“For authentic Indian curry visit Jewel of India”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

The Jewel of india is situated in snel parade along Durban North Beeach at the Elangeni Hotel. It has a variety of vegetaian and nonvegetarian items on the menu. All meals are freshly prepared with aromatic indian spices. Meals could be prepared at varying degrees of strength in terms of spice. Price a little expensive. Alcohol is also available. Atmosphere is good with light indian classical music on the background. Service is good.

“Delicious curries!”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

The service was a bit erratic but the food was delicious. If not staying at this hotel, take advantage of an opportunity to walk the beach (during daylight) before dinner. Worth a visit for sure.

“Certainly lives up to its name”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

The restaurant is situated in Elangeni hotel and caters equally for tourists and local. It is large and the ambience is average.

The food and service is excellent. You also have an excellent array of choices when it comes to wines, cocktails and drinks.

A tad expensive for a Durban restaurant -- but remember it is worth every penny

“Good Indian food”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Food is good, but the staff need to be more hospitable. Tandoori Chicken is a must try. But, I would like to see more smiles there .
