I have been going to the Jewel in the Crown for many years now and I have never once had a bad experience. It is always first class food and first class service. A family run restaurant that is always very busy so you should always try and book ahead if you can.

The service was very good and the food was quite possibly the best Indian food I have ever had. I am led to believe it gets very busy, so probably better to book as it is quite small.

A great family run traditional Indian restaurant located in a side street close to the city centre .Parking nearby .Wide varied menu and well stocked bar. Great service from long serving staff. Excellent toilets. Prices have increased recently but a complete class act.
