Excellent curries and good service. Also a good Sunday Lunch offering traditional roasts or curries, so if one person wants curry and the other person wants roast beef you are both catered for.

Located near the Celebrity Hotel at Lapta, the Pubjab is hidden from the road behind a row of beautiful Palm trees. Turn in at the Punjab sign and there is ample room for parking. The Restaurant is a modern glass fronted building with a large terrace at the front which can accommodate 80 people for dining outside throughout the summer months. Up to 70 diners can be seated inside where it is very light and airy due to the complete front of the restaurant being a glass wall. This wall can be folded completely back, for those evening when you cannot quite decide 'in or out'. The Punjab was opened in May 2009 by Riaz and his brothers who have been in the restaurant business in Northern Cyprus for over 15 years. Riaz and his team will offer you a delicious range of Indian dishes and large range of European food, to cater for all tastes, they also have a children's menu. The Punjab specialises in Indian cuisine and their Tandoori dishes are outstanding. There are three fully trained chefs, one for each type of dish, all of whom are experts in field. So whether you choose Indian, Tandoori or European you are assured top quality food. Special Events - Sunday Roast On a Sunday you can enjoy a full 'Sunday Roast' with all the usual accompaniments. This is very popular, therefore it is better to book a table to avoid disappointment. This is offered through the day at a very competitive price for two courses, so you may choose a starter then a Main Course, there is a choice of Beef, Lamb or Chicken, or you may prefer to have a dessert for a 'sweeter ending'. Dance Night Throughout the summer, on at least one night week, you can enjoy live music and dance the night away, after you have dined. Another very popular event.
