We've been coming to the Punjab Tandoori for nearly 20 years and now make a 50 mile round-trip to get there. We've seen some changes over the years and, not having not been for a couple of months, we were excited to find a new menu had been introduced. As far as I could tell nothing had been removed but plenty had been added including a variety of new vegetarian dishes. The food was as good as ever and the new dishes we tried were all very tasty indeed. The majority of the menu features North Indian cuisine, as the name of the restaurant suggests, but there is also some very authentic South Indian food available including the popular dosas.
I can honestly say we've never found anywhere else quite like the Punjab for its food anywhere in the UK. There are a couple of places that are similar, and as good in their own way, but the Punjab stands out as one of a kind. So much more is on available than the usual Anglo-Indian offerings (although chicken tikka masala and the other usual suspects are available if you so desire). The staff are very friendly, extremely knowledgeable (about cricket as well as food!) and happy to offer advice should you need it.
If you've never been to the Punjab I can't urge you strongly enough to make time to give it a try. You'll never think of British Indian restaurants in the same way again.
