Overall an outstanding restaurant and one of my favourite Indian restaurants in York. The staff are friendly, polite, welcoming and ensure you have everything you want. The food is outstanding - always full of flavour, fresh, reasonably priced and are of generous portions . We usually order the buffet but will sometimes select from the menu too, the poppadom and...

I frequent many restaurants in York and Jinnah is one of my favourite to date. I went with my girlfriend earlier in the weak and found the place very accommodating. It was pretty quiet although that was likely due to it being a Monday night and the floods around York. It'll probably be busier around the weekend, I imagine. The... More

TA was responsible for raising my expectations, only to end up slightly disappointed. In fairness it was Saturday night and we had no reservation. The place was packed and staffing levels were not high. I felt quite exhausted just watching the staff tearing around! Our buffet started with a popodom each, albeit with seven pickles. This was followed by a... More

The family and I have been going to Jinnah on a regular basis for around 18 months and there is only word to describe the food "Amazing". When I say regular I mean at least fortnightly and whilst often we intend to try somewhere different the lure of Jinnah and the excellent food and service (particularly from Farouqh) is too... More

The largest buffet selection I have had the pleasure of choosing from. Being served popadoms & a tray of no less than 7 pickles followed by a sizzling tray of starters is a really nice touch, before moving onto the buffet. The quality of the food is outstanding, very tasty, full of flavour and obviously freshly prepared. The a la... More

As a resident of York I’ve had the pleasure of eating in a great many of its wonderful restaurants, but I have to say that since discovering Jinnah we rarely go anywhere else. The quality of food is unrivalled and the atmosphere is relaxed, welcoming and comfortable. The staff is incredibly friendly and genuinely nice people. I have a large... More

We decided to go to Jinnah ( had been to the harrogate restraurant) and we were not disappointed. The meal was excellent and the staff were all very helpful. The menu was varied with a good selection of mild, medium and hot dishes. Thank you for a lovely meal.

Me and my family regularly eat at Jinnah because of the extremely polite and knowledgable staff, the excellent food and the cheap/brilliant buffet! I would recommend this for everyone as they serve mild, medium and hot dishes, and all are lovely.

I am a MASSIVE fan of Indian Cuisine and I have a good knowledge of what good food and good Indian tastes like, and SHOULD taste like. I've lived in York for over 4 years now and of all the Indian restaurants that I have visited, tried and experienced I have to say that Jinnah is the best. To me... More
