I looked for Asian food when i stayed in Beirut and this restaurant came up on top in triadviser- I dont know why. First, its not really a restaurant and more a hole in the wall with only one or two tables inside. The rest of the guests have to sit outside on the street. In my case, it started... More

My food experience was great, big satisfying portions & very tasty! You even have a live show as the Chefs prepare your food in the kitchen which is also the dining room. Kind of weird, but it works at Jai & the Staff is very friendly Only negative is the seating because there is only 1 table!

I love food and I love Asian food especially, but Jai has a special place in my heart. The place is super casual (you literally eat in the kitchen or on little tables on the sidewalk) but there's always a beautiful little bouquet of flowers on the table and everything about it makes you feel like you're at home. I... More

Fast service, fresh flavours, great food. They put their own modern twist on the dishes and use strong flavours. Reasonable pricing

I ordered a delivery from this well-known restaurant and was disappointed. I requested the dish without spiciness but it came spicy. Moreover the items arrived lukewarm
