Nearest Indian to where I was staying and it did not disappoint. Never been there before but will certainly go back. First let me say when I arrived at 6-30 I got the last table available so I suspected it must be god to be this well supported so early in the evening on a Thursday night. All the food... More

Another superb curry here just after the new year. Asked for a lamb chicken and king prawn curry that wasn't on the menu no problem to the chef's at jewel in the crown and it was superb. Place never fails to live up to expections best curry house in Aberdeen by a country mile. Can't wait to return. 10/10

Food absolutely excellent and varied and service could not be more pleasant. Went during a quiet afternoon time where it felt as if you were at home - without having to do the cooking.

This curry house is an old favourite for us and many others in the local area. Our excuse for curry indulgence on this particular Friday night? My boyfriend would be half way around the world on business the very next day. We received exceptional service from the moment we stepped in the traditional tavern. No sooner had we arrived than...

Great welcome from this family run Indian restaurant. A traditional restaurant full of buzz and atmosphere. The menu was great, food fabulous (never seen such huge naan bread) and staff were amazing. So humble and polite. I want to go back again!

Without a doubt the best Indian in Aberdeen. We are always welcomed by staff members, even if you haven't booked in busy times they'll find a spot for you. I tried a new dish this month as it was as tasty as ever, keep up the good work.

I have been eating in jewel in the crowd for years, and it is by far the best Indian in Aberdeen and I don't think I've been to a better Indian in Scotland. Highly recommend the Murg Exotica, and the naan breads are also incredible.

We had a confirmed booking only to find a queue of approx 5 groups of people waiting for their similar bookings - some had waited more than an hour to even get seated. One had been told to go away and come back after an hour - they did, but still didn't get a table. Customers wait within the entrance... More
