First Review by Enfieldian

Awesome - Edit

My fave place Indian place in North London. Excellent dishes and great value. My favourite Tadka Dal yet. Not eveyrthing is vegan but the owner is very helpful and will assist if you have any issues. Lovely place and BYO.

Pros: BYO, Good value, Delish

Cons: None

Great, no frills restaurant, outstanding food - Edit

Been going here several times after friends introduced me to this little gem near Finsbury Park a few years ago. The food is outstanding, items that I haven't seen anywhere else before. As long as you don't mind food cooked in or with oil. Best thing is to order a variety of dishes and share with your friends. The plates are inexpensive and since things come out as they are ready, it's a good way to eat. The restaurant doesn't have a license to sell alcohol but you can bring your own (not that unusual in London). There are a few shops close by. It can get busy so you might want to book ahead.

Pros: Fantastic food, Great value, No frills

Cons: No frills (table cloth, matching plates), Can get crammed & noisy

Authentic Indian Experience! - Edit

I've been to Jai Krishna on several occasions now And most recently, following a trip to India which made me realise how authentic the experience and food is.

All food is vegetarian and lots vegan. I recommend the thali, it's plentiful and you can request no yoghurt and sweet.

Pros: Great menu choices, BYO, Authentic cuisine (thali, dosas etc.)

Cons: slow service when busy

Still the best veggie Indian place in London - Edit

Been going here for years and it still does the best Indian food I've found in London (yes that includes Rasa in Stokey and the Drummond St buffets!). Like the cheap style, pity there's no vegan sweets.

Pros: excellent food, good value, nice vibe

Cons: No vegan puddings, Can be noisy

Jai Krishna is a well kept secret! - Edit

I love taking friends here! It is fresh, tasty, and still somehow very inexpensive (£3-4 for main curry)! Don't be discouraged if it looks dark or empty- it will be busy inside! For newcomers, you write down your order on the paper they give you & it is BYOB (the menu says they have a can/bottle fee, but I have never been charged. There is also an offy next door to it!). There are dishes I haven't seen anywhere else, and have a really big vegan selection. I'm drooling just thinking about it!

Pros: Tasty, Really Cheap, BYOB

Cons: Can be busy, Not open all day

Simple Food, Delicious Flavours - Edit

I love this place. The atmosphere is friendly and laid back. The food is delicious, yet not overdone. They don't use onions and garlic but this doesn't mean it lacks flavour.

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff, good value

An institution in this part of London - always popular with a long term following.

Pros: Consistent, Friendly owner, Great value
