Jhann, Damansara Heights

August 28, 2019

Presenting a polished take on North Indian cuisine, Jhann strives to bring reinvigorated life to familiar classics, touched up with ingredients seldom seen in traditional South Asian cooking. Soft-shell crab carves a clear presence in biryani that punches through in savouriness (RM49) or fried on its own as pakora with a buttermilk aioli dip; you'll even find caviar here, served with mushroom pate and creme fraiche on a turmeric-tinged blini (not available when we visited, but it should be by now).

For the perfect pairing, match a bowl of tender mussels, saturated in robust, coconut-rich gravy (RM58) with roti that's splashed with truffle oil for an unmistakably earthy boost, made even more aromatic with sprinklings of crispy garlic (RM24).

Cocktails also convey a regional twist or two, showcasing everything from chai to chutney. Service is enthusiastic, with the team here remaining warm and welcoming even on a busy Saturday night.
