Punjab continues to be my #1 pick for Indian food anywhere in and around the Boston area. I honestly don't know how to describe how amazingly delicious I think their food is. My boyfriend and I have eaten here numerous times and never, not

Pros: food

Cons: way the business is run

As a professionally trained chef and industry veteran, I can say right off that this place is one of the top Indian restaurants to come to the Metro Boston area in a very long time. Great curries, tandoor items, naan, biriyani, you name

Pros: Authentic Indian specialties and a Tandoor kitchen that offers a view to the diners.

Cons: Poor attitudes. Server and Host's attitudes need major readjusting. Could be better

I have tried all of the Indian food restaurants in the Boston area (Moody St., Waltham, Lexington, Cambridge, Boston, etc...) Punjab has the best tasting food! The Chicken Tika Masala is the BEST I've ever had. I brought my "Indian friend"

Went in on a Thursday evening and the restaurant was about 2/3 full - not sure if you need a reservation on the weekends or not. Beautiful ambiance. The drinks are great. Had the Chicken Tikka Masala (a true test of a good Indian

Pros: chicken tikka masala

Cons: Lamb byriani

coming from Delhi which specializes in tandoori dishes, we found the chicken tikka to be the worst we have had so far even by boston standards. It was dry and tasteless. The paneer dish we ordered tasted like it was reheated frozen food.

I love this place and have been going for years, since before the fire. I have tried others, even one closer to my house but I always come back.

Have eaten at Punjab frequently. Never had anything less than fabulous food. When you request hot, they make it hot! Generally I've had good service there, but that is relative to other Indian establishements. They do not think twice about
