Was here for Dinner and ordered Veg Spring Rolls, Veg Biriyani, Naan and Navaratna Korma. The Spring rolls were a nice fusion of Indian and Oriental tastes. The Veg Biriyani with its Yogurt Raitha was very nice - the best in a long time in the US. The Naan was very soft and tasty and the Navaratna korma was specially... More

The Korean spot we'd intended to try turned out to be closed on Sundays. Thank goodness...because Jewel of India turned out to be the best possible place: sensational food (we got the Samosa Chat and Papad (?)

My husband and I enjoyed the somewhat familiar feel of the restaurant. The lighting is modest and the staff aren't pushy. You can sit and have a leisurely conversation. The garlic naan and Tandoori chicken were my favorite.

Amazing Indian food in your own backyard...take advantage of it. The special where you get to pick 3 vegatable curries is the way to go.

Always try and visit this superior Indian restaurant located just outside the beltway on new Hampshire avenue. Lunch buffet is best around and is a super value.
