When you first park in front of Punjab sweets, it looks as if you just stopped at a pawn shop. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, when I entered punjab sweets my thoughts brought me to a 360. The food was so yummy! The waitresses there

I eat at many Indian restaurants this is by FAR THE WORST. The curries taste like yesterdays left over only watered down and tons of salt added served with old bread "roti". The SERVER IS ABSOLUTELY RUDE!
There is no reason for rudeness

We went there for lunch - the lady was rude to us when taking our orders. Another lady came to our table and served some food and mumbled something and so we assumed that it was on the house. When we started eating it the lady came over and started yelling even though we said that we were sorry and would pay for it.
They treat customers like trash and really spoil the dining experience

Punjab sweets is one of the first Indian authentic restaurants I've been to and I loved it! It is relatively cheap and offers a wide variety to chose from. Their Maki Di Roti with Saag is amazing and is just under $10.

We had heard about this place from few people. So we drove 30 miles to check it out. We ordered thali, chana bhatura, some appetizers and some sweets. Food was expensive for its quantity and taste was average. Chana bhaturas were good but everything else was average. Sweets were not at all good. Service was also terrible. I waited for 10 minutes for ordering an extra bhatura while 2 girls there just kept looking. Even after ordering, girl there kept standing and didn't even go inside to check if it was ready. I had to wait for 20 minutes to get one bhatura. Terrible. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. For such an average place, don't waste your time.

Pros: You get indian food

Cons: Service, food, price

Punjab Sweets is some of the best Indian food and vegetarian food I've had. Parotha, Channa Samosa, Bhindi, etc - this is one of the most authentic Indian restaurants you'll find in the Puget Sound. They have a great candy section as well. (which they sell online I believe...). Punjab Sweets I believe has also won many awards for their food as well....

Pros: Value, Taste, Food

Cons: location

Bad service, had to wait around the counter for way longer than a reasonable time while another unlucky customer waited behind me in line-- two girls at the counter were too busy talking and going back and forth to the kitchen. They clearly knew their customer service was below par, but they failed to acknowledge the waiting customers or even offer a customery sorry or appologies.

I used to frequent this place and yesterday I took my family from out of town there hoping for a great dinner. Even though I had noticed the fall in standards in the quality of food in the last few visits, I wanted to believe that they were probably those one off days. But yesterdays visit has left a very bad taste in my mouth. The paneer pakoras were uncooked. WE could taste the chickpea four in the pakoras. In the main course, we were actually served food that had gone bad. I had ordered for Saag and makki ki roti. The saag had gone bad and the makki ki roti was uncooked. Again, I could taste and see the uncooked corn flour in the makki roti. I think what took the cake was when I told them about the uncooked roti, they took my rotis in (I had taken couple bites from the roti), reheated it and brought it back. As you can imagine, when you reheat rotis, they become papads (stiff crispies). They took all the feedback but charged us for the food we ordered but couldn't eat. I had heard bad reviews about the place lately but now they have lost me as a customer.

I will drive to Punjab Sweets from Bellevue because its better than most if not all Indian Restaurants around because...its fresh and relatively cheap and its simple really, really good. I'm surprised this isn't talked about in the same breath as the best Indian Restaurants in Seattle...
Maki Di Roti with Saag is amazing!
The Channa Samosa's are awesome.
This restaurant would have lines out the door on the Eastside or in Seattle. No question. Definitely worth the travel. They have really good & unique Indian / ethnic candy as well.

This place has raved reviews and they are very proud of the press converage they have received as demonstrated through the press cuttings displayed on the wall but beware...

Their somosas are below average. The paneer pokaras and veggie pokoras were very stodgy and may well have been a couple of days old simply reheated in the microwave.

C'mon guys - don't think you can run a below par joint now that you have had a handful of good reviews.

Our friends from Bombay and New Delhi recommend that we eat here saying it was the best Indian food in the area (unless Shavani?s mom is visiting from Bombay). They were right! We?ll often call in an order of the sampler plate of appetizers, a parotha and aloo gobi and take it home. We?ve tried many of the dishes, sometimes with our friends as guides on their favorite dishes and we?ve never been disappointed.

Pros: Very tasty, low prices, made fresh

Cons: The strip mall/neighborhood they are in is on the lower end

I am from Vancouver Canada and was in the area for business. Checked out this place and was totally disappointed. Looks like the very previous review has been written by someone known to the owners. The Samosas that have been praised were really really bad. It is all about filling. That kind of filling is used for Aaloo Tikki and never for samosas. I bet if you ordered Aaloo parantha, you would get the same filling.
Besides a couple of their entrees, I also picked up their home made namkeens. Boy they smelled. It seems like they used oil that was burnt. Two packs @4.99/lb, what a waste. I know North Indian food (from Canada) and this place wouldn't be in the top 100 out there, let alone top 10.
Also worth mentioning is that when i was there, a couple walked in and were standing behind me waiting for their turn. The person at the counter didnt even acknowledge their presence from the moment they walked in. She took my order and simply walked inside the kitchen. They guys felt bad and just walked out. So much so for courtsey. I could also see used utensils that were served to someone in there were still lying on the table.
One of the reviews rightly says, that you have to know them to be served well. Food is nothing great there. Ignorance is bliss so if you dont know about North Indian a.k.a Panjabi food, take your chance. If you know your food, seek another restaurant serving Indian cuisine. The food here is definitely not worth the price.

Pros: Freshly made (not sure about the ingredients)

Cons: Expensive, Food below average

Just to let you know, my family and I have been regulars here since 2003. We usually dine at Punjab Sweets almost twice a month from Tacoma, and always enjoy the food and service. The owners have known us for years now and treat us like family and never fail to greet us with smiles and give my little daughter a free dessert when we go there. We love this place not only because it serves real food, but because the prices are reasonable (most expensive dish is $8), we enjoy the warm atmosphere (they recently just remodeled and it looks great), and most of all everything just tastes excellent. My wife loves the parothas, while I go for the channa bhattoora and samosay! I would agree that they do take quite a bit of time preparing everything, but I think if the taste wasn't worth the wait we would have stopped commuting from Tacoma all these years. Quite honestly, though this is probably their biggest complaint. We know the routine, so we just take things to occupy the kids with until the food is ready.
I would definitely recommend you try this family place. You won't be disappointed!

Cons: Take time to serve the food

I travel for a living and after landing in Seattle was looking for good North Indian food. Being a Punjabi (from Muktsar) i read the reviews and decided that this looked like the place to be
I visited this place quite a few times trying different entrees and snacks like Samosa, Ticki, Saag with Makki roti, Malai kofta, chana bhatura, Karhi and few other.
Samosas at $1.99 a piece (with chutney alone) were below par. The filling in them was exactly what the aloo tickis were made of. When eating both we (me & my wife) could not decide if we were eating a samosa or a aloo ticki.
The much anticipated Makki roti with Saag was a big letdown. The Saag neither had the the taste nor the color (deep green) of saag (green mustard) at all. Looks like they used spinach or something else. Karhi was avg as well.
The malai koftas on one occasion were cold while the curry was hot. Seems like the curry was made fresh but the kofta (dumpling) was prepared and warmed up and put in the curry. Also they make Roti's on the tawa. No Tandoor at this place.
Chana Bhatura were ok but chana tasted different on different occasions. No consistency in taste or flavor. I also purchased their home made snacks. All i will say is stick to the Haldiram snacks.
The wait can be anywhere from 15 to 25 minutes. A lot of times i saw that the tables were never cleaned up and utensils from the previous guests were still lying on the tables.

Personally for me, seeking true Punjabi food, it was a big letdown.
Did i forgot to mention that this place is not cheap Also the quantity served does not match the price when compared to most of the other places.
If you dont know much about North Indian & especially Punjabi food then it is probably ok but if you are seeking true North Indian cuisine then try it but do not raise your expectations
A place for vegetarians only, they also carry an assortment of north indian sweets whichare fresh and delecious. so if you have a sweet tooth, do try the sweets.

Just dined here last night, and the food was great! This was my first time visiting the place and I had alot of expectations since my Indian friends at work had highly recommened I come here. The first impression I got when I walked in was that it was very inviting and the decor was really different..in a good way though. The food took some time to come out after I ordered, but I was warned about this earlier so I wasn't surprised. I am told the items are made fresh, so it takes a bit to prepare the dishes. Anyways, I had the sampler, eggplant dish, and the aloo gobi. Everything had such flavor and the taste was definitely fresh and very filling. I am not much of a food critic, but I wanted to let others know what a great experience I had here. The service was very warm and friendly, the prices were very reasonable (not sure what the previous reviewer here was thinking. I had an appetizer and two complete entrees for under $20!!), the spice level was a bit more than my wife is used to but nonetheless she still enjoyed it. Would most definitely recommend this place to everyone...

I found this restaurant here when I was looking for a new spot for lunch. I was very pleased with the results. I am not very familiar with Indian food, so unfortunately I don't have anything to compare it to. The first thing I noticed was the display cases full of desserts (which I hate to admit I did not try). It took me a moment to see the regular menu on the wall above the counter. When I said I didn't know what to order she recommended the first item on their menu, which was a bowl of chickpeas (garbanzo beans) in a spicy broth served with two flat fry-breads (the breads were similar to what you can find at roadside stands in the American Southwest). The dish was so wonderful and flavorful I couldn't believe it was vegetarian! Before I left I ordered two of the appetizer samplers to take home and try with my fiance. All were deep fried, but they were all very good: potato and peas wrapped in a "tortilla", spicy potato pancake, cheese and chutney, and potato and veggie dumplings. You can order singles of these for a quick, reasonably priced snack. Everything was fantastic! To drink I ordered something like a mango "smoothie", which was thick and tasty. They did not appear to have soda or other more familiar drinks. Seating was set up almost entirely as two-person tables, but they did have a couple of tables pushed together for a slightly larger group. This is not a place to expect easy seating for more than four people together. I grabbed a menu on my way out so I can order lunch for takeout, which I guarantee I will be doing often. If you are a meat-eater (as I am), don't let the vegetarian label fool you into thinking it will be tasteless. Give it a try!

This place is hidden on 104th Ave in Kent, and had I not read the reviews on here before venturing out, I probably would never had gone there. The other reviews on here discuss "cheesy decor" but apparently I either have very different taste in decor, or the owners have since redone it because I did not find it cheesy at all. Sparse perhaps, but not cheesy or over done. The restaurant was clean, and my family and I were greeted by a lovely young lady who was quick to recommend these forgein foods to me, my husband and 3 year old daughter. We ended up ordering way too much food, but we were able to try a bit of everything on the menu, and we liked everything. I have little experience with the Indian fare, and to have someone who was able to provide such great advice on what to order was wonderful. The food is made fresh daily, and is fairly reasonable. We took plently of left overs home. I highly recommend this establishment; journey out to Kent to eat here. It will be well worth your time. We will be going back sooner than later.

Ok, so I finally made my trip here and the food was just incredible! I have some neighbors that are Indian and I have tried their food, and this stuff tasted just like my neighbor cooks it. Amazing!!! The portions were just right, the plates were really interesting (the food was served in authentic steel dishes), the taste was fantastic and bursting with flavor, and the people were friendly. I do have to admit the decor was a bit cheesy, and the look is not the normal place I look to dine out. However, not to take away from the food, the huge selection of sweets and food was really worth the trip. I would suggest that people come with an open mind and look past the decor. The prices and flavor definitely make up for it. My wife and I had appetizers, entrees, drinks, and dessert for under $30. You can't beat an authentic Indian meal for that price. The best part is that this place DOESN'T have a lunch buffet, which is a huge plus with me. I hate going to 90% of the Indian restaurants and eating stale food in the buffets. I prefer fresh food made to order, so this was the right pick. All in all it was a great experience and I will be back.

The prices and flavor definitely make up for it. My wife and I had appetizers, entrees, drinks, and dessert for under $30. You can't beat an authentic Indian meal for that price. The best part is that this place DOESN'T have a lunch buffet, which is a huge plus with me. I hate going to 90% of the Indian restaurants and eating stale food in the buffets. I prefer fresh food made to order, so this was the right pick. All in all it was a great experience and I will be back.

Pros: taste, quality, family place

Cons: decor, hours of operation

I recently had a party at my office, and one of my coworkers had brought in some dessert from this place. It was a huge success at the party and everyone was raving about the colorful desserts! I decided to try this place out and see what else they had. I was so impressed the minute I walked in the door by the two display cases full of various desserts and another one full of salted items. I talked to the girl in the front and she was telling me how everything was made from scratch. In addition to the desserts, there was also a good selection of entrees and appetizers to choose from. I have to say the decor is definitely not there, but the focus is on the foods and dessert. Everything was so delicious and made just right (it was really spicy....!!!). Definitely, definitely make the trek out to Kent for this place because you won't be disappointed. Best part is that the owners told me they were going to begin lunch box deliveries soon, so I will order some boxes for our next office meeting too...

Pros: prices, quality, taste

We loved the Indian sweets sold in this shop. They taste better than anything I have tasted in Vancouver, BC (there are tons of sweets stores up there). We are so glad we came across this place last week! The place isn't cozy or inviting, but somehow the food and the employees make up for the lack of environment. The prices are extremely affordable for the quality of food we got, and we were surprised at the portions we received as well. We highly recommend this place to anyone looking for really authentic Indian food and from experience can say that most of the fancy places around Seattle don't even compare in taste!

Pros: sweets and food are really good, prices are so low

Cons: have to wait for food to be prepared, they close early

We recently headed down to Kent to try the food after we saw the Seattle Weekly cover awhile back. We were excited to try the sweets and the food, so we ordered the sampler, palak paneer, daal, and the mango shake. The food was absolutely delicious and we could taste that it was prepared fresh in the back. I am not a big fan of plain yogurt, however, the bowl that was included with the meal was very sweet and I actually finished half the bowl!
The sweets (I don't remember the names!) were very colorful and pleasing to the eye, and it was difficult to choose which to try and box for home. However, the owner was very patient and helpful in suggesting the items to choose. We liked the juicy donut holes the best!!! They were so fresh and tasty, we actually took home several boxes for some of our friends in Seattle.
We will definitely be visiting soon.

Pros: Excellent homestyle food, fresh ingredients, cozy

Cons: the drive to Kent..?

I haven't ever tried Indian sweets before, however one of my coworkers brought in this absolutely delicious dessert from this place in Kent! I decided to go out and try some of the items, and needless to say they were just eye catching. I liked the milk desserts the best, however, there was such a huge selection to choose from that I definitely need to make a few more trips. The best part was that the owners told me they make everything from scratch in the kitchen, and I could taste how fresh it was too!

I have traveled extensively across the US and tried many upscale Indian restaurants as well as small family diners. Until recently, I thought that the best Indian food I had was up in Vancouver, but Punjab Sweets quickly proved that notion wrong. I tried the mulai kofta, palak paneer and some of the appetizers. The food was incredible! You could taste the fresh ingredients used in each dish, as well as the spice level was perfect. Although, I might have preferred a bit less spicy, although it didn't seem to interfere with the taste. I will mention that this is a vegetarian place, so this may scare off some. But please go and try it... it is definitely worth the drive down to the South End!

I came to visit some of my friends recently in the Seattle area, and they took me to Punjab Sweets. Honestly, my first reaction was where did they take me? The interior was very plain and unlike most places I frequent in the Bay Area. After I sampled some of the food and the sweets, I understood exactly why my friends were hooked to this place. Its like homemade food, just like how Indian food SHOULD taste. The sweets tasted so good....the gulab jamun is better than anything I have had in all of the Bay Area as well as back home in India! The jalebi was really good too. We got lucky because we got there just as hot jalebis were being cooked in the back. Next time I come up to the Seattle area, I will definitely be back here!

Just thought I would mention that I recently visited Punjab Sweets and found the food to be just awesome. It had the right amount of spices, quantity, and most of all prepared as if it were homemade! You might have to wait on the weekends, since it is very crowded so I have been told the weekdays are much quieter.

Its great to see Punjab Sweets finally getting some recognition. I have been a devoted customer since they first opened in 2001, and throughout these years the food has been very consistent. This place is for people really looking to find quality food at bargain prices. Besides the wonderfully prepared entrees, the sweets are the biggest attraction here. There is an assortment of fresh and colorful sweets to choose from. Try going on a day when they have just made hot jalebis with some chai! You almost forget you are in Seattle and not Bombay.
