Had lunch here on my last day at Shimla. Ordered for Chicken and Mutton Biryani. Both were good. The chicken Biryani was a little oily though. The restaurant decor is very old and tired. The place is congested too.

People are really big fans of Punjabi food and I really don't know why? So far, my experience with Punjabi food has not been good despite trying out some of the best restaurants in Punjab itself. I am sure its not the fault of the food, but the restaurants themselves. However, Sher-e-Punjab is not an exception here. The food tastes... More

We had our lunch over here. The food is good, service is good as well. We ordered chicken masala and lamb. The restaurant is quite small.

Restaurant is situated on main mall road near to lift. Its small in size and cap occupy around 35 guest only. it has 2 floors and food quality is very good. Though the price is on higher side comparing its ambiance. Staff behavior is average. But a must try option in Shimla

Vegetarian food is awesome and delicious specially Sahi Paneer with tandoori roti and Mix rayta. Value for Money. Budget restaurant. Real Sher E Punjab. The BEST point is QUICK SERVICE , other nearby places do not even have food ready at 2pm in noon but this place set us everything ready within 10 mins.

Worst service. Totally disappointed with the service and taste of the food of this restaurant. I had to wait for 30 minutes for getting a table at this restaurant and then again 30 minutes for food. No one was available to clean the tables properly and no one was bothered to come for the order, I had to call them... More

Quiet and dark little restaurant. Good service and one is advised of a twenty minute wait for the food. Excellent dal makhni, tandoori chicken and roti. But wow!! The tandoori trout was superb. It was well spiced and cooked to perfection, served with crisp tasty chips. Only criticism, coleslaw was too salty. Loved the food and would visit again.

We had to wait for half an hour to get 2 seats at lunchtime. The place was really congested. However, the food was delicious. It took our attention away from the fact that the ambiance was not that good. The staff was helpful too.
