Badges and bites to ring in the new year | Yelp – Official Blog

This January, Yelp South Bay Elites kicked off the year and celebrated their new badges at Jaks Authentic Indian and Modern Vibe in Santa Clara. They were treated to a cocktail hour filled with drinks, small bites, and a buffet at the newly opened restaurant.

After arriving, the Elites enjoyed their choice of two specialty cocktails, beer, or wine. The Mango Drop and Paan Ki Gulkand-Rita were both a hit. 

Jaks is a beautiful restaurant, complete with a stunning bar! What a treat it was to have the place for our Elite event to kick off the new year. Everything from the interior design, glassware, furniture, cocktails, and of course the food — was amazing.

After grabbing a drink and toasting to the new year, it was time to dig into the upscale bites provided by the Jaks kitchen. From coconut crusted shrimp and parmesan chicken tika passed appetizers, to the butter chicken and dal makhani at the buffet, Elites were treated to quite the culinary experience. 

The cuisine being served was great! The butter chicken had a smooth creamy texture that was soft, the curry sauce complimented it so well! The dosas and rice were great to absorb the complex sauces coming from the entrees. My favorite was the gulab- a great fried dough ball!

There are times when you go to a new spot and just know that you’ll definitely want to come back.  This is one of those places.
