Good value, warm service, central location and excellent food make Jai Bharat one of my favourite restaurants in the Netherlands.

“Indian food as it is supposed to be”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

We made reservation for five. Upon entering Jai Barat, we found only two tables for two (separated as well) not taken.
The owner miraculously arranged half of the restaurant to accommodate our party of five within no time.
The food is almost too good to be true. It would take me half the page to describe all the flavors and textures that you sample. You can choose for mild (read spicy) or spicy (be prepared) or true Indian (call the fire brigade for immediate assistence). The ambiance is friendly and good. The service trails behind due to poor communication skills of the waitresses.
Nevertheless highly recommended

“Exceptional Indian food in a fantastic location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

We only recently discovered Jai Bharat and have been 3 times in the past month (once with company from the UK), and we now consider it one of our favorite restaurants in town. This is Indian food as it should be, nuanced and delicate, a symphony of spices. Everything is delicious, from the papadums & homemade chutneys to the flavorful tandoori chicken, fluffy garlic nan, heavenly Biryani and saag paneer. All served with care by friendly staff in a tastefully decorated restaurant with fully-stocked bar just across from St. Bavo. The homemade Kulfi (ice cream with almonds and coconut) is a must, so refreshing and delicious...the perfect compliment to an excellent meal. Our friend from the UK said it was the best Indian food he'd ever eaten. Highly recommended.
