Only name! Bad Food!
Wanted to try out this place from a long time. Finally, made plans and booked my table through hungrytable.in. The ambiance of the place are good. The place has a nice feel to it. The food although is the opposite of what I heard. Being awarded the best for north indian food many a times, this place serves no north indian food. I am a north indian, and I know my food. We ordered the famous lassi, which was nothing extraordinary, Although it was good, it was highly overpriced. For the main course, we tried the Amritsari Malai Kofta and an assorted bread basket. The kofta was bland, and my whole appetite was gone with a bite of it. With no proper spices, the koftas tasted bad (read : very very very very bad). The assorted bread platter had rotis and naans mix without a hint of butter on it. Have you ever been served bread without butter in an assorted bread basket. Even a small restaurant serve a better assorted bread basket. One of the most disappointing meals i have ever had. Would not go to this place again unless I wish to kill my appetite.
If you are looking for some heavy Punjabi food then this is the place for you. The food is amazing and you will love the starters. The chicken is really soft and any chicken dish is a must try. The paan shot given at the end as freshener is the best conclusion to the food we ever had. Worth a try.
Review of the Anniversary Celebrations
Was a part of their Anniversary celebrations on the 17th and hence had the opportunity to taste their Pancho crusted pakoras (super delicious), Sesame paneer tikka, Kakori kebab (delicate), Chicken Minced Cigar roll (mind blowing), Chingri Prawn kebab, Parmesan Tokri chaat (yummm) and lots more.
The Badami Murg Shorba was disappointing. But the Lassi was made for the Gods. The taste of the Chicken Dum Biryani and Lassi lingers even after 2 days. The Meat Punjab Grill was cooked to perfection and had a unique taste of thyme. The Paneer Lababdaar is a vegetarian's delight. Naan could have been softer but the taste of garlic was perfect. The Gulab Jamun trio hardly had any filling and the lychee ki tehri was tasty but the taste of lychee was missing. Paan shots - a novel concept and totally refreshing.
The food is a bit expensive but definitely worth a try. They have the Hopps menu which shud be a must try.!
Not suitable for Mass gathering
didn't like this place. Had team party of 18 members, they were not able to serve.
only 1 person serving 18 people. Service was poor, they changed menu themselves from what we fixed with them one day before. Not worth for price (960 for non veg & 840 for Veg) as choice are very less. Would suggest for Barbecue nation or any other place rather than Punjab grill .
The best Dal Makhani in Pune
the pan shots are the best thing at Punjab Grill but the other dishes too are worth raving about like for instant the dal makhani here is fantastic best had with their Khasta roti which has a nice flavor of fennel seeds in it. Though at Punjab grill, you will find more of lucknowi or moghal food but its still definitely worth visiting...again and again!
my tummy goes mmm...
Oye hoye..Punjab grill tah jawaab nahi !! My second Chefs table experience was awesome; from the char grilled jumbo prawn to apple phirni, my tummy went mmmm. To finish the entire course was a herculean task as it required a typical Punjabi appetite.
While the star of the entire menu was the guchhi kabab ( kasmiri mushrooms) which was a Kashmiri inspired appetiser with a heavy mughlai filling of cashews. The Punjab grill dal which comprised of true Punjabi flavour with a little dash of fenugreek could manage to tease my pallet though I was completely full after having the appetisers.
All is well when it ends well, especially after having the phirni with an apple twist.
