Loved it! – Jewel of India was excellent. The food was delicious, the atmosphere very nice and the convenient midtown location made it a perfect venue for a large group after our day at the theatre.
will Never go back – My girlfriend and I return for buffet around 2pm today excitedly. The 2nd-floor waitress refused to sit us at a wider, comfortable table. I asked now is not peak time and less than one-third tables were seated. She made an quick story that there would be 50 people coming sitting there soon. The buffet was closed less than 30 minutes while we ate. I couldn't understand why she needed to lie for her laziness of cleaning table after clients left.
Worst Indian restaurant in NYC – This is the epitome of an Indian restaurant that has no clue of what service is all about nor do they now what good food is all about, and on top of that they
have the sheer arrogance of tacking on a 18% TIP (yes TIP !) on the check when they do not know what the word TIP stands for ! Maybe someone ought to educate the so called "Manager" (more like the "Mis-Manager") by the name of Anand Gadkar, who thinks he is running a Shiv Sena dhaba in Grant Road (instead of a fine cuisine place in NYC) what the word TIP stands for i.e TIP = To Insure Prompt service . !! Jeez how do these people get to run restaurants in a city like NYC..(my hometown)..is beyond me...
I was there with my wife and my 12 yr old and my 3 yr old and when I challenged the Mandaory 18% TIP the arrogant and profane Gadkar tacked on - he had the gall to call me a "bustard" (his pronunciation :) )in front of my family.
Jeez. These low life Indian restaurateurs should be made extinct soon. Welcome to America..Not !!
Worst Service – I went to this place on Wednesday November 15 at 3.30 PM. I heard about this restaurant and always wanted to go there. I did not know that the restaurant was closed by 3 PM. I entered with my colleagues. There is this guy sitting in the restaurant and I asked him if the restaurant is still open or not as I did not see any one. He was so rude to me and without even getting up from the chair he replied that ?No food it is closed , go ,? and all the time he was plucking his teeth and was sitting on a chair keeping his leg on the table
May be the food is good inside, may be the interiors are good but in a service oriented industry like that of restaurants if the service is not good and if people are so dumb and rude not to even reply to your customers properly then take my word this restaurant is not worth even considering to go. All I can say was I was so embarrassed by the way I was treated.
Buffet is a Great Deal – The standouts here were the wonderful service and the great deal on the lunch buffet. The food was good (especially for the price) - not the best Indian food I've ever had, but quite tasty. They do tone the spice down a lot to accomodate the general masses. The only downside was that the naan was a bit dried out (but I suppose that's the danger of serving it in a buffet line). I imagine this is a great place to grab a business lunch.
brunch buffet special is fine – my friends and i decided to stop in for brunch. the sign says that they are open at noon. we were there at 11:45 and they were kind enough to let us in and sit in the bar area while they set up the food. however, the food was not ready until 12:15. not a big deal but if you are hungry or need to be somewhere immediately after lunch, you need to take that into consideration. the food was ok. the spinach was very good. the tandoori chicken was a tad bit dry though. the other chicken dish (forget the name) on a red sauce was very tasty. the naan bread was a bit bland. the service is very friendly and attentive. if i am in the area and want cheap, fast indian food, i would probably go back.
Great buffet food – If you want something fast for lunch and you like Indian food that't the place. Great value and the food is very good traditional Indian style.
Jewel was a great lunch spot – Went to Jewel with a group from work and we were very pleased. Friendly & attentive service, hot, fresh food and everyone in the restaurant was courteous. We got a bunch of different dishes(chicken, lamb & veggie) and shared them....each one was top notch. We'll be back
dont belive the hype – well i heard a lot about jewel of india and decided to try it out. I went there on a sat it wasnt that busy, but it still took someone 5 mins just to come ask how many. and then still had to wait about 10 mins. So i sat down with my GF at the time and a waiter comes and we order starters before he leaves his shoulder knocks over my drink on my pants isnt that just great. well then starters came a bit late and not that warm. i give the starters a C+. later we had maincourse most of it was good some was really bad. Service was very bad. My overall grade is D+
not a good time – No service at all......... foood was cold........ and waiter were chit chatting
