Jolly's Indian Bistro
The aromas of curry and spices draw passersby into Jolly's Indian Bistro, where flickering candles and ambient music create an intimate atmosphere. In the kitchen, Chef Jolly Kumar, who learned to cook from local dhaba chefs during his childhood in New Delhi, prepares fragrant masalas and meaty kebabs in a traditional tandoor oven. Bartenders concoct tropical beverages and pour sweet wines to complement Chef Kumar's spicy sauces, fresh chutneys, and savoury paneer, which were showcased in Vancouver 24 Hour. Ornate iron sconces cast shadows across colourful ceiling drapes and floral, latticed wall panels, providing elegant surroundings to match the refined flavours of Kumar's upscale Indian cuisine.
