Situated on Swan Street, Jai Ho Richmond has been serving up Indian favourites to the hungry people of Melbourne for four years, and has a reputation that continues to grow exponentially. With a prime position on the main drag through Richmond, just 15 minutes walk from both the MCG and AAMI Park, Jai Ho is the perfect place to drop in after a game for essential stomach-lining and satisfying curries, grilled meats and vegetarian dishes, all packed with the spices of India.
There are restaurants in Melbourne that would kill for the location that Jai Ho Richmond enjoys. In the centre of the Swan Street restaurant district, and just a short walk from the MCG and AAMI Park, there is passing trade aplenty, and Jai Ho does not let the diners of Melbourne down. Offering dishes which cater to both Aussie tastes and authentic Indian standards, the menu features a full repertoire of appetizers, curries, veggie options and sides.
Begin with a selection of classic Indian starters – samosas, seekh kebabs and pakoras – whilst sharing poppadoms, before moving onto the extensive curry options. Choose from Melbourne family favourites such as lamb rogan josh, chicken tikka masala and beef madras, or pick something more exotic, such as the chef’s speciality of Jai Ho murg kali mirch, a North Indian delicacy featuring chicken on the bone cooked with fresh black pepper. At this Swan Street establishment, you can find something that the whole family can enjoy – but make sure you book a table, as Richmond’s discerning diners flock to Jai Ho Richmond in big numbers.
Loved this restaurant and the spicey fragrance when you walk in really whets the appetite. Amazing food, speedy service and easy walking distance to AAMI stadium and Rod Laver Arena. We ordered the banquet and every mouthful was a taste sensation. Highly recommend.
The food was authentic and delicious. The staff were welcoming, helpful with the menu and professional.. I would recommend to friends and definitely go back.
Food & service were excellent. Been there with family and friends enjoyed great and authentic taste of veg and non veg food. First time in Melbourne we enjoyed Rumali Roti. Highly recommended.
