My new favourite Indian restaurant close to home and convenient but delicious. Lamb and chicken was divine and excellent spice on both mild and hot meals. Not to mention the Naan bread 🍞 wow!

These guys make the most flavourful amazing indian food. The naan bread, the Rogan Josh, the Butter chicken, the Korma.... its all just too amazing. Great service and such nice people. Few people know about this hidden gem but they have turned me into a lover of Indian Food!

I love eating here. Jewel of India has never failed to impress me since I first ate at the beachfront venue ages ago. Their grasp of amazing vegetarian fare is great. From starters to mains and their desserts, its one of a kind!

Conveniently situated in Upmarket Umhlanga . Good food well prepared . Enjoyed the Veg Manchurian and Paneer Tikka Masala amongst other deliciously prepared dishes. Affordable prices. Excellent staff mannerisms. Will eat here again ! And they have a take away as well ! :-)
