Punjab Grill, Phoenix Market City, Viman Nagar

I will get straight to the point here, I didn’t find any of the preparations out of the ordinary during our Dinner outing at the Punjab Grill.
The fact that it prides itself to be a fine dining North Indian outlet and charges exorbitantly for the same, it was bit of a letdown on both quantity and quality. Below is what we ordered and the respective ratings:

Non Veg Platter – 3/5. Firstly it’s a sin to call this a platter primarily due to its quantity. The chicken tikka and mutton chops were good, however the chicken Malai Tikka was absolutely bland (You get awesome Malai Tikka in Atmosphere 6) and the Mutton Seekh Kebab was not tender. For me the ultimate seekh kebab has to be tender and tasty at the same time, if it’s a little hard it’s a deal breaker for me.

Badaami Chicken Shorba – 3.5/5 – This was a tad different from the usual Chicken soups and we liked it.

Chicken Lababdar – 3/5 – It was an Okayish kind of thick Gravy preparation, mildly spiced, with a decent portion size (Full portion is enough for 4 and half for 2). There was nothing unique about the preparation but it wasn’t bad either.

Be careful while ordering Naan as 2 butter Naan can be sufficient for 3 people so always order one at a time:)

Overall if I talk about Value for Money it disappointed me a bit as I am ok to spend much more on a quality dining experience than I usually do but if you spend close to 2300 bucks for 3 people but your taste buds are not exactly satisfied then you know it’s not the experience you were looking forward to.

Lastly, the service is good, ambience is OK and the food is alright (not bad) but doesn’t give me any reason to spend extra when I can have a much better meal at half the price at so many other places.
