Located in Collingwood, Punjabi Curry Café is that reliable local Indian restaurant you want to return to time and time again. That place which satisfies your curry cravings without breaking the bank.
Run by partners in business and life Raj and Krystle, the restaurant has been serving the neighbourhood for over 10 years. The menu specialises in North Indian cuisine, made from fresh produce.
The Chicken Tikka was a delicious starter. The boneless pieces of chicken were tender, having been roasted to perfection in a traditional clay oven. The Vegetable Platter is equally moreish and comprises a decadent assortment of perfectly made samosa, pakora, onion bahji and aloo tiki.
For mains, we adored the curries we had. The Chicken Korma was a beautifully mild and creamy curry .It was a crowd favourite which had us fighting for the last morsel. The Beef Vindaloo on the other hand was exceedingly tender and drenched in a heavier, full flavour-laden curry, courtesy of being cooked in a myriad of delectable spices while the Palak Paneer was a vegetarian curry which was yet another enjoyable dish. The flavours were strong and were a great pair with the fluffy naan and beady basmati rice.
Desserts continue the trend of the evening - Delicious. The ras malai was a particular hit – rich, creamy, and amply sweet with a generous hit of cardamom, it was the perfect indulgence.
