Dr Jajoo is the owner and founder of Jajoo Indian Street Food. His ambition in life was to share his passion of real Indian food and provide a dining experience of authentic Indian cuisine that is healthy, often plant based and packed with flavour. He took his inspiration from the simple regional street foods of India which are credited by some as shaping the country’s food culture.

Street food in India is eaten at the roadside by all economic classes and cuts across barriers of class, religion, gender and ethnicity. Dr Jajoo firmly believes in this principal that eating food together is one of life’s simple yet memorable pleasures to be enjoyed and treasured by all.

    Food excellent service pleasant but disjointed even though manager was there We were seated and water glasses put on table but no water offered 3 young waiting staff but nobody took drinks order despite only 2 tables in Drinks were ordered but took ages and arrived in two batches .the waiter quite frankly didn't know much about drinks Nobody took food order until I asked the staff member behind the bar who was om his phone The restaurant only had 2 other tables occupied Food was excellent To include a 10% service charge is fine but please offer the service to go with it!

    Fantastic night. It was a long overdue get together for 6 of us so we had plenty to catch up on. Service was good but there was a very long wait in between courses. However the food was superb. The Dhal was my favourite. Very rich but delicious. The spicy paneer tacos and prawn momos were mouth wateringly good also. By far the best indian I've had in a long time.

    Service was very slow, took half an hour for a pint. Food varied a lot in quality, from just okay to quite nice. Absolutely zero atmosphere because of the really bright lights and super quiet music.

    Food good, service terrible - slow, disorganised and at times just really very odd. An example - we tried to order mains, but the waitress just walked away after one of our party had ordered. Didn’t come back until after the starters had arrived. Then they forgot to put through the mains so we waited ages. And they really struggled to put dishes on the table (literally found this difficult). Like I said odd. A shame because the food was really lovely.

    Lovely staff, food amazing. Wasn't sure what was going on with seating in main area as half the restaurant was closed off and in the dark. This is where all the character of the building is and where people like to sit and people watch. As it was in the dark, the restaurant looked closed. It was a bit chilly but this could easily be rectified. The cocktails were delicious, but we were not offered coffees after our meal. Lots of missed opportunities.

    Excellent service and food from Jajoo. Their lamb chops and curries are the things I've been dreaming about since I first went - so full of flavour and the sauce is rich, thick and the exact right amount of spicy. Drinks were very reasonable and service was excellent - Joe and his colleagues should be very happy with the service we provide because we certainly were!

    This place is quirky with great service from great staff & the food is absolutely belting! Street-food food with a twist, 5* taste! 5* value & 5* service. My self & my partner had an exceptional time at this restaurant. The food was super tasty. We arrived early to the venue & the staff happily adjusted there table plans to fit us in. My partner had a cocktail & commented how good it was too! Support a local venue & we can guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

    It was my first time here and I was pleasantly surprised. Lots to choose from on the menu, we had 3 small plates and then a curry, rice and naan to share. The portions were very generous and everything was delicious, especially the Momos and the chicken curry dish we had plus the garlic naan. The service was fantastic too. I’ll be back again!
