First time in Papakura, thought I'd give the local Indians a shot. It was no where near as good as I expected and every so often I bit into a piece of herb and it was very over-powering which kind of ruined the experience. The dish was semi-warm and the naan bread was not as cheese & garlicy as I... More

Punjab has a very good kitchen curries as mild or hot as you want. Service is pretty good, water jug provided as you sit, orders taken promptly. Décor leaves a lot to be desired & lets place down.

A fairly standard Indian restaurant -- the usual menu, well prepared, with good service. A bit noisy the night i was there, but the place had a big group and put on a danceing show.

Excellent, fast service every time. The atmosphere is pleasant and the food is delicious every time. Parking is the only issue with this little place

Very cheap but excellent value for the money. Enjoyed many lovely dinners there, consistently good quality. Busy take out service spoils the atmosphere a bit.

They have sit down as well, and the place is good for that, but we tend to use thier take-a-way service. The food is not as nice as it used to be, seems to have all the same taste to it, might be because we go late in the evening.

whenever I go here, I always ask for the meal to be prepared "Indian style" ... ie no sugar and no cream added to "taste " for kiwis, the food is then wonderful .... and the smiles back from the people is just as good !!

This was our experience of eating here, although our fellow diners have been here a few times. We opted for the set menu. The entrees arrived after a short wait, the mains followed a short time after. The portion size was good for five diners, there was not much left over. The staff were friendly even for a busy evening.... More
