Description: Established in 1959 by Trilok Singh Gandhi and his brothers, The Great Punjab is one of the oldest restaurants in Mumbai. Mr. T.S. Gandhi is a pioneer in the hospitality business and was on the executive committee of the Federation of Hotel and Resaturant (FHRI), member of National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI) and the Maharashtra Association of Hotel and Restaurant.The restaurant has been boasting visits from the film fraternity and the political circles alike. Known for its succulent kebabs, 'pilli' dal and for its homely feel the restaurant was a popular destination for all.T.S. Gandhi's two sons have continued with the family business. The foremost Great Punjab in Dadar, managed by Manninder Singh Gandhi (the elder son), continues to serve some of the old delicacies but keeping with the times has added a host of dishes like the pepper chicken to its delectable menu.The younger of the brothers, Arvinder Singh Gandhi, has started another restaurant under the same name in Powai targeting the younger crowd working in the city's upcoming corporate hub.The baton will soon pass to Dhruveer, son of Manninder Singh Gandhi. Having successfully completed his Hospitality Management studies in Switzerland, he is pursuing his studies in the acclaimed International College of Hotel Management in Australia. Carrying forward the family legacy and his grandfather's wishes, Dhruveer wants to open additional outlets of the restaurant that keep up with the ever changing palates of the Mumbaikars!

For starters the reshmi kebab and rawas tikka are best with a glass... More

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

This is a place which has been there forever. My earliest memories goes back to the days when Dadar, was referred to as Dadar TT. This was one of the best places despite having several other famous restaurant's closeby, the food quality was top notch. My personal preferences would be Chicken Hariyali, Butter Nan, Dal Tadka, they make it rich,... More

Love their desi chicken. It is a must try. The delivery can be a bit slow at times like Friday evening but can't go wrong with the taste.

I went to this restaurant after a long gap. I had always loved this hotel for the taste and quick service. This time it disappointed me on both fronts. The dish (vegetable lahori or something) ordered was tasteless and gravy very thin. It flowed on the plate. The waiters were mindless of the guests and we had to request for... More

I went there with a group of 40 people. They served us buffet. Great food. Most of us are from Germany, so they didn't make the food very spicy. I like the fish most.
