“Best Indian restaurant in the south west”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012 via mobile

Had tried so many different Indian restaurants in WSM, Bristol and beyond. Finding Jaan stopped the search. Consistently good food, quality ingredients, and excellent service. And food not only tasty - but always piping hot and served on hot plates. Marvellous. Look no further if you appreciate flavour and quality.

“An Indian Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

Set just outside of Weston-super-Mare town centre, but still within walking distance from the beach and local guesthouses, Jaan is simply a wonderful Indian restaurant that will always be one of my favourites.

Kwaz and his team of helpful and friendly staff really offer a wide variety of dishes to suit all tastes, including traditional favourites and many chef specials. I especially like the vegetarian dishes on offer here, often choosing either a Mushroom Biriani or Chana Bhuna.

One of my favourite things about Jaan is the cosy setting and the relaxed atmosphere. This restaurant is ideal for couples, families and parties and is a pleasure to visit time and time again.

If you are looking for a tasty Indian meal that is good value for money, then Jaan is well worth a visit.

“A great curry!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012 via mobile

Not the spiciest, set your mouth on fire Indian food you'll ever have (although I'm sure it can be arranged on request) but Jaan manage to show a curry is about flavour, not spice. Don't get me wrong, it's still hot, the balance is just spot on.

Set only just out of town, Jaan's still easily walkable from the centre and an even quicker walk from the sea front and the numerous guest houses around. It's priced much the same as every other Indian restaurant in Weston, except the quality is much, much better here. Staff are friendly and surroundings/atmosphere just what you want for an Indian meal.
Nice range of dishes with all the usual favourites and some more obscure chef specials. This is exactly what having a curry should be like. Great food in a contemporary yet somehow still traditional setting!

“Excellent Value and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

Lovely little Indian restaurant in the back streets of Weston Super Mare not far from the beach, town and guesthouses. We made no booking, yet got a table straight away. The phone was busy though, so plenty of take-away or delivery orders were coming in. The staff were very attentive and the atmosphere not noisy and the music at the right volume. The main courses are definitely generous, we couldn't eat a starter or dessert. Afterwards, they bought us slices of oranges with hot napkins to freshen up and After Eights. Cannot fault the service or fresh food.

“Top Quality Indian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

We managed to get a table on a very busy Saturday evening so booking is definately recommended. Unfortunately we did have a rather long wait for our meal & although very polite, the staff did not come back & ask us for more drinks or to apologise for the wait. However, when the food arrived, it was definately worth the wait. We are big curry eaters & this one was definately up there with the best - a really good quality curry with great flavour.
