Had lunch at Jewel of India. We had the Lamb Rogan Josh and Chicken Tikka Masala. The food was not bad , but expected more. The garlic naan was okay, wasn't very tasty as they use the bottled garlic, not fresh bulbs. The service was above average.

I'd call it the Jewel of Summertime. A great place, reminding me of some ancient summers of a lifetime ago. Naborre, Melendez, Shamrock and all those crazy times..... They are gone, bye. But the memory remains, isn't so?! Great food here and some cool service. Cheap prices too.

The restaurant is situated below a fancy hotel. We noticed it seemed empty most of the time. Perhaps people were taking food out we thought. Ordered the Chana masala...
