Taking inspiration from the Viceroy’s house of New Delhi, the restaurant will be a glamorous Indian dining room with rainforest emperador marbles, dark timber paneling, gilded walls, and Lutyens inspired furnishings. The space will reflect the vibrant colours and intricate patterns of rare Jamavar shawls, offset with brass accents, hand-cut marquetry, and a sculpted bar that will celebrate the great textile traditions of India.

We booked a table for Saturday evening for 4 people. Then received a call from the restaurant to confirm the reservation which we did.
Upon arriving they showed us to a separate "VIP room" which is completely secluded from the main restaurant. When I asked why it is so and that we want to be in the main floor of the restaurant we were told there is no available table for us. Why would they accept the reservation then and do not disclose about it when calling?
The point of going out was to socialise especially after 3 months of lockdown, not sit alone in a separate room and keep waiting for a waiter to come and take orders.
Moreover, the ladies bathroom in absolutely terrible condition and caused quite a concern if all the areas of the restaurant are in the same condition.
Overall, very questionable experience especially considering quite high price tag.
Thankyou for your feedback, and apologies for your experience. This is being taken very seriously by the team, to ensure it will not happen again.
Very efficient, very upmarket Indian restaurant. Recommended.
It’s was great environment to sit and catch up with old friends.
Amazing like always. Loved new seafood South India menu.
Really good food and good service too. Definitely recommend coming to eat here after a long day of work.!
I always love jamavar but this time we had the tasting menu with the wine pairings. They really rushed the food and wine. As soon as one dish left the table another one appeared and you hadn’t finished the accompanying wine. Really poor in terms of a dining experience - felt like they wanted us to leave in order to fill a table requirement for later. If that’s true it was abundantly clear.
Incredible service - food vary spicy as a standard order
I booked Jamavar for my fiancé’s 30th birthday. This has to be the best service I have ever received. Very attentive, the staff aren’t over worked trying to tend to too many tables at once, they even refold your napkin when you leave the table! The food was excellent, perfect flavour and temperature. The butter chicken is amazing! We shared every dish, definitely filling. The ambiance is just right, not too loud, soft music. I will be back and I will recommend Jamavar to anyone
Fantastic and tasty meal with impeccable service in a beautiful setting
By far the best Indian restaurant in London interms of food, ambience and service. Highly recommend the Old delhi butter chicken and Dum nalli biryani
We were promptly greeted and sat down earlier than our reservation time. Everyone was extremely friendly and accommodating. The food was exactly what we wanted, and exceeded our expectations. It was a fabulous dinner and a fabulous experience and we will absolutely return when we are in town again. Bravo!
We had a new year’s eve lunch at Jamavar and everything was outstanding. Superb food, great service and we were surprised with the set menu that was not only incredible value but incredibly delicious! Jamavar is now going to be a regular visit for us.
As usual, it is a pleasure to eat here!
Très joli endroit
Service top et super accueil
Waiter Avlon Fernandez was outstanding with great suggestions from cocktails to desert. The soft crab & lamb chops were delicious as described but the scallops are “not” part of the featured menus & were exquisite. The salmon, butter chicken, lentil, spinach & naan side dishes were also very well prepared & desserts delicious & well presented (tasting menu). We opted out of wine choices but had a great bottle of Touareg National (Churchill) after superb cocktails & glass of Pinot Grigio. The ambiance was very good (not loud) on a Friday even when packed.
Excellent food! Tried the Lunch special menu !
Very nice and reasonably priced too !
Great service too !
If you're going to ask us to leave as we're still eating our dessert, because you want to turn the table, you should tell us that in advance. Off-the-chart rude, and not worthy of returning. You made more money that night, but you now have us telling everyone not to visit your restaurant. Dumb and short-sighted.
Nali biryani is not nali biryani. I travelled a long way for this.
Also butter chicken was very sweet when told it should be spicy
Yet again a spectacular meal, with fantastic and friendly service. Not inexpensive, but on the basis you get what you pay for, it's still massively underpriced for the whole experience. Already thinking of an excuse to make the next reservation.
One of the best
👍 worth it
Soo good. Can’t wait to be back. Quality of food was devine!
Starters of kid goat and prawns were as good as we have eaten in any of the top end Indian restaurants, decent sized portions as well. We both had the main of lamb shank which again was excellent. Our waiter was well informed and carried out his work in a friendly efficient way. All round a very good meal.
Exceptional service, food and setting. No detail is over-looked. The food is excellent, flavorful drinks and attentive service. I highly recommend this Mayfair gem for lunch or dinner.
Great restaurant - delicious food and excellent service.
This was our second time dining at Jamavar. It is a lovely and cozy restaurant just off Berkeley Square. They had a early dining special until 18:30, with 3 courses for £30 and 4 courses for £40. We chose the 4 course dinner. We started with the Tellicherry and Garlic Soft Shell Crab, followed by Adraki Lamb Chops and Malai Stone Bass Tikka. Both were superb. As a main course, we both chose the Sindhi Methi Gosht (kid goat) and were very pleased. Dessert was the Rhubarb Chuski Falooda.
Overall, some of the best Indian food we have had, either in London or India! With a bottle of wine, dinner came to £70 a person.
Jamavar is a up market dining experience without the uptight atmosphere. It's a chilled and relaxed environment with a very good vibe, it the type of place you'd go to have quality food, we came away really pleased from dining at Jamavar. We'll be heading back to try some of the other dishes they have on the menu.
The atmosphere is really amazing, especially cozy after the sun goes down. A great tasting menu with service that is attentive without being too much. Very well done.
Great service, fabulous food, delicious wine.
