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.

Lovely find in this great location.
Food just as Indian street food should be- fresh, bursting with flavours and each dish perfectly cooked. Already visited twice it’s that good. Cafe type seating area wasn’t our preference but it has a really nice restaurant area also which has a nice relaxed atmosphere.Would definitely recommend.

Ordered our starters mine didn’t show when asked where it was they said sorry they had none of that left and offered to cook me something else my 3 friends then waited for me to finish my new starter to catch up with the mains so we could eat together.
My sister and I ordered the same with hers asked to be cooked mild when they arrived I asked which was which they looked at each other puzzled returned them to the kitchen then came back with red chillis on top of one and said that was the spicy one ?
Both dishes tasted the same heat wise so they basically threw chillis on one.
When the bill arrived there was a starter dish on there we had ordered but never received which they deducted from the bill.
This was our 3rd visit to Jajoos the 1st 2 times being great on this occasion did not recognise any of the staff ?

My new favourite curry house in Manchester! I've struggled to find lamb chops as good as Tayyabs in London, but these are a very good alternative, could do with maybe a little more marinade but such thick and juicy chops, really impressed.

The lamb ragda and chicken chettinad were both awesome, as was the lamb biryani. Can't wait for my second trip back.

Gamma Ray on tap is also brilliant.

My new favourite restaurant. The food was mega tasty, we had a meat-eater, a vegetarian and vegan all equally satisfied with their order, and there's a good but not overwhelming choice of ales to wash it down with.
Staff were fresh faced, friendly, helpful and seemed genuinly interested in how we found the food. It's a good spot for sitting outside too, can't wait to eat here again.

Excellent food and really lovely, quick service. Highly recommend! Get there early though as I think the beers can run out and the service looked like it slowed down a bit as the evening went on. Absolutely loved our visit and can’t wait to go back

We were the 2nd table seated just after they opened so it was quiet but perfect for me and my daughter. The waiter was so polite and attentive and the food, incredible! Curry is one of our favourite foods and we were pleasantly surprised as to the amount of food and how beautifully cooked it was. The sauces were packed with flavour and the roti, amazing. Enough for a little doggy bag to bring home too. I will definitely be back. Bravo!!!

We’ve been meaning to go here for a while but pandemic and all that… It was worth the wait. The lamb chops were the highlight of a great meal and the beer list is really good. The staff were lovely as well.

Food was lovely, service good but had to wait ages for some missing food even though they were not very busy. Music was too loud and conversation was impossible, so everyone was shouting.

The waitress didn’t seem to know an awful lot about the craft beers the starters were very nice very good the main course if you order chips be aware they are not chips there something else that is very hard the lamb shank was poor not much meat on it I like the tendons and seeing you wasn’t pleasant not the best value for money I’ve ever had

Ambience and welcome were great.
Took a while to order food initially.
Starters started coming out after being chased, approximately 1hr 15 after arriving.
1 starter took 15-20 minutes further to come out.
Aloo starter described as potatoes, peppers and onions, marinated and cooked. Arrived as potatoes with some spices.
Chicken starter appeared to not be marinated.
Booking states that 90 minutes will be allocated for the booking for or less people. This had run out before the final starter had arrived.
Complaint to manager came up with "starter policy is they will come out when ready". Fine, but shouldn't take 45 minutes to come out.

When we received the main courses, the food was excellent. However the length of time overall that the food took to come out meant that we had to rush to leave.

Our waiter also had his mask under nose the whole time. A few times adjusting it, to reset it just under his nose.

Overall, whilst the food was great, I won't be returning to JaJoo.
