We have been to Jewel of India for lunch several times and it has been consistently terrific. Some of the buffet items change so there is always something new/different to try. Service is always prompt and with a smile. Highly recommend this restaurant. Pleasing atmosphere.

Nice staff, can get busy because it is so popular, but the food is great. My wife and love their malai kofta, which is a very decadent dish. If you like Indian and food and are in the area definitely try it out.

The place was recommended to us by a friend. We went here for lunch buffet and were surprised to see the options in the buffet. It had chaats and number of selections. The food was warm and tasty. Served nice crisp and fresh naan. Even the price was reasonable for a weekend buffet. Overall a pretty good restaurant.

Jewel of India is a wonderful restaurant. We usually come here for the buffet lunch and it is always a pleasure. The line usually moves quickly and the choices are varied -- rarely do we see the same things and it is all delicious. I've been told ordering off the menu at dinner is even better than the lunch buffet,... More

Highly recommend this restaurant for its varied and delicious food. We have the naan with every meal. It's quite popular with everyone who knows about it. It is a welcome place amongst the predictable Tex-Mex and Chinese places.
