“Fantastic Indian food”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great food at very reasonable prices. For an unbelievable deal they do a set meal on a Sunday where you can get a mountain of food for about £11 a head. Their food is notably different as no sign of bright, shiny, luminous colours that you just know are not good for you. Their butter chicken is to die for. Enjoy!

“Sunday Banquet”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Been to Jashans lots of times through the week and Fri-Sat but never been in on a Sunday until 17th March.

Brilliant value for money, between 3 of us, 3 starters, 4 mains, 2 rice and a nan for 30 odd punds, amazing!

Food was superb as ever and the staff just as friendly on a Sunday as any other day of the week!

Couldnt eat anywhere near what we had and the staff were more than happy to bag up the leftover curry, rice and nan for us to take home, FOC too!!

Really have to try here if you're a fan of good Indian food!

“Vrery good BUT”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We have been to the restaurant a few times now and have always enjoyed the meal, and always leave a tip for the staff, on talking to the young waiter at the weekend I was told that the management takes all the tips for themselves, the staff don’t see a penny of the tips that they earned this is all wrong, I’m all for rewarding people that work hard. I don’t think we will be back for this reason

We are very disappointed that a member of our staff has lied to you about the tips that our staff members receive. Our tips are shared out equally between all our members of staff and we do not know why a member of our team has lead you to believe otherwise. We do hope you come back to Jashans so we can set the record straight, so you can see that tips are shared out equally between staff members and that this has always been the case.

Regards

Jashans Management

“Please try if you're in Edinburgh”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We decided to eat here after seeing the reviews whilst on a short break to Edinburgh. First of all the service was excellent, the manager/head waiter engaged in conversation and was genuinely interested in hearing that we'd been to the zoo that day. He wasn't overbearing or intrusive just a really friendly guy. We ordered the banquet which was reasonably priced and the food was excellent. It was tasty, hot and the portions were of a decent size. We do like big protions and we couldn't finish our main and my partner couldn't manage the dessert!. Only problem was we live in Chester and it's too far to go there on a regular occassion!

“Mother's Day March 2013”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

I had booked a meal for four for Mother's Day, at the last moment my son and daughter-in-law and two grand kids decided to join us, I called ten mins before leaving and the staff were very happy to accommodate the change in reservation. The banquet was really lovely and is available Sunday all day. Every bit of food was eaten. We sat for most of the afternoon and were made very welcome, the staff were very attentive from start to finish. They were also very understanding with our little VIPs.

We will revisit and although I would recommend this restaurant I really want to keep it a secret not to make it change. Well done to all the staff
