Good food, odd atmosphere.

Good Indian food is hard to come by, and this place offers good traditional Indian restaurant food. The atmosphere feels a little bland, but that doesn't change how the food tastes, which is yummy!

Great Indian food served just the way you want it. Small wine list but some great wines especially the NZ Savignon Blanc. Curries were prepared to your own pallet and were tasty indeed.

With not many Indian places to go nearby this was the only choice. Shrimp biriyani was the ready-mix kind with chunks of ginger in it that spoils the taste. When ground to a paste you don't have to bite into them. As one of the other reviews calls it- Americanized Indian fanfare. Dal makhani was so-so. Somehow the place has... More

The only Indian food restaurant in the vicinity of Dartmouth College. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. Would highly recommend it.

I love Jewel! I have been coming here for years, and will keep coming back! The food is delicious! I recommend the Masala - shrimp or chicken!

Our daughter and family lives about 20 miles away in Lyme NH, so we were just here while visiting. This place is off the main street so parking is not as bad as it is other places in Hanover. It's been here a long time. An Indian restaurant with a wide range of Northern dishes, breads, desserts and drinks. Everyone... More

We've been going to Jewel of India for about 18 years and I'd say we love it more now than ever! We go to the Sunday lunch buffet almost every week and occasionally get takeout. We like to try other Indian restaurants when we travel, but Jewels is the best we've found. We're vegetarians, so I can't comment on the... More

Delicious food - cooked to order - mild, medium, or spicy. I love their coconut soup! The place to go for unique food at a reasonable price.

Chicken and fish tandoori genuine Punjabi and tasty. Rotis and other breads genuine items too. A full menu that is north Indian Delhi typical. Saag paneer (spinach & cheese) has become a stand-by, usually with raita and rotis. Some dishes really excellent, some average but overall very much worth eating here on whim or plan because after a few visits... More

We ate here super-bowl night. Needless to say the place was not busy. I have had a lot of Indian Food and this was very good. A great variety, an excellent soup. The service is a little spotty - I think some of the staff not all that comfortable in English. It was great value and I would definitely go... More
