The food here is so awesome! I went with 10 of my friends yesterday and even though the variety in the buffet was less, the food was really really good. The Butter Chicken and the samosas were excellent. I recommend this for sure

Good food. Plentiful selection. Friendly and helpful staff. No one thing in the buffet was tremendously exciting BUT everything was delicious. Chai was particularly good (comes with the buffet).

Don't let the sketchy bus stop out front scare you. Inside is very welcoming, and I have gone several times for the lunch buffet. While I am not an expert in authentic Indian food, I have tried at least half a dozen different ones in the Seattle area, and this is by far my favorite. Good solid curries, tandoori chicken,...

Although nothing about Jewel of India was great, it wasn't a bad experience dining there. The food is classic Indian fare with nothing really out of the ordinary. The portions seemed a touch on the small side which chipped into the value a little. Other than that, the food was good to the point of going back, but not good... More

Went here with a Groupon deal and the service was excellent as were the food and beverage options. My sister and I LOVED IT! (she's a veggie and found meals no problem - although that's not unusual for Indian restaurants)

What's special about Neelham"s? Well, a few things. They have Southern as well as Northern Indian food. The signature southern dish is the Dosai, a lentil crepe that is filled with various things. There aren't many S. Indian restaurants in Seattle (you need to go to Takoma Park, MD to find half of all of them in the US), so... More
