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.

We had lunch with friends who raved about this place and I can see why. The lunch buffet was flat-out fabulous. Lots of choice and the food was delicious. Even though it was a buffet, the servers couldn't have been more attentive, bringing drinks and clearing plates. Make sure you eat here!

We love this restaurant. The food is outstanding and the service can not be beat. We get carry out also and it is just as good. The ambiance in the room is perfect. It really is good. Go there.

Jewel's midday buffets are outstanding! Sat & Sun, Sunday's can get crowded quickly, but always worth it. Buffets vary each time too, but there will always be a favorite masala or paneer served. A fave go-to restaurant!
