Our Story

For the past twenty five years, The Jewel in the Crown Indian Restaurant in Dublin has been serving the highest quality Indian cuisine to the discerning diner in the heart of the city. We are Dublin’s longest serving Indian restaurant and have stood the test of time by making it our mission to offer the highest quality food and impeccable service while still offering great value to our customers.

Jewel in the Crown has two perfect locations. With one restaurant on the bustling South William Street in the heart of Dublin’s Creative Quarter in the city centre, and the other located in Ballsbridge, just minutes from Dublin’s RDS, Aviva Stadium and top hotels The Hilton and the Clayton, we are ideally located.

Our venues are designed as somewhere you can meet friends, relax and enjoy exceptional cuisine for lunch or dinner. As for the food - we believe it speaks for itself!

The phrase ‘The Jewel in the Crown’ was formerly used to describe India’s place in the British Empire. The British viewed Indian this way because it was their most valuable possession, and today the phrase represents strong value and tradition in the Indian culture. Food is the centre piece of our culture and we aim to give a memorable experience to all of our customers.
