If you are looking for North food in West India

Located between Lane 5 and 6 is a great place for lunch or dinner if you are looking for north/pujabi food in Western India, read Pune. Booking a table for dinner helps, specially weekends , else can be a long wait outside.

I went there for celebrating my birthday. We booked the table earlier in the day and told them about the event. They decorated the place very nicely and provided us discount. You can find best non-veg starters of chicken here. Nice attire and service. Overall great experience in The great Punjab, Koregaon park and Baner road.

I went to this place thinking that I would be getting authentic punjabi food.. The way of preparation is the same but the taste is far from the original cuisine.. I would get better food at a normal north indian restaurant.. They have modified their taste to cater to the foreign tourists more than the locals as the spice factor... More

Visited this restaurant for authentic punjabi food. It was not disappointing at all. I relished the starters and they had a variety of them. The main course was also good but nothing outstanding. Food is on the expensive side. Bar is avble. Valet parking is avble.

Went here with a group of 13 british people. 5 of whom were drinking vodka. They didn't specify which vodka when they ordered, so The 'Great' Punjab decided for them - the most expensive vodka they could get their hands on. Or at least that's what it looked like when the bill came. The food was definitely not worth the... More

If you are craving for good Punjabi food, this place won't disappoint you. Try the Kadak Rumali. Portion size is a little too big for 2, but its worth a try. We have been visiting the restaurant for the last 4 years. Kudos to the restaurant management for preserving the taste of their dishes and maintaining the quality at the... More

A wonderful meal and fabulous service. This place was recommended by a local as a great place to eat - and he wasn't wrong. Fantastic service - prompt and friendly. But the food is the star here! We had the Chicken platter to start and then two types of biryani - chicken and mutton. Washed down by cold Kingfisher! Great!!
