I don't know how this place gets decent ratings... I had the Veg korma and it shouldn't even count as a curry! It was like peas floating in thin coconut milk. The service was awful and it was an all-around disappointing experience. Yes, it's cheap...More

What a disappointment. We were looking forward to delicious Indian meal but what we got was watery and bland. The portion size was good and if you are not a connoisseur, it might be passable.

I always get the Non-Veg Thali for $13.50 or so and it comes with three curries, naan, papadum, yogurt and mixed pickle. It's amazing you can get so much variety for so cheap. I love coming here because I can pick and choose a few...More

If you wish to enjoy Indian Food, Jewel of Bombay is an average place. Whule the portion size is good enough ... The taske is average. The flavour of Indian spices is somewhat missing. Don't keep your expectations high if you are trying Indian Food...More

This Indian fast food-type food bar has great samosa's. Some vegetarian options, but not too many vegan options that aren't loaded with onions and garlic. Everything is pre-prepared in trays so it very much limits the option if your vegan with 'grumpy tummy'! The place...More

Had butter chicken with rice and naan here, the butter chicken was greasy and bland, the rice was greasy and soggy and the naan was rock hard. All in all, don't bother going here and go somewhere else!

Takeaway. We got a 2 vege curry on rice for $12 plus 2 samosas. There was so much rice forced into the container the guy serving could hardly put the curry topping on. We basically got rice with a tablespoon of vege curry on top....More
