Having recently moved to Dundrum I made it a mission to get to Ananda sooner rather than later. A sunny evening midweek provided just the excuse to check out their Early Bird menu and stroll down for a feed.

Up, up, up four flights of stairs and you enter a vibrant room that feels like a cocoon. Water-lily chandeliers hang from the ceiling, rich cerise and lime colours transport you to the hottest parts of India.

We’re greeted with a cheerful ‘Namaste’ and even though it’s 15 minutes since the Early Bird menu finished, the sound staff say it’s no problem to still order from it.

A quick Google after dinner tells me that ‘ananda’ means bliss. It makes perfect sense. Walking down the stairs after dinner I felt like I’d travelled much further than just outside my front door, and that’s what the best restaurants achieve effortlessly.
