Jaali Café is just two years old and a welcome addition to the region’s restaurant scene. We’ve already earned a reputation for consistently serving delicious, innovative, fresh and beautifully presented food.

Friends L-J (chef and restaurant consultant) and Kate (food enthusiast) have designed and created a small but diverse menu. Our food is influenced by Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines, but we use locally available fresh produce. Sagar and Rahul run a dedicated kitchen staff, Manju seats you and rustles up the bill and Arjun mixes your drink or delivers the espresso shot you really need.

We cater for vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian and meat-eaters equally. And since our food relies on simple, creative combinations of ingredients we can easily re-invent most of our non-veg dishes as vegetarian or vegan. Every week new specials are introduced too, so if you’re in the area long term, there’s no chance to get bored with what’s on offer. Even fussy children keep on coming back for our plates.

Jaali Café also has a great little bar serving coffees, a carefully selected wine list and fabulous cocktails. The café is open six days a week, breakfast through afternoon pit-stop and for dinner four nights a week. During peak season, December and January, evening reservations are essential. Saturday night usually sees an impromptu party with a DJ or a screen is rolled down for an open-air, feel good classic movie night.

The venue can also be booked for private occasions; have your birthday party or any-reason celebration in our charming garden. We’ll tailor-make our menu to suit you.
