One of the best Indian restaurants in the area

Been to Jewel of India at least a dozen times in the last 3 years, usually with different groups of friends. It never disappoints. The food is always fresh and delicious and beautifully presented. There is also a lunch buffet that has some unusual and well prepared dishes. It is way better than... read more

Not only is the restaurant beautiful on the inside, the food is wonderful! The Sunday buffet cannot be beat. There are lots of options for all kinds of tastes including many vegetarian options. The staff are always helpful and quick to take care of you.

Very nice comfortable atmosphere in a surprise location. Perfect combination of food and a wait staff that was there to answer questions about the dishes and kept us feeling like it was a great choice for a low key special evening out. We love it.

This place is conveniently located in Silver Spring off the beltway (has easy parking too). The interior is tastefully decorated in traditional Indian decor and white table clothes. The waiters are courteous and punctual, the menu has a nice selection of typical Indian fare with nan, chapatti, raita, sides available. It was a tasty treat for a mid-day outing. Very... More

Just walk into Jewel of India hidden in the shopping center along a small strip and your nose will be treated to the rich and exotic spices of Indian cooking. Every time I've been there - which is at least a few times each year - I have been delighted by the food my friends and I have ordered. Any... More

We had been to this restaurant for their fabulous buffet lunch and wanted to try the dinner menu. We were not disappointed. From the crisp pappads served with both tamarind and mint sauces through to dessert, everything was excellent. We had Lamb Rogan Josh and the Vegetarian Thali (an assortment of dishes), with enough left over for another meal for... More

From the warm welcome and prompt seating to the very tasty meal and excellent service the experience could not have been better. Of the many Indian restaurants in the Bethesda Silver Spring area, Jewel of India has become my favorite.

The food here is consistently very good and the service is great. Our favorite is the lunch time buffet offered every day, including weekends. The choices vary but always include some familiar and some less common offerings and always includes many vegetarian offerings and usually two desserts. I would be hard pressed to name favorites because I have never had... More

I came to this restaurant on the recommendation of an Indian customer of mine. The food did not disappoint. I don't think there was anything that I didn't like at this all you can eat buffet for $13. The waiters are very attentive and keep my glass of water filled. If I finished a plate and went up to get... More
