Very authentic!

My wife and I visited this wonderful place for the first time the other day. Wow!! We have lived in California near a lot of Punjab Indians and this place has the same delicious and authentic food that we've enjoyed out there. Nice work!!

We visit once a month. Its always delicious, excellent prices, and servers fill up your water constantly (which is needed eating spicy food). A family member spent some time in India in the military and said it was the most authentic tasting he'd had in 30 yrs since being state side.

This restaurant has a sticker on its front door which states that it has earned a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence. This may be true for the food, but their service can be lacking. Recommend ordering pick up

We ordered takeout here. Shrimpcurry chicken tandoori eggplant and Naan. We asked for everything medium spicy. In my opinion it was very spicy. I wish I had some yogurt to balance it but the quality was great and it was not at all greasy.

Brunswick is blessed to have so many good restaurants of different cuisines within walking distance of each other and Shere Punjab rates among the very best. Their sauces and curries are second to none, full of flavor and fragrant spices, and prepared to your desired level of heat. The naans are wonderful as well; the Punjabi naan could qualify as...

Delicious Indian food. Very popular so make reservation. I loved the naan. Extensive menu. Appreciated by Bowdoin parents. Our son loved it though he has not eaten much Indian food prior to this meal.

We've been to Shere Punjab twice in the last few months. The first time we were amazed and we went back tonight to see if maybe we were crazy. We weren't crazy---this has now become one of our favorite restaurants ever and it is well worth the 1.5 hour drive! The food is simply wonderful, the spicing incredible, the presentation... More

I’ve gone to Bombay Mahal down the street several times, but wanted to see what the other Indian restaurant in town was like. I ordered the Murgh Methi and Pudena Paratha, two items I had not seen on the Bombay Mahal menu before. Food tasted like it was lacking basic spices and didn’t appeal to me. Atmosphere was bland and... More

Not much to look at, but very friendly service; fabulous, melt-in-your-mouth food, with giant naan breads; and even a great indian wine!
