The food was good but completely overshadowed by the horrendous service. We ordered one appetizer and two entrees and the whole thing took 2 hours, most of it spent waiting for the waiter. I would strongly encouraged anyone interested in this restaurant to dine elsewhere.

We've come to Punjab Grill twice now and both times the experience was great. Menu options are extremely creative and off the beaten path. Very unique versions of traditional punjab dishes, something my wife and I appreciate very much. I give this place 5 stars for service, quality of food and ambiance. Great all around date spot for that special someone.

We've gotten take out from Punjab Grill many times, and this was our first time dining in--wowow. I can talk forever about how good their food is but the dining in experience (even during Covid times) was amazing. The service was astounding and the presentation of the food and everything in between blew us away. No regrets, we love this place.

I’d heard great things about this restaurant. But I wasn’t too impressed with the food we got for the price we paid. The food was pretty mediocre overall and the bill was pretty high.

Great cocktails and the food was fantastic. Found this place by accident and I’m glad I did, the elk shoulder was so good. And the service was better than any restaurant I’ve ever been to.

Excellent restaurant! Not your average Indian food - everything was wonderful and beautifully presented. Worth going to just to see the interior which was all imported from India. Interesting teas and cocktails. Will be returning.

Decided to come to dc for a nice meal, we usually eat at Joes Rasika or punjab grill...the food this time was horrible..vegan biryani had zero taste...chaat was so gross and their daal had zero taste...if i could give them zero stars i would...they charge you am imsane amount for sich embarrassing punjabi cooking...go to rasika instead or honestly go to ravi kabob house in arlington if you want authentic incredible punjabi cooking...im so disappointed with everything we ordered and the $190 bill at the end of dinner...im never eating here again...and rasika is so much better ...or any other kabob joint in northern va

Wow wow wow! Again they exceed expectations! Tonight we had the Venison special with wonderful cardamom spice and it was outstanding. The lamb is my go to dish and it was spectacular as usual. Chicken Tikka Sampler is great as well. The service is impeccable. Please come here and enjoy this gem of a restaurant! Oh and Devin makes killer cocktails - better than Bar Mini. Yes!!
