My wife and I were both left feeling disappointed after our visit to The Jewel in the Crown. We had one poppadom each, shared a fish starter which we couldn't eat as it didn't taste cooked and a main (which was fine) with one rice,...More

This is a really fantastic Indian restaurant and worth visiting. All of the items on the menu are delicious, the flavours are well balanced and food is nicely presented. Service is friendly and attentive and the decor is pleasant
