Found ourselves on the strip for the evening and at first while looking what was on offer for dinner we weren't sure on Jewel Of India from the outside and also not read any TA reviews so unsure we decided to give it a go as not had an Indian for some time. First impressions of the restaurant were good,... More

Went with my partner for a meal. We ordered mixed grill, pills rice and curry with naan bread. We were brought vindaloo. Waiter had to take it back and left us just eating the rice on its own. Brought the correct sauce but the meal was ruined. Please dear restaurant owner if you advertised mixed grill on your menu find... More

Highly recommend this restaurant at the bottom end of the Senagambia strip. The food was high quality, authentic Indian food served by very friendly staff. There is a live singer Thur-Sunday nights singing from a backing track and whilst it might not be to everyone's taste it was very entertaining.

Unfortunately we were quite disappointed after being recommended that this Indian was one of the best and better than back home. I chose the Goan fish curry and the fish was very dry, it must have been cooked separately then added into the sauce. My husband had a madras and he said it was just a thick gravy sauce, there...

Food was lovely, its location on the strip was ideal and the service was quick. The owner was very friendly and came to speak us at our table. The karaoke singer wasn't the best, but created a fab atmosphere. He brought the karoke song choice book over so we could have a go. If we were there longer, we probably... More

We returned to this restaurant and found it was under new management. I was a little bothered because we had always had a great meal here previously. No need to have worried, because if anything, it has improved. So much so we went ther 4 or 5 times within our fortnight. Their Tandoori Chicken is a joy to behold. A... More
