Punjab Grill is one of the most recognisable fine-dine Punjabi restaurant chains, and this regally appointed space fits right in. With all the dining action only on the 1st floor, it does seem a tad cramped but the plush upholstery and languid vibe quickly settled me in. I started with a platter of the Grill’s signature 'Kababs' and wondered if they were worth that little lion-head on the menu. 'My Chaamp Tajdar' seemed to be assembled by different cooks - one cut was dried out and gnaw-ey while the other revealed rare meat behind a wet coat of masala. 'Dahi Kababs' were fried adeptly but got a bit monotonous with uniform texture and restrained spicing, as did the 'Moist Chicken Seekh'. The standout piece of grilled meat was the 'Punjab Grill Chicken Tikka', with a distinctly smokey char around tender thigh cuts. The hits and misses continued in the main course, with a terrific 'Dal Makhani', creamy and decadent without an overload of milk fat, being let down by limp 'Amritsari Kulche' which tasted like undercooked dough.
