With new food crazes popping up all the time (I’m looking at you, dumplings, Mexican, American food et.al.), it can be easy to overlook the mainstays of Brisbane dining. Don’t get me wrong; I love all of the aforementioned crazes, but nothing can beat a great Indian curry.
Lovers of Indian food have been making regular pilgrimages to Punjabi Palace for over a decade. The West End restaurant is a cumin-scented hive of activity seven days a week, hosting a diverse range of diners from families to business groups to couples to rowdy party-goers. The public restaurant downstairs and private function room upstairs - accommodating up to 100 people - make up the dining areas.
Punjabi Palace’s popularity is not accidental. The food menu includes entrees, chef’s specials, meat and vegetarian curries, breads and accompaniments, and all of it is outstanding. Vegetarians will find their happy place, with the Butter Matar Paneer a particular veggie standout. Of the meat dishes, the Chicken Korma is a favourite. Of course, no Indian meal is complete without a naan bread, so try a garlic or a Punjabi naan to mop up every last drop of that delicious sauce. Best of all, if you can't remove your rear end from the comfort of your own couch, Punjabi Palace delivers to certain suburbs.
There is a well priced drinks menu and BYO is also available for dining in. What are you waiting for? Get a group together and affirm your appreciation of Punjabi Palace
