Review: Jamjar Diner, Bandra

After a sucessful outpost in Andheri, Jamjar Diner has opened in Bandra replacing Moshe’s on Hill Road. It is quite missable if you are not sure of the location as the entrance is tiny and it’s located on the first floor.

Let us start with the positives first, the ambiance is really tastefully done. There is a jukebox right at the entrance and the interiors are bright and colourful. There are tiny things that caught our eye like the plants around, the little knick knacks that were placed in the walls and the bar area! Unfortunately our excitement was short lived. As we entered, we were made to wait for a good 15 minutes as the waiter said there was no table for 2 available. There were 4 tables empty and it was 7 PM but he refused to give us those as they were bigger tables (Tables for 4). We asked him to shift us onto a table for two once it gets empty but he still bluntly refused and asked us to wait. Not too soon, but we got the table after a brief argument with him (we waited for a table for 2).

Once we were seated, we went through the menu. Quite an extensive menu, we ordered for the following: the Chargrilled Chicken Skewers, Peri Peri Fries and the Burnt Garlic Alfredo Pasta. Our order took really long, again, the service was super slow.
The Chargrilled Chicken Skewers were overcooked and hence chewy. The Peri Peri Fries were fine and came with a dip. The Burnt Garlic Alfredo Pasta was great although the garlic flavour was hardly there, not too different from a regular Alfredo pasta.

The portion sizes were decent for two and the pricing was great but the overall quality of food didn’t seem impressive. They really need to work on their food consistency and train their staff to treat customers better!

Review: JamJar Diner

  
You will wonder why the place is called JamJar Diner until you’re served your drinks in cute little jam jars. *no kidding*
Located at Versova, where there is a queue of eateries trying to impress the locals, JamJar Diner is one of the most recent contenders. 



The little blue door that leads you inside this restaurant can be quite deceiving. Once you enter, you realize that the place is spacious, divided into two floors and has a terrace seating. We chose the terrace seating and simply loved the breezy, comfortable ambience.

The menu looks interesting but limited. The bar menu has all the cocktails with a twist. We called for the Red Sangria and the White Sangria. Although these sangrias were full of flavour, we would rather opt for the classic sangrias, the twist was too twisted for our taste buds. The Caprioska that we ordered next was stiff and perfect.


Coming to the food, we first called for the Nachos, and soon a huge portion of crispy tortillas with generous toppings arrived at our table. Absolutely delicious, we would totally recommend this! Next, we tried the Shrimp Popcorn. This was also quite good, makes for a great snack with drinks. Lastly we had the Chicken burger. The burger was passable as the patty could have been bigger and we missed some extra cheese!


For desserts we tried the Rocky Road – good, with large chocolate pieces that made it rather comfortable to eat, Mango Cheesecake – disappointing, we definitely think they need to work on this and the Ice-Cream Cookie Sandwich – this was the best out of the lot. 

Overall, JamJar Diner, with its impressive interiors, is a great place for a couple of drinks and some finger food. Skip, if you are looking forward to have an elaborate meal.
