    Great restaurant and food but very slow service at lunchtime. Too busy and understaffed. The staff were not attentive. The music was too loud and so the patrons were all speaking extra loud and it became hard to converse and difficult to enjoy the food and restaurant.

    Went here for Father’s Day, following a previous visit which went well. However, on this occasion the service fell far below the standard I expect when attending a fine dining restaurant in Mayfair. Several mistakes were made with our order, including starters that were missing, incorrect items being sent to our table and items entirely being forgotten about. In addition, simple requests like table water had to be requested multiple times before they were tended to. These are basic things that really should not happen multiple times. The food was great, when it did arrive. So it’s a huge shame the service fell so far below what I would expect. Overall hugely disappointed. I will not be visiting again and I certainly would not recommend to anyone. Particularly when the restaurant includes service charge on your bill after it has fallen so far below the required threshold.

    The food is consistently good at Jamavar’s, where I have been dining almost since it opened. I believe that the prix fixe lunch menu is not well- advertised anymore and has increased in price over the years (now £38 pp 3-course lunch), but is with no hesitation well worth it. The food is of course excellent, but so is the service and ambience. Jamavar is one of the best restaurants in London, certainly the best Indian restaurant, and I highly recommend it. Check it out when you are in Mayfair - you will not regret it!

    The food was delicious, all the different curries like goat curry, prawn curry and chicken tikka masala were outstanding, the only drawback was that the tandoori cod was undercooked as the middle parts were still cold . The portions were large, with high quality ingredients hence justifying the higher prices

    Very disappointing overall with particularly poor service. Given the upscale nature of the restaurant being pressured to leave after just an hour at the table is unacceptable. The food was an interesting mix but was average at best. Will not return.

    We visited this restaurant three yearas ago and we were blown away by the food quality and the approach they brought to indian cuisine. However, in our recent visit, we noticed that the food quality decreased and the price we paid does not justify what we were offered (esp the butter chicken). The service quality(speed and staff) is still good but their approach is more like "order, eat, finish and go". It was disappointing for us as this used to be one of our favs in London.

    JamavarResponded on 25 February 2022Hi erene Please accept my sincere apologies, I'm extremely concerned with your feedback as it doesn't represent the standard of service you rightly expect from us. I have shared your feedback for immediate corrective action. Our endeavour is always to provide guests with the highest levels of service & assistance.

    My lunch at Jamavar, similar to the other times I have eaten there, was outstanding. The service, quality of food and ambience is over-the-top near-perfect. The only slight issue on this visit is that the entry door was not completely closing, and this meant a rather cold draft would reach our table (middle of ground floor main dining room) from time to time. Needless to say, it was also an unusually cold day for London. Even though the food is delicious, the 2-, 3- or 4-course fixed price lunch menu makes it outstanding value, too. I cannot say enough positive things about Jamavar, perhaps the best Indian restaurant in London.

    Such a disappointing experience. I Took my husband for he’s birthday. We ordered the Game Tasting Menu. The Game was all extremely over cooked, therefore dry & chewy. The Spices used were too hot & did not compliment the Game at all, except the pheasant which was very bland and so dry also overcooked I couldn’t eat it. One of the worst meals I have ever had unfortunately. I’ve been to numerous Indian Michelin star restaurants and this is no comparison. It was awful. The service was attentive and the wine pairing good except the Port with a sweet desert! We came away and could not believe just how poor the standard of the food was. My advice would be to take the Game menu of the menu. The chef is definitely not experienced in cooking game, it’s a shame as a lot of the other food coming out looked good. Also the tables are so close together, it’s hard to get in and out without disturbing the people on the next table. However that does not make up for terrible food we received.

    Having been to Jamavar previously we were a little disappointed with the lack of service and the quality of food. The ambience was too loud you couldn’t hear each other from across the table. Considering other nearby restaurants like Benares this wasn’t value for money.

    We always try to eat at Jamavar during our trips to London. It is consistently excellent. This time we tried their Early Bird dinner (served from 5:30p-6.30p, perfect for pre-theatre). It is a bargain at £35 for 3 courses or £40 for 4 courses. We each chose the Telicherry pepper and garlic soft shell crab for our first course - delicious. For our next course we chose the Malai Stone Bass Tikka and the Adraki Lamb Chop - each a delight. For third course, we ordered the Sindhi Methi Gosht (goat)and the Gucci Labadar (morels, peas and tomatoes), again lovely. Dinner with a glass of wine each, and naan, came to approximately £60 a person…a bargain for such creative and delicious food, that is not on your typical Indian menu. We will definitely return!
