About Jamuna

Corny as it may sound, Jamuna's modern look matches its food. A brightly decorated room provides a modern backdrop to an exciting menu on which staple Indian dishes are given a confident - yet never overbearing - innovative twist. For example: monkfish tikka - chunks of monkfish marinated with fresh herbs, cooked in a clay oven, and mussel rasam - mussels delicately simmered in a broth of fresh ginger, coriander and tamarind. Yum. Having said that, if there's something special you'd like that isn't on the menu - just ask, and ye shall very probably receive. Good choice of vegetable dishes. A private basement bar provides a secluded place for drinks and super snacks. An extensive wine list starts with a bottle of house wine at £19.00.
