User Reviews for Punjab
Its hard to write a review for Punjab as it is an icon and one is bound to go there at some point if in London - it's absolutely worth trying at least once!
The starters are all worth trying although the Kadu puri and tikki are my favourites. I love love love their tandoori - by the time I get through these, I'm usually full but press on!!
The black daal (which is apparently a secret recipe from the family) and the punjabi chole are brilliant as are the 2 paneer dishes (makhani and Karahi).
I've only tried the phirni (or was it kheer?!) once and recall that it was very good. The sweet lassi is amazing too but the chai is worth giving a miss as is coffee!
I'm not a big fan of the decor or the constant crowd in the waiting area. I don't understand why they don't buy out a couple of the little (not doing so well) shops next door and expand the place. So I completely agree with some of the other reviewers on that!
The oldest Indian restaurant in London owes its longevity to extremely tasty dishes in a cozy atmosphere and impeccable service. Legend has it that their client had twice a day, five days per week, for 20 years. Tip: If you go, a serving of rice is enough for two people, especially if you take a nan everyone! The menu is available on their website.
when we were in London in 2010, Punjaab was our regular dining place.. excellent Indian food... aloo paratha and cheese garlic naan are out of the world! the paneer makkhanwali and daal makhani are simply outstanding - even better than those served by restaurants in India! those who are in London now - MUST go to this place for excellent Indian cuisine!
This place is said to be the oldest North Indian restaurant in London.(although this seems hard to believe considering the taste and food quality)
We went there after watching Phantom of the Opera nearby with a couple of friends and were extremely hungry. Much to our disappointment, the food was mediocre.
There is nothing great about the food or the ambience.
The restaurant was small and the tables are quite cramped together. The portion size was below expectation - especially the starter.
Service is staid but polite and quick.
The only dish we liked was Achaari Murgh( a signature dish that they claim should be tried once in a lifetime)- It was well spiced and nicely cooked. My wife ordered dal Makhani which was too bland. Nothing authentic about it.
This place is surely over hyped. It just doesn't live up-to the expectations.
Would not like to visit this place again!!
I see a lot a people complaining about the rude treatment meted out to them at Punjab. I have been here a couple of times and thankfully have no such bitter experience to share. The food here is very authentic and tasty, but the portions are rather small and it is priced a bit steeply.
