They repeatedly kept offering more food, just like a perfect host would do. Typical Punjabi style... Do try the chicken gol guppas, truly unique. The... More

Nice place and very good Punjabi food. Honestly, I didn't expect such a good place for Punjabi food in Dadar. I was pleasantly pleased. We ordered a chicken tikka as starter, biryani, spicy mutton and mutton bhuna! Roti extra ofcourse. It's well decorated and a family place ,though, you do get alcohol. Coming to the food... it was good. Period.... More

The Great Punjab Restaurant and Bar is one of the good places to eat Punjabi food. I personally prefer the authentic Punjabi food and you should try Chicken Tandoori and Chicken Seekh Kebab. For main course you should try Chicken Patiala or Chicken Makhanwala with butter rotis. You can try Dal along with rotis. For tandoori item other than chicken... More

Great Punjab restaurant is located at one of the busiest shopping districts of Mumbai, Linking Road, Bandra. Whether you go there for lunch, after a marathon shopping spree or for dinner to celebrate an occasion, you will leave extremely satisfied with the service and quality of food.

If you're sick of the over sweet, artificially coloured and bad versions of real punjabi food then this is the place for you. The gol guppa is absolutely divine and a speciality only available at this restaurant. The kakori kebabs are another must try, as is the lasooni paneer and bullet naan for those of you who love spicy food.... More
