The restaurant is situated below a fancy hotel. We noticed it seemed empty most of the time. Perhaps people were taking food out we thought. Ordered the Chana masala... It looked like it was made in a large batch the previous day and just thrown onto the plate. Bad presentation and blah taste. Avoid this place unless you have no... More

We went there for dinner. Quite homely atmosphere with the owner mixing with customers for their needs, special requests, feedback on the taste etc. The food was very good, quite similar to what we get in India. Only the staff was not too familiar with the Indian dishes and hence, owner intervention was frequent.

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...

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 very good.
