Worst service. Totally disappointed with the service and taste of the food of this restaurant. I had to wait for 30 minutes for getting a table at this restaurant and then again 30 minutes for food. No one was available to clean the tables properly and no one was bothered to come for the order, I had to call them... More

Quiet and dark little restaurant. Good service and one is advised of a twenty minute wait for the food. Excellent dal makhni, tandoori chicken and roti. But wow!! The tandoori trout was superb. It was well spiced and cooked to perfection, served with crisp tasty chips. Only criticism, coleslaw was too salty. Loved the food and would visit again.

We had to wait for half an hour to get 2 seats at lunchtime. The place was really congested. However, the food was delicious. It took our attention away from the fact that the ambiance was not that good. The staff was helpful too.

Sher-e-punjab probably is one of the most commonly used name for restaurants. This restaurant on the mall road was an average one. It has compact sitting area, average tasting food with more than average pricing. They have more people to serve than the guests. You may want to choose other local restaurants for eating.

Food is just fine, nothing special about it, very limited menu for vegetarians, overpriced items and very bad service, no mode of digital payment

Its an average restaurant. The food variety of this hotel is not like punjabi taste. As its name indicate it does not have total punjabi taste in food, but the food is okay to have.

What to write? They are far away from hospitality. Food is a pathetic. Restaurant filled with mice. 1 time you think it's a restaurant for mice or people. Please don't go there. Better to go to Jashan with open terrace

Excellent restaurant located right on Mall Road. They have got an awesome menu, at an affordable price. What stands out is the huge quantities they give for the pricing, which is very reasonable.
