This place may not have a place to sit, but the food at this place just makes up for it all. Their specialty though is prawns and fish. The onions and chutney served alongwith are a no-fail accompaniment! You sure are ,missing out on something if you are a non-vegetarian and haven't been here!
Jai jawan is the most quirky place for chicken and fish eaters. Its best if you call in for home delivery. Its run by a sikh family so one can imagine the quality and the taste of chicken . Its butter chicken, roasted chicken , fish tikka , fried fish and chicken malai tikka are all dishes to crave for. The food is of proper mughalai north indian taste and the meat is perfectly cooked ...neither too hard nor too soft. Its appropriate for people with punjabi palletes. Coming on to the vegetarian dishes, paneer tikka masala, butter paneer masala, maa ki daal, paneer tikka dry are some amazing dishes to yearn for. Do order to enjoy and get lost into the yummilicious punjabi mughalai food.
This is a combined review for the one in Bandra & their outpost in Lokhandwala. It was my wife who first introduced me to this place (turns out my brother has been a fan for many years!!!), one taste of their tandoori chicken & fried fish & I was hooked to their food!!! Both outlets are basically quick service over the counter outlets, though they do have a Jai Jawan express which has opened in Oshiwara which is a seated restaurant. The service is prompt, though they are always busy but still it takes no longer than 20 to 25 minutes for your order, the food is fresh & lip smackingly delicious. There are times when my wife & I did not want to eat at home so we have driven down all the way from Juhu to either of the outlets to take away some food!!! Now living in Pune, I really miss this place, the prices too are reasonable, and the portions are substantial. Do try their food, its mouth watering!!!
Visited after years and forgot how good the food tasted! Earlier I had only tasted the Paneer Tikka (which is delicious by the way), so I tried a couple of other dishes on the menu (dal makhani and veg biryani), both of which were really nice too. Though I am a vegetarian so I can't speak for the non-veg personally, I have friends who love non-veg and they go crazy about the food here.
O the mesmerising fragrance of roasted chicken can engage your senses and grab your attention if your close to Linking road Bandra and force you into indulging in an enticing meal! Jai Jawan the overly crowded place that serves filling portions of mouth watering delicacies never fails to impress The food is delicious, the ambiance who cares, the service needs to a little more worked upon and the prices are quite acceptable for a tummy filling meal!
Jai Jawan's fried prawns and fried fish with pav n chutney are so tempting that we are compelled to drive all the way from Colaba to quench this hunger! Waiting in the ever increasing crowd for 15 -20 minutes is a pain but the arrival of the fresh and piping hot food makes up for it. Be warned....parking is a pain and you may need to park on the opposite side of the road but the boys do deliver the food there albeit later than usual.
I am fan of Jai Jawan from childhood and his Seafood are awesome. I love his Prawns and Fish, though Chiken Kababs are okay. Ambience is not great but for the price I will rate this place 10 out of 10.
