3 Leaves is a unique Indian casual dining room, situated in the heart of Blackrock Market in south county Dublin. This friendly restaurant is run by passionate husband and wife team Chef Santosh and Milie. The name 3 Leaves originated from the three herbs commonly used in Indian cuisine – Mint, Coriander and Curry Leaves.
We serve exciting and mouth-watering Indian Street Food and regional curries using seasonal ingredients, from different states of the vast and incredible India. Our menu changes frequently and feature a taster menu where you can experience most of Chef Santosh’s distinctive curries.

Our chef Santosh Thomas was crowned the Best Chef for Indian Cuisine in Dublin by the Irish Curry Awards. The Irish Curry Awards, in association with Cobra Beer, UTIS Holdings and BJ Productions, took place this year at the Crowne Plaza, Shaw’s Bridge, on Tuesday 24 October 2017, and celebrated the best restaurants and curries on the island of Ireland, for a second year.
An estimated 700 curry houses operate successfully between Ballyferriter in Kerry and Ballycastle in Antrim. These awards were created by Belfast-based restaurateur Askir Ali to recognise the contribution made to Ireland’s food scene by hundreds of Indian, Bangladeshi, Pakistani and other Asian chefs, restaurant workers and managers.

Santosh Thomas’ delightful 3 Leaves Indian street food venue at Dublin’s Blackrock Market is proving a real hit. Think spicy balchaoo calamari, vegetable or lamb momos, samosa chaat or maybe some protein and vitamin rich sprouted mung dhal chaat.
