I had a variety of vegetarian food. Everything I ate was delicious :) Service was great and they even gave me a deal so I got to try more dishes.

I am from India and have been living in Ireland for the past number of years. I like to sample the Indian cuisines in local restaurants often. After hearing rave reviews about this place, I decided to test it out. First of all it took ages for someone to take our order, we waited close enough to 20 mins. For... More

Not an expert on Indian food by any means but have developed a fondness for Korma and interesting starters in recent years which led me to drop in to the Jewel In The Crown in South William Street. Place was about half full yet having invited my attention outside when I got inside I was told to wait while they... More

And if you know proprietors of Indian restaurants, you should know the standards are already very high. The food was perfect, from the plate of pickle that arrives when you are seated to each delicious dish served to you. Everything we ordered was perfectly prepared, spinach, potato, chickpeas, tandoori mixed grill, and the best korma we have ever had. Two... More

I am from London and have lived in Cork for 4 years. My only complaint has always been that I miss Indian food. I have been to five different restaurants and they all got it wrong. I always order the same: onion bhaji, sag aloo, chicken rogan josh, naan and pilau rice. No restaurant can get all perfect but this... More

When you walk by this unassuming restaurant actually stop and ho in. The food is perfection. From the free appetizer of poppadums with onion chutney,mango chutney- both delicious and mint yoghurt or lime pickle this all gets the tastebuds going. We then had chicken pakora beautiful as well & onion bahjiwhich was nice also. Main we had lamb dopiaza and... More

I ate here with an Irish friend. I've eaten Indian food in London, India, Hong Kong, South Africa, Cook Islands, New Zealand, and the U.S., among other places. This was by far the poorest Indian food of any of my experiences! We tried the early bird special because it came with appetizers, naan (or a semblance of it), and chutneys.... More

Having been reared on curries and having lived in Birmingham uk I'm used to eating at some of the best Indian restaurants . I felt this restaurant was geared to the tourist market I'm sure the locals would eat curry elsewhere . The waiter was apathetic when we arrived . The menu choice I thought was very poor we had...
