Went for dinner. There were only two other parties inside, and a few outside when we arrived. After ordering, the wait began. After half an hour, the starters arrived. Halfway through them, two Indian families arrived (6 in one, and about 10 in the other)....More

We at the Jewel Of India have tried to trace the origin adapt and prepare cuisines and regional delicacies that are today a part of every memorable feast. Pulao, naan, grilled kebabs, samoosas and the use of tandoori ovens were typical of the Uzbeck cuisines. The cuisines is said to have found its way to North India with Baber and his contemporaries. Over the year the descendants who grilled in India refined and elaborated upon this cuisine, adding to the species and adapting its local cooking methods to create what we know called Mughlal or Frontier Food. In tracking back the origin, we at JEWEL OF INDIA try to revive and maintain these glorious culinary traditions of old in an ambiance best suited for today’s world. The warmth of the décor, the note of hospitality and the sheer culinary skills, make JEWEL OF INDIA unforgettable experience
