The fantastic looking schoolhouse in Raheny Village has been the host to a few eateries over the years. The Thai Ruan Thai people have left the building to make way for The Mint Cottage.
Another Pakistan/Easterm style restaurant that seem to be the ethnic heroes of North Dublin. Familiar faces from Kinara in Clontarf, Okra in Howth and Kajjal in Malahide are present but I'm not sure who owns it.
The fare is similar to the restaurants mentioned above. I found the food very good, the menu is very very similar to Kinara with slight variations. It's all slightly cheaper too! I had a platter of Irish Lamb chops, potato cakes, chicken, jumbo prawns all dusted or marinated in various different spices. The girl I was with had a signature traditional Pakistan beef stew (most expensive dish at 20Euro and 50Cent), I had a taste, it was really good. The beef was like butter, the stew was spicy, but the waiter said we could have it normal, medium or mild. There is a decent wine menu with a lot of new world reasonably priced bottles. I prefer a beer with this type of food so I had two Cobra beers. We didn't have starters or deserts and we were stuffed leaving.
The good new is a Monday to Friday early bird! 18Euro for a three course meal. The early bird on offer the day I was there was a lamb dish, a chicken dish and a chick pea (veggie) dish. I forget what the starters and deserts were, but there was nan bread to go with the mains.
