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

I wish Indian restaurants opened from 11:00am on, but they close at 3:00pm and don't open until 5:00pm. I like to get a head start on dinner. Anyway, it was worth the wait. The Jewel was a jewel. The decor was elegant with charger plates on the table. I am not an adventurous diner so I stick to dishes that... More

This is my family's favorite place to go for celebrations. The food is fantastic, the service is friendly and flawless, the music is soothing, and the atmosphere is very pleasant. We have sampled from each part of the menu, including fish, chicken, lamb and vegetarian dishes, drinks and dessert. Not one thing has been less than superb. The only problem... More

Our new favorite hometown Indian food spot! Portions are generous, service impeccable and food out of this world. Don't let the location fool you - this is first class all the way. Try it!

The menu was extensive and most of the food quite tasty, although heavy. The biggest problem was that we waited an hour after we put in our order until we received the food. Granted, it was a Friday night, but they could have at least come by our table with an explanation and some naan to tied us over. The... More

I love Jewel of India's lunch buffet! their selection is very wide, their food quality incomparable. Evening visits are great too, with beautiful environment and the same delicious food and courteous service.

I am right now enjoying some of the yummiest leftovers I've ever had, Navratan Korma from the restaurant we went to last night, Jewel of India. The food was just plain awesome and the service was great. Everything was so tasty, and I was surprised at how exceptional the Vegetable Samosas and the aforementioned Korma was. Very, very well done!

Having travel to three different cities in India I am a bit of a snob when it comes to Indian food!!! This place from the entrance make you feel as if you are in India at an upscale restaurant. It is decorated is warm colors and lots of jewels. It truly is music to ones eyes. They staff is very... More

This fine Indian restauarant remains great as it completes its third year. With an evolving menu that retains the traditional dishes, it is still truly a gem. We had lamb lalmas (very spicey) and kulfie (Indian specialty akin to ice cream) both of which were four stars. Management is on the premises and ever diligent. Ample shopping center parking off...

I went for the weekday lunch buffet with work colleagues, several of whom are Indian nationals. The dishes were nearly all north Indian style and were fresh and well prepared. I especilly liked the chicken archai, chicken vindaloo and chili chicken for their spiciness. My vegetarian colleagues were a bit disappointed in the number of vegetable dishes available to them....
