Jewel Balti is something like the – well, it’s hard to resist – jewel in the crown of casual contemporary Indian dining in Monmouth. Established for nigh on two decades, Jewel Balti has earned a reputation for reliably delicious but very affordable Indian food on Drybridge Street, particularly for their ability to take time-tested traditional dishes and breathe new life into them. You can find premium versions of all the familiar Anglo-Indian favourites here, from sizzling tandoori treats to various biryani meals and of course the eponymous balti in diverse forms. However, Jewel Balti is also a fabulous place to extend your palate when it comes to food, perhaps in the direction of a scintillating South Indian bhuna-style curry loaded with garlic, or a perfectly sweet and sour Monchurin chicken curry. Jewel Balti could hardly be better located in Monmouth, just over Monnow Bridge by Drybridge Park, and it’s well worth a visit for any South Asian food fans in town.
Excellent food, modern and well decorated. Great service too, and price good. But please nobody ever go here because then it will be too busy for me to go back.....joking obs! Best Indian have had in a long time!!
