The Great Punjab Restaurant and Bar
The Great Punjab Restaurant & Bar has been serving Since 1959.They began at Dadar, expanded to the popular Bandra location with its distinctive décor: bright blues, wooden beams and framed wheat stalks, and also have a small but cheery Powai branch.
Dara’s Dhaba is Punjabi Restaurant. It is located Dahisar West, Mumbai. It is open through the day and has something for everybody – areas for kids to play, an air-conditioned section, and a robust Punjabi menu with alcohol too. Sit on charpais or khatiyas with pillows and enjoy hearty Punjabi fare at tables amidst an acre of lush green space.
Tosa offers both outdoor and indoor (air-conditioned) seating. The eggplant with green onions was interestingly different from the usual Baingan Bharta style. The accompanying Bajra Rotis came with gur, white butter and a red Garlic Chutney. Other recommendations include Puran Poli with green Gujarat and Darbari Biryani.
At Punjab Grill’s Palladium, Jiggs and Zorawar Kalra’s third-floor mall restaurant showcases long, dropping, shiny chandeliers within a comfortable setting. Spread over 11,000 sq ft, the Juhu branch is the biggest they have anywhere in the country and it features an outdoor area, 50ft bar and even a private dining room (banquet hall available for parties too). Come here for robust, wholesome and skilfully cooked food of undivided Punjab
Laxmi Punjab Bar & Restaurant
Courteous and polite waiters at this clean, peaceful and air-conditioned Powai eatery that serves Indian as well as Chinese and comfortably seats sixty. Interiors are a bit dark, in spite of the light from the lamps on the false ceiling overhead, and the dark flooring as well as the maroon upholstery on the (comfortable) sofas only contribute further. Families come for the generous portion sizes and delicious food served by Laxmi Punjab Bar & Restaurant.
True to its name, this bar and restaurant is right next to the railway tracks leading to Chembur railway station. The theme is extended to the decor which is largely sleeper wood at the entrance and represents a log cabin. Frequented by the average joe who needs his daily or weekend quota of quarters, a night out with the boys – or in this case men – calls for a trip to Trackside.
It’s noisy and they don’t take reservations, but for the consistently good and affordably priced fare, it’s worth visiting one of their four branches. Enjoy the colourful, mismatched crockery, the menu on the blackboard, the dholaks and charpais in this large, comfy, buzzing, air-conditioned eatery and bar.
A board on an Andheri building’s dusty side lane. You have to pass wash basins, kitsch, posters and there, under dangling ping pong balls of light, an interesting ceiling made of egg trays (yes, egg trays!) and a space with yellow-and-red wooden chairs (reminiscent of nursery school days) every little thing they cook (well, almost) is magic. Robust, lusty flavours leap from the generous portions of the roundly spiced Punjabi fare, be it the Laal Mutton or the succulent Mint Nimbu Chicken.
Head here for the perfect Kakori kabab. It is the fanciest yet, with wooden exposed beams, stone floors and wooden chairs with engraved crests. Only the red spirals on the white tablecloths distract, but lets not make too fine a point of that as the food is as good as ever.
For a true-blue taste of Koliwada fish at its most piping hot, take a drive to the Punjabi Colony. Take bonnet service for your Fish Fry or Prawns Fry and enjoy them hot and spicy with onions and a dash of nimbu! While fish and chicken marinate in red Tandoori masala, and tandoors and grills smoke, the heat can become unbearable. You feel as though you’ve walked into a colony in Punjab.
