Nice lunch

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... read 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.

The food is good but service is too late and not at all efficient. If you have patience to wait for around one hour after giving your order then that's fine. You have to request them several times even for basic things like water, napkin and even bill. Overall ok except for waiting.

The food was very bad... essentially they have been in Dublin for a while and have confused longevity with quality.

I wasn't sure what to expect from and Indian place in Dublin and was pleasantly surprised that the Jewel was just as good as many of the places I've tried in London. Good food, good service, good prices.

We ended up here on a busy Saturday night and got a nice table outside. We also availed of the early bird menu for 12.95 which included popadoms with sauces, a starter and main course with side dish. Cannot complain about anything and would definitely come back for more.
