Very good! Dec 07, 2011
My Indian friend took me and my American husband to this restaurant for some authentic India food at lunch time. I never liked Indian food before because I had some bad one a few years ago. But, this time is so different. Now, i can say that Indian food is not bad and i will eat it again.
OK! Talk about this Jojo Restaurant. The food was tasty and full of flavors. I especially love all the different kind of curry dishes. They are not too spicy. The flavor is actually just right in each dish. I think this is a good Indian restaurant for the first-timer. Besides the curry dishes, the salads, roti (Indian pancakes), dried rubbed chicken and lamb, and the dipping sauces, are very good too. No complains!!!
However, the Mango Yogurt Drink is not my favorite! Water is always best with Indian food, I think!
Price is great! $88 for all you can eat!
I highly recommend this restaurant and hope you will enjoy the food.

What happened?? Jun 15, 2010
Once there was a little sign above Johnston Road announcing "Jojo Mess". You really had to know where you were going to find the entrance. The food was, as the saying goes, cheap and best. And then progress took over. Change has not been a friend to the food at Jojo's.
Something is amiss at this one-time gem of HK eating. Our chicken Chettinad and prawn vindaloo miraculously arrived coated in exactly the same gravy. The prawns were fine and tender and could have benefitted from the tomato-based vinadaloo sauce that they normally swim in for said dish. The Chettinad sauce was tasty and could have benefitted from chicken that wasn't dry and bland. Perhaps the kitchen actually ran out of tomatoes because there wasn't a bit of tomato to be spotted in our dal makhani.
Add to which, the staff were struggling to deal with a half-full restaurant. It has only been a few months since we were last at the restaurant and it seems to be sliding off a cliff. If prices were still cheap, maybe I could deal with the sudden departure of "best". As it stands, there are too many superior choices to waste time going back to Jojo's if this is what it has become.

English-challenged waitress Feb 22, 2008
Dinner for 2, ordered Chicken Tikka (succulent, not spicy, sizzling plate), lamb shank curry (very tender meat), eggplant (decent portion, a bit too spicy for my bf), so we ordered an aloo gobi (still quite spicy for him despite specifying for not spicy), naan bread came covered with cloth in basket, so it was kept warm and moist. Rice complemented things well.
They don't have coke zero (but then we can't expect them to cater for everyone now, can we)
The waitresses seem very busy milling around but the restaurant was about 30% full on a friday night. Needed to flag them down for attention, refill water etc. But they were prompt in taking away empty dishes, and offered to change a set of plates for us when things got messy.
Not a bad place for a nice quiet meal overlooking the streets of Wanchai.
