We've been patronizing Jolly's for years but admittedly not quite as frequently since we've moved out of the neighborhood. Our favorite table is by the window so we generally try to arrive at 4:30 PM when the doors open. For as long as we can...More

We don't frequent Jolly's as regularly since we moved out of the neighborhood. As usual we start with either naan or samosas. Our favorites are butter chicken and goa fish fry and finishing our repast is either rice pudding or a carmalized banana

Good plain, hearty Indian food adjusted for western tastes. Nothing fancy, just good Tuesday night food.
