A gastronomic delight.

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

We tried out the lunch buffet at Jewel of India in Silver Spring for the first time two days ago after reading that this restaurant was one of the 100 Best Cheap Eats in the Washington DC area in Washingtonian Magazine. The meal lived up to the praise. My husband and I both had iced tea and the buffet, which... More

I go for the lunch buffet which is amazing! Lots of vegetarian selections and a great variety as I have gone on different days of the week. Very nice interior and staff is very courteous and friendly.

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 one member of our party ended up biting... 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...
