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!

We really enjoy the variety of food.The place is well maintained but the food was average for the price charged.Their signature chutney along with peanuts and papads is too good.Chicken gol gappas are a must try along with fish kurkure !!

We family members had our lunch at this restaurant A mid sized restaurant and a bar on the rear side of the hotel. The ambiance is nice..They provide Mogul, chinese, north indian and jain food. I tried north indian non veg dishes. All are cooked and served in 15 to 20 mints time. A great value for money.

This is where my colleagues always know to take me on my first day in Mumbai. Not much to be said for the ambiance and I think the goal is to turn out pretty standard northern Indian fare, I have to say this place haunts me months after I've returned to the States. Every dish I have had there is... More

Nice ambience, great location, excellent service with some great staff and a simple menu is what makes this place stand out. If you are looking to take your family out for some simple North Indian food at a quiet place, this is the place to go. The menu is staightforward & simple - veggies lovers can order a paneer dish...

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
