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.

One of the best choices around the area for good Indian food at a reasonable price. As a hungry group of four, we shared the tasty Papadi Chat and the somewhat spicy Masala Calamari as appetizers. In our main meal, the tandoori dishes stood out. The Tandoori Pomfret brought us two whole, succulent fish, nicely charred with a very flavorful... More

Large, spacious, clean, white table cloths, attentive staff, great food. Been here twice and was not disappointed. The appetizers are awesome and the lamb and curry chicken are fantastic. Also, the Mulligawtawny soup was divine. If you want a great Indian meal for decent prices, go here!!

We ate here again this week and had a terrific meal. It deserves its rating as the best restaurant in Silver Spring. Despite its location in an unassuming shopping center, it is easy to find, just north of the Beltway, It would be worth a detour from the tourist routine in downtown DC. This time, although I'm by no means... More

This is still a great place for a very good meal at a reasonable price. We shared three dishes, one a traditional Indian lamb, another more vegetarian, and another off the Indo-Chinese part of the menu. Each was terrific. Service first rate, too. It has been a favorite since it opened. Quality remains high as ever.

Jewel of India is appropriately named it is gem. Trip Advisor’s reviews are right on it is excellent. I had never been there before associating the shopping center with a thrift store but the inside of the restaurant is immaculately clean. They did a very good job of making the place feel upscale. The food and service are both excellent.... More

On some occasions, the menu was not available and I was required to order from the buffet. I do not care for that. When the menu is available, the palak chat is amazing as are the lamb korma and the coconut curry chicken. The service takes a while to warm up, but when they do, they are excellent. One suggestion... More

Some of the best indian food I've eaten outside of India. This is a must do, and a phenomenal value for lunch. The bread -- nan is served as part of the buffet -- is outstanding and right out of the oven, as was the paratha that I ordered for an extra charge of $3. Don't let the shopping center... More
