Old bungalow revamped into a multi concept multi cuisine establishment. The decor is minimalistic but the art on the walls was unusual and eclectic. The smaller rooms of the restaurant can tend to be noisy, though.
The servings are generous. But the food has scope to improve. It borders on being ' ok ' but can become 'wow'.
Do recommend a visit.

Had a couple of friends visiting from Delhi , so I took them to this place on Sunday for lunch .... We had booked a table which is definitely recommended . The guests were impressed by the entrance. And the decor !
Please remember if you have senior citizens , with problem climbing stairs then this is not the place for you .... No lift !
The service takes time ... So be prepared for a long wait , and the menu is eclectic .
Please avoid the prawn cocktails as they are very minuscule portions in tiny glasses ... With shrivelled shrimp !
The non veg kebab platter is good , though portion sizes are small .
In desserts the baked Choco lava cake is tasty with nulen gur Icecream .
Prices are on the costly side ...
A meal for two will be around 1500 !

Visited the restaurant for lunch with my family on New Year's Day. Although they were gracious enough to take a reservation request a day in advance, they were not kind enough to inform that the lunch was only supposed to be Buffet. So we were in for a shock.
The decor and ambiance of the restaurant is nice and has a heritage look to it. They have outdoor seating arrangement too.
Coming to the food, all the offerings were delicious. The veg &non-veg starter tasted superb. Although I was disappointed that I could not taste what I had planned to order as it was only buffet.
But I must say, the staff were a let-down. They behaved like novices and most of the time were looked lost when asked specific questions regarding the food. They also took lot of time to refill the food at the buffet table.
All-in-all, it was a mixed bag experience and I may again visit the restaurant, but not in the next 6 months as I feel the new staff will learn the ropes by that time.

Me & my sister had a very good time at Jhaal Farezi very recently. We had gone without any appointment , but was received very cordially. The Interior was good. the service was excellent. not only were the staff courteous, they were very helpful too while we had selected the menu. the prawn cocktail shots were a delight as were the burra kababs! I would surely recommend the Nolengurer cheese cake... it was a treat to the senses!
