Stay away from this dive .
You can't even call it a curry .
A few over boiled pieces of chicken chunks in a pre prepared ghastly sauce .
Never , ever again .
Stay away !

I am a big fan of Bunny chows and have tried many around KZN. I recently ordered a Mutton bunny from Punjabi's and was taken aback at how tasty it was. It was really one of the best I have had. Plenty meat, lots of gravy and really tasty. I decided to order another one and I was so disappointed. It was mostly bread and very dry with virtually no gravy. There was only 3 little pieces of meat and a huge potato. The inside hadn't even been hollowed out properly and the whole bunny was mostly bread. Very sad to see such extremes.

Late afternoon meal - about 4 p.m. so my wife and I were the only ones there. We ordered a Lamb Rogan Josh (Medium) and a Lamb Vindaloo (hot) plus a yoghurt side dish and garlic maan. Al were served promptly and were delicious as per our order - also very generous helpings.

Will definitely be back and try out other meals on their quite extensive menu.

We often use Punjabis when we are at a loss for what to cook on a Friday night.
Punjabis certainly looks after our culinary tastes.
We can recommend the Butter Chicken Curry. best in town

The chicken tikka was very good the first 2 times with fresh chips and sauce. Was divine. When we purchased the same order the 3rd and fourth time the quality deteriorated. The chicken was not cooked properly and they forgot the sauce . Did not go back ,since then unfortunately.
