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.

I stopped in for lunch and had their buffet. It had a good mix of items (10 or so) and everything I tried was excellent. Even the naan was great; very flaky and light. The place was clean with a nice environment.

The food was tasty, those wonderful Indian spices, but not too spicy, just right. An abundant buffet. The naan was brought to the table and was warm and just right. The server was pleasant and helpful. If we go through South Portland again, I would certainly go there.

Don't miss the coconut soup. Really great Indian food cooked to order. Pleasant family atmosphere, and they show Bollywood movies sometimes. Pleasant wait staff.

With the heavy snow, managed to drive as far as this restaurant. I was the only one, walked in on the owner and his family having dinner watching a movie on the large screen. They dropped the volume (I am not into Indian movies). Food was good. I wanted to enjoy food better, but rushed to get back to the... More

I wanted to get out of our dining-out rut and try someplace new for a change. I've driven by this place a million times and have always thought the same thing - 'it's practically located in a strip mall; there's no way it could be any good!' My bad. This place is great. I look forward to going again. The... More

Tried Jewel of India in So Portland for the first time -- husband, son and myself. All three of us were delighted with our meals. We shared pakoras and papadum and samosas. Perfect. The choices for the sauces were excellent.Then husband had a lamb dish; son and I shared a vegetarian dish - a vegetable stew. Amazing! Flavors were strong... More

We have been here several times and never a miss. The dining room is well kept and they are always gracious when we arrive. We know very little about Indian food and always try to have something different. The wait staff is proud of their culture and eager to answer any questions. Take the plunge and ask them as we...
