We were looking for Indian food near our hotel and found this little place. To be honest it dos not look like much from outside,but push yourself in. It is small but warm and staff were inviting. We chose a selection of items for the table and it was all flavorful and filling. Great find.

I am a little embarrassed that it has taken us so long to give them a try. We used to be regular customers of the prior Indian restaurant at this address, Sitar. This version is as good or better than before! We were two couples for dinner tonight. Three of us know and love Indian food, but one member of... More

A hidden gem in downtown Springfield! This restaurant serves Northern Indian cuisine, and they do it quite well. We had the Chicken Tikka and Lamb Curry with garlic Naan, all excellent. We also tried the appetizer special that was tiny little potato cakes with a chick pea and tomato curry that was also out of this world. We come here... More

Panjabi Tadka never fails to please with consistently excellent food and friendly staff. The Malai Kofta is my very favorite dish and I've never had better anywhere else. The Chaat Papri is another favorite. Always a disappointment elsewhere by comparison. My husband loves the lamb boti kabob masala. Try the Shahi naan too.

Little place on the outskirts of downtown. Quick service and vary tasty food. I had the chicken curry and lentil soup which was great. Being from Glasgow, curry is pretty much our national dish and I always search out an Indian when I'm on my travels. This one didn't disappoint!

I usually eat here at lunch. The lunch menu is a bit limited, but you can order off the dinner menu if you like. I have had 3 or 4 of the items on the lunch menu and enjoyed them all. I have had better Indian food but not in this area. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant... More

Having returned to the New England area, I desired East Indian Cuisine for my birthday dinner with the family. Looking for what used to be at this location, we were hopeful that it would not disappoint. It did not disappoint! Great food with a traditional East Indian atmosphere, this choice was worthwhile. Even though there was not a "children s... More

Visited for lunch today and was favorably impressed. From the vegetable samosas through the chicken tikka masala, virtually everything was excellent. My only quibble was that the paratha was a little flat in terms of flavor, but since it was usually covered in sauce that did not matter much. We'll definitely be back soon, and trying other dishes from their... More

Our favorite place to go, Panjabi offers great food, a nice atmosphere, and great service. The food arrives quickly, and those serving are efficient and kind. Water glasses are kept filled, which we have found to be unusual. We love going to Panjabi when we go out.
