Taste of Punjab, Sunninghill, Johannesburg

I went to Taste of Punjab with a colleague of mine last night for a quick Indian meal. Our order was:

  1. Hot & Sour Soup – Quite decent, not really hot though, had to add a large amount of pepper to make it ‘hot’.
  2. Paneer Tikka Masala – Decent, but don’t expect the Indian taste here. At best this would be the distant cousin of Paneer Butter Masala you get in India. Tangy tomato-ish taste.
  3. Tandoori Rotis – Usual.

Point to note: Rotis are always served with rice here, so plan some room on your tummy accordingly.

Bill: 3 rotis, Soup (Split as 1/2), Paneer Tikka Masala together came to R 111 and some odd. 1 R = INR 5.57 last I checked. So around 550.

Quantity: Quite sufficient for 2 healthy eaters. We even had some rice left.

Service: As a standard, service is excellent in South Africa, with people being friendly. But, in return, we as customers are expected to return the politeness and if we’re to go about “ordering” them around, then I guess we won’t get stuff done over here.

Note: Water, Finger bowls etc. aren’t served unless you request for it. They won’t check with you if you need water. Whenever ordering for water, please mention if you want it with Lemon/Ice/Lemon + Ice/Plain/Mineral water. By default, what you get is tap water here, which is very much potable.

A stereotypical IT guy with a typical love for good food and good movies, not so typical love for books, rare love for the theatre arts and an abominable love for such lengthy sentences.

Naturally, with such varied interests, I come out with highly opinionated reviews ranging across categories and mindless blah blah blah.

I'm supposed to be living in Chennai, but I usually live in one of the social networks listed on my profile, since, hey that's so cool yo ;)
