    Don't come here for a romantic night out. Lighting and ambience dreary and the music was initially some kind of Indian techno and then later gave way to silence which was disappointing as the dance music was partially drowning out the wailing baby. To call the service indifferent would be to slander indifference. The food was nice enough, standard Indian fare, nothing startling. How this place is #17 of restaurants in Canberra on TripAdvisor is a mystery for the ages. Felt deceived. On the good side the wine list is cheap and the restaurant is not expensive. We may have just struck them on a bad night.

    A/C wasn't working. The Onion Baji had a filler and were not hot. The lamb kababs were not hot and I'm sure were not cooked in the tandoor. We are visitors to Canberra and have dined at The Jewel previously. So disappointing. Will not go back.

    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.
