I have eaten in this restaurant several times and I have never been disappointed. It is always busy no matter what day you go so I would always book in advance. The staff are all extremely friendly and fun. I love Indian food so I have been to a few Indian restaurants but this one is definitely my favourite in... More

Jewel in the Crown is my restaurant of choice for birthdays, anniversaries, reunions, special treats and casual dining! Always top of my list. The service is unreal, the food is unreal and the size of the naan breads are unreal. All food is completely fresh and because of that It can sometimes take a bit longer before your meal arrives...

I used to love the Jewel and the Crown. It was everything an Indian should be. We went for a work dinner in early December with just 4 people. It was quiet as we went early so the fact the service was attentive was no surprise. We had: 2 drinks each (either beer, wine or a coke) 1 starter each... More

Had our alternative Christmas dinner here and as expected the food and service were top notch. We rarely buy Indian takeaways or visit the restaurants in Aberdeen as often the food disappoints. The Jewel in the Crown has never failed to deliver every time we have visited and is firm family favourite. We chose from the standard menu rather than... More

By far the best Indian restaurant in Aberdeen without any doubt. I've been going here for years and the food is always excellent. It's a family run business and the dad does the cooking. The menu is varied, plus they'll cook something for you if it's not on the menu. Staff are great and very friendly. It's well worth the... More

Jewel in the Crown is always an excellent place to visit. I use it for family & friends lunches/dinners and also business meetings. We've had company lunches there as well and they have catered for large groups with the same excellent service and food. If you want an excellent curry in Aberdeen look no further than Jewel in the Crown.
