Punjab Grill is the premier award winning restaurant established by famed Indian chef Jiggs Kalra. It showcases signature dishes from Punjab and other classic favourites from traditional Indian recipes.
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.
We reserved this place for 9pm and were there at 8:58pm sharp. After being ignored for 15 minutes at the entrance, we tried to walk in and see if they notice us which is when we got our table.
We ordered a 5 course veg and a 5 course non veg degustation menu. We were very excited to visit this place but the ambience appeared bit disappointing. It seems they haven't cleaned the glasses for ages.
Our disappoinent reached another level when food started coming in. I think we made a big mistake coming here given that there are other good indian restaurants around here in Singapore. The only thing we liked was the sorbet after starters which was supposed to clear your throat. Not to mention their service is way to slow to be acceptable. If you have made this far reading this review, I really hope that of you go there you really know what you are waiting your money, time and calories on.
Food was okay for a top north Indian restaurant. We didn't feel there was anything special in the flavours and not a lot of value for the price.
Gol Gappa water lacked zing and was not cold water. Dahi Kabab so so. Malai Kofta lacked flavour. Sarso Ka saag was good.
Both Indoor and outdoor seating is below average.
Service was fine - they could use some extra waitering staff to cut down on serving time but the ones who served us were quite good.
Dont' think I will go back there again.
