Indian Cuisine has always fascinated people all over the world. Imagine dinning in a royal atmosphere during your weekend. Jamawar Restaurant at Holiday Inn, Salmiya, welcomes you to a royal dining experience.

The name Jamawar comes from Kashmir, India. It is from a special type of shawl. Other than its name the restaurant is tastefully decorated in traditional Rajasthani décor. A very warm ambience with the look and feel of Royal Rajasthan. The interior has typical Rajasthani style with dolls and lanterns decorating the walls. We feel as if we have come to the Land of Maharajas - Rajasthan. Name coming from Kashmir and Interior in typical Rajasthani style, Jamawar restaurant blends in authentic Indian flavours in an ambient atmosphere. This restaurant brings in the true taste of India.




As we enter there is a play area outside the restaurant for the kids. The restaurant offers outside and inside dinning facility. Sitting capacity outside is around 30 and inside it’s around 80 dinners. Kids can enjoy at the play area while elders place orders.





Their à la carte menu offers a wealth of temptations. We started by trying out their starters. They have a wide array of mouth melting tandooris. So we ordered Tandoori Chicken Tikka, which is Boneless chicken tikka marinated with yoghurt and black cumin, Murgh ki Chops - A grilled marinated chicken with coriander and Indian Spices, Tandoori Hamour, Achari Hamour Tikka – Fresh Hamour marinated with herbs, achari pickles and yoghurt and Tandoori Lamb Chops – Slightly spiced juicy lamb chops marinated with ginger, garlic and the char-griled. Some of us where vegetarians so we ordered Paneer Tikka Sunheri – Yoghurt and saffron marinated cottage cheese cooked in the tandoor, Tandoori Gobhi – Char-grilled cauliflower marinated in yoghurt ginger, garlic and spices and Tandoori Aloo- Potato stuffed with cottage cheese, spices, nuts and coriander grilled in the tandoor , for Kids French fries and Samosas. Starters were quite exotic. We just got indulged in delightful and succulent tandoori grills which were cooked to perfection and served straight from the tandoor. The stuffed Potato ‘Tandoori Aloo’ was something unique and a must try!




They have an open kitchen and we could watch them prepare the tandooris while waiting for our orders.

After finishing the round of delectable starters I couldn't wait to have the main course. We started with Subz Biryani. Their Jhinga Masala is Gulf Prawns cooked in a spicy tomato and onion masala gravy. Murgh Makhani is a chunks of charcoal grilled chicken tikka cooked in tomato gravy smothered with butter and cream. One of the special dish we tried is Hamour Masala where charcoal grilled Hamour cooked in rich aromatic onion and tomato masala. Dal Jamawar and Vegetable Jalfrezi – Fresh vegetables tossed with onion and bell pepper finished with onion tomato masala are a treat to the Vegetarians. I savoured every morsel of my meal that I could sense happiness run through my veins.






Gulab Jamoon with Saffron and Pistachio Kulfi was a great conclusion to my connoisseur delight.

They also have an exclusive semi private cabin called ‘Maharaja Table’. This six seater Maharaja Table have dedicated staff and has its own set menu for 20 KD per person.

Otherwise their culinary treat is affordable for a family of four who can spend 20 to 25 KD budget for a luxury dine out. This experience at Jamawar at Holiday Inn, Salmiya will surely leave a lasting memory on your taste buds. Gather the whole family for this royal dining experience!




Jamawar Indian Restaurant is located at Holiday Inn, Salmiya at Al Blajat Street near to Gulf street.
