I admit I am not an expert in Indian cuisine. But my wife and I had a wonderful meal at Shere-E-Punjab. The staff was very friendly. The space is modern but a bit worn. The food is the star, though. We started with vegetable samosas, which were flavorful and came with two accompaniments (sorry, don't know what they're called, but they were delicious). My wife ordered malai kofta, which are vegetable balls, and she loved them. I tried a tandoori mixed grill, which was a special with chicken, salmon and shrimp. It was served with onions on a sizzling cast-iron plate (like Indian fajitas), and the meat was full of flavor and very tender (I've had dry tandoori chicken other places). The garlic naan was great, too.

This restaurant is a little hard to find at the back end of a strip mall, but it's definitely worth locating.

Our go-to spot for Indian food just keeps getting better. Service has improved dramatically over the years and I was delighted on this last visit to find that most of the wines on their menu were actually available (in my experience they normally have a very limited selection). Food was exceptional and plentiful, which is why it is our go-to spot.

This is some of the best Indian food I've had outside of New York. They are a little hesitant to up the spice for Americans, but the flavors and the preparations are superb. We had the chicken tikka, the Tewa stew, Papdi Chat, daily special shrimp, raita, and mixed pickle. The margarita was excellent. We'll be back.

The food was excellent. We tried a few new things, and some old standards and enjoyed them all. We asked for level3 hotness, one of our guests would have preferred 2.5 :-). The Web site didn't mention that they have a full bar.

We love Shere-E-Punjab! The food is fresh and delicious and tastes like it's made with love. The gentlemen who served us were so nice and happy to answer any questions for us. They're very mindful of the spice level that you order. I recommend the vegetable samosas, chicken tikka masala, the chicken korma, and the biriyanis. I would come back again and again.

This review is not for Shere e Punjab, but for Open Table. I made a reservation on Christmas day and the restaurant wasn't open. Open table did not have the correct information. Regardless of who's fault it is that the restaurant was closed, it was disappointing. I won't be trusting open table in the future.

I had not eaten here for a few years and was looking forward to trying it again. The service was good-staff very helpful. Great mulligatawny soup, but much of the meal was sub-par. Pappadum were stale, cauliflower in aloo gobi had clearly been frozen- soggy in the center and the sauce not very tasty. We did have a great chaat appetizer.

We reserved this venue for lunch after our wedding rehearsal; my fiance is Indian, so we thought it would be nice. When I was ordering my food the waiter asked what spice level I wanted and I said, "1, not spicy at all because I have acid reflux" and that was it. I get my food and it's burning my throat, and then he decides to tell me all the chicken dishes cooked in the tandoori oven are pre-marinated and are medium (3) heat, and it would have taken 30 minutes to cook it fresh. I told him that would have been great to know before I ordered it, and I would have waited but now did not have time because we had ziplining reservations for my bachelorette party. So he brings me a menu and I ask about other food and he basically says everything is pre-marinated except chicken curry. I tell him I don't eat chicken curry and I just want seasoned chicken--nothing in a sauce, but he insists this will be fine. I get it, and it is chicken sitting in a thick sauce which I personally would not touch with a ten foot pole. So I ended up not eating anything all day on my bachelorette party until night time. Also, my wedding party agreed this place had some of the worst naan we've ever tasted. So overall, super disappointed and I have no idea how they have a 4.7 star rating on Google.

Shere-E-Punjab is one of my favorite local restaurants and the top of my list for Indian cuisine. Be adventurous when ordering - you really can't go wrong. Be prepared to wait for your drink order, we have taken to arriving before our reservation and sitting at the bar for a cocktail before being seated. Problem solved!

My husband, daughter, granddaughter and I went to Shere e Punjab for my birthday - because it was located midway between my daughter's house and our house and we love Indian food. Both the service and the food were very good. We shared a wonderful gobi pakora (cauliflower fritters) appetizer as well as samosas. My daughter ordered a vegetarian saag dish while I ordered the saag with chicken and my husband ordered a lamb curry. All were very tasty and the portions were generous. One is able to choose from 5 levels of spiciness which greatly pleased my granddaughter who can't tolerate spicy food. We were very pleased with our meals and would definitely return.

Booked Shere-E-Punjab because it was on the way from the airport to my hotel for a business trip and I was craving Indian food. I am so glad I did. My wife and I lived in the UK for awhile and I have not had lamb curry of this high quality since then. Everything was fantastic and the service attentive. I will definitely be back.

What a find. Food was great across the board. Veggie pakoras were excellent. Main dishes, although a bit mild, tasted great. The dessert (gajar halwa) was just average, but I look forward to trying other desserts next time I dine here. The only big downside was that I mentioned that I was celebrating a birthday on my reservation with Opentable and there was absolutely no acknowledgement of it by the staff or manager. My local go-to Indian restaurant treats us better for special occasions usually bringing us a complimentary dessert and thanks us for celebrating a birthday with them.

The food is very good if you like Indian. There are lots of choices on the menu including vegetation. Portions are large - there were 6 of us and three entree's plus two appetizers was sufficient. One of the people in our party cannot eat anything too spicy so it is great that one can choose degree of "heat" for each dish.
We have been to this restaurant before and will continue to come for a good meal with Indian spices.

Delicious, Authentic Indian Food. We were able to sit right down and our server came immediately to our table for our drink order. Our appetizer was delious and came out quickly. Our entrees were well seasoned and the size was generous. My daughter loved that she could chose the spice level of her meal. Definitely will go back again!

My boyfriend (now fiancé!) brought me here to this restaurant a year ago. We are now regulars at this establishment and love the food! As we are both of Indian descent (me being North Indian and he being South Indian), we are very familiar with the various cuisines of the Indian culture. The food here is always fresh and made-to-order with regards to the level of spice. The wait staff is very courteous and the owner of the restaurant is always chatting with us when we stop in for a late dinner on weekends. Highly recommended!

Delicious Indian Food in a nice atmosphere, we will definitely return. We had Korma and Masala and both were flavorful and authenticity Indian; we chose a level 3 medium-spicy and would probably go with a 2 next time. Naan was big, one should be enough for two people. Prices seemed a little higher ($2.00 higher per entrée) than other local Indian food.
Place was busy, which is a good sign.
