The restaurant was cold. We asked for a complimentary glass of wine and the server only comped one but two in the party. It took a very long time for the food to arrive and the dish wasn’t prepared as asked so it extended our wait times. The server gave us to-go containers but only one bag.

Superb Indian food. The lamb shank melted in your mouth and the seasoning was complex and delightful. I’ve eaten tikka masala all over the world and the combination of spices in this tikka masala make it one of my favorites anywhere. Also Don’t miss one of the dosas as an appetizer -it is packed with so much flavor! The restaurant is at the end of Dutch valley and has nice outdoor seating as well. A jewel in a hidden location.

Wine glass had lipstick on it
Waiter didn't refill drinks or check to see if food was ok.
Not enough meat in the dish appetizers was also skimpy.

Restaurant was very dirty. The food supply was very low. A very poor selection. The first time I’ve ever eaten Indian food and not had an option to eat tandoori chicken.

Delicious food and I love the location, tucked away off of Dutch Valley Road, close to the Beltline. The buffet is excellent for the price and the amount of food offered and they have great cocktails ( the bar scene is also a plus). I loved it and will be back and take my friends as well. And they had cricket and Bollywood on TV not afraid to embrace their heritage, they are authentic and that counts, that was a definite plus for this cricket lover.

This is our favorite Indian restaurant. The Chana Masala is really good and so is the rosemary Naan. The outdoor seating is wonderful. It’s quiet and comfortable. The service is prompt and courteous. I highly recommend it.

The food is the best I have had in Atlanta -- and maybe even India! The owner is so nice and personable. He formerly worked for the Taj Group in India. The outdoor dining area was delightful. The calamari was so good as an appetizer we almost ordered it again as an entree. Not to be missed! The curries were complex and delicious. The Lamb Shank melted in my mouth. I cant wait to go back again and repeat a few and then try every dish on the menu.

One of a kind. Lamb chops as suggested by the chef were succulent and delicious. I ordered Dal with naan alongside and it made the best combination. Friendly staff and owner. Although tucked away on the NE side of Atlanta but a 9 minute Uber drive. A MUST TRY!

The good was great! My fave was the curried chicken soup, OUTSTANDING best I’ve had! The Chef came to the table and I had to tell him about it. The server could have been a tad more attentive but by no means did it have a bad effect on out experience. Also there was a semi-private event going on so I get it! I live nearby so I will def be back.

My friend, who had never been to Jai Ho before, and I recently had dinner at Jai Ho. The food was good. However, the service was mediocre. Our waiter wasn't friendly and, quite frankly, didn't seem to want to be bothered with us. The restaurant wasn't busy. I will not be going back to this establishment.

When the items on the Menu is less, you know, the Chef specializes only on those and you are assured, of the Quality, Taste, Right ingredients with the correct Quantity.

Areas of improvement - Seating is very congested inside for a party of 11 people. Indian Food needs space on the table to enjoy....cluttered table takes away the fun of enjoying the food.

Courteous, although the Waiter who served us was courteous, the other waitress didn't show much attention. Generally, any waiter or waitress should keep an eye on all the tables, there's always someone in the able asking for something ...extra cutlery (especially Indian food), water or additional menu item.

Overall, the taste of starters.enteree, main course, the Biryani and the Jamoon Pie are rated high. Crumablee a no-no...Rasmalai would taste and be an awesome addition to the desserts.

Jai Ho Indian Kitchen and Bar is truly a gem. We came for Sunday brunch with our family who was visiting from Belize. We were met at the door by Anish and waited on by a most pleasant young lady. The buffet was comprised of a wonderful selection of both traditional and vegan dishes. Essentially, they offered something to suit even the most discriminating of palates. The flavors made my appetite leap for joy! This is, by far, the BEST Indian food I've tasted in Atlanta. :-) We will definitely be back.

The staff and owner or Jai Ho are very accommodating, courteous and attentive. The food is good but not exceptional. The restaurant would be much busier in a different location. Would recommend for an easy, relaxed evening with friends.

Food was good but the service was very bad. There were hardly 3 parties that were dining and they took for ever to get the food. Some of the items were served cold, example Naan was cold. Very badly managed serving by the chef. I think he cooked the naan well before the dishes were ready.

We came here for the Sunday Buffet and were so happy with our experience. They had a variety of things out so we were able to try all kinds of things for the first time. It’s hard to find places that serve masala dosas, which is one of my guilty pleasures, and they make a really crispy and delicious masala dosa. We are so excited to come back!
