You wouldn't expect a small basically decorated restuarant to produce the quality of food that they do. Everything is very fresh and extremely tasty. They only serve soft drinks which we didn't know when we booked. We asked if we could bring beer and wine and they are happy for you to do that. We will definitely eat there again.

This is an unusual little restaurant in the Oxford Center in Hillcrest. It is run by an Indian family from India. Service is a little slow and the waiter is not always easy to understand. If you are prepared to take things slowly, the food is well worth waiting for and it is very tasty, freshly prepared and there is plenty of it. Food is very moderately priced. We will visit this quaint little place again

We had an excellent meal. Samoosas were delicious, 2 varieties. Our main dishes were all tasty and everyone at our table enjoyed them. The service was spot on. Take your own wine. Will definitely be returning.

Punjabi's is capable of being delightful , but also dreary.

I have visited this restaurant several times and each time is a new experience.

The food is very inconsistent and unpredictable.

I have ordered the same dish three times and every time it is vastly different.

The food in general is rather good, albeit inconsistent, but the service can definitely be improved. I find the waiters and cashiers to be sluggish and at times uncomprehending.

The menu itself is vast, leaving you spoilt for choice.
