Insider Tips

  • You will get better North Indian food in Delhi but the South Indian food can be astonishing
  • There is a semi-private area at the front of the restaurant which is great for large groups. Drop the name of Chef Purshottam, the Leela's South Indian masterchef
  • Ask for dishes cooked to his recipes

Critic Rating

Vir's Verdict Chief Editor & Lead Critic


The Leela Group's Indian restaurants suffer from an identity crisis. Many of the chefs are trained by Mrs Leela Nair, so the chain has the best Malayali food of any Indian hotel group. But the restaurants also have to cater to the demand for North Indian food, which makes their menus a bit of a mishmash. Despite these contradictions, Jamavar, which is small and intimate, usually manages to strike a fair balance between North and South.

Very good experience

Jamavar is an Indian food restaurant located at the Leela Hotel in Chanakyapuri. Expectedly, the prices are high but the food and experience make up for it.

Food and service need improvement.

We were a group of 9 women and 2 men and I can speak for the vegetarian food which was very chilli-hot and had no flavours.The naan was chewy and hard and when we questioned it we were told they make it that way! The roomali roti was very good. Sadly the service could be improved as the young waiter tried to slide the quarter plate to the other side of the table instead of going around, the waitress said she couldn’t cut the roomali roti into smaller pieces and the general attitude was take it or leave it. Not expected from Leela Palace!

Amazing taste and great service

The ambiance, speed and the quality of the service and the taste of the dishes were absolutely perfect. Quality and quiet ambience for a solo traveler and/or couples. Staff is very polite and helpful. The cost of a meal for one including a starter (i.e. Dal), nan bread, main dish and drinks is about INR 3,000 to 3,500. I would highly recommend the Butter Chicken as main dish
