Diner Reviews
  • "I've eaten at Punjab about a half dozen times but never again. Seated at 7:30, we didn't get served until 9:20. Utterly incompetent and lying staff. Never have I ever received such poor and indifferent service."

  • "I meet my girlfriends for dinner about 4x/year and we always enjoy ourselves but that is easy when we select Punjab b/c the food is always excellent, the wait staff is courteous and respects our time together and limits interruptions."

  • "We enjoyed a late lunch, and the service and food were excellent. Attentive wait staff (we never had empty glasses). Dhosas were especially delicious. We ordered a hot/spicy lamb saagwala, and it wasn't especially hot, but the spice in every dish was well balanced. We'd eat here again!"

  • "Of those restaurants with a more or less standard American Indian menu Punjab is about the best. There are a couple of better places with unique, "gourmet" menus, but outside of them you can't beat Punjab;."

  • "Good Indian food at decent price. Great variety. Spicy if you want to. Great Indian deserts as well."

  • "The food is excellent, and the menu includes Indian dishes I've not seen at other restaurants, and it is reasonably priced. The interior design is understated and cozy, cleverly separating diners from the bar area and its TVs. The wait staff is attentive and friendly. We had a delightful evening."

  • "Satisfies your craving for Indian food. Nothing unusual or unique, just good flavors and friendly service."

  • "The chicken tikka masala and the naan bread are addictive there!"

  • "Punjab is the best Indian restaurant in the Metro West area of Boston. The food is second to none, and the menu has more to offer than most. The surprising bonus is that they also have a great drinks menu. Try the Mangorita with your spicy Indian cuisine - not too sweet, it's cold and refreshing and you taste the tequila. Top that off with the nicest wait staff and you have a great night out."

  • "This is not French cooking, but it is the very best Indian food in the Greater Boston area. We try others, but keep coming back over and over."

  • "Having run the gauntlet of curry houses in Brick Lane, East London and beyond, the wife and I are more than pleased with this establishment. We first experienced Punjab last year for our 10th anniversary and it was such a great time we did the same for our 11th. The food is fresh and authentic, the staff could not have been more considerate and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. And what may become my favorite mixed drink of all time, the "Punjabi Summertime" was a brilliant night-cap."

  • "Our party of 6 enjoyed appetizers, breads and 5 great entrees to share. Punjab always does an excellen job on everything they put on the table. Fresh and clean flavors were the order of the day. Our only disappointment was their unwillingness to make a special order of chili pepper naan (it is not on their menu). Other than that we would highly recommend a visit."

  • "The curries are delicious and they serve great naans. Desserts were disappointing though. We ordered Gulab Jamun which seemed out of a can."

  • "Good meal. Fun watching the tandoori oven. Love the South Indian food which is not often available. Major complaint was service. Despite the restaurant being quite empty we were initially seated in a thoroughfare and only on request were we seated in the back. Also took awhile to get the attention of a waiter to get our check"

  • "This restaurant, a former favorite, has decreased both food service and food quality. They clearly cannot handle a busy Saturday night with reduced staff."

  • "I could eat here every night. Consistently delicious, hot food. Consistently attentive, friendly wait staff."

  • "I was able to get a table for 6 people on a Saturday night, without any problem. The food was delicious. My husband and I shared the Chicken Curry, Chicken Tikka Marsala, and Garlic Naan - which were all fabulous. Once our party all arrived, however, it took about 20 minutes for someone to visit our table and even bring us menus and take a drink order. We made sure to order our food as soon as our drinks returned, just in case there was another long delay. There were also long periods between checking in at the table, refilling waters, ordering a second round of drinks, etc. Maybe it's European style service?"

  • "Punjab has taken over as our favorite Indian place. We used to go to Cambridge with excellent results but find this place a touch better. I think the best way to describe it is that all of there sauces are "cleaner." By that I mean each sauce is distinct and different. Five of us went last Saturday and each ordered something different (we shared!). The goat curry, chicken tikka masala, lamb josht, shrimp vindaloo and duck kebab were so tasty that we didn't have anything left to bring home! The appetizer plate with Papdum and two different Naans all disappeared. I lert my credit card behind by mistake and when I called to see if they found it they cheerfully mailed it to my home. Great people and excellen food."
