Prosecco in Harold’s Cross
and Tandoori in Terenure

After a long working day following a long working weekend, I went along to a birthday party this evening – a birthday party for a 95-year-old family member. Now that’s an age worth celebrating.

After prosecco and birthday cake, it was quite late when I started to head home. Late indeed. Two of us stopped to collect a meal in the Royal Tandoori on Terenure Road North.

South Dublin benefits with the number of Indian and Pakistani restaurants – from Bu Ali in Lower Clanbrassil Street to Kundan Tandoori in Tallaght and Bombay Pantry near Marlay Park.

Terenure has improved a lot since I wrote about the number of closure of shops and the vacant sites. There was a warm welcome in the Royal Tandoori on Terenure Road North late this evening.

Terenure has a wide vaiety of restaurants – from Indian to Italian, Persian, Japanese and traditional Irish. This is an area of Dublin could do with an extra boost. Warm welcomes and good food go a long way towards creating this.
