“Fantastic Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

This place is AWESOME. Delicious and very well treated by all the staff who were very accommodating! The naans are so so delicious and also a great size, we were going to order two but were persuaded to get just one and that was plenty! Yes it is a little pricey but definitely worth it! Go here if you really love indian food. Yum yum yum, thanks Jewel in the Crown.

“Fabulous once again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

This is the 5th time we have dined here and once again the experience was first class. Warm welcome, fantastic food and excellent service from the waiters. Best Indian restaurant in Aberdeen by a mile.

Thanks again

“Full package”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

Pleasant, clean surroundings with a good atmosphere. Waiters were all very nice and attentive. Meal was very good. I am vegetarian and there was plenty to choose from on the menu. I stuck to my usual unadventurous Vegetable Korma and boiled rice it was lovely. I also had Peshwari naan (fruit) which tasted so nice. I was with 3 others and they also thoroughly enjoyed their meals and the whole experience. The 4 of us also had 2 drinks each. We each paid £25 which also included a tip for the great service. Overall we had a lovely time and agreed we got good value for our money and we will go there again -very soon.

“Disappointing & over-priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

Visited the Jewel in the Crown after recommendations from friends. The good points were:- good service, naan bread was nice, tasty starter king prawn puri... Bad points were: sickly sweet king prawn tikka masala, awful tasting chicken with spinach dish, dried out lamb kebab & sickly sweet chicken tikka masala. £155 for 5 people 3 of whom had tap water.... Sorry but won't be visiting again. Shish Tandoori in Bridge of Don is much better.
