Description
Welcome to Janaki. "A pinch of perfection, dash of distinction and a sprinkle of sophistication. The perfect world of Indian cuisine"` Our philosophy is to provide fresh tasting quality food in modern surroundings. Our menu is inspired by the exotic and extraordinary regional tastes and flavours of India, providing exciting flavour and texture combinations. We use two traditional grill styles to prepare our food, the Tandoor (really hot clay oven) and Tava (searing and gridding on a very hot plate). We also cook our dishes in vegetable oil rather than ghee meaning a healthier and lighter curry experience than you would have at many other restaurants. Our highly experienced and dedicated Chef prepares fresh and fragrant food, combining tantalising tastes from bold use of flavours with delectable results. Our menu is complemented by an excel-lent wine list that has been chosen especially to suit India food. Please note that the Restaurant is available for private functions and we also offer our catering service at a venue of your choice.
