Situated just off Bole Road, Jewel of India has a good set up and offer nice Indian dishes. They serve good non-Veg starters which twines well with the local St Georges beer. Recommend its Briani, or the mutton curry. Staff are courteous and there is a small Paan shop at the entrance.

A little difficult to find but once I did I was not disappointed. The food was very good, and reasonably priced. I ended up going 2 different times.

Good restaurant in Addis ababa with variety of Indian dishes, Soups and sweets (Must to Taste).. Overall atmosphere is good, but hygiene is the big issue in all the restaurants in Addis..

The waitress walked off half way through giving the order for no apparent reason. The food was not restaurant quality. The room was more like being in someones house, which had a TV screen showing the football on one side. It is a shame as we love Indian food. One the plus side, we now go to Sangam in Bole... More

Went with two families so got to try multiple dishes. Dined outside so kids had room to play. All dishes were nicely done with flavorful spices when desired. Definitely worth a meal in Addis.
