The Feast !!
We were served the Signature Series where every dish is carefully and expertly crafted. The food here had an exceptional mix of spunky ingredients and different cooking techniques. Punjab Grill brings out that rustic punjabi flavour alive in a traditional clay oven. May it be a vegetarian/non-vegetarian Punjab Grill never fails to excite their patron's palate.
We started with the Paneer Multan, where the finely layered paneer was coated with subtle spices, wrapped in a golden marinade and tandoor cooked. The dish had an inviting smoky aroma and was a pandora of flavours.
The Beet-root Peanut Tikki is an irresistible ruby red colored beauty interestingly done with peanut butter and cheese stuffing. I bet this can bring alive even the most mundane affairs. I liked the Dahi Ke Kebab too, it was perfectly done with a crisp outer layer and melting stuffings of pepper and hung curd inside.

Chaamp Taajdar is tender lamb chops mixed in with a range of flavours and charcoal grilled. This was a "Star Dish". All my convives loved this preparation and went so cray over this. A stunner of recipe which is completely spice-packed, flavourful and a fragrant starter.
Tandoori Pomfret was too good, Again a favourite of everyone. Yaeh it was a tribute to the cuisine of five seas. So soft and tender which had its own voww-factor and the flavour-punch left us all finger-licking.
We went in ordering some Garlic Naan which went very well with the Murgh Lababdar, juicy chicken pieces bathed in a dreamy creamy gravy topped with oodles of cheese. Cheese lovers go for it. I know its gonna be a paradise to them, Raarhya Meat at Punjab Grill , is undoubtedly one of the best lamb dishes i've ever had. Juicy mutton chops and the finest lamb minces were perfectly spiced up and cooked to perfection and they were criminally addictive i say!!
Not to forget the Sarson Da Saag, i must admit here that, this is the best Sarson Da Saag i have ever had in the city. The blend of combined greens create a sensation with a hearty and crisp Makki ki Roti, when accompanied with some white butter and jaggery. awwww it was heaven, a meal in the form of a combo.

Daal Punjab Grill is a queen of all the daal preparations i should say, very creamy and rich which went very well with the rotis and Jeera Rice.

The Happy Time Now:
What desserts can do, make people happy right?? Punjab Grill perfectly made us happy with their Gulab Jamuns, seems that they show their love towards their patrons with the Gulab Jamun size... Yaehhh, it was so huge and we were served with three flavours, nutella stuffed, nuts stuffed and the old-school style gulab jamuns.
Hmmmm, now who would not like these flavours.. So, we just digged in and every bite of it was like going to heaven and coming back. They din't stop with this, we were also presented with the Flaming Gulab Jamuns ( jamuns in rum ) which was indeed a visual treat. Kulfi Falooda, a unique one, plate kulfi's served with pistachio and almond shaving and noodles.
The Show Stopper : Paan Shots
Paan shots is an after-meal sweetener which gives a break from the customary chewing of pan. One of the best after meal treat that i've ever had. We all enjoyed this stuff , deserves a 5/5 here..
