Last minute decision to book a table last weekend and were lucky to get one. I thought the staff were lovely and very efficient. The food was very good and some nice changes from the usual Indian menus. There was so much we asked for a doggy bag and left with a well wrapped bag of leftovers delivered with a... More

The waiter in particular was rude and had bad attitude he was forgetting drinks orders and when reminded dumped the drink in front of the wrong person! He also had to be reminded that we were waiting... More

Very nice meal, food well presented and very tasty. Kingfisher and Cobra lager both served on draught. Good value for money, certainly worth a visit if you're up in Aberdeen

I live nearby and regularly pick up takeaway from this restaurant. The staff are very courteous- they will even carry your delivery up to the street for you, which is a nice, old fashioned touch. The food is truly excellent and therefore this restaurant is always busy, even midweek. Book ahead!

My friend and I dined here on a Saturday evening in August 2014. The food was lovely, no complaints there however the service was ropey. We were left waiting at the front door for 10 minutes before being served, once served the waiter gave us the wrong drinks, then took us starters which we had not ordered. Both mistakes were... More

I used to eat here regularly (almost exclusively for curries), but now we are living out of town, I have been neglecting the Jewel. Went back last week, and am happy to report that nothing has changed. The food is still delicious, the staff still amazingly friendly, and the whole experience wonderful. True, as everything is prepared fresh, this is... More

Met up here with several colleagues for curry. Absolutely delighted with the quality, service, and atmosphere. We have decided this will be our regular meet-up location. What's not to love about a great curry?

Have eaten here a few times and never been disappointed. Service is of a high standard and the food is very tasty. Large portions of all the dishes I would recommend sharing the rice and Nan breads between at least two otherwise you will end up with a lot of leftovers. If you like Indian I would recommend going here.... More
