Excellent service with the right attitude. I have eaten there dozens of times and never had a bad meal. It is always consistently good which says a lot about a restaurant. Consistency reveals the professionals from the amateurs and they are professionals. One of our favourites.

A group of us have been coming here for our weekly brunch for a couple of months now. The food is good and the service is friendly and reasonable quick. None of us have an Indian meal but rather have full breakfasts or other things. My favourite is the Bondi Open Grill which has garlic prawns, avocado, tomato and cheese... More

The view is beautiful overlooking rose bay, but the food and service is substandard. We went for a meal with friends and found the glassware to be dirty and the surrounding area very dirty, which did put me off but I was 1 of 4 and there's not much around that area so we stuck to our guns and stayed....

One of the best Indian restaurants in the east. Consistently good food, excellent service and a lovely locale. They offer a wide range of Indian dishes and we have frequented this restaurant for both lunches and dinners and have never been disappointed.

First of all, the location of Jewel on the Bay is just terrific. Especially when seated outside on a warm day with a light breeze as we were. The menu is a bit odd as one side are the usual Indian dishes but they also have hamburgers. The food was good and enjoyed by all!

Think I wrote a review a few years back. We re visited Jewel as it was so great the last time. I am not a great Indian food fan but this seems to be a bit different as it tastes fresh. The menu is extensive and you can BYO your own wine. The atmosphere has a good vibe. The Naan... More

We have been to this restaurant several times, and are selfishly a bit reluctant to share it! We dont want to be unable to get into our local Indian. We thoroughly enjoyed our Chicken Tikka Masala; saffron rice; dahl; samosas, and minced lamb kebabs. A beautiful night certainly helped, and to sit outside and see the harbour lights is most...

Not the first time I eat here but probably the last. It was busy, Saturday night, and the service was far too slow, slow to bring glasses for the bottle of water, slow to take the order, then very slow to bring the food. And it was noisy, very, before throwing in a couple of birthday song rackets. The food... More

Excellent service, good wine list but the food whilst tasty didn't quite live up to expectations. We ordered two curries a Lamb Vindaloo and a Butter Chicken both were ok but bland and the Vindaloo wasn't as hot as most.

The location is outstanding. The food yummy, spicy, tender....very very good. But...the male staff! 1. Stop chewing gum lads! 2. Do not hover over guests like we are about to run away and not pay the bill - be discrete. 3. If you need to do running repairs on a faulty bit of equipment, don't drag aforementioned equipment past seated... More
