I've ate at every Indian joint in the valley and Punjab is leaps and bounds better than anything out there. My favorite is the Chicken Tikka Masala and the Chicken Coconut Korma. If you haven't tried the Peshwari naan than you haven't

Pros: Great food, friendly service, best around

Cons: none

We get food from this place almost once a month. We always get 2-3 dishes and 2 naan's. We had to work up to their "spicy" and it was worth the wait. We find ourselves craving this food all the time. You can always get it to go if you hate the wait. But ALL GOOD FOOD is worth the wait. Seriously yum yum yum.... now I want me some.

Pros: Great Spicy Rich Food

Cons: long wait

I live surrounded by Indian restaurants in downtown Salt Lake but make the trip out to Sandy whenever I want Indian food. It's always same two guys and I have to wait awhile, but it is so-- worth the wait. NO SOUPY BLAND CURRIES SO HERE. PUNJAB'S SPICY IS SPICY, THE CURRIES THICK AND RICH, AND EVERYTHING ITEM HAS IT'S OWN FLAVOR. I highly recommend their tandoori chicken, paneer masala, and plain lassi. Great selection of vegetarian options as well.

Just a little restaurant with the same two guys everytime I go there. The food is great, but if they get busy, the wait can be a little while.

I've tried all the Indian Restaurants in the Salt Lake area. This one is my favorite hands down. Sometimes the service is not the fastest, but the food is always in top form and worth the wait. Their lunch buffet is also awesome.

I haven't eaten better Indian food anywhere. Not in New Jersey, not in CA. The food is brilliant. The service is polite and wonderful! The naans are to die for. I don't eat meat so I can't particularly comment on the murg and the gosht but the veggies are divine. The kulfi is sinfully yummy. I am impressed.
Also, when we went, they were playing some beautiful ghazals and my husband just curiously inquired about who the artist performing was. To our surprise, the guy helping with the service had burnt a CD with the music and handed it to us when we were paying for our dinner!
I have been vehemently recommending this place to everyone I know. You must go! You won't regret one bit!

Pros: The Wonderful food, the price

Cons: None I can think of

We love the food and go here more than anywhere other than Sushi Express. Given that most people that review Taste Of Punjab mention the very poor slow service, you'd think they'd fix it.

The food is still fantastic - the service is still just awful. We waited 90 minutes to eat last time. We had to ask repeatedly for water and the check. They aren't hostile or anything, just very bad at customer service.

Take your patience and enjoy the truly wonderful food.

Pros: Best Indian in town

Cons: Slow indifferent service

The food here is great, I luv the chickpea masala. The lunch buffets are good, and so are the mango lassies. However, we went for dinner and it took 10 minutes to get menus and 1.5 hours to get our food. While we were there, a family came in and sat down & their food was served within minutes. Turns out they had actually called their order ahead of time. I would definitely recommend the place, but you might want to bring a magazine or novel with if going for dinner.

We were very pleased with the food. The chicken vendaloo and nan were great and the "tripple fire" version of the chicken masala was the hottest thing I've ever eaten in a restaurant. I love it when you ask for really hot and it actually is really hot. It was breathtaking.

Sadly the service was terribly slow, no refills on water and a second beer (which we really needed) never came. It wasn't like the fellow was too busy, he just didn't seem to care.

We're going back tonight!

Pros: Great foods, as spicy as you want it to be

Cons: Poor service, a bit pricy for a strip mall Indian place

I am very familiar with Indian food. Taste of Punjab is wonderful, very authentic and the service is great. It is family operated and they do their best to serve you well. Their butter naam is delicious. Any dish for dinner is great. It is a restaurant to relax and enjoy all the aromas, not wonderful for small children even though I have been there with our two year old daughter many times and she loves it.

Pros: good food, authenticity, good service

Cons: a place for adults

On a hunch, we stopped by A Taste of Punjab. As the second group of guests (we came early), we were greeted and seated promptly. Appetizers and drinks came as expected, but when the main course came, we were delightfully surprised. We had coconut shrimp curry, the onion baji, and the naan. The waitstaff was delightful and the food was exquisite, and the cost was more than fair. We'll be back for more!

We were visiting in a large group of 9 for dinner. It took them an HOUR to get our appetizers and they got the wrong stuff. That took another 20 minutes to correct. Another HOUR of waiting got us our sub-par dinner. This place is a total mess. If the food had been half-way decent, the waits would have at least been slightly more tolerable. When we said we didn't want our entrees, since we'd waited so long, the waiter just didn't listen to us.

The food has been good mostly, but once the paneer dish was burnt and when I told them, they said "ok". I expected a much better service than that.

If you like authentic Indian food (not the bland Americanized version) this place is it. The lunch buffet is OK for sampling different dishes, but the curries at dinner are the real treat. I've tried the Vindaloo, coconut shrimp curry, and chicken curry...all superb. The garlic naan and samosas are also excellent.

This place is wonderful! Tantalizing aroma and the taste to back it up. The buffet is fresh and appetizing with many different dishes. For lunch you can get the buffet, naan, and a drink for $6. It is such a great value and sush good food. I highly recommend it!
