I live in downtown Springfield, but had never been to Panjabi Tadka. Came here tonight with a friend who raved about it. And he was so right. We both had the Chicken Tikka Masala. It was amazing. We ordered it on the mild side, and it was mild and very flavorful. It came with rice which was also very tasty... More

I have been on an unofficial boycott of Indian restaurants as I feel the price of meals are inflated above the value of the food. However, my cravings took over and I ordered take out from Panjabi. The food is served in good portions and had good to excellent flavor. Ordered veggie samosa, curry chicken, saag paneer, bindi masala, and... More

Went for lunch with a friend and had the Vegetable Korma🍅🌽🌶 (9 vegetable)🍲 lunch special. Comes with pompadom and with my cup of tea (or 2 or 3) was still only $10.00. One of the best tasting Indian Restaurants in Western MA ☺ Highly recommend, lunch is 11:30 to 3, but get there by 2:30. Reopens at 5 pm for... More

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
