Jaipur Jungle- Restaurant which takes you to the wild

Bored of going to the same restaurants?  We have just explored a new place in town that will surely interest you and your friends and at the same time will satisfy your appetite.

Yes, the new dine- in place, Jaipur Jungle, a place with the ambiance and the feel of the jungle.Though theme based restaurants are not new for the city, as Jaipurities have already experienced dining at ‘Jungle safari’ based on similar Jungle theme. Those who have visited Jungle safari will not find this any different but for others it definitely is an interesting place.

Located on 6th and the top most Floors, Business Avenue, Near Pink Square Mall, Jaipur Jungle serves variety of Indian and International cuisine. Jaipur Beat visited the place on Sunday and found that the interior was pretty dark but it brings a new kind of ambiance with a family appeal to it.

One will definitely take some time to look around before finally picking up the menu card.

Even the staff was dressed in the jungle ranger uniform. Menu was really lavish, offering wide range of starters and the main course starting as Rasoi Ki khasiyat, Paneer Ki Khasiyat with 12 types of Paneer dishes and Dal Khaas e Nawabi offers not only one two or three but 6 types of pulses continued to rice dishes, papads, salads in veg. Non-veg main course was attention grabbing offering food from Jungle Ke Khazane se and Samundar Ki Gharai se for seafood.

JJ6

We decided to order one Paneer dish, one veg dal makhani and a chicken dish. The food though cooked well but proves too rich for the stomach. Masala Papad was interesting as topped up with bikaneri bhujia.

The staff was very attentive towards the guests and hence we had no complaints in terms of service. It counts for a lot these days. There was no gap in the service and refill of chapattis (breads) and curries. The staff encourages you taste their specialties.

What scores for this restaurant is their level of service. Even if the jungle setting doesn’t amuse you your kids surely will enjoy every bit of this place.

All in all the Jaipur Jungle was a pleasant experience. The food could be friendlier to the stomach. The experience of jungle is new and interesting and one must visit it once. So, Get ready for a complete experience of fine dinning in the wild.

Entire set of Amer Fort was re-created on the ramp, which was probably the first time in history when the soulful spirit of Rajasthan and its splendid architecture was reflected so beautifully on a life size event.

The gracious Sharmila Tagore walked the ramp in pristine glory dressed in a lovely pink color saree adorned with the alluring jewellery from the Amér collection.

Following her were a bunch of models walking down the runway on the beats of traditional Rajasthani music with singer Ila Arun who rocked the ramp with her voice by singing folk songs from the state wearing tribal chunky jewelry in gold and diamond.

The gorgeous Kangana Ranaut then sashayed the ramp in her exquisitely designedlehenga-choli festooned with a stunning necklace from Amér. Along with her, came the dashing beau, the model-turned actor, Vidyut Jammwal and Creative Director of Birdhichand, Mr Yash Agarwal.

YashThe ramp saw an exciting mélange of Sarees, Anarkalis, Lehenga-cholis, and dresses, all wrapped in a beautiful palette of colors designed by Pallavi Jaipur.

Stopovers for ‘Friendship Day’ Celebration

Since its inception in 1935, in US the beautiful idea of having a day in the honor of friends was joyously taken by one and all. The lofty idea of honoring the beautiful relationship of friendship caught on with the people, particularly the youngsters all over, and in no time Friendship Day became a highly popular festival .

Started with handing over roses, especially the pink and yellow ones have now reached a long way to throwing parties, gorging on lip-smacking dishes and drinking hard. A highly popular thing associated with the day is the well-known Friendship Band – the modern day token of friendship that friends gift to one another to form an everlasting bond.

In Jaipur, greater hype and hoopla around the occasion has helped to generate awareness about Friendship Day festival that was till recently a low-key affair.

Restaurateurs are not only offering special discounts but have also done intensive planning to organise a special evening just for F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and couples as well. 😉

The one such place is The Fern Hotel Jaipur,which  is celebrating the spirit of friendship by throwing a day &  night party at its Grunge Lounge,
