Went here without a booking after favouring the early bird menu to others in the street! We were given a table with no cutlery or napkins and waited 5-10 minutes for a waiter to ask if we wanted drinks! Food was served very quickly and at an averaged standard! Felt rushed to eat it and noticed the waiters standing over... More

I have been coming here on and off for about15 years I think and I keep coming back. Other restaurants have come and gone but these guys have stood the test of time. Decor has not changed a lot and more importantly the food is still wonderful. Staff have always been very accommodating and friendly. If you want great Indian... More

The quality of the food was good (considering that it is in Indian food in Dublin) and the service is slow. When I visited there were only 2 people to serve and had to ask them twice how long will it take to get my order. There is special rate if you order food between 4pm to 7 pm.

Having dined on South William Street before, we chose Jewel of India this time for a pre theatre matinee lunch. Lovely food from a short but nonetheless variable menu. Approx. 5 starters and 5 main-courses, good selection of bottled beers, and wine. Décor somewhat shabby, and needs some attention. However the food is fresh and tasty and lunch price of... More
