The Jewel of India closed its doors early in 2016. It had genuine good Indian food and was situated just of beach road close to the fountain circle. Currently occupied by a general merchant.

In winter I always crave a good, hearty curry that'll burn with taste. Jewel of India caters exactly for people like me. We have paid a visit there three times since discovering the restaurant and the food is always unbelievably tasty. Besides wonderful aromas of...More

This little restaurant is really a small little gem hidden away. It was by chance that I found them on the internet and I must admit it was the best new found restaurant in our area. The food was authentic Indian cuisine and well worth...More
