Maybe it’s just me, but I randomly get the munchies for Indian food. Maybe it’s the mouth-watering aroma, beautiful colours of the curry or the flavour explosion when you sink into that first bite. So when we’re in the mood for something more than banana leaves and curry and want to spice up with a round of drinks- there’s only one place to go: Jhann.

What To Know About Jhann

Jalan Medan Setia 2, just close to Plaza Damansara, is in the centre of Kuala Lumpur’s eating district. Jhann is a hidden treasure in this busy city. It is an excellent spot to start if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Bangsar, Pavilion, or Changkat. You will be immersed in a distinct part of Kuala Lumpur since it is located in a tranquil and relaxed suburb of Bukit Damansara.

“Jhann” is a variant of the Hindi word “jaan,” which means “life” and is frequently used as a term of affection, such as “meri jaan,” which means “my life/love”. Jhann is a vibrant place with a diverse range of dishes that would appeal to everybody. Jhann’s sophisticated approach to North Indian cuisine aims to give old classics a new lease on life by using ingredients rarely seen in traditional South Asian cookery.

They interpret nostalgic Indian food at Jhann, which is noted for its depth of original recipes and time-honoured traditions that trace back in time across India’s rich past, while still being open to a modern and innovative approach. They seek to revolutionise how Indian food is seen and presented on the world gourmet stage, with combined expertise of more than 20 years in the restaurant and bar sector. On an elegant avenue leading to a brilliant golden bar, Jhann’s warm and friendly venue welcomes you with monochrome marble tiles and starry Roman columns.

Things To Order at Jhann

Paani Poori Shots will whet your desire, while Soft-Shelled Crab Pakora will satisfy your hunger. However, save room in your tummy for the Sizzling Lamb Masala served on a sizzling platter with Creamy Spinach and Cottage Cheese. The Truffle and Wild Mushroom naan, which provides varied textures and piquancy to every bite, is another worth trying. Finish the meal with a flaming Baked Milk Solids or Jalebi, a spiral delight drenched in sugar syrup and served with almond milk ice cream.
