It all started as a delivery kitchen, catering Hamra and surrounding areas with succulent Thai and Indian dishes.
But then people were raving about this place. And the rounded table inside the kitchen was more inviting and so a restaurant was born!
You have two options: either venturing in booking a seat on the round table, which is an amazing experience, or just walk in on first come first served basis to catch one of the tables placed outside.
Either way, Jaï is a must try!
My first experience dates back to My birthday in 2015 and here was my opinion:
What a lovely concept, one of a kind and a must try.
You are in the middle of the chaos of a delivery kitchen yet you are treated better than the classiest restaurants.
One table, 2 hrs to enjoy Fine dining experience: fresh ingredients tickling your taste buds, a mix of Thai and indian cuisine, the right seasoning, cooking everything is right.
I definitely recommend it and wish you can have more tables but maybe then the charm is lost?
All what we ordered was delicious: the summer rolls, the chicken dumplings, the spinach salad, the fish cakes, the tandoori chicken, the fired rice, pad Thai and Singapore dish and best of the best was the offered dessert of beignets with the coconut dipping.
thank you for making my birthday memorable by this dinner experience.
Chapeau Bas JAI
And here I am back again! I had promised my friend to take her there, yet it never worked out, most of the times because of the unpleasant rainy weather!
This time we ordered:
- Vegetable spring rolls: generously filled with a side dip
- Tokyo chicken salad: appealing presentation and delicious mix with the touch of sprinkled almonds what’s not to like?
- Thai beef salad: a delicate balanced mix of sweet and sour with a kick.
- Green chicken curry: another reason to make me fall in love with Green!
For dine in, you are treated with divine dumplings with coconut sauce and powdered sugar. Oh and we were so eager we ate them before I take photo 🙂
Over and over I just want to come back and savor every item of the menu.
I love the spirit of the people there, amazing vibes and tasty food,needless to say I recommend it!
