The food served at this place is simply delicious. Portion sizes are generous. The menu offers good variety. Ambience could be better. The staff is very hospitable and courteous.

We went to Punjab on Wednesday night and were disappointed. We have eaten there before and had a great meal. The 3 Rogan Gosht were flavorful and enjoyed. They were R140 each. I had the Kadhai prawn which had possibly 3 of the tiniest prawns...More

If you like Indian food, this is the place to be. Their food reached all expectations. Staff are very friendly and the service is very fast.

This family Deli is an authentic Indian restaurant that caters for Vegans, Vegetarians, banting diet, and meat eaters, mild, medium and super spicy hot. Food is always of a high quality, portions large and they also do take aways and deliveries.
