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.

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.
