I've reviewed a ton of Indian restaurants lately. The Jewel of India without doubt has the best chicken in their food. I got Chicken Saag and Garlic Naan. The Saag was excellent. I ordered medium spice and found it to be a little on the spicy side, but still excellent. Again, the chicken was so fresh and so well cooked... More

Have been going to this part of Maine for years but never been here before..It was really excellent...service good, food delicious and very pleasant atmosphere..This restaurant was much better than highly rated Indian restaurant we ate at in NYC several weeks ago.I would definitely recommend it as a nice change of pace from typical Maine seafood places.

We went to The Jewel as a group of six. As someone that has enjoyed many an Indian meal be it mainly in the UK or whilst travelling in India I was a bit hesitant about trying an Indian restaurant stateside. My concerns were that it would be a tad bland and lack authenticity. Firstly if you want to know... More

The aroma of delicious spices and a myriad of proteins smacks you in the nose when you open the door, it only gets better. The food is as good or better than the smell when you walk in. I must now succumb to the waiting food coma.

Worked/Traveled in India for 4 months and this is the worst Indian food I've ever had. The Lovely Tikka appetizer was ok but everything else was flavorless with an extra helping of bland. My Tandoori Chicken looked like Sliced Breast from the local supermarket with some homemade Tikki covering (not sauce). My wife's Tikki Paneer came in chucks 2" by... More

Ordered take out - Chicken Tandoori and Chicken Saag. Came with rice. Either chicken was properly stored before cooking or it was not cooked well. Both my wife and I got sick that night. Since the only thing we did different that day was the food from this restaurant, we have to question the food and either the storage or... More
