Staff was very friendly and helpful. Food was excellent. It was an experience of a lifetime my first for this type of cuisine. I will visit again the next time I'm in the area.

I first discovered the Jewel of India while working in Beltsville. It quickly became a "go-do" destination for my coworkers and myself. Once I started a job in downtown DC I mourned the convenience of hitting the Jewel whenever I wanted.

We were passing through town and found this place by accident. The food here was very good. The service was really friendly and attentive. I haven't had indian food this good in a long time! I can't believe how many flavors of Naan bread they have. I wanted them all.

We visited Jewel of India for the first time after hearing several good reviews, and were looking forward to eating there. We arrived early, shortly after 5:00 p.m., and were the first people in the restaurant. Unfortunately, we discovered that this is neither an efficient nor a family-friendly restaurant. We waited an hour for our entrees, being served AFTER people... More

I came here with co-workers. Wonderful lunch buffet with a good selection of food. The waiting staff is very friendly and attentive. My only gripe is that they could have a dish or two which is spicier. Since it's a buffet they probably make it milder but if you catch dinner in the evening it may be more authentic. I'll... More

We regularly eat in or get take out from Jewel of India. The food is definitely the best some of the best Indian food in this area. (I think I am qualified to say this, as I have eaten my way through the full gamut of competitors.) The staff are very nice and the food is consistently high quality. If... More

Jewel of India never disappoints. Always terrific and some unique touches. The Calamari appetizer is really nice. For main dishes, fresh spices are evident in curries of all types. I love the snow peas in the Vegetable Jalfrezi, one of my favorite dishes. (They also have a terrific lunch buffet!)
