4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The food here is quite simply outstanding regardless of what you choose from the wide and varied menu. This is Indian food at its best in authentic surroundings. Excellent service from the family owners too. Good wine list and selection of beers .Always busy with a loyal clientele. What not to like !!

I've been going to this place for years. Two things stand out - the food is always good and the service is always very good. Some indian restaurants in Aberdeen lack on the service side but this one is always good. There seems to be a genuine warmth to the welcome. Try the Prawn Puri starter if you haven't before.

Absolutely gorgeous curry last night. The best king prawn dansak I've had in years. Lovely staff will definitely go back again soon.

This restaurant is a favourite place to go for family gatherings for my auntie Jean, her boys and their family. My brother, my nephew and I have also enjoyed the food and ambience at this restaurant. Professional, but relaxed.

This is by far the best Indian in Aberdeen! Great service and amazing food. It is a bit expensive but it's worth every penny!

Took my family here for a dinner after my grad school graduation ceremony. The food was incredible, the service was amazing and the ambiance was perfect! My father said it was one of the best meals of his whole life.

Several people in Aberdeen recommended Jewel in the Crown, and we can see why! This was top notch Indian food - rich with spices and variety - served by a very attentive staff (it's always nice to go to a restaurant where the owners and staff appreciate your business). We visited with another couple and ordered vegetable samosas and pakoras... More

The menu at this Indian restaurant is incredibly diverse. The staff are very attentive and friendly. We were not sure what to order, and the staff surprised us with some really tasty dishes, and were not the most expensive and not the cheapest dishes. They really just wanted to show us their best meals. I loved this place, and is... More
