Although it’s in a grungy tourist zone, Punjab isn’t just for tourists—you’ll see North Indian expats picking up a taste of home, too. That’s a strong sign for authenticity, and the food, which is prepared with great care, delivers in ample portions and bold flavors. The dining room isn’t much to look at—to call it unassuming would be generous. But then again, after a few days of noisy theme park fakery, you may find acoustic tiles and blank diner tables to be soothingly authentic, too. This is a marvelous place to try things you haven’t before: The menu carries the beloved staples and explains them for those who don’t know their Indian food, and the staff, strong on service, knows the difference between mild and spicy. Delivery is free. This is not Punjab Indian, an inferior buffet joint nearby; you want the Kitchen.
