Classic Punjabi Fare & contemporary take on modern cuisine is what you seek, then head to Punjabi Bistro. Located in Inorbit mall, is the latest entrant to the ever-expanding North Indian restaurant scene in Hydreabad. Not going completely by the name, it serves a host of delicacies from the north of our country, from the dals and curries of Punjab to kebabs of Lucknow, chaats, and tikkis of Delhi, and the legendary dishes from the states of Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. Moreover, you will get classic flavors and tastes, with a few twists.

The place is done up simply, with a bar and an outdoor space too, providing a beautiful view of the hanging bridge. This 120-seater restaurant oozes sophistication, with finely done interiors, giving diners a feel of sensory experience.

We were treated with mini Dhai Bhalla, the amuse-bouche of the meal, which is delicious with the right amount of sweet and sour flavours. While vegetarians have many options to try, I recommend the Beetroot Peanut Tikki. The sweetness of the beetroot paired well with the nuttiness of the peanuts. The addition of chilli made this a winning combination. Bharwan Khumb peshawari; mushrooms stuffed with cumin & garlic sautéed spinach, char grilled in pickling spice marinade. Up next was Paneer Tikka Multani — tikkas stuffed with mushroom and sauteed spring onions. This was a nice twist to the usual paneer tikkas. 

In non-veg starters, one of the dishes that really stood out was the excellent preparation of Bhatti da Murgh with the whole tandoori chicken marinated with hung curd and punjabi masala, steamed and grilled in tandoor was a terrific burst of flavours. The other dishes that left a mark were Mutton Hara Dhania. The rich amalgamation of tender mutton and fresh coriander leaves. 

The main course was a perfect score with every dish outplaying the other. There are very few things that can be as comforting and humble as Dal and Roti. Dal Moradabadi, moong dal topped with fried moong and chopped onions, tomatoes and coriander, gave the dal a chaat-like taste. With its fine tempering of spices, onions and tomatoes tastes much like the dal served at home. It is cooked well and is comfort food that goes best with the rotis on offer. And with Murgh Makhani, they sealed the deal for me, what a stunner!.A spicy tomato-based curry, cooked with chicken, packed with extremely creamy sauce. 

From Stuffed Paratha to Kulchas to Garlic Naans, they have it all.

In Punjab Bistro, they have you covered with lip-smacking desserts, with a hint of fusion. The Pan Kulfi comes sprinkled with sabza and pomegranate seeds, powdered jaggery and raisins on a plate with rose petals. Jalebi with Rabri was amazing , and I couldn’t stop myself from devouring it the minute it came on the table.

Another original creation at Punjab Bistro is the popular Paan Shot. The paan is a traditional Indian digestive and breath-freshener made with betel leaf, areca nut, and slaked lime paste, often chewed after a meal. The Paan Shot at this place, Punjab Bistro is a creative take on this tradition — the secret recipe of ingredients , liquefied into a freshening concoction that has become the perfect final note to a meal at Punjab Bistro. 

With such extensive offerings, Punjab Bistro lives up to its promise of not only serving authentic Punjabi food but also classics from other parts of the country.
