My wife and I travel and constantly seek out Indian restaurants. We've been the Shere Punjab four times now and can say hands down, they have the very best Indian food on the East Coast. The restaurant is clean and pleasant atmosphere. Staff is friendly and full of warmth and character. Highly recommended...especially their Chicken Vindaloo at 7.5/10 on the... More

I know nothing about Indian cuisine, so a friend and I explored this restaurant at lunch several weeks earlier to our satisfaction. The host responded to all my naive questions, made suggestions for my sensitive palate, checked in several times to see is we were pleased, and suggested lamb curry my next visit. Today we chose Shere Punjab with a... More

I can't say enough good about Shere Punjab. I've eaten here a handful of times now, and each time have been impressed. I often come as a part of large groups, and not once have the servers done anything but do their best to accommodate us, even if we have an extra person or two who decided to join us... More

Until this year I swore up and down that I didn't like Indian food. My wife and mother were always telling me how much I would love it, so this year on my birthday I finally gave in, and they were totally right. We recently went back for my mother's birthday. For starters our takeout order was very big and... More

Amazing fresh and authentic Indian food. The butter chicken and the coconut naan are ridiculously good. This is a gem of a place, you can smell the quality spices several stores before you arrive. Loved it.

I have eaten here several time and I am never disappointed. This time I had the shrimp curry and the Saag Pakora, a dish made with vegetable fritters in a spinach sauce. Both were excellent brings me back to my trip to India a few years ago. The prices are reasonable and the food is plentiful. I recommend highly.

My first time trying Indian food...loved it. My boyfriend eats it alot and agreed this place is fantastic. Service out of this world and the suggestions made by the server were excellent. Worth the drive!

We just went there today for lunch. Walked in and asked if we oils sit outside - the server didn't look happy about it but pointed to the table (tables were pretty dirty and the ground had food scattered around) The food was okay but the service lacking.... We felt like an inconvenience to the waiter that pretty much threw... More

Really great food. My wife and I both got vindaloo dishes and asked for maximum spicy, and they definitely delivered. Super spicy and delicious to boot. We also got the naan, which is great, and two samosas, which are as good as everyone says. We don't go out to restaurants much, but the next time we do it will probably... More

Nice little casual restaurant in downtown Brunswick that has been there for years. When we're in the area and looking for Indian this is our first choice. Service is almost too fast, so if you want to enjoy a glass of wine or beer first, you might consider delaying your order. Regarding quality, we've eaten here several times and it... More
