The food was really nice but the evening was spoilt by the fact we had to wait a while for food but even more frustrating was that we had to ask three times for drinks. Even the manager asked if everything was ok we mentioned the drinks but still had to wait. Apart from this we had a nice evening and lovely food

Everytime i visit this restaurant i am given superb service, excellent food and a friendly atmosphere. What more could anyone ask for. Jewel has recently updated his menu and the new dishes are worth trying. For those who like the heat try Jal Chicken for a starter.
Visit Jewels and you will not be disappointed.

we have been coming to this restaurant for twelve years now,as have all my family.
As soon as you walk in you are made to feel welcome, it is of a contemporary style and is off a very high standard.The booths especially appeal to us as they give you that extra privacy.
The staff are also very polite and work very hard to ensure our evening is highly enjoyable ,the manager always comes over and has a little chat to see how we are and if all is ok with the meal.
My mum and dad have retired to spain and when they come over they always ask if we can visit the restaurant,they love it so much.The food is excellent,always fresh ingredients used, we love the lamb madras and the naan breads are the best! I can honestly say that in the twelve years we have visited we have never had a bad meal,we shall be booking again very soon.
Just to add that we get the same service when we collect our take away.

Decided to try Jewels as it is so highly rated, and close to home. Bought a takeaway for myself and my husband.
I was just seriously disappointed. Service was average at best, if not a little standoffish. But the food is just seriously blah. Bhuna really didnt taste of anything and was exactly the same colour and flavour as the bombay potatoes. Cheese naan had barely any cheese and all of the chicken was very dry.
Anyone who thinks this is a good restaurant, you need to try some other places. Southampton has MUCH better Indian food than this on offer
