We ended up here as we were so late most other places were closed/full and this looked quite atmospheric from the outside. However, the food was pretty basic and there was no wine list. Good for people on a budget or who are teetotal!

I have never had a "proper" curry in France in the 14 years I have lived here, but the meal at the Punjab was fantastic! Emma (the waitress) was extemely friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. She speaks very good English which is a plus. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant if you are a curry fan!

Just so you know, there is no alcohol sold here. However, I personally have never had Indian food with wine or even beer, so it was not a problem. With that aside, this place was such a treat for us that we went back twice for lunch. The food had great flavor, and they provided atchar and chutney on request,... More

We went as a group of four for lunch. Three of us got the lunch special (2 chicken & 1 fish). The chicken was nothing special and it was clear that some of the vegetables were not fresh. The fish was bland, but the real disaster was the lamb vindaloo. The sauce basically tasted like nothing and it was not... More

As a Chartres resident for a long time now, I am still looking for a good Indian place to eat... After ordering take-out a few times, I decided to bring some friends along and treat us to a real Indian/pakistani meal... While the setting is agreeable and the staff friendly at first sight, we were disappointed with the quality of... More
