Outstanding Food and Ambience

A real gem located in a fairly low end shopping center right off the Beltway on New Hampshire Ave. Lovely interior featuring a great Sunday Brunch and daily lunch buffets. Friendly and accommodating staff gets it right.

A colleague recommended this restaurant. Located in an outdoor shopping center one would not expect such a nice ambiance once inside from the music, impeccable service and crisp white table clothes. The menu was extensive and the wine list had a nice selection. The food had incredible aroma and outstanding flavor. This location is easy on and off of I-95... More

We ate at Jewel of India on a Friday evening, and ate early (arrived 5:15). Service was excellent and the waiters were quite friendly. We had one appetizer, one bread and two main dishes; and the bill was $37.00 before taxes. The quality of the food was excellent and the portions generous. But I did think the meal a bit... More

The location for this place is odd: in a strip mall nowhere near down town Silver Spring. There is nothing else of interest around it. But the Jewel is very satisfying. Service is wonderful - very helpful if you don't know what things are on the menus - and they actually recommended we order less than we'd planned - and... More

We have a favorite restaurant that we go to in Columbia for Indian food but, found this place on TripAdvisor when we wanted to find a place to meet friends half way. Great food, reasonable prices, and great service!

We met friends who had not been there before on a Friday night. We were all pleased with the great aromas from the Jewel even before we were seated. Food- a range of chicken(from the Indo-Chinese part), lamb, shrimp and a veggie dish-all terrific.Good service. Our friends cannot wait to go back. Neither can we.

I've never ventured to Virginia's terra incognito where I'm told there are many great Indian restaurants, but this place has credible, though not fantastic food. Many of the sauces seemed heavily laden (or glistening) with thickeners. The spicing is what one would expect in timid Maryland. It could be so much more, deeper and more complex. The atmosphere is nicer... More

I have to note that we arrived late for lunch - after 1:30pm which is never a good time for a lunch buffet. However, several people arrived after we did, so they should have been refreshing the chafing dishes. The naan was hot and crisp, but other than that, we were very disappointed in this restaurant which has won all... More

Don't hesitate... Go! Everything was delicious, I wish we lived nearby. Thanks trip advisor, this place truly deserves it's number 1 ranking! (Samosa chat to die for, as was the red chilli lamb dish. Can't remember the name... Lass maal or something like that!) Portions very generous, yay for leftovers!!!! Don't hesitate... Go there today.

I am so happy we tried this restaurant. We love Indian food but are often disappointed by dreary, overcooked curries, heavy breads, and poor service at our local eateries. Jewel of India features very well prepared, fresh tasting food and attentive service.
