Was at a time the case best eating place in chandigarh, the popularity has now affected the owners and the casual attitude is visible in the preparation and standards.

Be warned, Punjabi cuisine is heavy and not exactly what your cardiologist might recommend. That said, it's an indulgence worth the experience.

The waiters were courteous and patient as I asked for recommendations. I chose... More

Though much hype is created around this place the food is just like any other Dhaba. Also the service quality is average .

I've only had the butter chicken here but it's some of my favorite that I have had in India. Some of my Indian friends claim they find the food slightly over rated and the butter chicken isn't "traditional" but I enjoyed it more than other restaurants in northern India

The dhaba is well known for its food. No doubt about it. But its overcrowded most if the times and sitting arrangements is in open roadside.

I had heard so much of the Pal Dhaba but was quite disappointed with the visit. The food was average, the seating was like a canteen and to that extent the prices were not cheap.

One of the best Chicken Masala I ever had in my life.. Combine that with Tandoori Roti and Zeera Fry and it becomes a lethal combination... Mutton Curry is also good... Must-visit place in Chandigarh for foodies...

From the aroma to the ambience to the friendly staff.. PAL Dhaba is good for what it serves best NON VEGETARIAN FOOD. We tried their world famous Butter Chicken and it lived up to its reputation. We also asked for some Mutton Kaleji and it was to die for... awesome dish... MUST ORDER ITEM... we also had mutton Rogan Josh... More
