With a seating capacity of 107 covers split in two different floors, a private dining room that accommodate up to 8 guests plus al fresco tables will provide the perfect setting for a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

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.

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.

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.

We did the tasting menu with the wine pairings and it was fantastic in every way. Super high quality without becoming gimmicky. I saw a review that raised the issue of heat, we did not find that to be a problem at all.

One of the best Indian restaurants in London. My one apiece if advice is to inform the server of the level of chilli you like.

But the food is amazing. The whole menu is.

Lovely ambience, service attentive but not intrusive & food sublime - full of flavour, exquisitely spiced & ‘á point’ as to ‘heat’. Arguably the best cuisine of this kind I have EVER had (and that includes over 40 years’ extensive experience - in Birmingham & Leeds/Bradford, as well as London). I shall DEFINITELY be back!

Overall we enjoyed our meal, the food was delicious and we were guided politely through choices by our server. However, the service was slow and a bit cold and functional which really sums up our reservations about our experience at Jamavar. The tone of the evening was unfortunately set from the beginning when the maitre d' took us through two floors of an all but empty restaurant to a table next to the kitchen doors and then expressed surprise when we asked if there was another, more appealing table available. No surprise to find that there was! This is an expensive restaurant in London's highly competitive restaurant market which we concluded really needs to make its guests feel more welcome in order to justify its prices. We will not hurry back.

Overall the service was poor, not one friendly smile from any of the staff. The maitre’d did not come up to the table once to check everything was ok. The ambience of the restaurant does not feel like fine dining as the tables are very cramped and there is the constant passing of people next to your table. The only plus side was the food which was decent but would not go back especially for the price.

Food perfect as usual.

However we experienced what could only be described as the worse bit of service ever.

The tall bald guy with a stern look didn’t stop bothering us, every time we where speaking he was interrupting us.

When it came to ordering 3 of the party wanted the tasting menu and 1 the a la carte only to be told that wasn’t possible.

We where told that we all had to eat from the same menu...

How strange for an establishment of this kind.

When we explained that the person who wanted to eat from the a la carte menu was choosing to due to dietary requirements that the tasting menu could not cater for he still just said it was not possible.

We then decided to slightly part the tables and 2 of us have a la carte and 2 have the tasting menu, and the waiter said that isn’t possible as he has seen us part the tables and that we are together.

Once we had all ordered and eaten from the a la carte menu the waiter even tidied up around a colleague who was still eating...

Such a strange turn of events and such a shame as none of us will eat here again.

Overall the food is great this was my second visit in a month just think that this individual needs some training.

Everyone can have a bad day but this was beyond a joke.

Was he having a bad day? Or was he just pushing us to have the tasting menu as it’s the most expensive meal on the menu?

Who knows...

We were shown to the best table in the house (I had requested a romantic table) by a smiling member of staff. Generally every waiter, the sommelier etc. were very helpful and made us feel special. We ordered plenty of seafood (the fried crab is very interesting). Cocktails were also delicious. Much recommend Jamavar for a date night!
