“Absolutely Fantastic!!! An Amazing Taste Experience!!!!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

I have now had the pleasure to eat at this wonderful restaurant 3 times. The food was absolutely wonderful! I always say that I will try something else, but the Jambalaya Stew is what I always end up ordering. Portions are extremely generous. Denise was an absolute pleasure and Kevin certainly takes pride in the kitchen. He stopped to chat with us for some time. I would recommend this eatery in a heartbeat. The Two Oceans wine goes lovely with the spicy dinners.
Thanks a million for an amazing place to eat, you certainly can't go wrong with the freshness, the portions, the pricing and the wonderful friendly owners. Thanks again!

“Absolutely amazing; best restaurant in London!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Beyond amazing food, atmosphere, and staff! I have had the pleasure of going to Jambalaya several times, and I have not once been less than completely satisfied with the experience. There is a fantastic selection of dishes -- including many for vegetarian and vegan diners, as well many irresistible meat laden dishes! The staff is beyond amazing, and the food is all prepared fresh from scratch when you order. I have ordered a different dish every time I have visited, and I can't pick a favourite as they are all to die for! I would never hesitate to recommend this restaurant, and I believe you haven't experienced London dining until you visit Jambalaya.

Great restaurant with plenty of vegan/vegetarian options. Try the Jerk Pad Thai, plantains, and curry roti.

“Nothing but flavor & freshness!”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

Been a couple times now and we always order something different. The most recent we ordered the specials, I had this smooth & silky broccoli soup with some great spice & fresh corn bread. with the Hush Puppies, salad & sweet potato fries with homemade spices. Can't wait to go back and try something else. Always new specials & everything is made fresh!
Very comfortable & warm environment with a wonderful & attentive hostess/waitress. The server informed us that all food spice levels can be adjusted for those who like a little or allot. She was informative on every dish we inquired about on the menu. This is the only restaurant that I know of that you get to meet the chef after your meal and let him know how it was; FANTASTIC & flavorful again. Family owned restaurant, no chain here ... If you want bland food this place is not for you! If you want "fast food" keep in mind that every dish is made fresh to order but will not be disappointed with a lil' wait.
Hidden gem, will definitely return again & again :)
