All dishes are full of flavour and packed full of meet. Wish there was one as good as this in Basingstoke. Must go to place. Really worth a visit

We dropped in for an impromptu curry whilst travelling north. Whilst the exterior was exactly encouraging the interior was smart and modern. The manager welcomed us and showed us to a table.

There was plenty of choice and although the vegetarian options were limited the staff said the chef could make any of the other dishes vegetarian if I preferred. I decided to stick with the vegetarian curry and it was lovely. My... More

The Jewel was empty at 9.30 but that did not stop them from being a great takeaway. Portion size meant a delicious cold meal for the next day too.

As you can see from the title, the exerior fails to do justice to the spacious, contemporary interior. The good is too notch. You are actively encouraged to discuss and modify the dishes to your own taste/requirements. A splendid range of Indian dishes - the restaurant's name is about right.
