I love Jewel of India for so many different reasons. I love that the more often I go, the more friendly the whole family gets. I love that their daughter looks curiously for a while and then comes over and chats for a spell. I haven't found better pakora in all of Seattle! I really like that there aren't 4 servers per table refilling my water glass after every sip. Finally an Indian restaurant on the Ave that I can carry on a normal conversation in without being interrupted every two minutes.
