The nicest, friendliest, restaurant experience!

Food was excellent, and the music was classic to the culture. However, the workers at this restaurant and their serious attention to detail was amazing! We were welcomed right away and felt like a special part of their family from the minute we entered the restaurant. The place was spotless and... read more

Very good food with lots of variety of foods to choose from. Equally good for vegetarians and non-vegetarians. Spice level is neither too high or too low ... reminds me of Indian Dhabas

We were looking for the place to eat & saw this one. Haven't had high expectations but it turned out very well that we came back next day also to have our food here. Good value for money & tasty food

It was biting cold on a cold October night when we found this little place just by the side of the road. A smiling Punjabi greeted us in to warm, fresh-out-of-oven, yummy Punjabi food - we chose the buffet dinner & ate our stomachs fill. What struck us more was localities serving water by calling out "Paani Paani"!

We hit the Punjabi Hut for lunch after an exhausting morning, that also included a Maid of the Mist tour. We badly wanted Indian food, and were led by our noses into this restaurant by the delicious aroma that emanated in the streets while we were walking to our car. We had buffet as well as a-la-carte options. We chose... More

We had dinner at the Punjabi Hut during the Labor Day weekend. They had buffet for dinner instead of a la carte probably because of the crowds. We got a place to sit quickly. Sadly for the price we paid, the food was neither very tasty nor was much variety. All the people eating with me (all Indians) were disappointed.

This place has excellent punjabi, we went for the daal makhani and paneer palak, the serve size is huge, 1 curry suffices for 2 people, the taste is amazing and much dhaba like, only flip side was that the service is little slow, but given the yummy food, can live with it....it's not a fine dine if that's what anyone...

Probably the best Indian food I have had in United States! The food was awesome, safe on stomach and big time resembles Home cooked food. We tried both Ala Carte and the Buffet, both were delicious.

There are many Indian restaurants around the Falls and we're lucky we picked the Hut. The biryani, papadum, and chickpeas were excellent. We ate on the covered patio and the service was great!

All the food and drinks served were in nice clean plates and the tea was especially wonderful (like home away from home). It was refreshing to eat in the open instead of being in a crowded food court.
