Situated just off Bole Road, Jewel of India has a good set up and offer nice Indian dishes. They serve good non-Veg starters which twines well with the local St Georges beer. Recommend its Briani, or the mutton curry. Staff are courteous and there is...More

A little difficult to find but once I did I was not disappointed. The food was very good, and reasonably priced. I ended up going 2 different times.
