There are still the best curry in Aberdeen by far! Visited Jewel in The Crown as a party of 4. Warm welcome and friendly staff. They knew the menu inside out and were happy to make recommendations based on individual tastes.. It's a true testament to them that the food is all being made fresh and they can alter and... More

Good food and definitely one of the best Indians in Aberdeen but also the most expensive I've frequented (I always have the same order).

I enjoy all types of food and only occasionally eat Indian food, however I make a point of eating in this restaurant when I travel to Aberdeen, as I regard it as the best Indian restaurant that I have visited. On the last occasion in April this year I was in a party of five, all of whom had different... More

Excellent food, attentive service, good attention to detail and a bill that always looks and feels pretty reasonable - my favourite and always in the top 3 Indians in the town.

Arrived to the restaurant and was greeted by very attentive staff. The food was all very tasty and was cooked fresh to our liking. Throughout the meal, the staff were always attentive and pleasant. The naan breads for me were the bet thing they did by a country mile. Easy and accessible with parking, I'd highly recommend this restaurant to... More

Don't be put off by the decor,surroundings.Yes ,it is a tired building and the carpets need renewing.Toilets are clean and well maintained although awkward to get to. Foremost this is a restaurant ,where people go to eat and they enjoy the delicious food. That's the nub,the food is reasonably priced but the aromas & tastes are exceptional.It follows the original... More

My family friends love it and I have been coming here for over 20 years! The food and servic is what it is all about. It is not a place to be in a hurry as the food is prepared to order and it takes time. It is best enjoyed when you relax and enjoy taking the time!
