Woo doggy, the “medium” spicyness was Indian spicy, not regular joe spicy. We had the butter chicken mild and it was a little spicy, just right if you’re a wimp like me. We also had the Kashmiri lamb medium - it was almost too spicy....More

I was looking for an authentic Indian restaurant when I was in Seattle this week and stumbled across Jewel of India. I wasn't let down by this experience. I recommend the keema naan, lamb butter masala and Taaj beer.

This family knows how to cook! The eggplant baked in a Tandoori oven was particularly delicious. Rogan josh can be made with your choice of meat. Really good food!
