the Jewel in the Crown is the best Indian restaurant in Dumfries. The staff are always incredibly friendly and helpful, the food is always consistently good and the venue is well priced. I have spent many a pleasant evening enjoying a curry in the Jewel in the Crown.

Pauline and I have been here a few times over the years, but I am afraid that with a heavy heart, I can announce that this will be our last visit to the said establishment. In terms of the positives, the decor does appear to have approved slightly and it no longer appears to have been kitted out in second-hand... More

Have been here many times and always had excellant service and food. However tonight the service was extremely slow waiting at least one hour before our starter arrived even though not that busy. The people who had come in for take outs being served much quicker than those in restaurant. Maybe we should have done same. The meal when it... More

As were staying in Dumfries we thought an Indian would be nice. We eventually settled on this one and walked from the hotel past Robbie Burns house and place he was buried. Interesting ambience but quite quiet for a Monday evening and didn't have to wait too long for our meal - presentation very good. Although visiting we thought this... More

Always good food. Nice and freshly prepared and they will do special dishes or change dishes to your tastes. Slightly pricey but quality makes up for it.

I have eaten here twice several years apart and on both occasions the food was very tasty. On my most recent visit, we booked a table for 7.30 on a Saturday. On arriving, the waiter was very prompt in asking to take our order and we had to ask twice for more time (we weren't chatting a lot, we just... More

We have never had a bad meal here over many years. The new décor has enhanced the feel good factor. The menu is sufficiently varied and Atic and Raj even suggest further dishes made specially by the chef. The service, attention and friendliness of all the staff is first class. At busy times a little patience may be required, no... More
