Our Experience


Jimmy’s has a really professional look and feel about it. The first thing I noticed was the size of the building. They really have an enormous seating area which consists of 2 floors plus an outside section. There is also a nice prayer facility to make use of which I found really convenient.

When we entered we were greeted by the friendly staff and shown to our table which was already beautifully set for us. We were seated right next to the lovely kids play area.

Shortly thereafter the food arrived, and what a truly amazing sight that was. The presentation of the food just looked impeccable and we couldn’t wait to dig in.


We had the following to eat:

  • 12 prawns kashmiri which came with chips and rice
  • Half chicken pakeeza which came with chips, rice, spinach and pumpkin.
  • Cheesy Garlic Rolls
  • Mexican Bread
  • Kumpir – potato stuffed with chicken, cheese, corn, onions and lemon butter sauce.
  • Salad and a blended mocktail.


I tried the cheesy garlic rolls first and I was totally blown away. The garlic and the cheese were made in perfect proportions that either one did not overpower the other. The roll was soft and it just melted in my mouth. The mexican bread was just as amazing with a touch of spice to it. The Kumpir was really interesting. It was a potato with sweet corn and a lovely sauce on top. It was really tasty.

The chicken and prawns were absolutely amazing with lots of sauce and spiced to perfection. If you love spicy food you will love the spiciness of these prawns and chicken, if not then you can enquire about a milder option.

To end off our meal, we had a lovely blended mocktail. It tasted just as good as it looked.
