Thank you for reviewing Punjabi Kitchen. Your comments are very encouraging. Unlike major cities, Mossel Bay is a developing holiday resort and gets busy only from the last week of November to the end of the first week of January. Rest of the time it is very quiet. We keep busy all year with the groups of tourist that are... More

We visited Punjabi Kitchen after days on road. My husband and 2 year old were craving Indian food and after a short research on Tripadvisor we landed here. They were extremely homely and took care of us like family. If you re visiting Mossel Bay you must try Punjabi Kitchen.

I really like Indian food and only found the Punjabi kitchen yesterday. Although the menu is much smaller than one finds in the UK the food was very tasty and reasonable value. A spotlessly clean restaurant and being sited in a small Mall you can wander around while the your food is freshly prepared. Staff very friendly shame about the... More

Thank you for taking time off to give your feedback on Punjabi Kitchen. We are glad you enjoyed the food and look forward to seeing you more often. Unlike England where Indian food has taken over from fish and chips, Mossel Bay is just being introduced to Punjabi cuisine and we are sure in a few years we shall be... More

Thank you for your kind words. Bearing in mind that Mossel Bay is only a small town in South Africa and there are only 8 Indian families, no supplier wants to invest in stocking spices and specialist equipment for such a small group. Despite such constraints, we strive to provide most authentic North Indian cuisine and reviews like yours help... More

We had a superb meal in a spotlessly clean restaurant. The staff and the owners in particular were so very friendly and the meal was the best we had during our stay in Mossel Bay. It might not have great views but it is a restaurant not to be missed.

We are sorry you are disappointed. We are not a sandwich bar but an Indian restaurant. I have no doubt if you had ordered Indian food you would not be writing this review. More

Description
Punjabi Kitchen offers a unique dining experience serving innovative North Indian cuisine. It is an elegant restaurant situated in the heart of Mossel Bay CBD, in Eden Plaza which is neither a shopping mall nor a flee market but houses a fully licensed Bar. a convenience store, coffee shop, jewelry shop, greeting card & Gift shop, African Craft, Scarf, Toys, Games and leather hand bag shops to cater for the needs of the local people and tourists. There is also a well equipped cigarette kiosk. A family friendly restaurant, Punjabi Kitchen also has a Take-Away Department and offers a fantastic variety of spicy foods and real Indian food freshly prepared by our chefs on site, at affordable prices. For those who would prefer something different, fish curry and pizza are available at request. Restaurant and Take away service is available 9.00 a.m. to 9.00 P.M. Monday to Saturday with last orders at 8.00 p.m. During the low season we close on Sundays and Public Holidays. Plaza Lounge Bar, which is part of Punjabi Kitchen, stocks extensive range of medium to high quality wines, beers and spirits. To maintain the high standard of our bar stock, we impose a R50 corkage per bottle to discourage people bringing their own liquor.
