About Us
Jammie’s Kitchen is the outcome of the desire to be usefully employed post retirement by the owner Upendra Singh Jamwal aka Jammie. With help from friends, family and well wishers Jammie’s Kitchen came into being on 25th April 2012.
 
Our Food
 
India's Cuisine is as diverse as its regions. Its history can be traced back thousands of years. Each region's cuisine has been influenced by the areas surrounding it, as well as India's many religions. Food patterns in India can certainly be linked to a region's natural environment and religious practices, but foreign influence also has played a large part. India's cuisine is as rich and diverse as her people. The spectrum of Indian cuisine can be said to lie between 2 extremes; vegetarianism and meat eating.
 
It took time to decide upon the food that we wanted our guests to partake and eventually we decided upon Classical Indian and International cuisine which directed us to dig up some research on home based Indian preparations that could be transformed into restaurant dishes and go back to basics for the International fare.
 
Since our inception some months ago we have had some tremendous success with our food, building a strong and a loyal guest base of repeat guests. All our guests enjoy meals cooked in an innovative vision of perfection featuring subtle blend of taste and served with utmost care, warmth and gracious tradition of Indian hospitality for satiating the discerning quest of all our guests.
 
We are driven by Quality; our focus has always been and will always be on quality. We passionately and painstakingly source all our ingredients from the finest suppliers from near and far.
 
Our Mission
 
To provide food of the highest possible quality at affordable prices that translates into value for money for all our guests and triggers joy, pleasure, uplift moods, generates laughter and engages bonhomie and raises the spirits.
