Worst Indian restaurant I've ever been to. Had ordered just a naan and Malai Kofta, the staff didn't bother to note down and as expected, we got just one of them after a long wait. When asked for the other, which we got after another 20 mins,she just placed the naan in a rude manner and seemed unapologetic about the... More

Terrific food and service! Our meal was also inexpensive. We would definitely recommend the Jewel of India.

Things change...sadly! Three years ago, when last I visited this little restaurant at the edge of the U of Minnesota complex on the West Bank, I enjoyed one of the best Indian meals of my life outside of Britain. Yesterday's meal made me wish that I had opted for a burger joint instead. What didn't come out of a can... More

Love how unique this place is. First, the food is always excellent and the prices are low. The fun begins in the parking lot when the old man who I can only assume owns the place asks you multiple times if you are going to eat at the Jewel of India. It could be considered confrontational. At times I have... More

I placed an order to go. The woman was not rude but she did not seem to understand English. The food, however, was terrible. I ordered the lamb curry. It was nasty and whoever heard of putting broccoli and chunks of tomato in curry? I have eaten at many Indian establishments and none of them have ever done that. Besides... More

Typical average indian buffet. The buffet is quiet short, not too much food is available but it is tasty and good. On the other hand, the service is poor and is not the most friendly environment. Also dishes and tablecloth can be cleaner. If I go back again is going to be sporadically.

Family owned restaurant. You will probably find the owner sitting around. Ever since the old manager left, the service has gone downhill. The daughter of the owner is managing the restaurant who provides extremely poor service. I hope they will figure out the loss and get the old manager back....or at least train the current management to provide service.

I really wanted to give this restaurant a better review because the food is very good. It would have been better, however, if our plates hadn't been standing under the warming lights for half an hour. This caused the chicken to be very dry. My complaint is about the service. It was an hour after ordering that we finally received... More
