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.
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.
We had good service and was served lovely authentic Indian dishes in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. My friend and I both agreed we will certainly be back for more!
This place has Beautiful food, very friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere. Easily my favourite Indian restaurant in the area - for take away or dine in!
Excellent food.... while servings appear small, they are actually not.... it was way more than we could finish. Despite it being absolutely delicious, we couldn't finish and had to take away. A little disappointment that our takeaway of 3 dishes were pressed into one single box, curry, rice, veggies and all. Separate packing would have been better as it was no longer suitable for vegetarian since the meat dish was packed together.
Disappointing! We were a group of 4 and I ordered 4 very different dishes which came out looking very similar and tasting very similar. Sauces with poppadoms were not fresh and were what you may expect from SUBWAY. The onion bhaji were simply onion rings similar to that of frozen supermarket onion rings. All in all sub standard food and expensive for what it was. I will not be going back. Nice staff and service will never make up for poor food unfortunately.
Went there for New year's eve with my fiance. The waitress was very helpful. The service was good. Ordered veg platter for starters and Bhuna ghosht and saag chicken with rumali roti and rice. Bhuna ghosht was awesome and so was saag chicken. Overall enjoyed it.
The restaurant was not even half full with diners but the service was very slow . We were a group of 8 people. Our pre-meal drinks arrived at varying times spread out over approximately 20 minutes. Entrees for each person also arrived sporadically over an hour. It was 2 hours after arrival to restaurant that we finally got our mains. When enquiring as to when the mains will be ready the waitress said 2 to 3 minutes but in fact it took 20 minutes. The food was average.
Hello, Great food just very slow service despite there not being many guests. Would be good to speed it up a bit in future as we were there for nearly three hours for a quick thursday night dinner. Thanks!
Very good service and hosting. All the staff members were very helpful and made it very comfortable was for us. Food was excellent as always....
