I was visiting one of my best friends in Jersey City a while back. She's Indian and knows how much I love Indian food so she decided to take me there one evening. Now I go back every time I visit her. We arrived late that first evening and the place was bustling. I think it was even a week... More

There paratha reminded me of authentic Punjabi parathas I had. Very affordable and home like food. The staff is helpful. Best part is its open late night. Don't miss on their chai. Better than other places in d neighborhood.

Food is bland tasting, employees do not understand much as the orders were wrong. Bathroom was filthy with bugs and no paper towels. Very dirty environment!!!

At first glance, you would probably walk by this restaurant and not give it a chance. If you want authentic Indian food then I would suggest to give it a try. It is located in the heart of the ethnically Indian part of Jersey City so it doesn't get more authentic than that. We orders several items and were surprised... More

Started off a couple of years back with the parathas from this place. really thats the only saving grace to this place. dont bother with any of the chats or other side dishes, atrocious to say the least and they have increased the price with a real deterioration in the quality

My wife and myself love to try out new places for Indian food and after doing a lot of tasting in restaurants in and around Jersey city, we have narrowed down Paratha Junction as one of our go-to restaurants. Our normal order includes Butter chicken and Garlic Naan along with some starters. The Veg Parathas are good. I would avoid... More

I generally get the dal and paneer tikka appetizer. It suits my appetite and taste. For some reason they keep running out of their lease agreements and have changed shops thrice in the past 5 years. The food hasnt changed and is still pretty good. I've heard complaints about their parathas, and would generally agree that they've lost consistency, but... More

I really wanted to like this place - the food was good but the kitchen was filthy, I wanted to hurl. I saw the kitchen while waiting in line for the bathroom and I wished I had never seen it. The kitchen is incredibly small so you can only imagine how bad it must be. ALSO, the waitstaff is great... More

Thanks for review. First of all, please accept our apologies with regard to the kitchen. As you rightly suggest, it is small, and it gets very busy. So depending on when you are visiting, and how busy we are, the kitchen may look like it's in shambles. It is cleaned periodically throughout the day. We will revisit this with the... More
