The setting and food are really first rate but unfortunately the service is poor, really poor. Realise there is an issue recruiting experienced staff at the moment but it was a quiet night and we were seated 2 hours before our main course arrived. The food was really delicious - potato cakes were divine, the naans are wafer thin and delicious and the rogan josh was excellent. Definitely would recommend it for the food but they just need to get it together for the service.

Food was delicious, service fantastic and restaurant is lovely. Had a lovely night here. Just for info there is a large service charge added which we weren't expecting and I was told beforehand I must pay €20 each for any guest on my booking who couldn't attend, which fortunately didn't happen.

Food very poor. Very disappointing, sauce was loaded with sugar very sweet, it was also very runny and had no nice flavor. No veg only sauce
and a small portion of meat. The kebab was a joke, four pieces of dry chicken on a stick very bad value for money. Would never go back again, service was bad, waiters made uncomfortable jokes, guy serving the food at the table had his hand over all the food handing it out and a mask down to his chin, very disturbing considering the current covid crisis.

The service was very bad when we were seated it took 10 mins for someone to come over who seemed like a manger but was very distracted. We were sitting right at the kitchen which we didn’t mind but the pass above my head had cling film and ordering dockets from suppliers so the area should really be cleaned. The food was disappointing. My husband got a sharing plate and his prawn was raw and mince lamb pattie, the mains were just like any basic Indian no flavor in them. We had been looking forward to this meal and where very disappointed. The only saving Grace was the girl who served our table was lovely.

The vibe of the restaurant is nice and staff are lovely and friendly. I am allergic to dairy however and everything on the menu had dairy bar the vegan main and one starter. Was a little bit disappointed that they couldn’t make any amendments to other dishes. Overall, if you had detergent requirements make sure to ring before hand to ask if they can accommodate you because there seemed to be little scope for changes to the dishes.

We had visited Doolally before covid and overall the food and experience was lovely. When we returned last night we were so excited. We ordered the prawn masala for our starter which was tasty. For our main I ordered the butter chicken and my partner ordered the lamb curry. The butter chicken sauce was nice and flavoursome but the chicken was just big chunks thrown in the bowl and the colour of the lamb curry itself wasnt in any way appealing. We had a plain naan and a marrowbone naan with our mains and both of them were burnt. Overall it wasn't a great experience which was a shame as we had really enjoyed it the last time.

Had the tasting starter which was excellent. One between two would be enough! My wife had the lamb saag which was wonderfully cooked and tender. I had the murgh chicken with smoked onion… I’m a big bbq fan, but I felt the flavours were slightly overpowered by the smoke… but that may be subjective… Really impressed with the food and service overall…

As always Doolally did not disappoint. Food was delicious but a tad too spicy. Suggestion would be to advise level of spice in each dish while taking the order. Did not compromise on the overall taste though Will be back again
