We've been visiting Punjabi Palace for years now, the chef gets it right every time which is great. The food is delicious and is always the "heat" we ask for. I like mine medium and hubby likes his "hot", it's always spot on.

This one holds my top spot for Indian in Brisbane. That being said I actually genuinely don't like any other Indian places in Brisbane particularly and this is the only one I would go out of my way to eat and and it is great. Wacky Wednesday's have me craving for some butter chicken with rice and garlic naan as... More

Especially like the Palak Paneer and Cheese Naan. But everything is great here. Never wait long for an order and staff are very nice.

We went on a Tuesday night and it was busy and bustling. I would definitely recommended booking if you have a big group or on a weekend. Fortunately, we were able to get a table by just walking in. Despite how busy it was, there was only 2 wait staff and they did an amazing job getting around to all... More

This is an authentic Indian Restaurant serving dishes from both north and south India. Price range was average with $50.00 for 2 people. The staff were efficient and friendly. This restaurant also served a huge amount of take away the night we were there. In my opinion the best value is to order the banquet if there is more that... More

We had the best curry since arriving in Brisbane 13 months ago. Service was lovely, menu wasn't too huge, so easy to decide and the curries were so yummy with lovely thick sauces. Even my 11 year old son who is usually really fussy about food completely cleared his plate. Would definitely go again.

This is the second time we have been here and we were not disappointed. Good food but the service a little slow. We would eat here again.

I always loved Punjabi Palace when I lived in Brisbane and thankfully in the 3 years since I moved away, it hasn't changed. Excellent food, good wine and reasonably priced.....what more can you ask for.

Had heard a little about this restaurant in advance but wasn't aware of its popularity until we arrived with our friends who'd suggested it. The young and very efficient manager arranged for a table amidst Indian decor designed to intrigue. The menu offers a great selection of Northern Indian food and is well set out with picture reminders to tempt... More

If you want the best curry you have ever had come to this place. The lamb just falls to pieces in your mouth. The chicken tikka masala is my favourite and hard to beat. Curries are about $19 which is about the going rate these days. They also have a $10 lunch special which is an absolute bargain.
