|For the finest Indian food in Prague look no further than Indian Jewel, situated just 2 minutes walk from the Old Town Square and 5 minutes from Wenceslas Square.|
Indian Jewel offers an Indian restaurant experience akin to a good curry house in the UK. The welcome from staff is friendly, with waiters dressed in typical Indian attire ready to serve. Traditional Indian music plays in the background.
The restaurant was newly renovated in 2021, so is clean and fresh.
It is noticeable that quality ingredients have been employed in the preparation of the food. The meals are flavoursome and warming, and on the whole not oily, which is where Indian restaurants in Prague sometimes fall down.
Meals are well presented too, some in copper pots.
The hot dishes pack plenty of punch, such as the madras and vindaloo. The milder ones possess fine, subtle flavours, for example their speciality Tandoori chicken and prawn dishes (marinated in yoghurt and saffron).
The lamb and chicken used in the curries is soft and tender, and Indian Jewel also cooks a good fish curry.
It is difficult to recommend particular dishes, as Indian food is so much about individual taste. Is it clean and fresh tasting is problem the right question to ask, and on this we can reply a definite yes.
The drinks menu lists Czech and International wines, along with beers, spirits and basic cocktails. Pilsner Urquell goes nicely with Indian food.
Indian Jewel Restaurant is popular with Czechs and tourists, both of whom seek out the authentic flavours of India right in the heart of Prague.
The restaurant is suitable for business and leisure diners, but it is advisable to book. Indian restaurants of this nature are hard to find in Prague, which makes it popular at lunchtime and in the evening
