Shan-e-Punjab does not look like a high-class dining establishment, just a shed with a few tables on the edge of a small shopping centre, but this rustic setting just makes the quality of the food even more of a joy, The owner came across the visit whilst we were ordering, and he was able to ensure that the dish we...

we didnt have the best with regards to the food but no doubt the service was very good and the owners very pleasant people to have met.....maybe we got there very late and the cooks may have rushed with the food....

When you first see it, the place looks like it could have been abandoned already a while ago. Dont let that fool you, the food is awesome!

We thoroughly enjoyed 1 veggie and 2 different chicken curries. We all thought it was the best indian we have had in a long time. BUT do not order the tikka or seek kebab, they were both very overcooked. The breads were also excellent

The portions were small for the price being charged. The restaurant... More

Delicious Indian food - super tasty and quick service. The setting is not great, but a good experience. They do take away also. The vegetable balls are excellent!
