Jamavar is the signature fine dining restaurant of The Leela. Celebrating the famous 16th century Jamavar shawls of Kashmir, semblances of the intrinsic ‘paisley’ pattern of the shawl can be found at each Jamavar restaurant at The Leela. The cuisine and spectacular décor ensure a rich, royal and a majestic experience.
The flavoursome food that comes from these kitchens brings to the table stories of a royal era. Known for its authentic North and South Indian fine dining experience, Jamavar showcases distinctive cooking styles and dining rituals of India’s ancient nobility. Traditional Indian spices are intrinsic to the flavours of the specialities served. The menu on offer ranges from succulent kebabs to rich curries and fragrant Dum Biryanis.
The authentic Royal Indian dining experience is enhanced by the ambience enriched with hand-carved wooden screens, decorative Indian motifs embroidered in gold thread adorning the walls, flower-laden urli with floating candles, silver cutlery and crockery.
Relish the varied flavours of the royal kitchens, accompanied by an exclusive wine selection of international labels. Pick our Murgh ki Chaap or Tandoori Murgh and savour the tender-cooked meat packed with loads of flavours. Sample the most famed dessert in our menu—Jamavar’s homemade Kesar and Pista Kulfi.
Signature dishes that our chefs recommend are Dhaniya Murgh, or boneless drums of chicken cooked with pounded coriander, and Gosht ki Nihari, an Awadhi lamb delicacy lightly flavoured with saffron, Daal Jamavar, Bharwan Tandoori Broccoli and Heeng Moong Tikki. To add to the royal touch, throw a grand treat for your family and friends at the plush, one-of-its-kind Maharaja Table.
While the soft lighting and mellow music provide an intimate and relaxed setting, the décor is modern with just the right amount of traditional Indian elements.
Relish the varied flavours of the royal kitchens coupled with an exclusive wine selection of over 250 international labels – a menu befitting royalty.
