All in all, a great meal! I really enjoyed it and I wish I was with my wife who I know would have enjoyed it here. I will be back here when I am in Pune.

Masala Mafia

I have been hearing about Jalpaan since a long time. I had visited it a couple of years back for a friend’s treat and my memory is hazy on that experience. I just remember that I came out with an “above average” feeling then. I intended to give it a test again recently.
