Great Take-Away, Phone First Though!

Third time we've ordered a take away from TJITC when up 'here' from 'down South' visiting relatives. Each time it's been great. Today was Chicken Dhansak, Chicken Jalfrezi, Chicken Korma, Honey Duck and Butter Murg Tikka (plus breads, rice and bhajis). It's no cheaper than Guildford (£7-£10 a main... read more

Food was nice but sauces were a little too thick for our liking.We had a set menu each which was plenty for one person. This included a starter, main, popadoms/nann dessert or beverage. Staff very attentive.

Booked a table for 7.30 - arrived on time - it was half an hour after we sat down that anyone came to take an order for drinks never mind food. The food order was taken another 15 minutes later when the drinks arrived. After another half an hour when they arrived to ask if we wanted any more drinks... More

Visited the Jewel in the Crown having had a good luck around Dumfries and not found anywhere we fancied. The fact we could park outside was a major plus and probably made up for a fairly uninspiring exterior. Once inside the decor is a pleasant surprise and there is a nice ambience. The service was friendly and the meal was... More

We have used this restaurant as carry out in the past and we're happy. However, the offering we had last night was very poor. Three meals were identical, soggy mixed pakora that was tasteless and one inedible meal. We will not be back.

My dish was described thus - Duck Murg Samba A wonderful combination of flavours, cooked in a special sweet and sour coconut sauce carefully prepared by our chef. was a lump of duck in what appeared to be an uncooked mix of...

Had lunch here with firends and ordered from the lunch deal menu. We were the only ones in the resturant and not a big group, yet it was exceptionally slow. When the food came it was ok, but not particularly nice, not worth waiting for. We won't be back.
