“Fair deal... not too hot not too bad either”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

We were there on a rainy summer evening. The photos were a little misleading as we were expecting a proper punjabi dhabha... but in a hill town, with all the space constraints, the 'Old Sher-e-punjab' has a narrow entry. The decor is very frenchy (for the want of a better word), with red and white chequred linen and red melamine crocekery. The place is a little crowded (narrow seating area) with little ventilation, even though the place is air conditioned. The menu card can provide some entertainment with mis-pronounced items.
Service is quick, the food is average. Typical punjabi restaurant fare, butter / ghee / oil are liberally used. Dont experiment, stick to regular punjabi fare (butter chicken / paneer butter masala) for these are decent, conti / chinese are likely to disappoint.
The ambience outside is what you expect in a hill station and nice.

“Good food”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Food was good... there are many Sher-e-Punjab in the same area so difficult to find the old one. Service was slow as there was not sufficient staff but the food was worth waiting for long
