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.

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.

Enjoyed the meal. Food quality excellent. Specail mention for the king prawn kerala which was outstanding and a real winner on the menu. Drinks were good also with a good range of choice. Service whilst the people were friendly was quite slow with a long wait for food and some dishes didn't materialise when they should have, which kept us there longer than we'd have liked. Would I go back? Yeah, no problem.

The food was great as was the service. We loved the decor and ambience too. The only difficulty we did have was that there was no kids options & there wasn’t really anything suitable for him to eat from the main menu. We tend to eat out a lot as a family but we felt it would be more likely we’d only go there again without children which won’t be that frequent. It’s a shame really as we live so close and with it being next to the river it would have been somewhere we would have eaten at quite a lot.

We haven’t eaten at a street food place before so had no frame of reference. It was more like a cafe I ate my starter and my partners came after I finished mine. There was no time or break in between courses.
The drink was not cold and it was weak
Over priced

Food was really tasty, craft beer was great and good value.
Disappointed that Chai or salted Lassi was not available although it was on the menu. These items are a real staple?

Impeccable food and service. I have been here a few times now (and have had a few takeout meals too) and am never disappointed. The food here is superb - as are the cocktails. If you like great food and friendly, attentive service - I would highly recommend a visit.

I have been here now 5 times this month. First time i dined in and taken few takeaways.

The dishes i have tried :

Chicken Momos
Lamb Kati Rolls
Chicken Biryani and i have tried the Lamb Biryani both are fabulous.
Masala chips
Lamb Ragda
Chicken Chettinad

All the dishes were superb and now my favourites.

I have tried many indian street food places and by far Jajoo is the best by far and the best thing i live 2 mins away.

Although table booked a couple of weeks ago , and reconfirmed the day before when we arrived the outside table was not available the waiter had to ask someone to move as they had not booked an outside table , the couple left but if looks could kill as they walked past us my wife felt very uncomfortable at this, the food was good service very slow
Forty minutes for the starters to arrive I had the lamb curry the lamb was dry and tough
My wife had the king prawn curry which was excellent the rest was fine.

Mojito great starters really good Main dishes very disappointing Jackfruit wasn’t edible and when we brought it it the waiters attention he didn’t really express any opinion and only removed one of the two mains from the bill despite both being inedible and uneaten. Both saucesonmaindisjezwrrdspucy but lacked depth and flavour. Nearly £200 spent and£17 service charge automatically taken but only.one dish removed from the bill. Pretty appalling and certainly won’t be returning or recommending
