Directions to Jewel Of India
The city of Durban has immense appeal, in part due to its warm, ethnic mix. The colonial past seemingly jostles with its African heritage and Eastern appeal for attention. But none of these elements over-rides the other, and Durban's cultural heritage always manages to come through - exotic and ever changing. Durban is home to the largest Indian population outside of India and Pakistan, and its Indian culture helps to define the city. Indian culinary traditions are part of this experience, and assorted culinary delights are on offer in several restaurants in the Durban metropole. But if you want to savour the real taste of India and are interested in a culinary adventure, it might be best to start the journey at the Jewel Of India restaurant, the first authentic Indian cuisine restaurant in KwaZulu-Natal, and one of its best known.
Situated inside the Southern Sun Elangeni, a frontline hotel at Durban's North Beach, the Jewel Of India restaurant is conveniently positioned and in walking distance of many beachfront attractions, including the Suncoast Casino and Entertainment World. Whether you be a tourist enjoying a leisurely holiday, or a business person on an overnight stay, the Jewel Of India has much to offer the adventurous palate. This exquisite restaurant is decorated with intricate brocaded applique work and ornately sculptured woodwork, epitomizing the grandeur of India's past. The decor and warm ambience are an enticing entree to the delights that follow. These include a wide array of curry dishes and north Indian delicacies. Spice and flavour are what Indian cuisine is all about, and this trails indelibly through a most extensive menu, which includes seafood, chicken, lamb and vegetable curries. From the subtle Mugali dishes to the fiery extreme of frontier cuisine cooked with selected herbs. And end your meal with some succulent Indian desserts.
Open for lunch from 12h00 to 15h00 and for dinner from 17h00 to 22h30 throughout the week, the award winning Jewel Of India restaurant offers authentic Indian cuisine at its very best. Its exceptional service and warm family setting help to confirm its status as one of the best restaurants on Durban's Golden Mile.
