This was my first time having Indian food at the restaurant. I wanted something spicy so I ordered the Chicken Jelfrezi. I asked for the dish to be medium spicy. My meal came out perfect! Not too spicy and not too mild. It was very fresh. I'll definitely be returning especially since it's not too far from where I live.

Absolutely phenomenal Indian food in a non-descript strip mall right off the Beltway. I would stack Jewel of India up against any of the better known, fancier Indian joints in the District--and I think they'd win! Came in for a late dinner with my husband and appreciated the quality food and pleasant service. My palak paneer was perfect and my... More

We went with friends and did a mix of favorite appetizers, varied breads and some entrees that were new to us. Our favorite appetizer, hands-down, is the samosa chat, a totally reimagined version of samosa. Our entrees included the Rogan Josh (tasty sauce!), the Gobi Mutter (a spectacular cauliflower dish) and the Bhindi do Piaza (sensational okra dish). The salmon... More

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.
