Jalpaan is a restaurant that seeks to raise the bar for authentic Indian cuisine eateries. The concept was to convey with the interior, the fresh and traditional essence that the menu was going to offer. We have reflected our ideas in the spaces through light and materials that have been chosen after several trial and error methods.
