Pleasantly surprised

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.

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

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.

Read reviews on here and thought we'd give this a try for a carry out meal last week. 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.

Stopped at The Jewel in the Crown for a meal this evening, whilst looking through the menu we noticed that there was a Banquet Night offer every Sunday, we opted for this deal, which I must say was excellent value for money. I was expecting the portions to be reduced due to the cheaper price, however the portions were as... More

Visiting friends in Dumfries for the weekend, we all went here for a meal. Food was very tasty though not too spicy for an Indian. Surroundings were nice and service was excellent. Very friendly staff, a bit quiet at first but once we were settled they were chatting away. Will definitely return.

I visited the Jewel in the Crown for a Buffet Night and was pleasantly surprised. For less than £10 I had a fantastic meal. The staff were welcoming and the surroundings clean and well presented. The Buffet consisted of trays of hot and cold food set out on tables. A starter , main and dessert were all on offer in... More
