Found this place for lunch after a tour we did and we're glad we did. The staff was friendly, and the food was excellent. Wish there were more people experiencing it with us as it felt quiet. Definitely a hidden gem!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.
