Jamie's has a lot going for it. First, and most importantly, Jamie is ever present in the kitchen, ensuring that the food is consistent and as described on the menu. Secondly, the service is fantastic. I am asked by my waiter if I am ready for my main course to be served. A first! Thirdly, the ambience is chilled: music is muted and lighting is subdued. Wonderful!
Now, the food. I call this a bistro because the food is tasty and lacks those pretensions that let down most of the other so called 'fine dining' joints. In no way is the term 'bistro' disparaging. On the contrary., I am addicted to their quesadilla with shitake mushrooms and smoked mozarella. Jamie will tweak your dish to your taste. I prefer my salsa spicy and he even provided me with an Indian version of sour cream when I had suggested that the dish would benefit from it. My partner loves Jamie's pot roast and I heard the crunch of my friend's tempura dish from across the table.
Really, the 'bang for your buck' element extends to the drinks when a small beer is 50 rupees and a main is aorund 270 rupees. Clever pricing; intuitive and creative dishes consistently provided and service that many a 5 star would covet. Love it!
