Jewel Rock!

Location : Sri Harsha Road, Mysore

Cuisine: Multi Cuisine

Walking through Sri Harsha road, one can find a number of restaurants – the Andhra style to the multi cuisine. One of these myriad restaurants is ‘Jewel Rock’. With the symbol ‘JR’ outside, it ensures people don’t miss it.

Jewel Rock is a multi cuisine restaurant with Chinese, North Indian, South Indian cuisines. Vegetarian as well as non – vegetarian options are available here.

 If you get to the restaurant around 8 in the evening, it might be a little difficult to find a table. After a little bit of waiting, you will be helped by the waiters for finding a good table in the softly lit setting of the restaurant.
Jewel Rock is best for a relatively quite dinner with family (A roof top option which serves alcohol is also available) The place is medium sized with tables in close proximity of each other. The space utilization is quite commendable but if you are the kind of person who needs to exercise your kinesthetic freedom, Jewel Rock may not be the best place for you.

For starters, the spring rolls, Manchurians, masala papad are the best options if you are a vegetarian. For non vegetarians, the tandoori platter, kalmi kabab, haryali kabab and chicken soup are the best bet.
The vegetarian North Indian options include rotis, subzis and the different rice dishes like biryani and pulao. The veg. hyderabadi, veg kolhapuri,veg dopyaza, malai kofta etc are tasty and well prepared. For the non vegetarians, the chicken hyderabadi, chicken chettinad etc are excellent. The chicken here is generally well cooked and has a fine taste. There are juices and ice creams for dessert.

The service is quick however, the waiters are not always courteous.The prices are justified for middle class pockets. A meal for two would cost Rs.250

Jewel Rock is one of those places which can be frequented with family and friends. It is simple and serves good food.  There are concerns that the place is losing its earlier charm and the quality of food is deteriorating. Hope they keep up the name they have earned.
