Super busy everywhere in Boulder. This was the only restaurant that didn't turn us away. Service was slow but sincere. It was amazing in such a diverse city not many places were open. Jai Ho came thru for us. Thank you for you kindness

Jai Ho is one of my most favorite Indian cuisine in Boulder. I return again and again because the service is friendly, attentive, welcoming, and goes above and beyond to explain the dishes in great detail when I inquire!!! The dosa is the absolute best in town, so gluten free folks come to Jai Ho for fantastic gf options. I... More

We went for dinner a few weeks ago and my shoes were sticking to the carpet, the candles on the table were never lit and the overall food and service were not good. The vegetable pakora was mailing just onion strings and the paneer dish was not all that fresh. Service was also very odd where I got my wine... More

The place used to be a great Chinese restaurant. It was closed, and opened a couple times and Jai Ho has been the most successful. I generally stop after my yoga class. Pretty much has the basic fare. The nan is better than most. The sweets are also better than most. I don't know if they are open for dinner,... More

This place offers best south indian food in Boulder. To be specific, I love Chili Onion Utthappam. Sambar tastes great and is thick. Weekday buffets have excellent variety covering cusines from Northen India to Southern India. Servers are very polite and professional. Long story short, if you love South Indian food and are in boulder, do visit Jai ho!

Food was cold. Then they over charged. Not a good place. There are better Indian restaurants in Boulder for the price.

This is the second or third Indian restaurant in this location, and probably the least good. We have twice had the lunch buffet here and it has been less than mediocre. The buffet food is often cold, and several dishes each time ran out & were not replaced. The naan seemed like it was cooked in bulk before lunch and... More

Not sure why this restaurant has garnered such negative reviews, one reason might be the decor, the room seems too large and foreboding, although to make it more friendly they have Indian Bollywood playing on a large screen tv. I have not eaten from the buffet(seldom do) but service has always been friendly, and the food quite delicious. One thing... More
