“Great food and setting, shocking staff”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

The food at Jep's is fantastic and it's a great setting. We eat most of dinners here when we are in Samet, which requires us to walk 30 mins to get there - so yes the food is great. Their Indian dishes are fantastic and have a bit of a Thai twist and are delicious.

However, the staff are shocking and take forever to come to your table and are not at all friendly - actually the opposite. But I would prefer good food over good staff any day.

“Bad food, worse service”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

“Waiters ignore you!”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Went here once but never again!! Food was ok but the waiters tried everything to avoid eye contact for a good twenty minutes! Really blatantly obvious that they couldn't be bothered to serve! We were about to get up and one of them decided to wander over! Tok's next door is much better, great service and great food!
