MARINA BAY - Sleek, modern and sophisticated, Punjab Grill is one of only eight Indian restaurants to make it into the Michelin Singapore guide, which is actually not surprising considering it has been winning awards and accolades left right and center pretty much since it opened. As the name suggests, the cuisine hails from the Punjab region, which includes foodie centres like Amritsar, Multan, Lahore and Peshawar. Although the recipes pay homage to royal cuisine, they’ve also been tweaked with plenty of modern twists.
Why you should come here:
Conveniently located in The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, Punjab Grill offers the complete fine dining experience with eye-catching interiors awash in shining glass and metal, smartly dressed servers who are attentive and helpful, and rich dishes featuring a myriad of spices, herbs and fresh ingredients. They also have a wine list with over 200 labels from around the world.
What we love:
This place makes being vegetarian very yummy, as they have a ton of non-meat dishes that are every bit as hearty and flavourful as their protein counterparts. It’s a great place to go if you are entertaining guests or business associates, as it offers an elevated Indian gastro experience that never disappoints.
The Grilled Lamb is excellent, as it is braised slowly in an intoxicating infusion of cloves, black cardamom and kasoori methi, and then grilled to perfection in the tandoor. The Paneer Makhani (silky cheese in a tomato cashew gravy) and the Daal Punjratani (five different types of lentils simmered in a garlic, onion and tomato gravy) are also top choices.
If you want to try the full spectrum of flavours, book the Royal 10-course Indian Degustation Menu ahead of time and let the chefs take you on a foodie tour around Northwest India.
Set lunches and dinners go from $45++ to $98++, while a la carte meals will set you back about $100++ not including wine.
