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.

Five Stars for the best lamb curry and first time ever eating a whole wheat roti, which was amazing. Even ordered samosas as takeaway.

Thank you for the glorious review on Punjabi Kitchen. I read your review on Google wherein you went further to state, "Honestly, the best lamb curry anywhere in South Africa." As someone who travels a lot, these words mean a lot to us and the staff really appreciated your comments. We shall look forward to your next visit in December.

This is a fantastic venue for family visits or functions but the draw card is the food. Freshly prepared with all the tastes you normally think of when wanting Indian.
Highly recommended.

Thank you very much for your very kind comments. Fish needs special care when cook to avoid it breaking or allowing spices to over power its natural flavors. That is why our fiish curry and ostrich curry are becoming very popular. We strive to maintain our standards at all times.

We were on holiday in SA and had some time to spare in Mosselbai to find a snack lunch and came across this place - and were really pleased we did so. We ate in the cafe area, not the restaurant (although both were offered) and had really tasty samosas, and parathas. We were lucky enough to meet the owners who were seated on the next table and had a lovely conversation with them - very kind helpful people - we were sad we were only passing by and not staying locally but we will definitely return when back in the area. Thank you for a lovely lunch and we will definitely recommend.

We had reached the restaurant on a quiet night and thought unlikely to be able to get a meal since the hole place looked deserted. However, once we exchanged greetings with the proprietor, we got a hearty meal of our choice washed down with excellent house wine at a very reasonable price. I should add that once the owner realised that we were longing for an Indian meal, he even called his wife from home and she prepared the meal herself and even offered to supply additional items for our journey next day. A wonderful experience. Thank you Punjabi Kitchen.

Thank you very much for your kind words and for sharing your experience with readers of Trip Advisor reviews. As explained, I am 76 and both my wife and I had retired. We inherited a take-away business due to the owner's inability to continue. We developed the business into a restaurant and run the business to earn a decent living not just to make money. It gives us, retired people, great pleasure to be able to interact with travelers, to give them the opportunity to taste authentic North Indian cuisine and to take away unique memories of their visit to Mossel Bay. We are delighted that enjoyed our food and service.
