Food is middling at best...all curries/gravies tasted pretty much the same. I've had better North Indian food. Service was excellent. Not inexpensive...in the range of Rs. 5,000 per person (including alcohol).

Jamavar (JAMAA-VAR) is Leela's restaurant that primarily serves Indian cuisine namely mughlai. Open sit-out is one that makes for a better experience primarily due to the greenry, view, breeze from its well maintained gardens (miniature forest if I may say). So the ambience is spot-on. Our order - 1) Gosht Chaanp Tajdar (for starters) - Lamb rack beautifully cooked, mildly... More

My second meal here - as good as previously. It was a business dinner and staff were helpful in arranging a platter of starters followed by individual mains. Good wine although expensive.

Having eaten a good meal in their new London restaurant, I thought that the quality would be similar in Bangalore, or hopefully even better, sadly it wasn't and the dish that I had lacked any exciting flavour and was expensive.

The ambience is awesome. Food taste is superb. In fact the food taste was a pleasant shock and i complimented the staff as well. A must go for a real real special occasion. Given a choice i would return to this place but one must ensure you are with your loved ones.

We had 2 dinners at the Jamavar during a business trip to Bangalore. On both occasions we opted for options from the set 3 course dinners. Both were excellent with a fantastic variety of dish and Veg & Non-veg options. The service is top notch and the setting in the gardens is delightful. Excellent.

Really nice and grand ambience, consistent with the theme of the Leela Palace. Starters were yummy and the main course was good too. Personally I like the Royal Afghan at ITC Windsor better in terms of food. But this one still is a good bet if you are willing to go for a nice experience and willing to pay a... More
