We chose to do takeout tonight, and even found an online deal for 10% off $30 or more through Punjab’s website. Since we both love paneer, we opted for the shahi makani and the coconut korma as our mains, and asked that the dishes be very spicy... We also ordered the vegetable samosa as our appetizer, and the pashwari naan instead of our usual cherry, coconut naan. Altogether, with the 10% discount applied, I think our bill ran about $35. Like always, the 3 piece vegetable samosa was extremely flavorful, of good size, and reasonably priced at just $4... Our intention was to share the entrees, but we ended up only eating half of each type individually... My husband had the shahi makani, while I had the coconut korma. Apparently, according to my husband who tried a bite of my dinner, the spice level of mine was far hotter than his. Nevertheless, he still enjoyed his meal a lot, and said he would get it again. I too liked my paneer, and thought that the heat was perfect! Thank goodness we wanted to try a new bread this time, because the pashwari naan was much more interesting than our standard garlic or cherry naan, and sweeter as well. Punjab Palace is a solid choice, and the one Indian restaurant we always come back too time and again.

This is one of our favorites in the Allston area! Consistently great food, ready quickly, and generous portions for the price. We've tried other Indian restaurants, but Punjab Palace stands out. We usually get the Chicken Tikka Masala and Chicken Curry.

Excellent service and a very friendly atmosphere. Best Indian food I’ve had in a long time. Enjoyed it for lunch and plenty of leftovers for dinner. Highly recommend as a must try if you’re in Boston.

We will definitely return as the food was amazing! Wonderful flavors...... the only negative was the spacing of the arrival of food. Our appetizers all arrived at the same time. But two out of the three of us had our entrees arrive while there was a good five minute wait for the other diner’s food. Not sure why— no explanation given. But it changed the pace of our meal.

I have eaten at/from this restaurant many times and the food is generally good. The service has been inconsistent though, depending on who waits on you. Some of the older folk do not seem to understand customer service well and it doesn't help if you reserve a table. You will still have to wait 20 minutes to be seated.

Stopped in there last night after a show at BU with my wife. First, the servers were great! Very friendly and attentive, they really knew the food well and made some great recommendations while being able to describe the differences between the different dishes. My wife and I frequently enjoy Indian food and both tried new dishes we had not had before. The food was very good, clearly freshly made and we both had chicken dishes that had plenty of tasty, juicy chunks of chicken breast. The Chai tea was very good also as well and the Naan. Overall, we would definitely eat here again if we find ourselves back in the area. Keep up the good work!

I usually don't go into Indian restaurants outside of the UK and Ireland with high expectations as they generally aren't as good, probably because they don't have the same spices or chefs, but I was impressed by this one. We had a very enjoyable lunch which we felt was great value. The mains came with rice, popadums and coffee yet still cost below $10. There was an excellent selection of beers also and the service was very friendly, couldn't fault them in any way. I liked how they asked if you wanted your curry mild/medium/hot. We both enjoyed our curries and will hopefully eat here again

The chicken dish we had with cashew sauce was delicious but my draw dropped to receive a text from the driver to meet him 'downstairs' in my building to get my food. NEVER has anything like this EVER happened when ordering online! I did NOT respond but once he reached the building he phoned twice with a demand to come down. He then texted me 'I am placing your food near doorman please take it, i have other deliveries , have to deliver before 11'. INCREDIBLE. I will NEVER tip in advance to avoid this inconvenience in future!!!

Erika, I apologize for what sounds like a miscommunication lapse with our driver. It's our goal to always deliver top notch service and it sounds like we fell short -- I'll be sure to look into things to see what may have happened. I'm glad to hear you loved your order, though.

We had really good food at lunch. We shared naan, chick tikka Masala and shrimp curry. All were excellent. Food is definitely 5 stars. The only reason for the 4 star rating was the wait staff - not terribly friendly. Would still return when I am in the area.
