Dadra's dhaba, about 30 kms from Thane on NH3, Nasik highway near Padagha is worth a try. Place is simple, with both- cots in open shed or table n chairs in a hall arrangement. Food is nice, both veg and non-veg options. Tandoori aloo in starters and Bhusari gosht in main course deservespecial mention.

We were 2 couple and 2 kids. Went there on New year's eve. Good Punjabi food. Lots of vegetarian food options. Liked the chass and papad tokari. If passing by the Mumbai Nasik highway must stop over for lunch/ dinner.

Loved the pujabi theme there. Went on my spouse's b'day. They have jute beds to give you a punjabi dhaba like feel. The food is rich there served with lots of butter. Chass and bevda chicken is a must try. Cost is also decent.

We have been having food Dara's Dhaba for last30 years. I like the ambience & seating arrangement. It give you feel of you are away from crowded city specially like Mumbai. Its just 1 kms away from city limit check naka. Food specially Tandoor are excellent. But quality level is not just as 20 years back, need to bring back.
