Punjab, also spelt Panjab is a state in the northwest in the Republic of India forming part of the larger Punjab region. The term Punjab comprises 2 words: “punj” meaning five and “ab” meaning water, thus the land of the five rivers.
Fresh water, fertile land and pasture all contribute to provide the Punjabi people with all the freshest ingredients which are used to prepare a vast array of Punjabi Cuisine.
Punjabi dishes are rich in taste yet simple and fascinating and will suit even the most complex of palates. Eleven years after arriving in South Africa from Ludhiana, Punjab Province, India, Mr Kumar has immersed himself into our local hospitality industry and has successfully opened his latest venture, The Punjabi Restaurant in Hillcrest.
The Restaurant positions itself to be the number one eatery in providing patrons with the distinct, delectable and mouth watering authentic North Indian dishes that are prepared using only the freshest meat, vegetables and spices available. Using decade old recipes which are given a slightly modern twist, Mr Kumar knows exactly how to bring out the most in his dishes. Among our extensive menu you will find The Butter Chicken and Rogan Josh as well as the Korma dishes which have become our trademark and will leave you addicted to them once you have tried them out.
