the ambiance is g8, veg guju food is good too! We ordered Pizza, Hakka Noodles and was so spicy and did mention no spice, oh god, what a disaster! Never order out of the way in a new place,
Delicious vegetarian indian food that is oh so cheap!
Come here if you would like to taste authentic indian vegetarian food. Don’t expect flash decor but expect good quality food. The pav Bhaji is delicious and so is the dabeli roti. They also make packets of Indian snacks. It’s also not very expensive expect to pay about $20-$25 two people
Thanks to some well written, informative and fairly accurate reviews on the Localist, we went to Jai Jalaram Khaman knowing exactly what to expect. The food was indeed tasty and filling, the service and decor were basic at best, but we knew that already and it all felt like a bit of an adventure. There were photos on the wall and reasonably good descriptions of the dishes in the menu - but we still weren't quite sure what we were going to get.
I dislike going to a restaurant and being fattened up to fatigue on fatty rubbish as you get in many 'Indian' restaurants both here in New Zealand and throughout Europe. There are a number of dishes dubbed 'Indian' that have never existed on the subcontinent. Fortunately for me (and for all of those who know what good Indian food tastes like), there are a few places in Auckland where you can get excellent, healthy and delightful Indian food without straining your pocket too Much. Jai Jalaram is one of these places. Charming in its' minimal decor, comfort and service, solely due to the fact that the food is amazing.
