Pune’s Mini Punjabb is an ambient and classy looking casual dining restaurant located on the Salunke Vihar Road in Kondhwa, Pune. Serving a palatable combo of Tandoori items, Chinese, Mughlai, North Indian cuisines with a ‘Punjabi tadka’.
The Restaurant is well-lit and has a subtle ambiance. With a seating capacity of about 40 people on the ground floor and about 20 more on the deck above. The lower floor has an orange theme with artsy wallpapers on all walls while the Deck carries a Silver-on-Blue decor with matching Dining furniture.
Punes Mini Punjabb has its staff in white uniforms mostly looking proactive even in odd work hours or low business hours. The time taken from ordering to being served on the table depends on the amount of tables occupied at the moment. But I wasn’t very disappointed to wait for 15-20 minutes considering the rush due to the take away orders simultaneously happening outside. The waiters were prompt and available at a single call. The restaurant also accepts Credit and Debit cards.
I went with the staff’s recommendation and ordered a Chicken Makarana Leg and a Chicken Dum Biryani. I even repeated the Makarana Leg. It was a large chicken leg tenderly cooked in Tandoor with loads of Garlic and butter topped with herbs that made the Makarana so much tastier than a normal Tandoori Chicken leg. Pune’s Mini Punjabb’s chicken Biryani is a famous dish in the Kondhwa region and I have known people talk about it. Both the mentioned items have been a best seller since almost 1.5 years.
Punes Mini Punjabb’s delivery personnel at an average take 20 mins for delivery. The food is often delivered hot. The delivery personnel wear customised Polo tees with Pune’s Mini Punjabb embroidered on the left flank. There is no minimum order requirement and the restaurant delivers food even if the order consists of just two tandoori naans. The general service area is Kondhwa, Fatima Nagar, Undri, Mohhammadwadi, Bibvewadi and Wanowrie. At high business times, the delivery might be delayed up to 40 mins.
Overall, Punes Mini Punjabb is a totally recommendable weekend lunch and dinner place. If it’s not possible to sit in and dine, free home deliveries or take aways can be certainly suggested. After all, it’s the quality and taste of food that makes this restaurant a hit.
