Oh my goodness, where do I start...... so it was our special anniversary and we went to Punjab grill to celebrate it..... good was out of the world. We ordered tasting menu and chef Jessie took the initiative to explain what appetizers were and from what part of India they were inspired. First was Pani poori and samosa it was nothing traditional but tasted just like India. So delicious and so flavorful. Second on the menu was compressed watermelon with rasam and oysters they were cold and so refreshing and off course delicious. Third was pintb your bhutta(corn on the cob). You need to experience it to enjoy it. Everything on that corn was delish and reminded both of us of our home. Fourth was amritsari chicken and bonda: these were so delish that I can’t even explain.... I still have the taste in my soul. They were like heaven. If you go please order these 2 things for sure. Fifth was very berry yoghurt. Chef Jessie did his show and we had a frozen yoghurt or lassi with berries. It was delicious and refreshing. And then it was entree and to be honest entree were not so heavy yet so flavorful. We got palak paneer and machi. The sauces were divine. And lastly it was mango kulfi with everything mango. I used to have tangy mango roll up when I was a kid and it reminded me of that so delicious and yum. If you ever plan to visit dc or planning to something special for your loved one please take them here. My husband loved every single thing in it. I would recommend it to everyone...... please visit Punjab grill dc and chef Jessie is really awesome

Punjab Grill was simply amazing! We chose to experience the Chef's tasting menu and we were not disappointed. One incredibly beautiful and delicious dish after another. Our waiter, Boyan, was thoughtful and courteous, our cocktails were wonderful, the chef was professional and informative, all staff were helpful and friendly. The interior is beautiful as well. We highly recommend!

We had one of the most memorable dinners ever! We’ve dined all over the world, but this culinary experience was one to remember. The ambiance, the drinks, the wine and the 7 course tasting menu were exquisite. The burst of flavors in each meal and the chef accompanying each course and explaining the flavors were “icing on the cake”
I had been following Punjab Grill on social media since they opened and I am glad we finally had the opportunity to taste the amazing flavors.

Phenomenal service! I have lived in DC for 7 years and this was the best service I ever received. The owner introduced himself and was available. The chef also came to our table. The staff was attentive and helpful. The food was delicious, unique, and really beautiful. Overall, a truly wonderful dining experience! No wonder they are on the Michelin shortlist. Would highly recommend!!

The food and service were amazing - khumb galouti, malai broccoli, goat biryani, chicken curry, goat cheese kulcha and kathal kofta were all exceptional - the lemon naan was an unexpected tasty treat! Oh and the desserts - chocolate cake and the paneer cheesecake - I am still dreaming about them! But most of all, the coronavirus prep was unmatched - a person at the front door so guests didn't have to touch the door handle, a person wiping the restroom door handle after each use, our table was sanitized after every course, and all waiters were wearing gloves - it was very reassuring.
