  1. Really cool and surprisingly affordable

    I took my girlfriend to Jago for her birthday on a colleague’s recommendation and it was a great evening. The space itself is really cool and the service was friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent and surprisingly affordable considering the location and quality of the restaurant as a whole.
