrook Centre, Mill Road, Midleton, Cork

The restaurant looked nice but I only got take away. At €12.50 for a veggie main course it was the most expensive Indian take away I've ever had but it was tasty enough. I had the vegetarian vindaloo and it was nice and spicy. The one fault was that it had mushrooms, which I hate. Surprisingly I've only come across a small number of Indians that put mushrooms in a veggie dish. Unfortunately these were sliced, not whole, so it took a while to pick them out. The garlic naan was really good. This seems to be the only Indian in Middleton so I will be going back again if I'm ever there.

Wagamama - Stephen's Green
St Stephen's Green Centre, South King St, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Maloti
34-35 South William Street, South William Street, Dublin

I went here with 5 friends on Friday evening and it was better than I remembered. We all ordered from the set menu and nobody was disappointed. The onion bahji and veggie pakoras were delicious. One of our group ordered a meat main dish and liked it. The rest of us went for veggie dishes, I had the Jalfrezi and, although it was tasty, it wasn't quite as hot as I'd requested. Hopefully I'll be back soon.

Indie Spice Grill
Burgundy House, New Street, North Co. Dublin, Swords, Dublin

I've had take away and eaten in the restaurant a couple of times and I'm still not impressed. The vegetarian selection is awful - everything is made with cream. On Sunday there was a special mothers day lunch menu which had the option of vegetable jalfrezi. I was looking forward to it but a little shocked as it was the mildest jalfrezi I've ever had (and I eat Indian food a lot!). I think I've given it enough chances so I won't be going back again - vegetarians deserve spicy food too!

Cornucopia
19/20 Wicklow Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

After all the good comments about Cornucopia, I finally decided to give it a try. I went in a little before rush hour lunch to avoid the crowds. I had some sort of dahl dish with a side salad and it wasn't really that tasty. The portion was quite small and at €12.50, quite expensive. I'm tempted to go back and give it another try because of all the good reviews. Maybe I just went on an off day.

That's Amore - Malahide
12 Townyard Lane, North Co. Dublin, Malahide, Dublin

I went here for lunch yesterday and I was surprised at how good the food was. I had the risotto of the day, which was leek, pea & courgette with a tomato base. The rice was cooked perfectly and the portion size was good. My friends both had different types of chicken sandwiches and really enjoyed them. It's somewhere I'll be going back to.

Govindas Restaurant (Merrion Row)
18 Merrion Row, City Centre South, Dublin

I've eaten lunch here a couple of times including today and I always come out way too full - even with the small plate. The food is incredibly tasty and the portions are huge. The staff are very friendly too. They never seem to have veggie burgers when I'm there but the samosas are really nice. The desserts are huge too so maybe one between two people is best.

Thunder Road Cafe
Fleet Street, Dublin 2, Temple Bar, Dublin

Had a brilliant night here on Saturday. It's definitely a place for celebrations and not an intimate meal for two. The staff were fantastic and the food was really good (particularly the veggie burger). I'll definitely go back, hopefully sooner rather than later.

Saba
26-28 Clarendon Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I went here for lunch today having only previously been for dinner and it was perfect. The service was prompt and the food was delicious. I had the Vegetable and Tofu Phad Kraprow and my friend had the Spicy Beef Salad. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals and also the carafe of sauvignon blanc that accompanied them!

The Cedar Tree
11a St Andrews Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

I've been here a few times and the food is always fantastic. Over Christmas they had a special Christmas menu which resulted in a mezze a lot smaller than usual but a lot more expensive so I wasn't too happy with that. I'll definitely be back but just not over any other Christmas.

Jewel in the Crown (South William Street)
5 South William Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

This is one of my favourite Indian restaurants in Dublin. Good food, good service, good location, good prices. They're also well able to cater for large groups. The vegetarian options are as good as if not better than other Indian restaurants.

Juice Vegetarian Restaurant
9 Castle House, South Great Georges Street, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

My first visit here was about 8 or 9 years ago and I never planned to go back as the food was bland and the atmosphere awful. However, I was invited along to a meal at Juice a few nights ago and it was much better than I expected. The place was packed and the atmosphere was great. Unlike earlier posters, we had no issues with the service although it took a little while to get the bill. I had the Juiceburger and chips and it was tasty enough. If I was making it myself I'd probably add a bit of chilli to the burger to give it a kick as it was a little bland. My friends liked the noodle dishes but they could have been presented better. The desserts were good but the wine wasn't the best, and it was a little expensive too. Overall, I'd go back again but probably only at someones elses suggestion.

Castellina Chianti
George's Hill, Balbriggan, Dublin

I've eaten here a few times. The first two times the service was great and the food perfect but lately it's gone downhill in terms of service. They really need more waiting staff as it's not great to wait 45mins for the bill after requesting it more than once. The food seems to be better at weekends than during the week. I wonder if they have different chefs?
