Editorial review from GrubHub 7/7/2013

The food may be quite tasty for folks eating at the restaurant but I was a bit disappointed with my takeout as the majority of items were mediocre warm by the time we sat down to eat at home. The order of butter Naan had only one piece which was burnt and greasy. The rice pudding was the biggest disappointment though, we usually love this stuff so I ordered a lot of it, anticipating tasty leftovers for breakfast....not so. It was bland, runny and watery. Overall, unhappy experience, won't be returning for takeout. :( more

Perfect date night 2/25/2011

First of all, don't go for lunch. Not that the lunch buffet is bad, necessarily, but it's not anywhere near as good as dinner. Save your lunch money and go 5 doors down to Luceros for the best chicken and potato burrito EVER. Anyway, I digress... First of all you MUST dine-in. Takeout just isn't the same without the atmosphere. The dining room is decorated with elaborately cut mahogany panels, deep jewel tone colors, gold accents here and there, and interesting murals depicting Indian life. Dinner at Jewel is just beyond comparison...as soon as you sit down you are warmly welcomed with crispy, still-warm papadums and a delicious assortment of chutneys. This, alone, is enough for a light lunch for me! Try every single one of the chutneys, they are all fabulous! Be sure to order a basket of garlic naan while you peruse the lengthy menu. Don;t hesitate to ask questions. The servers are very knowlegable and while a few of them are difficult to understand they are all incredibly warm and friendly. You really cannot go wrong with anything you order, but I especially recommend the chicken biryani, (a seasoned rice dish made with coconut, raisins, and saffron) or the mixed Tandoori. Actually anything from the tandoor is succulent...perfectly spiced and marinated to attain that trademark magenta color! But the mixed grill is the best way to try everything including Mahi, tender lamb, and mouthwatering chicken....easily enough to share! Your dinner will arrive with sides including mixed fruit in a type of ambrosia, a nice refreshing compliment to the heady spices. Fragrant, genuine basmati (as opposed to cheap plain white rice found in some lesser restaurants) just takes the tandoori meats over the top. End your meal with a cup of creamy chai or a mango lassi, and you will surely achieve Nirvana. Plan at least an hour and a half, or you will miss out on the best part of a meal at Jewel...the pure indulgence of lingering over a multi-course supper at an Applebee's price. more

Mmm... Jewel 4/28/2010

I love this restaurant. I go at least once a week. The food is delicious, and the service is amazing. I have occasionally gotten a waiter who is less than friendly, but almost everyone who works there is chipper and helpful. I recommend the Chicken Tikka. Pros: great service, delicious food Cons: that they aren't open 24/7, whenever I get a craving more

I'm a foodie...and it's the BEST 10/21/2009

I've honestly never written a review, but I enjoy their food so much I felt as if I just HAD to let the world know! I've lived all over the country and have eaten Indian food in many different cities, but I never thought I would've found my favorite resturant in a strip mall in Westminster. You just gotta check this place out. The dining room takes you on a mini-vacation, but they won't sneer at you if you place an order to go. This place is a gem. Don't cheat yourself - JUST GO!!! Pros: Their food makes my knees weak! Cons: I wish I lived closer to them. more

BEST place for either buffet or dinner! 10/19/2009

This is my favorite Indian Restaurant in Denver. Buffet is constantly renewed with fresh food, and the variety is so vast. Dinner is just amazing, service may slow down during busy hours, but its understandable because of the how busy this place becomes! My Wife and I LOVE this place and come here atleast once a week. For anyone hesitating on trying this place out, try the buffet and you will be hooked! Pros: Food, service, atmosphere more

The food is getting worse 10/18/2009

Don't waste your money , the quality of the food is getting worse , i found stale food in the buffet .\r \r Be aware on this ... look for better alternative Cons: Bad service and the food quality is getting worse more

Best Indian food in colorado 11/9/2008

I love this resturaunt it is my very favorite. The owner is generally on the premises, that says something for the quality control. You can control the spiciness of you dish. I love the coconut chicken. The chai has gotten a little weak over the years but the naan and somosas (I prefer the meat) are sensational. Pros: Ambience, Food, Service, Parking Cons: Weak Chai more

Our favorite Indian buffet 6/4/2008

We've tried a number of Indian restaurants in the metro Denver area (Bombay Clay Oven, Little India, India House, Namaste and Taste of India to name a few), but this is our favorite. We've never been there for dinner, b/c it's too hard to pass up the variety in the lunch buffet. I've looked at the dinner menu, though, and the prices are much more reasonable than dinner menus at other Indian restaurants. (For example, Bombay Clay Oven - dinner prices are a joke at $18-$24, but I think it's just b/c of it's location in Cherry Creek. Still, we were highly disappointed in the dinner at Bombay - we could've gone to Mel's, which is now closed, for the same price.) Even at lunch, Jewel of India's bread is made-to-order (with lots of butter!), not placed on the buffet line like most places. Jewel of India is our favorite, b/c the flavoring and spicing is the best we've had. Also, the variety of offerings at lunch are better than any other Indian lunch buffet we've visited. Most places have the same things (pakora, daal, Saag Paneer, tandoori, tica masaala, the cauliflower/potato dish with curry, rice pudding, mango pudding), but Jewel offers things we never see elsewhere (i.e. eggplant tandoori, shrimp vindaloo, ground lamb with peas & spices, mutab paneer, which is like saag but just with peas instead of spinach). We just don't need to go anywhere else, and luckily, it's close to our house. Sure, the service isn't that great at lunch, but what does one expect at a buffet? It's not like they have to do much. The only bothersome thing is that before the highly favorable review in Westword, the lunch buffet price was $8; nothing in service, quality or variety changed, but immediately after the review in Westword came out, the price went up to $9. We were annoyed at the obvious greed at first, but not enough to not go back. We were just there today! Pros: Lunch buffet value for quality of food Cons: For some, its location in Westminster more

ordinary, at best 5/13/2008

the food is very ordinary. the waiters are always hovering all around you like bees. they are adamant to get you to order dessert even if you do not want to. overall, i have had much better indian food at other places. more

Authentic Indian food without the ridiculous prices! 5/11/2008

I grew up eating authentic indian food and my search for a place in denver came to an end when I found the Jewel of India. I had been to many other indian places here in Denver (House of India, Bombay Clay Oven and Little India) and while these places have decent indian food i don't understand how they have the audacity to charge between $17-24 a platter? The food, atmosphere, service and prices at the Jewel are amazing; i highly recommend the chicken tikka masala or the boti saag it is very traditional. Pros: Price, Authenticity of food, Atmosphere, Service Cons: A little bit of a drive from downtown more

Experienced Indian cuisine consumer says - 1/3/2008

As a journalist who travels around the country (and occasionally to foreign countries), I have had the chance to try a wide range of Indian food restauarants. I can tell you that the food at Jewel of India is not only authentic - but simply superb! I usually eat dinner there and on a rare occasion have the lunch buffet. Dinner is fantastic! The lunch buffet is also very good. I recommend the Chicken Ticca Masala and the Saag is also great! The service is excellent and the decor is very pleasant. The management takes care to make sure the buffet is stocked and fresh. At dinner, the staff and management do an excellent job of making sure your dining experience is what you hope for. I have never been disappointed with a meal from Jewel of India.... as for the one and only one poor review I have read here, it sounds like it was written from a competing restaurant! Because, unless there is an alternate universe somewhere, I have never had an experience even somewhat resembling what this person has written and I have eaten at Jewel of India NUMEROUS times... Go there, eat, and enjoy!!! Pros: Authentic, delicious Indian food Cons: a little pricey, but not too bad more

best indian 4/16/2007

I just read a negative comment about this place. This is my favorite indian food place, Ive been all over the world and nothing even comes close to the excelent taste of this place. Its a little out of my way but is well worth the drive. I believe its owned by a husband and wife, the husband is very nice. I think this resturant is a must among indian lovers! more

worst indian food (they can't cheat some one with good indian tastes) 2/25/2007

We visited the restaurant today and tried the buffet. The vegetable korma served was stale and smelling. When one of the managers was questioned by my husband , we got a reply that the curry smells so naturally. I was surprised at the answer coz he did not even try to smell or taste it before giving an answer. We actually suffered from bad stomach that whole day. The water served was smelling as if it is picked up from a fish tank or frog's well.\r we would strongly not recommend this to anyone who wants to enjoy good indian food.\r Pros: nothing Cons: everything more

Forget the rest - this is the best! 2/24/2007

This is by far the best Indian Restaurant in Colorado. We?ve tried many Indian Restaurants and the Jewel of India tops them all! The food is flavorful without going overboard with the spice. The buffet is a great way to try many dishes. Pros: Quality Cons: Pricey more

Best Indian Restaurant 10/16/2006

Jewel of India offers a delicious lunch buffet and dinner menu. There are a large variety of choices, each prepared with just the right blend of spices. The chai is very flavorful and a great accompaniment to the meal. Jewel of India has a very peaceful atmosphere with beautiful indian decor. The owner and staff are attentive and friendly. I give Jewel of India my highest recommendation. Pros: Excellent food, great service and atmosphere more

The BEST Indian food in Colorado! Swaad! (Delicious!) 10/2/2006

Should you get the chance to meander to Westminster and track down the Jewel of India in its little corner-pocket location of the King Sooper's shopping center, order a lot of food. Not because you'll need it--the portions are perfect--but because you will WANT it! This place is divine, as you will be able to smell from the parking lot. The appetizers are always spot on (their pakora is to die for, but order the sampler so that you can make up your own mind), and the naan is outrageously good (the Variety Bread sampler is good with paratha, naan and kulcha, but the naan is so outstanding you might now want to mess with the other types). Moving onto the main course, the tandoori is always mouthwateringly smoky and delicious (my husband's favorite is the Tandoori Mixed Grill which is loaded with clay-oven baked meats), and the curries are out of this world. My personal favorite, though, is the Chicken Madras, which the restaurant will happily make ""Indian Hot"" if you request it, and which will bring a tear to your eye because of its tastiness and serious heat. All dishes can be toned up or down, by the way, so order your heat how you like it--they are happy to accomodate. Other family favorites: the saag paneer, lamb vindaloo, and aloo gobi. We haven't tried the lassis, but I hear that they're great, too. Oh, and don't forget your 10% off coupon from their website (look under the ""Gifts"" section of their website), you'll need it after your table fills with all the dishes from which you just couldn't choose. Hey, at least you'll have the best lunches in the office for a few days! Pros: Perfectly spiced with heat to your specifications, great combos, masterful cooking Cons: Can be tricky to find more

Jewel of India- The BEST Indian food in Colorado! 9/12/2006

I am fortunate enough to call Jewel of India my favorite neighborhood restaurant. My children and I have been eating there since they were born. The service, always with a smile, is refreshing after a long day of standing in lines, and being treated like a stranger. However, while the atmosphere is warm, inviting, and always intimately Indian, and the service is perfect, every time...it's the food that has my family eating out of its hand. The traditional Indian sauces and gravies are rich, creamy, perfectly spiced and consistently delicious. The Chicken Ticca Masala, my personal favorite, is always made with tender, boneless white meat...and there is NEVER a weird chicken bite, which I almost always find other places. The chai tea is always piping hot, and perfectly sweet, and offered up as a perfect compliment to a delicious meal. \r \r You want great Indian food, time after time? Eat here! Pros: Consistently great food, Excellent service, Parking is easy more

Good food, poor service 9/2/2006

This is probably the best Indian food you can get around here - though only in the strictly relative sense. The food is still generic though they do prepare it well. Service poor - no sense of how to be good hosts. They'll rush you to finish your meal if you're even 5 minites into their closing time. more
