“We specialize in the finest authentic North Indian cuisine and tandoori cuisine in Melbourne,” says Saurabh Abbott.
“We showcase India in every way we can. At Richmond our interiors are warm and welcoming and replete with traditional Indian art and Rajasthani handmade tables,” he adds.
Located near several major sporting venues, the area is always buzzing with activity be it Aussie Rules Football, Australian Open, cricket tournaments, rugby or soccer games. “The restaurant has become a favourite with local and international guests. We have come to realize that not only are we showcasing Indian food but also representing the culinary image of Melbourne,” says Saurabh.
At Hoppers Crossing, Jai Ho is located at the heart of the subcontinent community. “We have handmade Jodhpuri Baithak and furniture or the walls with some true Indian art and culture showcased. We get complimented by people here who tell us that we present the flavours of India.” says Gautam Thapar.
