not for gluten free but great food!
Love this place !! My only wish is that they had a starch-free option instead of rice or naan with the grills and curries. We would come more often if there was! Service amazing as always and.

Service wasn't very attentive
Service wasn't very attentive or trained on basics of table service, but the food more than made up for it. Best Indian food I have ever had.

We made a reservation and our table was ready for us even though it was mother's day. The service was good and not intrusive. We ordered south indian food, which is often not on most indian restaurant menus, The food arrived quickly (15 minutes) and was very good. Quite spicy, which we expected. The further south you go, the hotter the food. Anyone not used to spicy food should ask for mild. It was a nice experience & I would go back. The menu includes all 5 cuisines of India, and it would take many visits to sample them all.

Best Indian Food in Boston
I've been going to Punjab for years and have never once been disappointed. Amazing food and spectacular service. A true gem.

Best Local Indian Food
Punjab boasts the best Indian food in the area. Plenty of excellent vegetarian selections as well. Even the mild has a little kick, so you can enjoy the spiciness without being overwhelmed.

Great Dining Experience
This was the best dining experience I've had in a long time. The ambiance was wonderful, the wait staff exceptional, and the food was perfect! But the best part was how well they handled multiple food allergies (dairy, nuts, eggs, sesame seed, coconut) with knowledge and care making us feel totally comfortable while choosing from the dozen or more allergy friendly dishes.
We've definitely found our new favorite restaurant!

We enjoyed our meal, liked the ambiance in the center of the restaurant (they have a nice setup that is surprisingly private seeming considering the size of the restaurant). We got the veg app platter, the yellow dal meal, a chickpea meal and two lamb meals. We loved the veg options and our friends enjoyed their lamb options but said they wished they had known their options would be dry (not like stewed lamb). Service was pretty attentive. Only annoyance was that despite my making a reservation through Opentable & checking in with the front desk when I arrived, they did not check our reservation in. Luckily OT was able to work with the restaurant to resolve this so I did get my points but it was a little annoying.

The food was exceptional, especially the vegetable pakoras and the korma sauce. The only disappointment was the meat samosas. They were so bland that they were almost tasteless. I have been many times to this restaurant and love it.

Amazing food-perfect for sharing
We had a large party of 12, and the service was both fast and attentive. After sharing a few appetizer platters, we each ordered our own entree, which were all big enough for passing around and having everyone try something new. We had some people with us whose first time it was eating Indian cuisine- and the meal was exemplary of the variety and sheer tastiness that the style has to offer. The Biryani, Korma, and naan were all to die for. The channa bhaturi was also fantastic- and the bhaturi came out as two enormous puffs- everyone at the table wanted to pop them and try some.

Always a hit
No matter if I'm stopping in for a quick bite an my way to here or there, meeting a friend for dinner, or accommodating a larger group before an event, my experiences here have been nothing but wonderful. The food is always good, if you've not had Indian food you need not worry what to start with. Medium hot is tastefully spivey, go from there :)
The Masala (chai) 'tea' is beautifully spiced and since they offer a rock candy sugar stick you can decided how sweet to make it, if at all ;)
There's nothing like a dosa for lunch!

Best korma ever!
I took my friend here for her birthday. She eats a LOT of Indian food, and she just raved about the korma here (she got one of the veggie dishes). It was the best korma I've ever had, too. I got the saag paneer, which was fine but a little bland (it seemed to have more flavor as leftovers 2 days later). The plain naan was also very good - nice and buttery. It's a nice atmosphere - spacious layout, and one of the nicest Indian restaurants I've been to (I usually find them to be decorated rather blandly, or a bit overly ornate).

Delicious food, wide-ranging menu
I've dined in many Indian restaurants, and was thrilled to find new delicious items on Punjab's menu. Everything was tasty and enjoyable. Highly recommended!

Great Indian Restaurant in Arlingto
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.

Party of 6
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?
