“Good food but a bit dear.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

Love Indian food. My friend took me here one night and liked the food but thought it was a bit too dear for my pocket. They give big portions though and the waiters are nice so probably would go here again.

I went with my wife to this restaurant on Wilmslow Road last year. Trust me, the service was poor. The staff were unfriendly.

“A time served success”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

The Punjab Tandoori restaurant is a time served success in Rusholme with a well deserved reputation as a bastion of Indian cuisine and dosas in particular. And we don't doubt that for a bit. We have been dining here for two decades as it's consistently a splendid experience. The restaurant is located in a rather unassuming position next to a bus stop that’s quite easy to miss, nonetheless The Punjab typically buzzes with locals, students, families, and academics, all seemingly satisfied patrons. The home style interior decor allows the beauty of the food to really shine through, and we typically start with the tandoori fish and pakora
accompanied by poppadums/pickles. However, it's the main courses that are our favourites: tandoori lamb chops, lamb passanda, gobi ghosht, tarka dahl, garlic nans, mushroom pilau - a straightforward selection maybe - but always executed really well, and that's why we return. Bright colours, rich, yet balanced sauces, and above average portion sizes... In a restaurant area that's always undergoing change, The Punjab is refreshingly consistent. The staff genuinely concerned about the quality of the food they prepare for you, and always appropriately attentive, with a smile. Going out for dinner in Rusholme should be a simple thing, but when it's done really well - like the Punjab - that's what makes the real difference, and your day...

“Delicious Masala Dosa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

We've been here lots of times we live close by the restaurant the staff are polite and knowledgeable. There's a great atmosphere. Starter i always order Masala Dosa its good portion with two different delicious souses. The main dishes are large with reasonable price. We tried King prawn methi which was really nice and spicy. This is the best restaurant at Rushlume.
