One of the most respected Indian Cuisine is the Punjabi style, which owes much to the geographical position

of the Punjab itself. The land of the five rivers is an affluent agricultural region set in a plain in the foothills of the Himalayas with rivers running into fertile fields. Punjabi food requires a skilful blending and cooking to produce a rich taste and smooth texture. Balance is the key, as Punjabi spices gently promote (and never dominate) the flavour and texture of the primary ingredient, be it fish, meat or vegetables. Established in 1946, we are the oldest North Indian Restaurant in the UK, serving distinctive Punjabi cuisine to generations of diners in Covent Garden. Fourth generation family owned, we feature an eclectic Punjabi atmosphere with many historical pictures on our silk walls. If youre sensitive or allergic to any of our ingredients, please let us know.
