one of the tastiest indian food that i have tasted, I've been to other indian restaurants but none of them offer as many tasteful dishes. this was my forth time visiting this restaurant and I've tried different curry's every time, they were all scrumptious. also the waiters are very polite and the whole feeling of the place is just right, specially on a friday night. i will deffinatly be stopping over for another meal.

Being an occasional visitor to the Southampton area for work I stumbled across Jewel in the Crown on a visit in April 2013 and had a fantastic meal.
I was again in the area for work in February 2014 and took one of my work colleagues along for a meal to sample the fare.
Once again the food was terrific...as on my previous visit I had possibly the hottest meal on the menu, the Chicken Mirch Mossalah, made with fresh green chillies and cobra chillies - the menu says it is 'very hot' and indeed it is but is just what I enjoy.
It was a shame we were both so stuffed with the food we couldn't finish it all...they offered to pack the leftovers up for us, but given we were staying overnight in a hotel it would have been impractical to do this...nonetheless the food was great and the service was very friendly and welcoming.
I am scheduled to be in Southampton again in April 2014...so will be heading down the Shirley Road once more I am sure, and look forward to it!

We came to this restaurant on Saturday night busy time. We asked for table though It wasn't ready. But we got the table quickly than our expectations. Nice decorated restaurant and beautiful lights. Food was tasty and excellent friendly service. We must come back again.

Picked up a takeaway last night and never again. Bombay potatoes were tasteless, onion bhajis stodgy and as for the Chicken Dhansak. Yuk! Shame as this used to be a good place to eat. Nice decor though if you want some where nice to sit!

Ate in the restaurant just before Christmas and had a lovely meal. Big portions though so don't over order. However, ordered a takeaway this evening which was disappointing. Nearly 2 hours to arrive (40 minutes quoted) and luke warm when it finally turned up and had to be microwaved. Not sure we'll return.
