Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Excellent restaurant, comprehensive menu with lots of choice. Friendly staff, attentive but not pushy, service top class, it’s the small things that make the difference between a good restaurant and an excellent one, plates hot and handled well, hygienic handling of the cutlery!! Ok that’s...enough praise for the plates ! Now the dishes that came to the table, crispy popadoms not a hint of greasy or oily ! Chutneys etc lovely, 3 main courses all superb. Without being disrespectful finding an urban small restaurant kind of tucked away in a parade of shops wouldn’t be my first port of call …… but came highly recommended and turned out to be fantastic! Already a pretty busy establishment I understand so booking essential. Highly recommended!More

Excellent. Staff friendly. Tasty food. Of real note was the redecoration, place looks just amazing. I went with my partner and we had a relaxed and thoroughly enjoyable meal. Definitely plan to go back.

Food and service was great - FAR better than many places around here. The server did try to clear the table just as I put the last spoonful in my mouth but was apologetic about this... Cannot give five stars because the menu isn't child-friendly...(could have nuggets and chips easily) and they didn't have high chairs for babies. Very small criticism! I recommend this place. Thank you again.More

Fantastic and unusual curry. Chef’s special I think. Bahar, mint & mango. Huge portion of melt in the mouth lamb. Lovely staff and comfortable restaurant. In my top 5.

Hadn’t visited for a while but will be back sooner. An evening with 3 friends, plenty of poppadoms with the chutneys etc. 4 different curries ordered, all tasty and nicely presented. Naans and bhajis also very good. Restaurant was busy at 7 on a Thursday...but plenty of staff around and always attentive. Would recommend.More

Not been here for many years and I won't be returning anytime soon. On arrival it took 15 mins to get a menu, people who arrived after us were already eating starters. We chose the buffet , but nobody told us about this, just that...we had seen it online. The mixed starter was horrible, Chicken Chat, I think they spelt that wrong. It was a mush of chicken, the tikka was stale, the poppadoms very frozen and the veg dish was a mess. The onion bhaji was ok.They had forgotten about the poppadoms, we had to ask for them. The curry then came and they were just very poor quality, the chicken was low standard, the beef was so chewy. At least 5 waiters and all but one were clueless. Asda curry is better and that's saying something. Dont do it go elsewhereMore

I’ve been visiting Jewels for years now and love the quality of food and friendliness of staff. I recently had my 60 th birthday party there and the staff looked after us very well, and I was very grateful for the complimentary bottle of Champagne...from Jewel himself. I go there at least once a week and I can’t see that changing any time soon.More

I love curry and make my own from scratch . Our fav curry house is in netley .came here with friend tonight as they booked. Too busy and packed in . You are constantly being asked if you want more drinks ,as I’m guessing this...is where they make their money , yet water is not offered to be replenished . My curry was tasteless was described as medium .no flavour at all . Chicken was like sliced chicken from frozen Iceland . Waited 15 mins for bill before we asked again . Yet when we were eaten they were still clearing out plates away while me & my husbands were still eaten , our friends had finished We did get a free baileys. No one came over to take our money so we walked off to pay on our way out . Won’t visit again . Didn’t enjoy the experience . This was my third time here . But was about 4 years since last timeMore

We visited Jewels yesterday Sunday 23 Jan 2022, the first visit for a long time because of Covid. I had the Lank Piaza, it was by far the best I have ever had; normally I only eat about half the meal but I nearly finished...this dish. As usual the waiters were very polite, friendly, efficient and everything was very clean. Also the background music is always very good. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant. Sandy GMore
