Punjab Cafe is unassuming from the outside, a step inside, calm and inviting, and most of all - transporting. Soothing tabla and sitar music, welcome you as waitstaff deliver authentic North Indian dishes and intriguing relishes in a variety of platters, ramekins, and shallow bowls with carved handles. Dining at Punjab Café is stepping in to our own kitchen as family and friends with service that is friendly and familiar. From blending each spice and dough mixture by hand to cooking each dish to order. We take great pride in providing our customers with authentic Punjabi cuisine, made from scratch and fresh premium ingredients .The restaurant is a lovely, inviting escape from contemporary pressures. And the owners, chefs and staff are devoted to their craft and in sharing the wonderful mysteries of Indian cuisine with the community.

Great variety at the buffet

I stopped here last night for something different for dinner. I ordered the vegetable samosa and they were delicious with that tamarind and onion relish. The Aloo Gobhi (potato & cauliflower) side dish was wonderfully spicy with lots of exotic flavors. The Tandoori Tikka was very good and light. It was like a deconstructed kebob with the chicken and the... More

We've eaten at the Punjab several times over the years and have always been pleased with the food. Most of the other diners have been Indian or South Asian, which probably speaks to the menu's authenticity. The prices are very reasonable, the wait staff attentive and prompt.

After our local Indian restaurant in Plymouth closed down, we did find an alternative in Falmouth, but wanted to try another spot. We found Punjab by accident and have been regulars ever since. It's our go to after coming back from Logan, and we'll pop up from the Cape when we are craving great Indian food in a welcoming environment.... More

I'm a huge fan of indian food and the Punjab is a legend. I grab take out regularly and it's always freshly made, hot and delicious. The nan bread is addictive. The family who own the restaurant offer great service, know me by name and go out of their way to accommodate me. Getting consistently great indian food isn't easy,... More
