If you’re in the vicinity of Pilning and fancy a superb dining experience that touches all five senses, you’d do well to book a table at Jnoon, a restaurant specialising in North Indian cuisine. The name Jnoon itself means ‘passion’, and it’s clearly passion at work in this kitchen up on Cross Hands Road – you can smell it the minute you enter the restaurant. While Jnoon celebrates dishes drawn from the rural and royal traditions of the northern Indian regions, one of the best ways to get familiar with Jnoon’s particular brand of South Asian culinary creativity is to go for the Maharaja tasting menu, an imperious selection that brings connoisseurs from Bristol and beyond. From the a la carte menu we love the unusual use of rabbit in the South Indian (an anomaly on the menu) varuval, the Barbary duck, and the fiery Goan vindaloo.
Lovely food good service all at a reasonable price restaurant was very busy so glad we booked if anything to moan about could do with better lighting in the car park
Friendly welcoming staff. Excellent food, wonderful flavours, could not fault it. Only downside was restaurant on the cool side. Will definitely be returning with friends.
Reasonably good selection of dishes in the Sunday lunchtime buffet and excellent value for money. Would have liked the buffet to have included some nan bread.
