Not what it use to be

Hmmm... this use to be a fabulous restaurant a few years back but the service and prices leave a lot to be desired. The food, however and the interior is terrific. Not a really safe area either, so watch out for petty crime... just be aware of your surroundings.

First class service. Very good food. Only problem is with big bus parking in front. Still one can compromise on it for good taste of Indian food. Best luck & see you again.

I am certainly no expert when it comes to Indian food. I leave that up to my Indian friends. But Jewel of India does a really nice job with their curries and their friendly service made for an all-around pleasant dining experience.

The four of us tried this curry house and were surprised to be told there is no wine list. Being embarrassed to ask the price, I accepted the single unknown bottle offered. When the bill arrived, I was shocked at the wine price and quietly told the waitress that as there is no wine list, she should announce the price... More

We lived close to this restaurant in Cape Town, and usually love Indian food.. but were hesitant to try this restaurant due to so-so reviews. We were really pleasantly surprised with the food, it was delicious. Well made, authentic tasting and quality. We got there a bit early in the evening before it got busy and really had absolutely no... More

I believe this restaurant recently moved to a hotel on Main Road in Green Point. The food was very good, however as the place got busier, everything became hectic. We received our entree about three minutes after our samosas came out. While things were getting busy, an older gentleman who I think owns the restaurant, was heard talking on the... More
