I’m a big fan of Jewel of India because you are not just given a meal, but transported into another world when you enter the restaurant – you can easily forget that you’re in Oslo. From the decadent interior styling to the service and waiter’s clothing, to the array of dishes and beautifully presented plates, it doesn’t get better than Jewel of India for a rich Indian dining experience.
I love Indian food and curries are definitely high up on my list of favourite cuisines, but Jewel of India offers the whole package. It’s quite expensive in comparison to other curry houses in Oslo, but I think it’s worth the extra experience.
The restaurant is located in the Frogner area, which is higher-end than other parts of Oslo, so if you’re on holiday where you’re not counting your pennies, Jewel of India is a great place to spend them. There are also lots of places to continue your evening after you plant your feet firmly back on the ground outside the door.
The dishes are plentiful and they fill your table with all sorts of extras throughout the meal, so don’t be afraid if you can’t choose. My favourite dish is the “Masala Lam”, a traditional dish from northern India, but it all depends on your tastes.
