Food seems like a general word to describe what you experience at Jungle Love. Fresh and creative dishes served by candlelight. The owner and his wife make an effort to connect with their customers and are truly servile individuals. Authentic experience and delicious dishes!

I believe the popularity has risen to the heads of the personnel. Really unfriendly people with food you can get on a lot of other places. Although the environment is nice, next time I will avoid the place.

We are a small family run restaurant that is located below our home. Our food is a fusion style of flavors that we love and hope you will too. We try to have a little something for everyone. Everything is homemade and we use almost all locally sourced ingredients. When you come to eat at Jungle Love you are eating in our home....We hope you feel welcome and at ease. And we can't wait to meet you. :)P
