2006 BEST Indian Restaurant

Punjabi Dhaba

The garlic naan and chicken tikka masala might be enough to tempt us if we couldn’t get those standards at every other Indian joint. The draw at Punjabi Dhaba? Efficient service, ridiculously low prices, and a variety of authentic far—crispy samosas, complex curries, tandoori chicken, and lamb kebabs. Order at the counter, grab a seat (if any are open), then surrender to the flavors while taking in the rhythm of Bollywood films played at epic volumes.
