Really nice food...the place could do with an update - looking a little sad. But regardless we are always happy with food and service when we come here :)

We had dinner here recently and l would have to say it was average at best. I ordered the butter chicken as l do at every Indian place we eat at and it was very so so. Chicken was tender but the sauce was runny and a bit tasteless. Cheese naan was nice as was the rice, partner had a mango lasse that had to be re made as the first one had an "odd" taste. Service was okay as was the price, good location too.

Heading down south it can be a challenge to find really tasty food and friendly service at an inexpensive price. Jewell of Busselton (as it is now known) fits this bill. We went their as a group of four adults and two teenagers and found plenty of choices to satisfy all tastes including one of us being a vegetarian. The only criticism was that they didn't clear the plates away quickly, but we weren't in a hurry and there is a sign on the front window advertising for more staff! We certainly didn't leave feeling hungry. We ended up down the road at the excellent Italian Ice Cream place for dessert. The price? Only about $20 per head including corkage.

Arrived after waiting 10 minutes to finally be greeted and sat given dirty glasses and a dirty jug of water. Followed by dirty plates. Ordered butter chicken and chicken Jalfrezie both extremely bland and off tasting. The rice was dry and undercooked obviously a few days old the bahjis were cooked then re cooked to reheat. Shop seemed a little dirty and no atmosphere. Left feeling dissapointed and a little unwell from the poor food. Although they were more then happy to take our 65 bucks with a smile.

Went during early evening hours-the biriyani rice and the chicken did not taste good. I have been eating and tasting Indian food for the past 35 years and I know much about Indian food. The biriyani rice was at least 2 days (most probably 3 days old) and the same goes with the chicken too. Most probably the food was stored in the fridge (for at least 2 or 3 days)and reheated before serving. Of course businesses are run to make money-but not at the cost of unsuspecting customers. The good review by others in this section might be due to the following reasons:
Lack of knowledge about good, authentic Indian food and the inability to differentiate between good food and not so good food. Or I could have been simply unlucky when I visited so I got stale food!
Good points: Good customer service and good location
Bad points : Stale food
