“Cosy ambience and great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Walked into this quaint little place on JP road. Heard raving reviews before but thought of trying it out myself. We ordered a fish & chips and a ham, bacon, pineapple pizza. The fish, although Basa, which generally gives you a rubbery tasteless texture was crumb fried to perfection. It was tender and moist, served with delicious home made tartare sauce with a side of fries with vinegar. Very English ! The pizza had a nice crispy hand tossed thin crust and the toppings were adequate and delicious. Service was polite and prompt, worthy of the extra tip besides the service charge already taken. Overall a great experience. Will surely visit again.

“Lovely food and ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Loved the ambience and the beef burger - medium rare. The meat was tender and the fries crisp. Didn't expect the restaurant to be so large from inside. Deceptive when you look from outside. Cops hassled when we exited the restaurant at 12.45 am sharp. The waiters literally escorted each guest out before this time limit. Otherwise a pleasant experience.

“Lovely cozy place with a nice concept”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

I loved the ambience & the concept of the place. The place is nice & cozy too. Lot of interesting things on the menu to eat. The drinks menu is quiet elaborate & all drinks are served in Jam Jars, which is quiet cool. However the non alcoholic drinks selection is quiet sad & no options of fat free smoothies available. I tried the watermelon or the cranberry Iced tea & it was quit sad & not worth ordering...

We tried a few starters like the lotus seeds fritters which are good munching options. The quesadillas were good, but the tacos were very sad & not worth ordering. The fries were nice with a good tartar dip. The pizzas were quiet nice too.

The most killa thing was the dessert called as the flower pot. It's definitely a must order and when it is served you will be totally amused. I am not going to break the suspense for the first timers, but it's a total must have.

The place is decently expensive and might not be feasible for multiple visits if you quiet frequently eat outside.

“Neat place in the heart of Versova !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Jamjar Diner is a neat place in the heart of Versova. They have an extensive menu. You can come here for an evening snack / saturday night bar drinking / casual dinner. They serve you drinks in actual jamjars with handles. They also serve locally brewed beers. I recently had the mojito and it was well made. I had the nachos along with the mojito and it was a good finger licking food option. The thin crust pizzas are also well made. Truly recommended place on any day of the week.
