Dining Experience at it's best

The Food ! Awesome. Service second to none. Seating in Jalsa is bit uncomfortable. I had a very posh dress and high heels on. Difficult, so dress casual.

Liked the food and the presentation...Beautiful ambience, courteous staff, great menu on the table, well deserving of the times foods award...Right from the starters to dessert, loved every single item they had to offer on the table... I am sure even the hardcore meat eaters will not mind turning into veggies once they visit Jalsa...

Good choice of Gujarati items in thali. We chose limited thali which was INR 700 per thali. Unlimited thali is for INR 1100+taxes. There is not much of the difference as far as number of items are concerned except few deserts and farsan excluded. Believe me limited thali is just more than sufficient and really no need to spend extra... More

When vegetarian food is this good you don't need meat - excellent selection of well but not over spiced food - a must for any non-indian to try.
