Amazing food

We had dinner at this place sitting outside. We had lamb curry, paneer ; dal , nan and rotis. The food was fresh and very tasty and not at all oily. It was just great food.

My friends and I went for dinner. The quality of food was not as great as people described and for vegetarian there weren't a lot of options. Most of the items in the menu were not available. The chicken was good (My friends told me that) and was worth a try. If u really want to try do so but... More

It is an era of Marketing and the hype created pulls you towards certain things. The same was my case with Pal Dhaba. Having heard a lot about it,I thought of paying a visit with my family for a Sunday Lunch. Honestly speaking it is over hyped. Falls short of your expectations in every way. There is not adequate seating... More

Visiting CHD is never complete unless PAL Dhaba's delicious Punjabi food doe not reaches your stomach! if there was a word beyond delicious, would have titled Pal's preperations by that name! Whether veg or non veg, the food just keeps you engrossed with its flavors, spices & aroma ! for family there are special sitting arrangements. Anytime near Chandigarh, missing... More

This was my second visit, prompted by a guest being a die-hard Abhishek Bachhan fan, who had reportedly eaten here sometime ago and posted it on his fb. So, had to accompany my guest, if for nothing so that he could take a selfie outside the dhaba and post it on HIS fb too. In my last visit about 1... More

It's about as local and authentic as you can get. Great vibe just sitting outside. Very fresh tasting food. These same dishes at other restaurants would leave you feeling heavy (Punjabi food not known for being lite!). But here we felt great both during and the next morning - testimony to freshness and quality of ingredients. Loved our visit.

Local people informed us which was the original Pal Dhaba. So we entered here for our mid day lunch. But... More

If you are in Chandigarh should have food in pal dhaba. Best of veg & non veg dishes are available here. I had most tender chicken of my life here. All the cuisine is of traditional Punjabi taste .
