It's hard to believe that Punjab Cafe is the top-ranked restaurant in suddenly restaurant-rich Quincy. The decor is modest, the prices are modest, even the servers are modest. Match these up with consistently excellent food, however, and the impressive ranking begins to make sense. There's nothing wildly creative about Punjab's menu. It's standard Indian fare, well-executed and impeccably served by... More

We do not know Indian food but wanted to give it a try. PunJab was recommended by a friend. It was very good. The staff was attentive but not overbearing, and were able to describe the many dishes offered. We have been there 3 times, ordering something different each time. Everything was always very delicious, with good-sized portions. The location... More

The food was excellent - good for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. Service was quick. We were glad we ate there again.

When you enter an Indian restaurant and it's full of Indian families eating you know it's going to be good. Friendly, pleasant space, great food. I've eaten here many many times and always enjoy my meal and the atmosphere. Nothing fancy, just good Indian food freshly prepared with great care and served by smiling waiters.

We have always had fantastic meals at Punjab Cafe, conveniently located on 3A in Quincy. Their lunch prices are excellent value. While portions are smaller, add an order of nan bread for a perfect lunch! Dinner or brunch are good values as well, though more expensive than the lunch menu. Clean, comfortable seating, nicely decorated, and friendly staff--appropriate for families,... More

Love this restaurant, the food is always really fresh and spicy. Pew get the garlic Naan and the mixed grill which gives you a bit of everything. Wait don't go so there is more room for me!

I have been eating at the Punjab since it opened. It is the best Indian food in the vicinity. The food is great, the service is excellent, and the restaurant is clean. The restaurant has been upgraded and expanded. The owners are always on site, and pay attention to their brand. I would rate this as a great experience.

Have been eating here for 15 years, and have never had a disappointing meal. I especially love the weekend lunch buffet, but get there early as some items run out or get picked over.

Went for dinner during the work week and met long time friends. I never remember the names of what we ordered -- marsala, naan, some kind of lamb, rice, something else -- everything is always well prepared. Spices, service, atmosphere --Wait-staff extremely friendly and helpful.
