    The owner and his staff are great people, smiling and most welcoming. But the food is what brings us here! The palak paneer, butter chicken and goat curry are a must! Mop it all up with naan bread!! Yum!

    A really delightful Indian restaurant. Staff were super helpful and pleasant and it was remarkably quiet in the Manuka Arcade for a Friday evening. Food quality and choice were excellent. BYO and menu prices make it very affordable. We would highly recommend.

    Disappointing service given we were on a tight schedule of 90 minutes total for the sitting. After 45 minutes I had to ask where the food was and we had been offered nothing else in the meantime. Food was ok when it finally came but the waitresses were very young and inexperienced with no training in customer service. They did try their best to apologise for the delay and assure us that we would not be asked to leave before we had time to eat.

    The food was absolutely delicious, we had the Jewel feast and loved every bite! The service was great except for the guy on the desk who ignored me as I walked in ahead of my husband and when he walked in good evening sir blah blah blah, he did not even acknowledge me even though the booking was in my name. Didn’t deter me from thoroughly enjoying my experience. Def would go back.

    The food here is always of great quality. The fried spinach fritters are to die for. Tonight we had the banquet for two and it was HUGE. We’re particularly loved the mixed entree platter. Never any complaints from us. Service is always great but there weren’t many customers due to the Covid restrictions so it was even better tonight than usual. Five stars from us.

    The food really was fantastic. Which is lucky because it took a long time to arrive. And the service was inattentive. They seemed to prioritise home delivery services over diners.

    Entree- the kebab tasted a bit rubbery. The spices were great and presentation was good. The salad/lettuce looked tired. Main- we ordered two curries chicken and beef both were really YUM and gravy did the magic. Tandoori roti were soft and hot. Drinks- we had two drinks each. I ordered beer first and then ordered 2nd time but never got offered a new glass/fresh glass. Then we ordered lassi and both times it was delicious.

    Clearly under the pump from a Canberra Friday night takeaway crowd more focused on Pies v Giants than having an Indian fine dining experience, the Jewel still delivers. Terrific, finely honed flavours from their biryani and vegetarian selections means we will be back for more.

    Was a lovely meal and pleasent service in the middle of a very difficult time period of early post covid.

    We arrived at our booked time. Jewel Of India was about two thirds full. We saw that only one table had food. Our orders were taken reasonably quickly. 30 minutes later still no food had come out of the kitchen for any of the tables. Some people got up and left. A bit later entrees started to come out in a flurry. The tables that had been there before us rightly got theirs first and we received ours a bit later. We saw that some tables had received incorrect orders and their entrees had to be taken away. We had ordered samosas. They were small with not much filling. There was then a longish wait for mains. During this period while waiting for our mains there was a continual stream of what we think were drivers collecting take-away orders and many other people came in to collect their take-away orders. Eventually the mains arrived - missing our naan bread which we were told would follow. Halfway through the meal still no naan so had to ask for it, and clearly it had been forgotten. The naan arrived shortly before we were finished. The manager and waiter apologised for the long wait for food, but it was all a bit of a disaster. While the mains were good we probably won't go back again. The problem appeared to be that the kitchen had been overwhelmed by take-away orders and could not service both those and the diners in the restaurant. Not sure how they will fix the problem as there has been a big shift to take-away due to the Covid shutdowns.

    Excellent quality and freshness of food. Every dish has its unique flavour from different spices. Was pleasantly surprised when we ordered a glass of house wine and they serve us a bottle, free flow.
