I usually do not eat restaurant Indian food but this is one of the few places where I can actually say, " Tastes like moms food "

One of our favorite restaurants in the DMV area. Great food, not greasy. Portions size could be more.

Good service, good food. Did not have to wait to get a table, even though the restaurant was full of people. We even had a chance to change table because it was near the door, which a breeze was coming in.

One of the best Indian foods I've been to. The buffet has a great selection and is inexpensive. Good service, cozy, clean, nice atmosphere.

The food is attractively presented and efficiently served at this Silver Spring mainstay. While the spicing is not terribly audacious the entrees do not lack for taste and charm. The dining room is also handsome.

A classic "non-descript shopping center gem"! Some of the best Indian food we've ever had. The best lunch buffet in the region.

Jewel of India is gigantic and is nicely decorated. Great ambience. The service can't be beaten. The food? I found it to be rather lackluster. It has been a while since we've eaten at Jewel of India, but the food wasn't compelling enough for us to return. My husband has had the buffet there on a separate occasion, and liked... More

I live in the area and have dined here once...gotten take-out here at least a dozen times. Everything here is well done, the tandoori chicken is better than an Indian place I've been to (20+ places). The service is prompt and friendly.

I had been to this restaurant, last Friday with my family. The restaurant was packed with guests. We opted for the buffet. The spread was decent as it had two types of rice, baby naan, daal makhni, paneer, veg pakodas, two types of chicken main course curries, goat curry for the main course. I also had chicken achari tikka kebab... More

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.
