Good food take your own wine

The food was good. Traditional tasty curry. The wine however was way over priced ridiculously so. On our second visit we took our own and was charged R50 corkage. As a local this is ridiculous. It's actually greedy. This is a bog standard curry restaurant charging top notch prices. Service... read more

Had the best curry so far in cape town. loved the starters and curries. Wine list rather dismal, so will bring my own next time, which is tonight. and really looking forward to delicious curry. Worth visiting. The staff so friendly and accommodating.

We visited Jewel of India a few times while staying in the Green Point neighborhood. Food was very good and service was excellent. We really appreciated the service as it seemed every other place we went to the service was slow. The Dal and the paneers were great. As the weather is so lovely in Cape Town in December, wish...

We opted to get some takeaway curries from this establishment as it was a bit wet and cold in Cape Town. We had previously ordered curries a few months ago from the Jewel of India but were severely disappointed, however we decided to give them another shot as we were driving past and hungry. We basically ordered what we would... More

I went alone to eat a dinner, and randomly chose the Jewel of India on the street. How surprised I was, with a very attentious waiter, and a very tasty food!

After almost 3 weeks from home, we were craving for good Indian food. We had ordered vegetarian dishes, Tadka Dal, Hyadrabadi Vegetables, Roti, rice and Cucumber Raita. All the dishes were delicious and serving size was good. It was a good experience.
