Food - excellent, service - very slow

We were a table of four booked for 6.30 pm. Prompt service with wine, water and poppadoms. 10 - 15 minute wait before food order taken. No starters, 4 main courses rice and nans. What was obvious was the main food coming out of the kitchen was a constant flow of carry outs that were being... read more

Four of us ate here on a Saturday evening. Our table was booked for 6.30 and we arrived on time, were seated and presented with poppadums and condiments. We ordered our main courses at about 6.45, then waited......and waited......and waited. We were on the point of leaving when the food finally arrived over an hour after ordering. It was excellent...

We had heard of this restaurant by reputation,and booked up at 5.30pm for a 7pm meal on Friday. It must have been the last available table as the restaurant was very busy, with people queuing. We were taken to our table right away. Not only was this the most superlative curry either of us had ever eaten, the service was... More

Fantastic meal after work yesterday evening with 3 work colleagues. The food as always was delicious. Service absolutely faultless and atmosphere so good. Totally fits it's name and is definitely a jewel. Thank you

Been to many Indian restaurants but this one is the tops. Excellent quality ingredients served beautifully. I have been to the jewel on numerous occasions and the food is excellent every time. I have tried other ones in Aberdeen but always return to the Jewel. If you enjoy Indian food then this is a must, you won't be disappointed .

It has been too long since we last visited the Jewel but that was our loss. Family run restuarant with brothers front of house and father in the kitchen (although he was on holiday). Welcomed as long lost friends, food excellent, service just right, without question the best Indian in Aberdeen.

I've been to the Jewel in the Crown several times, both with work and friends. Every time the quality is very high, and the service excellent. As with most restaurants serving Indian food in the city, the menu is large and varied. I've tried a few different dishes and I'm never disappointed. They have on site parking (rare for city...

Me and my family visit this often and we still don't know the names of the food we eat. Not an issue they remember for us funny enough, or we just describe what sort of dish we want and they will decide for us, never fail. Great service. There super size bbq prawn is bit expensive at about £10 per... More

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
