Soothing tabla and sitar music, welcome you as waitstaff deliver authentic North Indian dishes and intriguing relishes in a variety of platters, ramekins, and shallow bowls with carved handles. Dining at Punjab Café is stepping in to our own kitchen as family and friends with service that is friendly and familiar. From blending each spice and dough mixture by hand to cooking each dish to order. We take great pride in providing our customers with authentic Punjabi cuisine, made from scratch and fresh premium ingredients .The restaurant is a lovely, inviting escape from contemporary pressures. And the owners, chefs and staff are devoted to their craft and in sharing the wonderful mysteries of Indian cuisine with the community.
