Sparse decor, but pretty good good

My spouse and I were in town on vacation. We were tired and looking for a good Indian restaurant (usually a good bet for a good vegetarian selection if you don't know the area). Jewel of India didn't disappoint. Although their website didn't mention it, they have wine (always a plus) both by... read more

My husband did not want Indian food for lunch, but I did so I decided to try take-out here, my first time being at this restaurant. The inside was cheerful and it seemed the $9.99 luncheon buffet appealed to many folks. While I waited for my order, these people went back several times to refill their plates. A customer can...

Excellent food: Please try paneer tikka(starter) and veg amritsari (curry) Awesome place: This place is good for big parties too. Spacious and quite place. Great location: Shopping mall is near by. Good service. Reasonable rates with lots of good vegetarian options. This is definitely a place to go when you are super hungry and craving for indian food.

While my wife enjoyed her two days of Chinese take out from Evergreen next door, I loved my two days of this restaurant's excellent food. The first time here, I tried the Vindaloo with lamb, which was so fragrantly spiced even my wife sampled some. We both loved it - it was delicious. On my return visit, I got the... More

Food was Good, not great. Lamb was moist with good flavor and a little muttony. Apps. hit or miss. Rice was watery....and made me think of Minute rice(can't be?). One bread was soggy. Bathroom not clean. Plastic covered menu soiled and sticky. Atmosphere is rather stark.Service was friendly and efficient. Take out appears popular.

I love this place and have for years. I have eaten at quite a few Indian restaurants around the country. I've had buffets and ordered off of menus. As far as I'm concerned it is the best Indian buffet I have eaten at. My wife and I drive down from Bath to go here, and we pass Indian restaurants on... More

This is a great place to go when you are in the mood for Indian food. The tastes, aroma's and atmosphere are perfect for a small group of friends or coworkers to gather and enjoy. The only thing I found not up my my expectations was the level of spice. I would have expected more of a spicy flavor in... More

All of our take-out food was ready quickly and was tasty and well flavoured, but our dessert never made it into the bag! We would return but will check our order next time!

Very attentive and friendly service. Our menu favorites - mango lassi, saag paneer and chicken tikka - were super tasty.
