Went to this restaurant on a Sunday evening when they had an offer of £12.95 for your starter, main, rice, breads and tea/coffee or a sweet. The food was great. Enjoyed the meal and would definitely recommend. Bar prices were reasonable.

The staff are all very friendly, and... More

First visit and most likely my last. Over priced for what it is. Chicken was tough and chewy, and the Jalfrezi wasn't spicy in the slightest. Heard several complaints of below par food so maybe it was a bad night? But definitely not worth the money paid.

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
