A WONDERFUL FIND

This is a lovely Indian restaurant - great menu and quite diverse. I would recommend the lamb chops - it's like nothing you've ever had - they are tender, not too spicy but wonderfully flavorful. In fact, everyone loved their entrees - however, be careful, some very hots peppers were hidden and... read more

This place has a great lunch buffet. The variety is always great with enough options for carnivores and vegetarians alike. I especially like their deserts. I have never left here disappointed and I've been here at least 10 times.

The food here is great and the atmosphere inside is not what you would expect from a strip mall in White Oak. It's a great spot for a fun night out!

Good service here. You feel like your on Air India's First Class cabin with the wait staff treating you like a King/Queen during your dinner flight experience. The wait staff provides you hot dinner plates for your entrees. My favorite dish is Lamb Pasandra. Yummy delicious dish as an entrée. Appetizer dish I always order Garlic Shrimp. Yes, I realized...

This north Indian restaurant is indeed a jewel, as the name implies. The decor is attractive and clean. The servings are ample. The cooking is delicious and authentic. And, the servers were extremely polite and efficient. The "crown" in which this jewel is set -- the Hillandale shopping strip -- is a bit downmarket as is the neighborhood generally. But... More

This restaurant serves fresh authentic Indian cuisine. Nice sized portions to share. The alcoholic beverages are strong. Jewel of India is located in a strip mall but do not be deterred it is a nice, clean place which is beautifully decorated. The staff is friendly and the manager/owner (I assume) made rounds visiting patrons which was a nice touch. I... More

Located in a strip mall, this Indian Restaurant serves up one of the best North Indian, Mughlai dinners. We have mouth watering Malai Kofta, Buttered Naan bread and Chicken Korma with White Basmati Rice. Simply delicious. The Chicken kabab was succulent. Nice change from the slew of Thai & Vietnamese restaurants in the area.

The lunch buffet here on Sunday has a nice collection of various types of Indian food. What was interesting to me, is that while they had a few of the staples like Daal, Chicken Masala and Tandoori Chicken, they mixed it up and had a number of entrees that are not common on the lunch buffet including goat biryani.

The weekend budget here is a wonderful, amazing bargain. They offer a wide variety of dishes and it's all really good. The service is attentive and friendly, just like it is at their sister vegetarian restaurant, Woodlands.
