    The restaurant is situated in Manuka within the shopping area and is very easy to find with plenty of parking nearby. The service was excellent, choice of dishes extensive, the food was amazing and reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

    I really wouldn’t go again. The food was ok. The ambience was fine. But the service (in an almost empty restaurant) was nonexistent or very slow at best. Staff didn’t come near us and we had to call out to order. Empty entree plates left on table for ages before mains eventually served, and despite trying to order dessert we gave up and called it a night. No attempt to provide bill to table so we got up and paid at door and left. It’s a pity. Good be decent if they bothered.

    The Jewel is always good. Have eaten there on a number of occasions, mainly lunch, and the food and service are always excellent. Great for a catch-up in a quiet setting.

    We enjoyed everything about this restaurant. The food is absolutely delicious. We loved the eggplant dish especially. We’ll definitely be back next time we’re in Canberra.

    We had vegetarian dishes with some rice and naan. Food was beautiful but service was very ordinary. There was only one other group there so expected better service really.

    We returned to this restaurant after having had a great experience 5 years ago. We were not disappointed! We chose the Jewel banquet, which was delicious. The staff were very helpful and attentive. We will definitely return when we next visit Canberra.

    A wonderful Indian restaurant. The food was superb and the staff were welcoming and proficient. One of the best Indian meals we've had, and highly recommend to anyone who enjoys good cuisine.

    The food at the Jewel is always good. The best curries you will have. The service tonight was a bit slow but that’s OK - we were not in a particular hurry. I always have a problem, however when takeaways take over the business of serving the customers in the restaurant and it happens so often. The Jewel will always be our GOTO Indian restaurant.

    This used to be our favourite Indian but the standards have dropped. The food was average and poorly presented as were the drinks. The waitress was rude and incompetent. Disappointing.

    I had been here before with friends which is why I came back with my family, this time it was extremely disappointing. We were a family of 4, had to wait for our order to be taken, then wait a very long time for just one starter and then wait even longer for our mains. The staff seemed too busy running after their white guests ( who came after us) that they couldn't be bothered with us Asians. When the food finally arrived they had not even bothered to wipe the under-surface of the serving dishes, which left black stains all over the white tablecloth. I looked around at other tables but no one else seemed to share this issue (maybe they couldn't be too fussed with Asians customers)!!! The chicken pieces in the butter chicken were huge, hadn't even been chopped up. All the curry portions were very small, butter chicken, beef vindaloo and lamb rogan all tasted very mediocre and below par. Overall pretty disappointing, Next time, we might go to an Indian restaurant where Asians are not made to feel second rate !!!!

    The food was excellent. I had the Prawn Vindaloo which was wonderfully flavourful and spicy and my partner had the Lamb Roganjosh which was perfectly seasoned. The portions were generous and it was overall a great meal.
