Marina Bay Sands has brought along a bunch of top notch restaurants, and Punjab Grill certainly matches up.
I recently went to the sprawling restaurant and tried their degustation menu ($95).
The soup was a chicken soup, which was somewhat clearer than the usual Indian soups that I am used to but it can get rather filling. If you are a small eater, take a few sips and move on.
The value in the degustation menu is the ability to try many items, and this is what I certainly did. Outstanding were most of the dishes, particularly the salmon tikka, the chicken tikka and mutton curry. A winner though has to be the tandoori tiger prawn, which was fresh, large and meaty. Lots of marination and hard work was clearly put into preparing the food.
Dessert was a rather heavy, with a large serving of kulfi.
Service was excellent. The staff were quick to let me know when I over-ordered and were ready to recommend their specialties. Also, it was rather efficient, and I was warned when certain items would take longer to arrive after informing them I was on a time constraint.
