So far the best north Indian cuisine

I'd been to jamavar with my friends. One of the very nicest things about jamavar I liked is the quality of food, the flavours were amazing especially the Dal jamavar. The ambience gives a royal look. Hats off to Yadav ji (n team) & Abhishek Das Gupta who were continuously supportive in all aspects.

The restaurant setting is quite grand, befitting a palace dining hall. We were given a choice of being seated either near the garden or inside the A/C hall, the garden setting looked more inviting to us. I felt the tables were placed quite close to each other, but during the course of the dinner we didn't get disturbed so not... More

When arguing a case in the movie Philadelphia, Denzel Washington allegorizes 'Do you agree that a bologna sandwich is a satisfactory meal, wheareas caviar and champagne, roast duck and baked Alaska might be considered a delightful meal'. The context may have been a whole lot different, but what stands between good food and bad food is the mood that a... More

My colleague and I had dinner there our first night in India. The menu had an expansive selection. It was almost hard for us to choose. We ordered the chicken skewers as a starter, delish and tender. We got one veggie dish and another chicken dish with naan and basmati rice. All I can say is that everything was good,... More

Set in the grounds of the majestic Leela Palace hotel, this is a lovely location to eat outside, but also has grand indoor dining. Attentive staff and nice food plus the location make it a memorable experience. Probably not cheap (I wasn't paying), familiar favourites for UK curry fans and suitable for large groups. Recommended

Never felt so disappointed and uncomfortable during a meal! The staff there, makes sure it's a horrible experience for you. Went there on business lunch wherein we requested for - mutton nihari, chicken biriyani (South Indian style), and naan. First observation- absolutely empty restaurant! Give it was a weekday but at lunch hour I still expect few tables taken here... More

We have eaten here on a number of occasions and this place is always amazing. I wish the chefs would move to London!!! Never had a bad menu however the food is expensive for Indian and the prices are like eating in a high end London restaurant. The food and the service here are great!
