This is a modest place in a forgettable location that I've been visiting regularly for at least the last half-dozen years. I've always been amused to find it ranked as the #1 restaurant in Quincy, figuring that Mr. Punjab must have a very large family. Our most recent visit, however, underscored what has always been true. This is a place... More

There is nothing about this restaurant I don't like! I especially love the eclectic clientele. Food, service and ambiance excellent! I have never had a bad meal and leave feeling as though it was a great value. Best naan I've ever tasted! Takeout is just as consistently good as dining in.
