Jammin’ Jamun


Goa’s most popular resto lounge comes to the city!


Said to have been named after the founder father’s favorite fruit, Jamun takes a spin on
Nouveau Indian cuisine. Rakshay Dhariwal’s brainchild that entered every major Indian city has
now come to Hyderabad.
Close buddies Shashank Kakum and Nagarjuna Parvathaneni, traveled throughout the country
looking for a concept, until a chance lunch at Jamun Goa made them fall in love with the place.
Shashank has been in the F&B industry for over a decade and launched the bar Elsewhere and
is a partner in the hugely popular Cara Cara.
The outdoorsy place is beautiful and gives an artistic indie vibe. It has a verandah-style cafe
look, replete with terracotta-tiled canopy, arched windows, knotted cane furniture and copper
tableware. The venue was an old house which has been done up well by architect Shashank
Rao. The existing banyan trees and mango trees, in the backyard, naturally gel in with Jamun’s
theme and the beautiful purple hues of the said fruit have been used well.
The menu also embraces the rustic, authentic flavors with nostalgic recipes from Kashmir to
Deccan. Start with Tamatar ki Chaat (warm aloo tikkis on a tangy sauce doused with bhujia) and
Beetroot Tikki which melts in the mouth. These two will win hearts of vegetarians and non-
vegetarians alike. Gym freaks can try the Avocado Chaat but we gave it a miss to save room for
some well- deserved calories. Carnivores can opt for the succulent Seekh Kababs, and the
spicy Andhra Chicken. Also try the purple hued fluffy Jamun Puri with traditional favorites like
Jamun Butter Chicken.
The selection is a true ode to Indian food, and the flavors are the same as Jamun Goa (part of
the chef’s team is from that outlet). Hard to find Indian food gems, like Daal Gosht, Shikampuri
Kebab and even the humble Baigan Ka Bharta, will win your taste buds and to some level your
If you do have room for dessert, try their kulfi but we recommend skimping on desserts and
saving your calories for a few extra cocktails. The cocktail menu is interesting, with a few drinks
added apart from the signature pan India menu. The must try drink is of course named after
purple fruit with flavors of Jamun pulp and Gin, it’s got a desi twist and tastes tangy, also try the
subtle Spirited Nizam.
Scoring a 10/10 for almost everything, this resto lounge with indie pop playing in the background
is a must visit. An ode to India’s rich spices and cuisine we’re sure you’ll fall in love with the
