About Jewel of India

For a burst of vibrancy in both flavour and culture in Manuka, book in for a delectable culinary experience at Jewel of India restaurant on Bougainville Street. Recently refurbished, Jewel of India’s spacious interior is set in tones of deep blue, from thick carpet to upholstered chairs with intimate tables laden in white linen for formal dining, while wide windows provide a sunny outlook to the greenery of nearby trees. Finding a balance between dishes inspired by authentic recipes and creating a modern take on classics sees a loyal local following returning for mouth-watering feasts. Perhaps opt for spicy onion bhaji to start with mint and tamarind chutney; followed by tawa goat – diced goat pieces tossed with capsicum, onion, spices and sides of steamed rice, garlic naan and papadums.

Really good food and excellent service


Fantastic food, very courteous and friendly staff, excellent ambience
Shonan is a fabulous host and made us feel very welcome. Has a big heart and a hearty laugh. God bless him







THE best Indian cuisine in Canberra. Hands down!! Everything is fresh and the service is lovely. A creative explosion of flavors in your mouth. What sets it apart is the consistency in taste.


Great food and service. Highly recommend enjoying classic Indian cuisine here



Very nice butter chicken. Garlic naan was perfect. Service ok.


Because it's hidden away, it's good for romantic dinners. I liked the depth of the slow cooked food. Very nice in deed.
