  • Assuming that the deduplication storage is not your bottleneck (if you are not sure, you should test the disk speed as well as other types of restores [non-vmware, etc]), are you restoring the vm via vcenter ?  

    If so, you may want to designate an ESX restore host.  There are many articles out there indicating less than stellar SAN restore performance if you are routing the restore through vCenter.
