First time to this restuarant for around 5 years. The experience was excellent with a good choice of dishes and fantastic service. I did think the menus we had could be a bit newer - seemed old and sticky which didn't go with the rest of the restuarant but minor point which was forgotten about when the food arrived/

The 'Crown' no doubt refers to the restaurant's Crown Street location and as such it is not on a main Aberdeen thoroughfare which would provide passing customers. The proprietors have fixed that by providing such outstanding food and service that 'word of mouth' does the job. We visited the Jewel for a family dinner early one evening recently and were...

Have been several times as the food is always good. The latest visit was no exception with crispy bhajis and pakora followed by excellent main courses and some of the best naan bread we've tasted. Only downside is the slow service, probably due to the restaurant being constantly busy.

I love a Indian feast and we were not let down at the Jewel In the Crown - attentive service from the offset by friendly waiters. The menu had a large chose catering to most needs - even the fussiest could be accommodated here! The portions were excellent sized, fresh and colorful - i cannot wait to return!

Recently visited the Jewel in the Crown, and I returned within a few days just to sample it's delicious spicy dishes again. Absolutely fantastic service, and the curry is out of this world. Goes down all too perfectly with an ice cold pint of Cobra.

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.
