Finally, a new eatery which I truly love for its name, décor and most importantly, food – ‘Jamun’ at Lodi Colony market (with the famous Guppy as its neighbour). As I entered the restaurant, pleasing vibes of a simple abode, probably of Southern India, with accents of Jamun palette, was very welcoming. One look at the menu and you realize, there you are, to celebrate regional diversity and rich heritage of Indian cuisine as you have the choice of authentic dishes from Kashmir to the Deccan. I started my meal with Kashmiri delicacy ‘Bharwa Gucchi’ with mint chutney. It was delicious as tandoor roasted morels were stuffed nicely with water chestnuts and button mushrooms. Next came ‘Ratalu Ki Tikki’ as recommended by Chef Picu, roasted shakarkandi and chana dal with almond crust. Do not miss his signature dish from Covelong, Tamil Nadu - ‘Karuveppilai Curry Leaf Specials’ - wok tossed prawn or lobster with curry leaves, shallots and spices. Mains too have an extensive choice where ‘Shukto’ from West Bengal, 'Nadru Yakhni' from Kashmir and 'Sadhya Avial' from Kerala stand out for vegetarians. 'Chicken Xacutti' (Chef’s Picu family recipe from Goa), 'Jamun’s Butter Chicken' and 'Lamb Paaya Curry' are some of the highlights from a non-vegetarian section. There is a fully loaded bar. One must try their cocktails like 'Jamun Old Fashion' and 'Gin & Tea Punch'; mocktails like 'Jamun Kaanji' and 'Royal Cider'. Check out their small retail space, with organic and artisanal selective produce from various regions of India.
Jamun, nestled in the luxurious confines of Lodhi Colony, South Delhi, is an elegant eatery serving a Nouveau Indian cuisine. From uniquely prepared food to gorgeously done interiors, everything about this place oozes class and sophistication. As you enter the restaurant, the modish and pleasing vibe will have you enthralled. The place will simply transport you to a Southern India verandah-style bistro with huge arched windows, terracotta-tiled canopy, knotted cane furniture and vines of gorgeous bougainvillea adorning the walls.
Jamun is one place in Delhi that truly celebrates regional diversity and the rich heritage of Indian cuisine by serving authentic and nostalgic recipes from Kashmir to the Deccan. The menu is quite fascinating offering weekend breakfasts, lunch thalis and an assortment of tea-time delicacies.
If you are visiting the place for the first time, you can kick start your meal with their Bharwan Gucchi with Mint Chutney. This Kashmiri delicacy is made from tandoor-roasted morels, stuffed with water chestnuts and button mushrooms. The Ratalu Ki Tikki, made from roasted shakarkand and channa daal is also drool-worthy. Their signature dish belonging to the Tamil Nadu cuisine named Karuveppilai Curry Leaf Special is a delight for all seafood lovers. The well-prepared wok tossed prawns or lobster is cooked to perfection with the finest ingredients. From the main course, items like Kerala Raw Mango Curry, Shukto, Jamun’s Butter Chicken, Chicken Vindaloo, Raan with Korma Gravy and Goan Curry stand out.
Apart from excellent food, Jamun also offers a fully stocked-up bar. You can choose from the extensive beverages list that includes cognac & brandy, vodka, gin, tequila, single malts and rum.
Because of the mounting absence of traditional Indian dining recipes from Delhi’s fast-growing restaurant culture, the place witnesses a cult, looking to try the full menu. Also, with special breakfasts served during the weekends, Jamun remains essentially packed by food connoisseurs. This makes the overall vibe and atmosphere of the place very lively and cheerful. If you plan to visit the restaurant, do not forget to pre-book your table to avoid long standing queues. At Eazydiner, you can locate some interesting and pocket-friendly deals to enrich your dining experience.
