What they say:

With an award winning stable of restaurants in India and backed by The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts, one of the most luxurious names in the hotel industry, the Jamavar brand arrives in London, opening its first overseas restaurant in suave Mayfair. Spread across two floors and fashioned after the Viceroy's house in New Dehli during the time of the British Raj, head chef Rohit Ghai will present dishes from across the entire Subcontinent, shaping each with a distinct London twist. From delicious fresh seafood curries to small plates of Lobster Neeruli and Coconut Payasam, expect only the best from this new Indian spot in London. 

What we say:

London has always been mad about South Asian food and Indian restaurants have played a huge role in shaping the culinary mood of the capital, the best example being the sudden fascination with casual dining. But crucially, Jamavar will surround their diners with elegant decor and authentic dishes. The team of chefs are experts when it comes to recreating these regional classics. Keeping things relevant, the local knowledge of chef Ghai, who was previously in charge of the Michelin-starred Gymkhana and Benaras, will prove to be invaluable in such a competitive market. Expect big things from this opulent spot.
