Paneer tikka was tasteless the mixed starters were overcooked dosas were nice however my veg curry was just full ov lemon and ginger music was some techno stuff that they would play at bowlers rave party I had to ask them to change the music , they more atentive to the party upstairs the waiter just plonked the food on the table and shown how he just did not want to be at work as it was 11.30 sweets!!! We were given the bill before we even contemplated on the dessert menu such ashame I've read some good revues about this place but will defo not return as I did not feel welcome

I've been to the Punjab several times, and the food they serve is definitely much better than what you get in most curry mile restaurants. They serve unusual foods (e.g. dosas) and everything tastes fresh. The service is very friendly and they recognize you when you come more than once.
The last time I visited, the police came and arrested one of their workers, maybe an illegal immigrant? It was all a bit weird, but we still got our food, albeit a bit more slowly than usual.

Been going to Punjab Tandoori for >15 years, food consistently good. Excellent for vegetarians with many options and carnivores well catered for too.
One of very few places in Manchester where some South Indian food is offered - the dosas here are excellent, plus bhel puri, papri chat and some other dishes different to standard 'Indian restaurant' fare.
Food is well and subtly spiced rather than over-chilli hot as in many of the Curry Mile establishments. Friendly service and good value.

I often find the curry mile a bit like a Turkish bazaar- hard sell and people harassing you to come into their restaurants. Punjab didn't, so therefore I went in!
Staff are friendly and not too OTT, the range of meals is fab and the veggie meals are good quality and not frozen veg like a lot of them on the Mile. I had a garlic naan, complimentary popadoms and a veggie madras- superb. Only complaint was that the heating was on full whack and it felt a bit like a greenhouse, and the restaurant was a bit cramped. Hopefully, Punjab will expand as it's so popular!
