Disappointing....

i thought of having some nice north Indian food when i walked into restaurant. but the food was disappointing. though the roti and nan was good , the chicken recipes lacked the authentic north indian taste. but if trying north indian food for the first time..this is good....

Didn't like it. Was very bad with respect to food and the way people were serving. There was not enough space even to wash hands.

It's an below average hotel with great taste and cost equal to Star hotel. Normal menu like any other non-veg hotel, nothing special as Punjabi food.

u can have both veg and non-veg food items here. Food served here is delicious. The restaurant provides a good service. The waiter speaks both hindi and tamil. He is very smart, moves around quickly to take care of the customers. The food is served quickly.

Finger licking tasty food with Punjab flavor. Must try aloo parantha and any other north indian food. If you have got bored of south indian food, you will love this change.

This restaurant is hard to find as its above some shops, you get to it by walking up steps at the side of the shops. The usual plastic chairs place, but the food was good, I had a paneer curry with a nice thick sauce unlike southern indian gravy-like sauces. It seemed popular with locals, which is always a good...

Food was pathetic.The amount of money that you pay is not worth it. Apart from the name "Punjab Dhaba", nothing else here resembles a dhaba.

the food was great. the service was faster, despite there being only 1 waiter. However, the place is small and, like most restaurants in Kodai, not very clean.
