Fine Indian Cuisine at the UofM

This Indian restaurant has a great buffet (with many veg options) during the week, and a variety of vegetarian and vegan entrees. Even their dishes with animal flesh can be made vegan upon request. Very nice and romantic atmosphere.

I went to the Jewel of India last night with a group of friends and was dissatisfied overall. After we sat down it took a very long time to have our order taken, and many who arrived after us were served before we were. Once our order was taken our food arrived in a decent amount of time, but the wrong dish was delivered to one of my friends and another's dish arrived late. We had ordered 3 baskets of naan, but the second didn't arrive until halfway through the meal and the third didn't arrive until we had all finished eating. The food tasted good, but the slow and faulty service was a serious drawback.

This is one place where your best result is from asking the staff what is especially good that day, rather than following the menu or asking for something "special". If you say you prefer vegan, find what is available, and then order from among those selections, all will be well. The first time I went, the wait person was horrified at the combination I was ordering, suggested a substitute, and I was pleased, he was happy, and all was well. Since then, I ask, I try to stay "in season", and I have had very good food in vast quantities at low prices.
