One Yelp reviewer said, "Jot always gets it right."

Another Yelp user recommended two of Jot's dishes: chicken tikka masala and saag paneer.

"Flavor was fresh, tangy and delicious," the Yelp reviewer said. "I'm really picky about authenticity and flavor, and Jot's exceeded my family's expectations."

The restaurant is owned by married couple Gurbachan Singh and Manjeet Kaur, according to Yelp. The owners took to social media to express their gratitude.

"This couldn't have been possible without the love and support of our loyal customers," the restaurant wrote.
