“Excellent Restaurant! But Pricey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

It is a very good restaurant, with excellent indian food. We were a party of 8 and were welcomed by the owner, who made us very good recommendations. If you are truly vegetarian, he can also serve you typical veggy indian food with good taste. The only BUT, the price: we paid each USD 70. So don't be surprised with the bill.

“Indian food in Santiago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Have visited this place more than a dozen times. The ambience is tremendous. The service impeccable with the owner Mr. Arora personally being present on most occasion. He also helps you in ordering to suit your palate. The selection is quite wide, and if you can speak to Mr. Arora, he can rustle up something exotic as well. Food is way above average. A bit pricey. Location is good. Need to improve on their cocktails.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Jewel of India became my favourite Indian restaurant in Chile.
The place has very nice decoration and when is added to the music you can feel yourself in another place of the world.
Rakesh, the owner, is always present and making sure you are feeling comfortable and enjoying the food, if you have any doubts about what to eat, he would be your perfect guide in finding your best match on the menu.
It also has a parking place which is very handy given the location, but you can also park in the small streets that are close by.
Regarding the food, I have to say it was delicious and the spices were perfectly balanced. If you like spicy food, I wouldn't suggest anything stronger than level I spice if you don't want to sweat.

“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

It is a great place! Great food and an outstanding service.

While the place is not cheap, it is value for money.

Their wine offering was superb!
