It used to be my frequently visited eating place before Covid shutdown and I loved the food. Today, after two years my wife and I went there for lunch. Despite our instructions for a very mild food, the food served was extremely spicy and chilly...hot to the point that I could not eat beyond the first bite. I complained and my food was returned. My wife was able to eat because she mixed it with plenty of rice which I do not eat. I paid by a credit card. After we left the restaurant I checked and found that the cashier had charged me for my food also. I went back and enquired. The cashier said that since the food was prepared for me I had to pay. I protested and got it refunded. Not a good restaurant policy. We also had ordered one dozen samosas to take away. Later at home we tried the samosas. The samosas and the two sauces were so chilly-hot that we could not eat. I guess they will see the dust bin. What a pity? The manager told me on phone that these were the best samosas in town. I do not believe it. I know samosas. My advise for those who want to savor authentic Indian food, not just taste chilies, should look for other eateries.More

I have been going to the Palace for so many years. I never get tired of eating there. Last week, after the reopening of restaurants, I went back just to enjoy the ambiance and the heartwarming service as well as the healing food. Thank you

Once upon a time this was my favorite Indian restaurant, well not anymore. Called in my order to go pick up. Ordered the curry lamb, what an insult. A medium sized plastic container full of sauce and literally 4 small pieces of lamb for $11.00...are you kidding me? How do you mock your customers this way? The vegetable biryani had a few sliced carrots and some peas and quite spicy. The chickpeas masala was not to our liking. The only descent thing was the naan bread. So basically I paid 34.50 to have rice. Sooo disappointed! I will stick to Beau Village on Jarry.More

I've eaten Indian food all my life, first in England and then in Canada so I know what I'm talking about. Punjab Palace is one of my favourite Indian restaurants in Montreal and the prices are very reasonable. I've never had a negative experience there...and I urge you to ignore the negative reviews from people who clearly have no palate for Indian food.More

This is the worst place to eat Indian Food. I don't recommend this place at all. The food was super oily and half cooked, no flavour on the food. The staff was not supportive.Really disappointed with this place being an Indian. I don't understand why...this place is rated 4.More

One of the worst Indian food. Meats are so dry. Taste so fake. And the waitress are all uneducated, don’t even speak English properly, forget about French. Overall it’s a waste of time and money.

I had eaten at this restaurant a few times and always enjoyed the food and service. But the latest visit made me certain never to eat at this restaurant. The service was slow and the waitress wasn't very keen to be helpful. The food was...horrible and we ending up not eating our meal and neither packing it. Most importantly, the hygiene of this establishment is concerning as I saw cockroaches.More

It's just an ok place to go for Indian food. Ambience is good.but definitely the food is not anywhere close to authentic Indian. We had naan and 2 curries there, and it was just ok. The chicken biriyani was too hot. The beef biriyani that...we took as take out had too much of masala added and it was over powered. The full tandoori chicken too was just ok. Won't repeat here.More

In the few blocks surrounding the Punjab Palace there are 6 to 8 other Indian restaurants. I've been to them all. Others have better service and atmosphere but I think for the price Punjab Palace has the best food. For the price I can't really...complain about anything.More
