Great little find in Biddeford, Indian food as good as any I had while living in NYC. I often dine here with a friend who cannot eat dairy and they are always willing to leave it out or make something special for her. It is hard not to order 3 or 4 dishes (more food than you can possibly eat)... More

Walk into this restaurant and you get a wonderful whiff of all the good spices which go into the dishes here. The food is wonderful and authentic. Chef Prem is a master and its a nice place to sit in for a few hours. By all means try it and go back again. Try some of the dishes you have... More

I ate at this restaurant when they first opened several years ago. I had a good experience back then and wanted a repeat. Unfortunately, this was not the case during my visit in November 2013. I stopped in for lunch on a Wednesday to find it empty except for the wait staff. I tried to order some coffee (on the... More

Behind this unassuming storefront lies a pleasant surprise - authentic, delicious Indian food in the heart of downtown Biddeford. Returning today after 3 years, I was happy to see the quality of the food hasn't changed. Dishes here are authentic, flavorful and reasonably priced. The restaurant appears to be family-run, and service is pleasant and courteous. On our most recent... More

Fantastic food at a great price - this family run business is a great place to eat at if you are in Biddeford. My favorites (please forgive all of the spelling errors) Lamb Rogan Josh, Vegetable Samosas, Coconut Soup, Lamb Briyani, Tandori Chicken, Peshwari Nan, Mango Lassi and their fabulous chai tea . . . I'm there at least once... More

I have been dining at the Jewel of India for many years and have always had very good and very tasty food. The service varies a bit as in the past there has been quite a turnover in wait staff but the sometimes slightly lesser service is well compensated by the excellent food. The Naan breads are cooked to perfection... More

We have stopped here several times when traveling through Maine. The food has always been consistently good, and the staff generally attentive and friendly. Good value for the money.

Jewel of India has been a favorite of ours for years. We had dinner there on Friday night and it is still amazing. Everything was delicious. We ordered the saag paneer, lamb curry and chicken tikki masala. We ordered it spicy and it was just right.

Like another reviewer stated "Good, basic Indian food in Biddeford". If I'm craving Chicken Tikka Masala and don't want to drive to Portland, this will due. The prices are just a little crazy for what you get as sometimes I have to dig through my meal to find the litle bits of chicken. I'm OK with a small serving, just... More

Nothing terribly bad or great about this place. Decor and service were decent but the curries tasted like what comes from the supermarket in tins.
