Good food and good value.

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... read 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.

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.

Not a nice restaurant, very small tables not big enough, food poor , the best thing about this meal was the man bread, the starter was poor, the chicken in the main was brown and fatty not breast meat, wasn't the quickest either, just not what I expected.

Been here many times in the past and have loved it. Unfortunately the past 3 visits have been shocking. Having to wait over an hour and a half for my main after my starter is not my idea of a meal out, especially when people who arrived after me had been given their food. Was the chicken that fresh they... More
