Unpleasant experience and food too!.
Far too many red flags and no green flags found. I'll try to put as many as I can think of right now. We went for dinner and our experience was rather unpleasant.
1. Mediocre food taste.
2. High prices. Their prices are comparable and in cases even more than some high class Indian restaurants in the downtown Phili area.
3. Rude waiters. The waiter started arguing over a practice that other restaurants usually have and they don't stating that he hasn't seen any restaurants practicing it anywhere else! Next point is the practice I mentioned to him.
4. They serve only 1 small bowl of rice per table compared to 1 bowl of rice served with every entree at many other places.
5. Unusual practice of charging 18% gratuity on 4 people rather than 6 people normally seen in other places.
6. They don't serve the pappadums, chutneys, pickle or even onions as complimentary which even the least expensive restaurants in the area do.
Fine dining?? Well hello...!!
Its time to wake up and take your business to someplace else where its better appreciated and you get more for the money that you spend.
Pathetic Food and No Variety.
We had tried take away from Jaipur once, we kinda like the taste but were suprised that they give only 1 rice whether you take one or 5 dishes. Damn expensive.
We then thought of trying their lunch buffet and this time we were prepared for high price but we got SHOCK OF OUR LIFE to see pathetic food taste, there were very limited dishes and quantity of those dishes was also like only 4-5 people could eat, which clearly indicates that even the restaurant people DO NOT EXPECT CUSTOMERS.
Only thing good about that place is lonliness.
IF YOU HAVE MONEY TO WASTE PLEASE DO VISIT
We had heard great things about this restaurant but unfortunately it did not live up to our expectations. While the food was good the portions were small compared to other Indian restaurants in the area.
The most disappointing part of the visit was the service. The waiters did not seem interested in helping us, especially with questions about the food.
Although the food was good it was comparable to other Indian restaurants in the Philadelphia area which give larger portions for the same price.
Save Jaipur! Please Read this review before making up your mind about this place.
I've been reading a few of there reviews and I really have to jump to save Jaipur! I've been going to this restaurant for about 2 two years now and I had to take the time to write this review.
I actually talked the owner about the reviews on this site and he was very open to talk about it. He said that his buffet for lunch had been an issue with trying to price it and with some people literally taking 4 -5 plates of food. As a result of those few cheap people, he was losing alot of money. Apparently, for a while the staff got out of hand with making rules to stop these few people but that's not the case anymore. I pasted my yahoo review below. I urge you to go check out other review sites and you'll see more positive reviews.
Service: The host/owner is a saint of a man. It's not uncommon for him to give his customers free desert or some other treat. He and his sons that help out there take alot of care into making sure the customer is happy. I don't think I've ever had to wait either. I do try to make reservations now and again on the weekend. It's very cute how they make cards with the name of the reservation and put it on the table "Reserved for Mr. McCumber". That's a very nice touch.
Food: Awesome. I've traveled to at least 15 cities in the US and ate Indian. This is in the top two and maybe number 1. I try to stick to the Chicken TIkka, Tikka Masala (the curry version), and anything they do on their tandoor oven. It's so unlike any other food! Spicy, mild - I like both and they always cater as long as you tell them.
Atmosphere - it's not over the top, but it's also not a bare place. indian tapestries line the walls, soft authentic music plays in the background, and the place never has the busy hub-bub feel that some places have.
I really have to recommend this place big time.
Def not my favorite restaurant.
My favorite Indian Restaurant was closed and my friend insisted on Indian food so we ended up at Jaipur. I wasnt the biggest fan of this place. The food did not taste fresh, and their service was okay. My friends asked for her food to be VERY mild and they still made is pretty spicy.
I dont think I will end up there again.
Great Indian Food.
Great food. Great servive. Great people. Highly recommend it!!
Very close to King of Prussia Mall.
For Dinner, this has been a very nice experience. Perhaps the negative reviews here are for lunchtime. Personally, I'm not a fan of buffets and haven't eaten here for lunch but I can tell you about our dinner experiences. FANTASTIC! Wonderful, polite service. Delicious food. Every time. I have to agree with the original poster. If you go for dinner, you won't be disappointed.
extremely rude staff, unpleasant atmosphere. When I walked in I was "greeted" with a much too strong incense smell. It was present throughout the meal and it made it very difficult to taste my food. I felt like I was eating incense. Further, the servers are rude. At the buffet one of the servers grabbed something out of my hand! Also, there are signs posted everywhere about how you will be charged extra if you waste food (a $2.00 charge) or if you use a bowl that is only to be used for fruit (a $1.00 charge). All of the above contributes to a generally unpleasant setting. To be fair, the food is okay but I've had much better food for the same (or less) in a much more pleasant setting.
MOST RUDE CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER!!. This place has a pathetic attitude towards its customers! If they had it their way, they would charge you for every damn thing... spoon, fork, etc.. Not only were we refused additional bowls rudely by the waiter, but also were charged for the buffet that we had barely got started with! I havent come across any other restaurant run by such unethical people. Bottom line.. all they care about is making their money... retaining their customers is a concept unheard of! I am not the kind of person who likes to give negative reviews for the kicks of it! No matter how good the food is, but its the customer service which eventually matters. I think I have more than expressed my opinion about this restaurant. ..its up to you to decide whether to consider or disregard it before visiting this place again.
Try Hyderabadi lamb. The new Hyderabadi rice dish with lamb is outstanding. Wonderfully complex, fruity, spicy.
