Further Information

Home of the Himalayas, Nepal is bordered by the gargantuan nations of China and India, and because of its position, has received culinary influences from both countries. That’s not to say that Nepalese cuisine isn’t unique, but rather the opposite is true. A flavourful cuisine shaped by a mountainous landscape, Nepalese cuisine isn’t uniform, but enompasses a wide range of unique ingredients, preparation methods, and spices, depending on where the dishes originate within the country. At JoJolapa Bar and Restaurant in Birmingham’s Ladywood, diners are exposed to the very finest selection traditional specialties, which aim to showcase the rich culinary heritage that makes Nepalese cooking so very unique and flavourful.

Executive chef Ganesh Shrestha works hard behind the scenes to ensure that Birmingham’s JoJolapa Bar and Restaurant’s offerings are of the absolute highest standard. Mains such as the kashi ko mashu (Nepalese-style lamb curry with tomato, onion, fresh coriander, and spices) or the vegetarian favourite ramtoriya (okra sauteed with onions and spices) are the perfect options for newbies to the cuisine, and starters like steamed momo (Nepalese dumplings) are the perfect accompaniment to any meal. We highly recommend making a reservation for this upscale Nepalese restaurant on Birmingham’s Newhall Street, as spaces are limited!

We have visited Jojolapa on a number of occasions because the service & food are excellent. We particularly enjoy the Chicken Choyla (starter) & their Rogan Josh (main course) - we'll certainly be visiting again shortly. Enjoy.

The restaurant was well set out with plenty of room. The service was very good and the food delicious. This will be in my top 10 places to go back to and I would highly recommend it. For those not knowing what to expect from a Nepalese restaurant, my description would be it is Indian food with some Chinese influence. the starter course was almost areal in itself and the main was plentiful. All the food was served hot and fresh. My only criticism is it was a little pricy but it is in the centre of town so probably justified. The on line menu needs an update as some of the set menus are no longer available.

Not knowing what to expect from a Nepalise restaurant we were pleasantly surprised. The food is a mix of Indian and Chinese. The service was excellent with no pressure and the room was well set out clean and plenty of space between tables. When the food arrived it was extremely well presented our starters were almost a meal in themselves. The main courses and sides all arrived together we're hot and delicious. This is definitely a restaurant to recommend.JP

When we arrived our table of three was originally positioned between two big birthday groups so we asked to be reseated further away a request duly dealt with without fuss and we ended up with a much better and quieter table. The service was a little slow between courses and it was difficult to communicate with the staff but this could be excused on a busy Saturday night. That said the food was nice, we went for a set menu with three courses but could barely manage two, blame that on the popadums, way too delicious!

An excellent meal - Service is prompt, and unobtrusive, drinks not too expensive but the star of the show was the food - The menu is not overly complicated, but we ended up ordering their set meal - We can honestly say that the tastes were exceptional - Well worth calling in when you are in Birmingham city centre!

Quite busy for a Wednesday evening so good atmosphere. Service was attentive and well paced although our starters were a little slow to arrive. Food was great, spices were well balanced and all the flavours came through. Chicken and lamb dishes both very tender. Vegetarian dishes were excellent. Will certainly keep this restaurant on our go to list.

This is the third time I have been to this restaurant and each time it has been better. The food, service, cleanliness is excellent, and I can not fault it. I was accompanied by several girlfriends who were all just as impressed and 2 have already booked to return with partners. Excellent and would recommend to all.
