I love it when chefs experiment and invite lucky customers along for the adventure. This particular evening at Jay's was themed 'Portuguese Indian Fusion', a 5-course menu with wine pairing. What at first seemed like an odd culinary combo, turned out to be an explosion...More

I went to Jay's a few times in the past. It's a popular Expats place. The food was good but not great. Service is always friendly. Could be a bit slow when it's busy. Went back this week, the kitchen quality really improved. The mango...More

I've now been here 11 times in the past 9 months and it is a rare and wonderful experience. It is seldom to find a place that obsesses about customer service on this level. If one of the waiters isn't living up to Jay's standards...More

A very inhospitable place. They pretended to be full because I had a baby. This was a pathetic show. Now it is on my black list.

ABOUT At Johann by Jay which has relocated to St. Johanns-Ring 34, we offer delicious, fresh and authentic Indian food in a unique setting that combines European styling with Asian hospitality! When I first decided to open Jay's Indian Food back in December 2000, I wanted to create a new dining experience in Indian cuisine. With the opening of my new restaurant my first priority was to get away from the flock wallpaper and dim lighting that you would normally associate with the local curry house, and create a clean bright image, whilst keeping a warm and friendly feel. Equally as important is the service our customers can expect when dining with us, together with the general ambience of the restaurant. We want to create a pleasant informal atmosphere whilst retaining the highest standards of service.
