Delicious Indian food in a charming and quaint town

My husband and I found this restaurant on trip advisor as it was close to where we were staying. I am vegan and had the $12.75 Baingan Bhartha fresh eggplants roasted in a clay oven and cooked with green peas, fresh tomatoes, onions, ginger and garlic. It was delicious!! I ordered a 3 out of 5... read more

I really like the food in this place. Having been to several Asian countries, it seems very authentic and well-prepared. I was worried that recent "upgrades" from very basic BYO to fancier bar and restaurant would change everything. I am pleased to report that the food is still excellent.

I highly recommend the Reshmi Kabob and Chicken Biryani- both scrumptious. The server was very friendly and atomosphere attractive. The prices are reasonable and downtown Media is fun a place to walk around.

I enjoyed my meal at Shere E. Punjab. The service was the best part, but the food was also very enjoyable and the portion sizes were generous. It was on the pricier side ($12-$15 vegetarian entrees), but the sauce had the perfect spiciness level for me (I ordered a 2 on a scale of 1 to 5). I thought the... More

We think this place has the best Indian food in the Philly area. We have been going here for years. Five of us went on New Year's Eve and they had their regular menu, not like others with limited selection and higher prices for the night. As always I have the Chili Chicken and the garlic Naan. Both were prepared... More

So a friend and I went for dinner here tonight and were delighted with everything. She had the goat curry and I had the chicken biryani, and we shared as both portions were large. The garlic naan was crisp on the outside yet soft and chewy on the inside. The waiter was prompt and courteous, not overly familiar. The prices... More

Good value and great food with many vegetarian options. Being able to choose the level of spice/heat from 1-5 was good. Really enjoyed and would visit again if I could. Hint - order the mixed breads.

The food at this restaurant is equal or better than most higher priced places. I particularly go for the Chili Chicken, which is the "Chef's Special". You can choose the amount of heat. Excellent service. And it's BYOB.
