If you are looking for the finest Indian food in Prague, look no further. Indian Jewel offers an authentic flavour of India right in the heart of the city. It is set on a lovely small square, just a couple of minutes walk from the Old Town Square
As a fairly new restaurant, Indian Jewel has spotted a gap in the market by offering an Indian restaurant experience along the lines of a good UK curry house.
The welcome from the staff is warm and friendly, with waiters dressed in typical Indian attire. The restaurant is clean and freshly decorated. And traditional Indian music is played in the background.
The ingredients used in the meals are fresh, and they prepare and present the dishes well, in copper pots. The food is not oily, which is where some Indian restaurants fall down.
The hotter dishes pack plenty of punch, but there are some enjoyable milder ones too such as their speciality Tandoori Murgh (grilled chicken which has been marinated in yoghurt and saffron).
The lamb and chicken used in the curries is soft and tender. And they also have a good fish curry. But it is difficult to recommend particular dishes, as Indian food is so much about individual taste - how hot you like it, how creamy, etc. However, diners will enjoy most dishes, and you may like to save room for the Indian ice-cream.
The drinks menu has a few Czech and International wines, along with beers, spirits and basic cocktails, set at standard prices for this part of town.
In the warmer months there is the option of sitting outside on a terrace, which offers diners views over the charming Tınskı Dvur Square.
Indian Jewel draws in Czech as well as International visitors. It offers well-priced, nicely presented food in a friendly environment suitable for business and leisure, including for families.
It is advisable to book. Indian restaurants of this nature are hard to find in Prague, which makes it popular both at lunchtime and during the evening.
