Haven for vegetarians

Ate at this place countless times. Their food is delicious and very well priced. The breakfast in particular is incredible, with home made peanut butter being the star of the show!

Taking on board the various comments by other visitors about the slow service I ate at Jina's two nights in a row arriving at the 6.30 pm opening time on each occasion. I had the puri dish the first night and falafels the second and both were very good. The food is so different here from all the other fare... More

I had the falafel plate, chocolate milkshake and carrot and walnut cake. Despite preparing myself for the wait, service was an above average speed. I paid a little over 1200. There's no wifi and the book exchange requires you out in two books to take out one.... And who carries two books to lunch!? The falafel was relatively good, hard... More

We came here 2 nights in a row as we enjoyed the food so much. Although the service is slow it is because the food is prepared freshly on the premises. The passionfruit juice is a highlight. The menu was fairly large but a lot was not available either die to off season or the fact the server was also... More

Jinas take a bit longer to prepare the food, but the tastes were fantastic. Not on the beach, but the ambiance was still very nice.

If it was' for all the other positive reviews, I wouldn't have been disappointed. But given our expectations, this place was barely above average. The food was good. Not bad. And not great either. We finished what we ordered, but weren't craving for more. The service was friendly, but extremely slow. Despite being the last people sitting at the place,... More

We loved our three curries, rice, coconut sambal and papadums here. All made fresh and served with pride! Pretty little setting too.

Excellent, tasty vegetarian food in a relaxed garden setting. A good range of vegetarian and vegan food with excellent cocktails and yummy desserts. Well priced. Would recommend.
