Fish soup curry fried fish sweet dishes thi items and several items were excellents.
Staff was unparallel in talking to us and guiding.
Illuminations were apt and attractive.
Soup was cold. It should have been hot or walm.
Fish soup was special in its taste. The taste was unique and not available globally.
It was heavenly.

“Posh Indian restaurant ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

Came to this restaurant dressed casually for a nice Indian dinner. Was blown away by the service and lovely ambience and decor! The wait staff were very attentive and brought us unlimited papadums while we waited for our entrees and mains. Very professional manner used to serve the food. Delicious Indian food! We had the vegeterian biryani which was one of the best I've ever had! Will definitely come back here if I visit Mumbai again and dress better! Be prepared to part with some $$ here.

“An experience to remember”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013

It was breakfast time and we decided to try JAMAVAR at the LEELA Hotel in ANDHERI EAST on CHRISTMAS DAY.
WELCOMED with smiling faces and an enticing AMBIENCE which makes one feel more HUNGRY.
As one enters Hotel Leela, one is mesmerised by the elegance and decor, and as we were guided to the restaurant JAMAVAR, it was not like any other breakfast, as, the spread was wonderful and we felt that we had made the right decision.
Variety of Juices, doughnuts, dosas, eggs made to order, parathas,with idli, vada and other items thrown in.
It was a sumptuous breakfast that we had and the Captain and the staff made our DAY.
The preparations by the chef were excellent and it was made to order breakfast
we then decided that JAMAVAR would be the place to have breakfast once in 2 weeks

“Pricey but good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013 via mobile

I have dined here numerous times over the last four years and the standards have been consistently high.
Being the flagship Indian restaurant at the Mumbai Leela, the service is attentive and detailed.
I particularly enjoy their curries where the gravies are more complex due to a full compliment of spices and herbs. My particular favorites include their lobster curry and also their crab meat starter.
Prices are a tad more expensive than good Indian restaurants downtown, but you pay for the sophistication.

“For special occasions only”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

Considering the price I would visit less often. The food was excellent, although the tandoori roti was toasted like a papad. Flavours were authentic. I tested them by ordering one dish from Kashmir and one from Kerala. They were both perfect. Neither the bottled water nor the steamed rice was complimentary. The paan by the door was a nice ending to the meal. The ambience left a little something to be desired. Usually such places are more ornate. I found myself staring at a blank red wall.
