I would surely recommend this place. Good food and North Indian experience in South India. There is two sections, outdoor and indoor Air Conditioned. Most people will stay outdoor to have the real Punjabi experience.

Over years, the restaurant has been a place of choice for good dhaba style punjabi food. The service is quick and efficient and the food taste is original. The choice of menu though is not vast.

Excellent tasting punjabi food, very authentic. Stick with the basics like dal, roti, saag etc. Service in the most traditional way. Don't expect a romantic quite dinner, you go for the food, which is truly good.

Great Food and at the most reasonable price... North Indian food is the best here in Chennai. Do try there lassi and the paneer tikka. Skip the buffet and go for ala carte
