My partner and I visited the 'Jewel in the Crown' on 27th June. Although we arrived late in the evening and had not reserved a table, the staff greeted us warmly. The menu is extensive and the staff are helpful with their recommendations, although for me it was always going to be the Chicken Biriyani in a hot sauce. Both... More

Have eaten here a few times now. The food is always good, but this time upon receiving the bill it was way over-priced for what we had! I couldn't fault the food just the price! Staff are always attentive and aim to please. I can get the same quality food much less elsewhere! Also the tables are close together, you... More

The jewel in the crown had amazing curries, but, well I'm afraid there is always a but, my husband and I went on a Saturday and it was packed and noisy, too noisy. So to eat well, pay a lot and wait a lot for the food in a noisy room, ah well, would rather think it twice before I... More

Had been to Jewel in the Crown with a couple of friends late on Saturday night (11-Jul). Welcomed by very friendly staff. Ordered a mix of veg and non-veg dishes and they tasted great! Top class customer service and attention to detail. Anyone travelling to Aberdeen, give this place and try and i bet you wont be disappointed!

I expected much better quality chicken for the price paid ( £14.95 a main course). It was very cheap chicken. We asked for plain rice but it came highly perfumed. Naan bread was ok, The onion bhajis were stodgy, with bits of onion skin in them! Drinks are way overpriced. The waiters were faultless, but I hear they don't get... More

Booked for two people 8pm on a Saturday night. Entering from the rear having taken use of their car park was a bit disoriented coming through the door with mirrors from ceiling to floor. Was seated without being offered any beverage. Few minutes later some papadums were served and drinks order was taken. Having been in the restaurant for 40... More

I went back to this restaurant after many years of being away from Aberdeen, I had been here quite regularly prior to my absence, the staff,food, and environment are still as good as they were 15 years ago, No wonder they are still thriving, one of the staff even recognised me from so long ago, which says a lot for...
